    O/clocking agp bus?

    OK, heres the deal:
    I'm running an Abit bp6 with 2 500 celerons(I know I should have bought 366's but its too late now!!) at 562(75x7.5) which means I have two options with the agp - 50mhz or 75mhz. At the moment its at 50, and is obviously fine, but will 75mhz cause damage?? Is it just a heat issue, or are there other implications to bear in mind.
    The card I'm using is a 3D labs VX1 if its of any relevance....

    As long as youre not overclocking the card, I highly doubt you will have trouble at 75mhz. As an added precaution, you can add extra cooling (add a slot fan if it already has a fan/hs, or add a fan blowing across the card). Most AGP cards released in the last two years have been able to take 75mhz.

    I agree. AGP can usually handle 75MHz without a lot of trouble. You only really see complications when you move up into the 83MHz range.
