Can't get good OC when I lock my PCI-Express speed setting - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
default is like 1.3875 and I leave it at that. Timings are 2-3-2-5 and I have them set to 2.5-3-2-5 so I can go past FSB 220.

But I've tried voltage such as 1.5 on my cpu and timings like 3-5-5-14 but even with that my computer won't post with FSB 220 and PCI-Express speed setting locked.

nobody's has an idea about what can be done?

if you think I need to change mobo... so be it. Plz tell me wich mobo would help me getting an higher OC with locked PCI and that is cheap too.

You can run your PCI-E bus higher than 110MHz. I had that problem as well (I couldn't get past 218 with video) and raising the PCI-E bus fixed my problem. I think the issue lies in that the FSB and the PCI-E bus are tied somehow.

Like I've said, it happened to me and I've been running my rig at 115MHz on the PCI-E for the past 6+ months. No problems with anything. It should be safe for you to run that high as well but don't expect any benefits being gained from raising it.

Well tbh I ran my previous card 6600GT at 110MHz for over 8 months without any problems too. So that makes sens. Can anyone backup what chimra said? Would there be random crash and stuff before my video card stops working anyway (if it's really dangerous)?

I can't verify that random crash thing because, as I've said, my rig is pretty solid.

I think you need to ditch that base line board, and get something with some back bone. Everything else is pretty good but when you match that up with a crappy board you get crappy results.
