OC'ing harming my hard drive???
Alright... I was overclocking my FSB... sending it to the very extent. Ive got watercooling on my CPU, so I was trying to squeeze every little bit I could. I wasnt even getting near 40c. The thing holding me back was my voltage I think. I didnt really mess around with that.
Well, one time I set everything down a bit, cause I saw all these glitches over the Win2k startup screen. After I set them down... right after the BIOS is done booting everything up, a black screen is there and it says at the top "NTLDR is missing. Push Ctrl Alt Del to restart" I was thinking, oh ****... my hard drive has failed.
I put the drive in a friends computer as slave. Win2k booted up on his master, and it automatically started checking my hard drive for consistency. It got done with all this ****, and repaired all these errors.
I get it back in my machine, and there is all these corrupted files. I had to reinstall windows. Now the drive is working fine. I am just wondering if that overclock effected my hard drive, or if this just somehow happened. I am pretty sure it had something to do with the overclock, but I just dont exactly know how.
