No shit, it wasn't meant to limit overclocking but most people's SATA drives become unstable once the FSB gets so high, including me. I'm pretty sure that when i raised the fsb and my 80gb SATA drive had corrupt partitions that SATA crapped out at that speed.

The sata bus refers to from the drive to the board, once it gets past the controller it is considered part of the FSB. Have fun OC'ing your vid card i got like 10fps more from OC'ing. Make sure it doesnt heat up like the dickens though.

You can still overclock without changing the FSB, by adjusting the multiplier, if you want a good performance increase though you'll want to up the FSB.

All is fair in love and war.
