Depends, but data corruption may be likely. I don't think it will physically damage the drive though.

I used to run at 41.5Mhz PCI fine (166Mhz FSB).

i second to what fizz3 said. It depends totally on your hdd. for my current setup, 42 is da limit before corruption occures, however, i got a cuda that can run as high as 44, with some raid card. the point is, it depends on ur hdd.

Just step down to normal or 36 Mhz bus , its not worth it kill your system parts for nothing .
