If I use SETFSB to OC, do I OC my graphics card too?

post #1 of 3

I used to use the onboard display so I don't know what will happen if I use sebfsb with a graphics card. Anyone has experience with this? I heard it is so easy to screw up graphics card so I want to know.

Nope.

SETFSB is only to set your Front Side Bus. CPU only, and it might or might not change your RAM speed.

You do need to set it every time your computer starts up though, and can't go that high because of voltage limitations.

Still, a good program for those who need it.

With my experience, setfsb affects the onboard display chipset too. Ram definitely affected. My last experience is that I can OC my celeron 420 from 2.66 to 2.73, then I guess it is the ram limit me OC more. The onboard display definitely is more powerful with higher fsb.
