    if your going to be ignorant I will not join any discussions you post
    look it up
    if you have a 125mb video card it will use 125mb from the memory sticks
    if Op is using some over clocking software it may have affected bios
    and since non of you genious's no why the bios changed ????????
    I'm done have fun

    Are you talking about AGP aperture? You need to read more about it if you are, so we can make more sense of your vaguely written posts. If you are talking about integrated video.. sure.. But no one here is talking about integrated video.

    Nobody here is being ignorant. You are confidently citing technologies totally unrelated to this thread and suggesting impossible solutions ("try reset the software on video card see if it changes the bios readings").

    You're right, I don't know why the BIOS have changed, or why they're displaying the improper external FSB frequency. However, I know it's got absolutely nothing to do with "resetting software on the video card", nor has it got anything to do with the video card borrow memory from the RAM.

    sorry about those benine posts i had a friend over. we were drinking and he was being an ****. anyways im not using the onboard video, im using an 8600gt pci-e 16x , and i have no clue why the fsb has changed itself. i hope its not going to be something that will damage my system thats all. i posted in part to see if anyone has ever had this happen. and so they can tell me if i should be worried. also i thought people might find this bizarre situation interesting!

    As long as it doesn't continue to increase "itself" it shouldn't damage anything. I would honestly leave it how it is, it's a successful overclock if you've noticed gains in your frame rates.

    If you want to set it to the default (I understand it says that it's at 133MHz in the BIOS but it's obviously not), try clearing the CMOS and seeing how it effects your FSB as I suggested.

    You may want to try reversing/disabling any overclocking you've done on the VPU to see if it played a role in all of this. I'd suspect that more than your motherboard spontaneously deciding to overclock your external FSB by 33MHz :).

    Somehow I doubt it. Besides, it wouldn't of charged you anything if you forced it to run at a higher FSB frequency anyway :).

    Enjoy the overclock, and please do report any further complications.
