The IDE BUS normally runs as 33mhz. A 100mhz system bus it cut by 3, an oldie 
66mhz system bus is cut by 2. That is how it works.  The question I have 
posted before is: I overclock my system to 115mhz which corresponds to an IDE 
speed of about 37 mhz. Is there an advantage (or disadvantage) of placing 
this override? Where is this done?
