Exclamation 8K3A bios mod

Some claim that FSB dividers(1/4, 1/5, etc.) are implemented and controlled by the BIOS.
If this is true, why doesn't someone mod a bios for the 8K3A with a 1/6th divider?
I would if I knew the first thing about modding a BIOS!

and why doesn't someone cure aids, and cancer. Maybe even reverse the effects of global warming. :/

Anyway, I suggest this thread be closed and the usual disclaimer about dividers be issued.

Does KT333 support 1/6 diviver?
If i remember right..it doesnt.
So you have to buy KT400...actually its strange that VIA didnt set 1/6 diviver to KT333,because even Ali Magik rev C1 haves it.

EDIT: or you have to make turboPLL to it.

Cool

no 1/6, no 1/6.

not even the kt400 has it, even though the PLL has the capability.

Iwill=1/6, although with an SIS chipset.

next revision MAY have it, the 400a.

NForce is here, limited to 200 FSB from what i have been able to gleen from the reviews, but the 1/6 divider. peformance increase over the VIA is only about 5%, hardly worth the investment right now, unless you want bleeding freakin' cr.p first revs.

So, we wait, as usual.

There is no 1/6 divider because there is none available in the chipset. No amount of BIOS modification will change this FACT. There are only a limited number of things a BIOS can do, and activating non-existent dividers is not one of them. This is not a BIOS issue, it is a chipset issue. It's like trying to make a car fly. No amount of engine tweaking is going to make it sprout wings.
