Default Overclock AGP bus?

Would overclocking my agp bus increase performance noticable? would it be unstable or hurt my motherboard?

don't OC the AGP bus speed! That might damage your mobo and/or video card!!! not to mention it does no good for performance.
You want to OC the video RAM or the GPU on the video card itself!
Download a free OC util like RadLinker or others, and use that!

lol yes it is good you asked. Never increase the PCI or AGP Bus as it'll lead to nothing but troubles and possibly fried components
