I just recently moved from IDE to a WD Raptor 74g SATA drive. Well the drive works great but my O/C went to hell.
As you can see in my sig I was running that setup on my IDE. 8hrs prime stable @ 1.63V. 2-3 hours stable at 1.6v and 45mins - 1 hour at 1.57.
All I changed was my HDD. Now I cannot even pass SuperPi1m at 1.57v 10x290. Prime fails at 0 mins.
At 10x290 1.63v (8hrs prime before) it fails in 5 minutes.
Im running the SATA on 3&4 at the moment. I have had it on EVERY port Nvidia and Sil3114.
Nothing makes a difference.
I adjusted my HTT multi all the way to 2x. No help still fails.
It seems the CPU wants more voltage then before to get stable with SATA. Which makes no sense.
I now have to give it 1.63v at 10x290 to get it to pass superpi 1M !! It was 8 hrs prime before ..WTF !?! lol
Im using Nforce 6.53 (Windows IDE) and 618-1 Bios.
Any help is appreciated.
