Hi I figured that this post should go under this forum because its primarily a storage problem. I have a newly installed 200GB SATA Maxtor drive. When it was first installed in my computer, my CPU was overclocked roughly 18% from 2.66Ghz to 3.14Ghz. It has been this way for a while and I have had no stability or heat issues. When overclocked, the BIOS gives random results for the SATA drive. Sometimes it even hangs at POST. After this, I tried to disable the overclocking and it worked fine. This SATA drive is NOT my OS drive, but is merely used for storage. My main drive is an 80GB PATA. My question is: Why would overclocking have any effect on how the SATA drive runs?
