Anyone know of a way to OC your PCI-E bus speed with software?

As the title says, anyone know how to do this, using software instead of bios? I don't have this option in my BIOS, and I read a guide here:
That suggests to do so.

Really? Wonder why they said this on that article....did you check it out? I think they only mean by a few mHzs, but I wasn't gonna try it until WAY later anyway..I'm not one to jump into things that I'm unfamiliar with
i. e. I'm WAY cautious!

Well, I'm pretty sure upping the speeds of anything pci can damage your hardware.
Yea its true it will i know =P I fried my very first PCI-E vid card only cranking 10mhz higher then default...DONT DO IT!!!! lol about crapped myself doing that to a $170 vid card...thx god for neweggs RMA lol
lol didn't know if affected it that much where you can fry a card... Guess I shouldn't of tried 115 with my new 8800GTX... Oh well...
well it could of been B/c i have a cheap MB or something...or i just got a bad vid card...it just didnt work when i changed it...and even after it restarted
I also heard good things about raising the PCI-E bus speeds. Mine's at 107MHz and I'm able to get 5-10 MHz more out of the core.

Oh, you can use nTune or ClockGen for it.


Or SysTool (VERY handy tool anyway)
yea Ntune is wat i used...I bet my vid card was weak lol
I ran my 6800GS at 110mhz for a few months and nothing has gone bad. But as other people have had problems going even a few up from default, stay away from overclocking it.
