How do WD HDDs handle OCing?
What, in your experience, would be "cutting it close" when OCing your computer with a WD HDD in it? What would the FSB be where the hdd might get unstable? I've heard some stories about going too high with a WD. Any suggestions/advice?

Mine died... Nuff said.Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?
Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

yeah, they are uptight
yeah, my WD HD seems to be a bit finicky, and it doesn't respond well to almost any tweaking. If it starts locking up on you, then you know. And trust me, it will just stop. It's almost funny. All of a sudden, freeeze! Reboot time.

Ummmmm, get a Maxtor. I am so glad I didn't grab that WD.

I've already got the WD and I'm not regretting it...yet. Reading threads for so long, some people say Maxtor handles OCing better, others say WD does. I don't know.

My 40GB 7200 ATA100 WD died after about 3 months of use. I typically ran the FSB between 145-152. Have a Maxtor now, but haven't set itup yet b/c my motherboard is fired (stupid mistake on my part, don't ask). My new one should come tomorrow, and then I can see how well the Maxtor does.
