A7v8x-x

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
A7V8X-x, my mobo doesnt have the option to lock the agp/pci bus, so im pretty much limited.

What would happen if i just left the fsb at 166 but took the multi to 13.5 giving 2240mhz??

Or should I go for about 180 x 12.5? which setting is the most stable?

If you don't have PCI/AGP locks, then the higher multi will be more stable if it works. Isn't the A7V8X-X nForce2? If it is, then there should be a PCI/AGP lock somewhere.

All right, so I would go with the higher multi, just make sure you do the pin-mod to unlock the chip. If you raise the FSB, don't raise it more than 9MHz. Above that and it start's getting ugly. Trust me, raising my FSB by 11 is enough to screw up my stability.

dude, without water cooling and good ram, you wont get a good multi overclock, trust me...youll have to use the max 1.8v just to get 13 or 15.
