Don't touch it. The highest I'll put mine is 102. It sometimes makes overclocks more stable to change it a little bit, but if you increase it a lot it'll fry your PCI bus and possibly yourPCI/PCIe cards. 110 is pretty high for a PCI clock. I've heard of some people going as high as 123, but I've also heard of people blowing their motherboards and frying their GPUs at 101...

It doesn't really do anything performance-wise most of the time.

Do not touch. Period. It offers no performance gain at all. It controls your southbridge frequency, and if you go over ~105-115MHz it starts frying your hard drives.

I don't know why manufacturers even let you change it.

Leave it at 100MHz.
