Any benefit in o/cing the PCIe bus speed?
 
I know nVidia that nVidia oc/ing software supports PCIe bus overclocking. My motherboard supports PCIe overclocking from 100mhz to 200mhz.

Is there any hard done or benefit for overclocking the bus? I tried google and there was no real specific info on this.

I'm trying to squeeze every once of performance out of my pc.;)

not really, your card can't use the bandwidtth available anyway.

Yeah one card wouldn't scracth the PCIe bandwidth.

I know both SLI and CrossFire both heavyly saturate the PCI express bus dramatically, even on the new nForce4 Amd/Intel x16 chipsets . Does o/cing the bus even rememdy that problem? Can someone with a SLI or CF setup do a benchmark please? Something mainly gpu-limted like 3dMark 03, 05, or 06?

Does o/cing the PCIe damage the card?

I know o/cing an AGP bus above 66mhz does eventually damage the card.

meh so, does ocking the PCIe bus = better crossfire performance? Whats the default speed of PCIe and how do you calculate bandwidth? Anyone? I tried searching in google but got pissed of after 15 minutes of BS
