Hi All,

I was just researching the net on AGP/PCI dividers for my 8k7a board, and it seems that there is a 1/5 divider available on this board. I can't find it though, does anyone know here I can set it?

I've got the latest stable BIOS (May 29 2002) Epox has on their site. (not the beta... though the beta doesn't mention it has the divider functionality)

Thanks in advance,

Patrick

Argh,

This use to be a very persued topic around 14 months ago.
The outcome was that the divider chip does support pci 1/5 dividers, but the northbridge (AMD761) does not support this feature. So your just getting 1/4.

This board is amazing and attains 200mhz+ fsb's by its solid engineering and well picked components.

So in other words, you will get high fsb's but you will need to have good quality pci devices that can take such high frequencies.
(I wanna warn you to use a HDD that has no valuble data on it, because if you arent careful you will corrupt sectors running it 180mhz+)
