hard drives can usually take oc's farily well, although i never oc a system anymore without VERY good airflow by the harddrive, or just at least a seperate cooler on it.. just for safeties sake. if it doesnt take the high fsb speeds well, take it back, they have a nice 14 day return policy there, i would know, they pay my checks :) lol
I have the same HD as you, it will overclock pretty good, but my WD was able to overclock a lot better..

I have the 20 gig version of your hardrive and I am running at 10*160, not sure what my pci bus is right now but I am betting that it is pretty high, no hd corruption or anything.

Help!!!! i have a western digital 20 gig hd 7200 rpm. is in a firstname.lastname@example.org ghz fsb at 151 it runs stable at this but once i push the fsb up anymore it does a disk check on winxp startup and starts correcting files and repairing lost chains or something, but still boots xp. Once i get the fsb to 160 i get a file sys error and cant boot xp. i can post at 165 and temps r always below 32 deg c ona custom water cool setup.
Is this a HD problem that cant take the high fsb or wat? pls recommend fixes or best solution to the problem. keep in mind i want to push as high as i can go.

my celly wont go over 84mhz fsb, i swithed the hdd from a 4 to 40 gig. So, for me i dont think that its a hdd problem. It might be your chip maybe thats its limit. But there could be other resons but thats what i think.

:confused: hmmmm well the sitituation is that up to 151mhz it runs fine not problems wats so ever.
152-160 mhz when i boot win xp i does a disk check and starts correcting file chains. but still boots.
160+ i can post and when it trys to boot xp it does the disk check again but this time fails to boot and gives and file sys error on a blue screen. once this happens even when i reset bois i cant boot due to corrupted sys files.
Anyone out there having this problem??
could it be ide cables or high fsb incompatibility with the western digital hd??

well with me its when i put the fsb from 84 to 85 it doesnt boot at all. So i dont know what your problem is.
