LOL noob. Overclocking changes the speed of the whole system bus. The bus includes communication between everything. Most all motherboards have AGP/PCI locks so the speed there stays the same but i dont think there are any for SATA. SATA isnt very tolerant of speed changes.

All is fair in love and war.
