Thumbs up nforce2 and PCI bus speeds answered.

I went over this morning to the [H] front page and found this little snippet that might ease some minds about fsb overclocking and PCI bus speeds with the nforce2.
This is a cut-n-paste from news posted by Kyle at his site:

Quote:
Short Bus to OC Land:

We have seen it batted round and round about the nForce2 PCI bus rising or changing as the FSB is overclocked. To our understanding, the PCI bus is fully independent of the FSB and the AGP bus, but today we had the opportunity to ask NVIDIA directly and this was their reply.

"The PCI clock is always nominal on MCP2. The AGP clock may be separately overclocked or left at nominal speed as desired." --Scott Baker, nForce product manager at NVIDIA

So for the record, do what you want with the FSB, the AGP and the PCI, as they are three separate entities.
That sounds like real good news for all the nforce2 board owners out there. Now if only Via would learn how to do something like that.

Yes, but some of the mobo manufacturers said that their PCI bus is not locked... ? I don't remember exactly wich ones, but you must know.
