Change the SATA controller to IDE mode, the FM sockets have always had a "bug" that prevented overclocking beyond ~105 MHz bclk with the SATA controller in AHCI mode.
AMD has probably reused the controller setup from the FM sockets on AM1 resulting in the same "bug".
Somehow i ALWAYS use IDE mode in SATA...guess this is one more reason to continue to do so
BTW, i know that some MoBos had problems in the past with more than 105-107MHz base clock and Sub-D VGA....do you know if that setting SATa to IDE indirectly solves also that problem, or , if using VGA connector continues to limit to 105-107MHz base clock ?
the link does not work, also is there any way to pin mod it or something?
I am very far away from being an engineer, but I'm pretty sure there is no way to pin mod an AM1 APU because it happens to be a SOC.
Therefore, the northbridge is located on the APU itself as is the PLL. The PLL, or phase locked loop, is the chip responsible for producing the FSB frequency (often 100.00MHz) that drives all components of the motherboard.
So, because the cpu doesn't need to use the socket to communicate to the PLL, I'd say it is impossible to change the FSB using pin mod.
