Bus speed

I built my rig about 3 years ago. Athlon xp2000, 40g hd, 128 + 256
sdram pc133, XP Pro, and ECS K7S5A motherboard. I ran the test at the
Crucial.com , and it said my bus clock is 66 MHz. Belarc Advisor
reports the same result.

In the bios I have the settings
CPU Speed 133/133MHz
CPU Frequency 133MHz
DRAM Frequency 133MHz

Is this a proper bus speed? I thought it was supposed to be much higher.

Don't worry. I have that same board. It's just a reporting error.

Isn't that the AGP bus? PCI and AGP buses run at different speeds to the
RAM and CPU bus. That's why overclocking on boards that don't have an
AGP/PCI lock setting in the BIOS is often less successful than with
boards that have this setting: the bus speeds on all the buses go up,
and AGP/PCI buses don't handle it as well as RAM/CPU.

I'm going to die rather sooner than I'd like. I tried to protect my
neighbours from crime, and became the victim of it. Complications in
hospital following this resulted in a serious illness. I now need a bone
marrow transplant. Many people around the world are waiting for a marrow
transplant, too. Please volunteer to be a marrow donor:

Remember, that mobo has a tendency to lose its cmos settings--a bug that
never was definitely corrected. I regularly have to go into 2 & reset
bios. s
