JLMS XJHD166S---- Died cuz of OC'ing??

Postby jeeka on Mon Feb 23, 2004 1:58 am

Like most of you out there I have been overclocking my CPU. Most of the time I lock the AGP and PCI Frequencies to there defaults in the BIOS. But not all the time. Could it be that my drive died because of the times i did OC the AGP/PCI Clocks to 72/36???? Maybe the electronics don't like to be out of range?

You guys tell me.

Asus P4T533, 3.06@3.52, stock vCore, Air, 4x enabled......

Possible?

What drive did you end up replacing it with? I need a good one capable of ripping at 16X and reading my 8X DVD+-R's QUICKLY and reliably...


I heard the newest Toshibas and Plextors are good (or at least their rebadged ones.)

well touching your FSB or any other part in your computer, shouldn't have anything to do with your dvd-rom

unless your mobo has the ability to lock the PCI and AGP buses.
