most probably u have a hdd that wudnt want to be run off spec. i dont know how to fix ur prob coz i dont know much about ur board. if it has a way going back to default pci speed, with ur cpu and ram at oc, u might as well try it. in a few weeks ill be getting a board like urs, so by then u might have fixed ur problem :D
