PCI-E bus overclocking
Will overclocking my PCI-E 16x bus help my over-the-hill X850xt PE ?
How high can I overclock my PCI-E safely?
Can overclocking the PCI-E hurt systems stability?
My chipset is NF4 intel edition.
thanks! thanks! thanks!

From what I know, overclocking the PCIe bus does pretty much nothing because it is not remotely a bandwidth bottleneck. It may help marginally if you play games at very low resolutions, otherwise the advantage goes away as you increase the resolution.
I say this because nVidia debuted "LinkBoost" for the nF5 chipset, which auto-overclocks the PCIe bus by 25%. Even with SLI configs it didn't improve anything by more than 2 FPS at best from the numbers I've seen. Such as here: http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Ha...1XEM2AA/6.html
