is going to be 88 MHz because the lowest value is 2/3 of the FSB, regardless of the PCI divider. The MSI 6163 uses the BX chipset which is different from the VI chipsets that derive the AGP speed from the PCI clock.

On the other hand, there is nothing really to worry about, as long as the memory can take the higher bus speed. One caveat with that board is that the RAS-To-CAS delay is fixed at 2 cycles, even if you change it in the BIOS to 3, the new setting won't execute. This could cause errors, especially with the Kingston DIMMs but if you get random lockups, you can always lower the bus speed again. You won't damage the CPU but you may corrupt the Windows registry
