    I'm building another pc for a friend.
    The pc has my old Radeon SDR in it. While doing some overclocking I noticed that the AGP divider in bios was set to 1/1
    The thing is, with FSB @112MHz the AGP was also running at the same frequency.
    I could not believe it so I got hold of sisoft sandra and surely it was 112MHz.

    Not happy I left the machine running the whole night looping 3Dmark (I had the fire dept. phone number handy, just in case) and the morning after it was still running.
    Now that is an amazing tolerance, from the original speed of 66Mhz to 112!
    I invented AGP 3X mode! :D

    I ran 133 fsb on my old bx board and set agp to 1/1 and it worked fine with my radeon 32 ddr.

    Wow, thats AGP 4x on a BX board!!

    You gotta love those BX chipsets!
    Many people managed to fit P3 Tualatin on it and clock it up to 1600MHz!!

    ...must find way to fit P4 on it... ;)

    I didn't run it at 133 mhz for long...thought it would fry my video card.

    Yeah ATI (& Matrox) cards have always been famous for high AGP overclocks (especially back in the BX days before the 1/2 AGP divider). I used to run my Rage Fury at 112mhz AGP (112mhz bus + 1/1 divider) years ago. GF3s and GF4s seem to be able to handle over 100mhz without tearing at AGP 4x (people drop to 2x over 105mhz or so).
