Anyone tried bumping up the AGP bus a tad?
Just wondering what your expierences was with overclocking the AGP bus by just a couple MHz... For the longest time I was running my AGP bus at 68 just to give me that slight "edge," or so I thought. All the while, never really doing any before/after benchmarks. I figured, it HAS to be faster if its clocked higher right? Well anyway, I reciently decided to take it back to defualt (66 MHz) and to my surprise, I got BETTER performance. Nothing too crazy, an increase of about 250 points in 3dmark 01 and 30 points in 03.
I tried the same thing with my buddies comptuer which is very similar (9800Pro/nForce2) my board is Epox and his is MSI and got the same result. Got better performance at 66MHz than at anything higher than that.
