    agp settings 2/3 ...

    I have a generic ( Pine Tech ) M/B and it supports 100Mhz fsb for up to PIII's but in the cmos it doesn't have the option of setting agp speed to 2/3 or 1/1. Does this mean if i try to o/c my cely 300 to 450 it will kill my agp card ?? if so how would a cpu which is designed to run 100Mhz fsb work on my board without this agp speed setting??

    Thanks in advance.

    Mobos generally auto detect whether you have a Celeron or a PII/PIII by reading the state of pin B21. So if you plug in a PII or PII it will automatically set the AGP divider at 2/3. There might be a jumper to select the divider to override pin B21 - it might be labeled as a 66/100 jumper. You need this to force the AGP divider to 2/3 for a Celeron since the mobo would normally set it at 1/1. If you don't have this capability you can tape pin B21 and fool the motherboard into thinking your Celeron is a PII or PIII. Here's a link to the procedure over at Tom's Hardware: www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/98q2/980514/ .

    i'm a little confused? i think i've seen the jumper setting you're talking about, but i can also change the fsb within cmos settings. so if i set the fsb to 100Mhz and leave the jumper on 66 it should be alright ?

    does that mean that all agp slots run at 66?

    Thanks again.

    This jumper doesn't change the FSB, it changes the AGP divider ratio. The 66 position will set the AGP divider at 1/1, so if you O/C your Celeron to 100 MHz the AGP clock will be 100 MHz. To O/C your Celeron to 100 MHz, you need to set the jumper to the 100 position to set the AGP divider to 2/3 and the AGP clock will be at 66 MHz. This is referred to as a b21 override capability. This is the way it works on my old Soyo SY-6BB motherboard.

    Hey, I was thinking about that yesterday when figuring about something to do about my cely333@puny375 system. Maybe my G200 doesn’t like 80+MHz so I was looking for a jumper like that on my Asus P2B but couldn't find one.
    Does that mean I must do the b21 override thing?
