2100 multipliers are locked, and you can't change that without taking a dremel to it. I have my ram voltage at 2.8

Like i said, I'm curious about changing the ram freq. with my motherboard I can run it below, at, or with the fsb speed.

also, how will changing the agp freq affect video performance, will setting it higher run the chance of damaging components or will it be fine, just allowing the card to run at what it wants to.

The 2100+ aren't locked. My Tbred B's isn't. I am not sure about the palomino's but I don't think it's locked either (that is w/ an nforceII mobo). I forget which one you have and don't feel like looking again.

W/ AMDs, expecially nforceII mobos, there is a good sized performance hit when not running your RAM 1:1 w/ everything else. I would run it at 1:1.

AGP frequency increase does very little. Most GPU's have plenty of bandwidth through the AGP slot, so they don't need more. So it's not worth it. Upping the AGP voltage is bad for the card, but I don't think upping the bus is too bad for it.

thanks, I think I'll hold with what I have for now, I'll probably upgrade when I get the chance.

I'll try running the agp bus at higher speeds and see if i get anything in the way of video performance.
