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?
