Unhappy PCI Multiplier Help!

How Do you find out what PCI Multiplier your board set/running at: 1/2@66.5

Also AGP Multiplier your board set/running at:

I need to find out because My FSB x Multiplier was: 133 x 21

I have altered the FSB x Multiplier to: 138 x 21

I have noticed that my Memory Frequency as jumped from 133Mhz set at 2 3 3 6.

to 138Mhz set at 2 3 3 6.

Do i need to change the memory frequency back to 133mhz and if so, how do you do it.


P.s i am new to this overclocking game so all hints and tips would be very useful.

In all fairness I wouldnot overclock with the P4MKI mainboard as it is not designed for that kind of purpose in the slightest.

For overclocking I would recommend a board based on Intel Chipset such as the 4PLAI or similar - I would not overclock P4 on VIA chipset unless making distinct moves from 400 to 533 or 800MHz bus. The reason for this is that you will run the bus's out of specification annd possibly cause hard disk corruption or peripheral damage.

Also - Sisoft Sandra is unfortunatley not very good diagnostics software for chipsets - it makes assumptions rather than measurements.
If you need EPoX BIOS eeproms in the UK, goto
