Overclocking p4 2.4B

  1. Hello,

    I have been overclocking now for a while but can't get my p4 2.4 higher than 2.7ghz when i set it to for ex 2.8 or even 2.75ghz
    it boots normally but when i for example try to load 3dmark 2k3, it loads for 3/4 and then gives a file error.

    file ^%#^@^.mb or something is corrupt.

    i have tried many things like lowering mem clock cause i thought it was my memory didnt help. havent tried highering mem timings but were on defaults when i first tried and one optimized settings when i tried again no differences. someone told me its a harddisk failure

    hmm was hoping one of u guys could help me out on this cause it doesnt get to hot even @ highest voltage (1.8) it doesnt get to hot. and yes its on asynchronous :))

    my harddisk is a maxtor 60gig 7200rpm 2mb cache
    mem : 512 ( mem timings 2 2 2 5 ) stable had them on 2 3 3 6 (spd) when ocing higher then 2.7

    video card went from 275 to 344 and 270 to 300 without artifacts

    Is the PCI bus speed locked or relative to FSB? If it increases with FSB, it might be too much for IDE controller and causes data corruption.
