You could overvolt the motor to increase the spindle speed...whether or not that will actually help performance is anyone's guess. Overclocking the PCI bus could also be interpreted as overclocking your hard since it lives off the PCI bus, but again, that just causes harm more than anything else
you can'd overclock simply because a hdd is manufactured to read at a set speed, apparently the fastest IDE speed's 133? i think, and if you exceed that speed , you'll corrupt all your data because you've made the floppies spin faster than the heads can read it at.
Well bare in mind that even a raport can only output data at a sustained rate of around 90MB/s, and my 7,200rpm ATA100 drive does about 60MB/s. The extra bus speeds are for burst ratings, which can be whatever. And just to clear it up, they're not called floppies, they're called platters because they're not floppy at all, they're made of aluminum
