MSI locks PCI?

Ive ordered the MSI nforce2 board, the L version, not the IGP version "G". I understand the board I ordered will lock the agp, but does not lock the pci? Can someone unfortunately verify this? Any bios fix for this?

And, assuming Im unfortunately right, is there a way to play it safe? LIke step the FSB up by 33? So instead of 133 can I go to 166 without harming the pci?

  1. The motherboard does NOT lock the PCI, at least not yet. Running at 166 should be no problen sence that is what mine runs at defualt. (2700XP @333 FSB) I have not tried to overclock... yet.

  2. 166 should be fine for most cards.
