What does increasing the frequency of a computers main bus [the bus that connects the CPU to the chipset] imply about the voltage ["information"] traveling on a bus? (what IS the frequency of a bus effectively measuring, data units per second?) The way i see it (please correct me if i'm wrong, which i will presume i am), increasing the number of 'ups and downs' in any given second will result in more voltage going through the bus (which means more will be denoted a logical 0 or 1, so effectively more data is passing through the bus). If it was 2 cycles per second, and was increased to 4 per second, would that not imply that more voltage passes through the bus? And if this is implied ( that more voltage passes through the bus at any given second) how can this be, without violation Ohms law...? How can a change in frequency change the amount of data per second that can be processed in any given second (I'm talking about overclocking, increasing a processor from 3.6->4.0ghz for example)? How can this be explained by physics without breaking fundamental laws (i presume this is because frequency has a more complex nature than the basics of Ohms law).
