Yes, it may cause silent data corruption.

I leave it at 100. The only time I had to put it on 101-105 was when my gigabyte board was making my PCIe slot do x8 instead of x16. So I jumped it to 105 and it made it x16 again.

It may affect a little increase of temperatures (monitor or video card) and it doesn't increase the performance at all, I would leave it to 100.

data corruption ussally happens at 120. some older chip set it can help an overclock. and a higher pci e bux speed was proven to give 9600gts a boost in performance

I've seen data corruption occur at PCI-E speeds as low as 105MHz, on an ICH9R with RAID in operation.

I have an Asus board that will not run any OC stable unless you set the PCI-e to 110mhz. I hate that board.
