Question Most aggressive BIOS for 8K3A+?

My new Radeon card can't handle the high AGP clock rates my Ti4600 could, so I have to run at a lower FSB speed (<190Mhz instead of 200Mhz before).

This means that my Corsair PC3200 CL2 is not being pushed as much, so I wanted to know if there is a more aggressive bios than the 2815 in order to combat the effect of the lower FSB?

only 2312, and the 28xx series has Fast command decode enabled over 166mhz. You can try 2312, but I thing the official 2815 is your best bet.

Well as i'm using the 2815 at the moment, there's not much i can do. Does anyone know how to use wpcredit to further optimise this bios? My corsair is being given an easy ride

Hopefully, the upcoming bios that adds Barton support shall give us CPU Fast Decode as well...

No, but it's an MSI card and overclocks quite well.
However, I no longer have it, and as my Radeon can't handle 200Mhz FSB, I'm having to investigate other ways of improving memory bandwidth!
