    i have read from a guide that i should lock my PCI at 33mhz and my PCIE at 100mhz

    y is this? and it ssays i will gain less performance.

    One final thing, do i leave it locked at these speed after i finsehd overclocking? or do i unlock it?

    You should have them locked at that speed all the time.

    The PCI, PCI-e etc. are all linked so increasing one too far can cause instability and things like data corruption and will also limit your overclock. Lock them and keep them locked.

    ^^ what he said, it will oc the pci bus and leads to instability so should always be locked.

    Should be able to set them to certain speeds seperately. If not then put it back to default FSB and lock them. Then start clocking again.
