    Ok so I just installed the SATA adapter that came with my motherboard on my hard drive today and when I went to start up, it blue screened and restarted as it was loading windows. I go into bios and change the FSB and multiplier back to default and now it works. How can installing the SATA adapter on my HD effect my oc?

    All I can think of is make sure AGP/PCI are locked to 66/33mhz. I run my system off a Raptor and I obviously don't have any overclocking problems.

    PCI runs at half that so if you have the AGP locked at 66 the PCI is at 33 like it should be.

    Have you tried restoring default settings and trying to overclock again? Mine can be picky sometimes and won't boot one day even though those are the settings I use every day.
