I want to play around with ramping up a HP Pavilion WinXP P4 2.6 machine
with a typical limited BIOS but have done some searching for this OEM
board (Asus P4SD-LA) and found a 04' discussion in Alliance of
Overclocking Arts were they used CPUCool to get it done with decent
success but there was no mention of the PCI and AGP bus issues.
hopefully that means they are locked and nothing to note but I don't
want to take any chances with corrupting data if possible so then, what
monitoring program is out there that will give me a look at the PCI and
AGP bus speeds to see if they are changing right from the start as I
adjust the FSB or maybe something that can lock those buses as well?
Re: what program to monitor PCI and AGP bus changes
I looked into that already as that seems perfect, but it doesn't support
the clock generator (PLL) for my board. they have one that is close, ICS
type:952607, but my board's chip ends in 606 (as identified by CPUCool)
and not understanding the whole deal very well I'm not so sure I should
chance it. I hear enough to know bad things could happen if it all goes
wrong just for the sake of a little extra speed.
