    Exclamation Cant find AGP/PCI lock

    I have a motherboard based on VIA Apollo Pro 133T chipset, but I cant find the ACG/PCI lock/divider in bios and manual.

    I want to overclock my Celeron 1300 Mhz but I need to find the lock/dividers, I'm new to overclocking

    Isn't that an older chipset or am I thinking of something else? If so, then you probably won't find a PCI/AGP lock as it wasn't available yet.

    I dont think its a brand name comuter, I looked in my manual and saw:

    *System BIOS
    Provides licensed Award BIOS V6.0 PG on 2MB Flash EEPROM and supports Green PC, Desktop Management Interface (DMI).

    That mainboard's chipset does not support locking of the AGP/PCI buses so overclocking can only be done by the FSB but that will be limited by those 2 buses.

    Yup, it's too old.

    nForce 2/3/4, Via K8T800 PRO, Intel i865/875/915/925 do support AGP locks. I forget if any SiS or ALi/ULi chips do. I believe the upcoming Radeon Xpress 200/200P will by how well this chipset may overclock (290+ FSB!)
