Bizarre AGP effect...

Just wanted to post something very bizarre that I discovered about my ASUS
P4C800E-Dlx mainboard today.

I've got a 2.6Ghz Northwood P4 clocked at around 3.14Ghz. 1.5gig of memory
at 3:4 of the CPU bus speed (cheap memory) and a recently aquired BFG 6800GS
AGP video card.

I just went into my CMOS settings and changed the AGP clock rate from
"default" to 80Mhz. Upon reboot the onboard sound failed to work AND my
Outlook Express stopped showing message bodies. VERY bizarre. Once I set the
AGP clock down to 72Mhz all is normal again.

Very odd...

It seems your PCI clock rate is 1/2 the AGP rate. If you
have any PATA hard drives, now is a good time to scan them
because it can also corrupt data in addition to fouling up
other devices.

Why up the AGP speed? Most other things are a more
significant bottleneck than AGP clock rate.
