Is there any other way to check AGP bus speed other than using Sandra or Pc Wizard?

I am using A7V880 KT880 VIA mobo that has suspect AGP lock.
on sandra, the lock doesn't seem to be in effect as agp and pci goes beyond 66 and 33 mhz.
but on some internet msg boards, ppl were saying the numbers on sandra are not correct because it reports the divided number of FBS or watever and ignoring the lock in effect or watever.

I tried PC Wizard and it doesnt even give me a number on bus speeds. all it has is 8X no other number after or around any where.

so i would like to know if there is other way to check AGP bus speed to test agp lock in the bios works or not because many ppl were divided on this issue who are using the same board.

thanks in advance.

EDIT: i also tried clockgen. and it doesn't even give me numbers on AGP and PCI bus speeds.

cpu-z will tell you your agp speed and if you have fastwrites on/off I think. (go into the "motherboard" tab and check on the bottom where it says "graphic interface"

edit: ah you mean the agp bus frequency... nvm.

i didn't get my question answered.
i'll restate it.

Is there any program other than sandra,pcwizard,clockzen to check actual AGP, PCI bus frequencies to see if the AGP lock is working?

Sandra curently reports over 66 mhz on agp and that means the lock IS NOT working. some ppl were insisting not to trust the numbers on sandra because it reports the number divided from FSB meaning it ignores the lock in effect and just what the number would be if the FSB was increased without a lock.

so i am looking if there is any way to check the AGP PCI bus frequencies other than using those programs..
