Intel Set to Enable Overclocking of Solid-State Drives
It is possible to overclock nearly everything these days. Microprocessors, graphics cards, memory; even game consoles and smartphones can be overclocked. As it appears, it is also possible to overclock solid-state drives (SSDs). In fact, Intel Corp. plans to demonstrate how to boost performance of SSDs yourself at the upcoming Intel Developer Forum next month.
During a session (AIOS001) dedicated to overclocking of unlocked Intel Core processors for high-performance gaming and content creation, Intel will reveal peculiarities of boosting performance of the new Core i7-4000-series “Ivy Bridge-E” microprocessors on Intel X79 platforms as well as talk about overclocking in general. Among other things, Intel plans to carry out first public demonstration of overclocking Intel SSDs.
Overclocking of solid-state drives may sound odd, yet it is something that can absolutely be done. For example, clock-rate of SSD controllers can be increased, data rates of NAND flash memory can also be boosted. The main thing that needs to be ensured is that data integrity is maintained in overclocked condition of a storage device.

if there's one area you want absolute data integrity it would be storage. An OC'ed GPU can produce artifacts on the screen.. OK. OC'ed CPU can cause OS to crash, OC'ed memory can BSOD you quick and dirty.
Overclocking storage can screw up your install real quick, even destroy these "once dead, hard to recover anything from them" SSDs.
this is definitely an area I would rather prefer stability above speed.
