Well I guess the hd im using now craps out like crazy with anything over 166 FSB. Does anyone know a good and stable hard drive that is decently fast and will survive fsb speed over 166 ( Im hoping to hit 180 FSB but if I can sustain speeds around 175 I will be happy)

I really do not want to unlock this cpu, knowing me I will mess the cpu up :(

If I cant get a good hd I might as well quit overclocking cause I cant unlock my cpu if thats what it comes down to.

Your not gona get much more than 166 without a mobo with a 1/5 divider. What you need is a new mobo, not a new harddrive. No way your PCI card will let you go to 180 without a divider.

Yep, I have a 1/5 divider, gotta set something in bios to 5:2:1. It is on right now as a matter of fact, other wise it would be crapping out since im at 166 fsb.
