Ok now it's my turn to seek advice, please be kind to
I have never overclocked a PCI-E bus before, but of course it's simple to do.
Is it worth overclocking it and does it help with gaming/bandwidth and Vantage scores?
And how high can I go or should I go with a single GPU platform?

Heard somewhere that you shouldn't go over 120MHz, true or false?

Thanks folks!!!

only needed when running a multi GPU environment to stabilize the flow.

I have to use 106 to get 3 GPU,s to run stable at decent overclocks.

It will not help single GPU your 285 GTX don't even use 8x little less 16x.

Tried it out at one point using 105-110mhz and saw no gains.

Heard it can lead to hdd corruption if done too high.

I could see it helping multi gpu's but it didnt help me any.
