    Hey folks...

    Back to the Over Clocking subject yet one more time. By now

    We know that I am running the Intel D845BG MoBo with an Intel

    Express Bios. I recently flashed the Bios to Intel Version

    PT84510A.86A.0021.P03 and feature wise there are no new

    Options in the Bios Menus.

    I know that Intel takes the position of Anti-Over Clocking in lieu of

    Offering a more “stable” platform. I am a car nut and the whole over

    Clock is like Nitrous Oxide to me. It’s available and it’s cheap (or in

    This case free) and it’s driving me nuts not being able to do it.

    I cannot even see my Bus Speed or AGP Multiplier in the Bios. Half of

    The advanced features seem to be grayed out. I wonder what would be

    Required for me to make these options available if they are available at

    All……….

    Any ideas?

    All I can tell you is that from my experiences with Intel motherboards in the past, there was no way to get them overclocked without the use of an outside device (if that option was available).

    Masood,
    I am comming to the same conclusion. I downloaded and printed
    the full 130 page documentation for the MoBo (at work on a
    Laser Printer of course!) and I read through it and to access
    the advanced bios functions you must switch the MoBo Bios
    Jumper into config mode. But no where in the documentation
    does it say this will display multipliers!
    Argh! [​IMG]

    Patrick,
    I had an ASUS in my last PC and it was a great MoBo.. Lasted
    me 7 years till the bios died (and even then it was just
    a matter of $20.00 for a new Award PNP chip) but it wasn't
    worth spending another $20.00 on IMHO (P5 Pentium 133Mhz)
    But still, even though Intel doesn't want you messing with
    Multipliers this is one hell of a QUALITY MoBo.. It has some
    very good features and rock solid stability (which is why
    it's the MoBo that Micron uses)
    Hey MoBo's are fairly cheap... I may just pick up a Soyo
    Dragon just to piss with [​IMG]
