you say seagate barracuda IV, I have one of them, but does it matter about the specs of the harddrive itself?

IE do ones that operate at 10krpm not overclock as good as ones that do 5400rpm?

My WD special edition is fine up to 169 (42mhz pci) without a problem. I dont know how much higher than that it might go.

I have found in the past that my WDs (not the new 8mb cache) were good untill the low 40s, after that they were done.
