I am running a 2400+ unlocked @ about 2.3 and 187?, anyway its somewhere around there. I could go higher but my AGP/PCI bus goes way to high and my video card flips out. Im running an Abit AT7-Max, which rocks for an overclocker, but the bios only has a 5:2:1 divider, so i cant clock it any higher. If I up the multiplier I cant get my FSB up as high,and I'm shooting for 400. Does anybody know what I can do about this? Is there a bios update that could give me a better divider? Or a way to lock my AGP/PCI Bus?? Maybe even a way to get more AGP speed tolerance from my radeon 9700? Im willing to even mod my mobo if there is a way, I need 2.4 @ 400!!!

See if there is fixed AGP/PCI frequence options in your BIOS, that can help.

By the way, can you show some bench such as PCmark2002? I'd like to see how AMD's 2.3GHZ scored.

Also, i can hit about 2.45 before i go unstable, but not all chips can do that, I had to go through about 3 chips to get a good one, but luckily i work at Fry's so I got to hand pick them. Hehehehehe

Come on now guys, i know my system rocks, *ahem* (cough of modesty) but i need help making it go faster, is there a way to get a better divider without getting anew board?
