    alright im not sure how to lock the agp/pci frequencies on my board, but im thinking it has something to do with ...some...menu titled something along the lines of...i dont remember it said something about chips and frequencies and the options were asynchronous and synchronous and i dont know which one locks the frequencies of agp/pci. also i dont know anything about memory ratios. completely nothing. so if anyone could explain that to me it'd be greatly appreciated cause i think my memory, and locking those frequencies is the onlything holding me back in my overclockingness:flames:

    Haven't heard of your board. I've only ever seen the P4C800 and P4P800.

    Anyway there should be an option for CPU/AGP/PCI frequency in the first page. I'll give you a bunch of ratios (7:2:1, 9:2:1, etc) and "fixed" at the bottom of the list.

    People have hit 300FSB on that board and chip combo. There IS a way to lock the AGP/PCI. that Bios is apparently a pain to decipher. Just got to find it:)

    It's the SiS chipset, and I don't know which BIOS it uses.

    Mine (American Megatrends) just plain says "AGP/PCI Frequency". The AWARD BIOS is the one Sov explained. It is in the chipset settings though.

    Are you positive you can do that on that chipset? I am not sure, don't have any experience with them. If its like Via, you can't.

    Whoops What's wrong with me lately... I must be losing it. P4S is a Sis Chipset and not the Springdale chipset (your right sov) I was thinking above (P4P800) Don't know anything specific about that Mobo. Sis in general though usually or never has AGP/PCI lockable option.:(

    go there...go down to overclocking features. theres a way to do it, i just cant figure out how. now how would i use memory ratios to help me overclock more?

    hey soulburner, is there a chance my board came with the agp/pci locked like...default? it says its a feature under the overclocking features and i cant find it in the bios. at least theres nothing that says it like right out and blatently. im probably overlooking it, but is there a chance its default? AND WILL SOMEONE TELL ME ABOUT MEMORY RATIOS????

    Yeah it does say it has it....

    ASUS JumperFree
    ASUS C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
    CPU, Memory, and AGP voltage adjustable
    SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) from 100MHz up to 266MHz at 1MHz increment
    Adjustable FSB/DDR ratio, Fixed AGP/PCI frequencies

    Looks like its a lot better than the Via chipset...its gonna be in the advanced chipset features, mine is right by the FSB adjustment. Your BIOS may have a different layout but it should be called AGP/PCI Frequency or have a ratio like 6:2:1 or something, with the option for "Fixed".

    i went through and looked at the options under every heading i could find and nothing had the option of fixed or any ratios or anything like that. soulburner i just wanna thank you for that wonderful picture youve got of that running chick. but back to the subject. i really dont want to call asus and talk to them because tech support people are trash.
