Exclamation Nubius HELP

I was reading one of your comments and you said that you can fry a hdd by ocing your cpu. How does that work? Am i at any risk of doing that when i take my chip to 2.6ghz (260fsb)?

thnx

Yeah that only happens if you raise your FSB and you don't have your AGP:PCI locked at 66:33Mhz

Couldn't tell you how often it happens and chances are you'd fry something like the graphics card first, but yeah I supposed if you didn't have an AGP port like on an old motherboard the chances of the HD would be more at risk.
