anyone have problems running 70MHz on the AGP bus? i've read a couple of posts saying ati cards are more sensitive to higher agp freqs...if so, i'm gonna keep my fsb where it is and up the multi on my kt600 boards...thanks all...

Most via boards have dividers that kick in at certain frequencies... On my previous gigabyte kt400 board, the highest divider was 1/5, so the max fsb that i can run and kick agp/pci at stock 66/33 was 166FSB.

On the kt600 boards, you should have a 1/6 dividers, so 200 FSB should be your high safe point.

yes, but at 210fsb, that puts me at 70MHz...just curious to see if what i've read about ati cards being finicky about being run higher than spec is the rule and not the exception...if it is, then i'll stay at 200 or 205....
