  1. okay i formated my hard driuve, loaded windows, service pack 2 blah blah blah, after everything was done i decided to start my overclocking. i got the fsb up to 255 and kept the multiplier at 10, set the hypertransport to 4x and uped the voltage on the ram to 2.6, chipset to 1.3 and the cpu to 1.425

    everything worked fine until i restarted my machine, this was after i got into windows and made sure everything worked, i got a message saying that ntldr is missing. i know thats a critical file, so i reset the bios to the optimized default cause i thought the overclock caused the screw up. i reformated, loaded windows blah blah blah, and after the same period of time i got the same error, it said ntldr is missing, press control alt delete to restart. is there something in windows that is causing this?

    i checked out dfi street and they said to try memtest, so i did. so far its gone through 3 passes and no errors so far.
