Simple Question, in my BIOS everytime I enter the frequency screen of my computer it tells me that serial ATA is very sesitive to bus overclock is this true?

I have never heard any horror stories yet, but Im sure something can happen.
Is it likely, probably not.
Also, when I do remember hearing about this I dont think it was anything about harware failure, but maybe lower transfer speeds or something, Im not exactly clear.
Also, it didnt state exactly what type of sensitivity it was so I would say it would be just fine.

If your SATA controllers are piped through the PCI bus and you don't have PCI/AGP locks, then yes it will be sensitive.

I'm betting nothing will happen to the hard drive. The Asus board has PCI/AGP locks (as does every current motherboard) and so a FSB overclock will only do just that. Also, if the hard drive is connected to the nForce4's controller, and not a third party one, then nothing will happen to it.

Try the settings that are available in your BIOS, or refer to the manual. If we're talking about the A8N, then there should be a setting for locked or something similar, unless the board doesn't have locks which then means I'm mistaken. Locking your AGP bus might be the way to lock both.

That's probably why your SATA drive malfunctions on you. If this happens again, try using the SATA port that's directly connected to the nForce4 chipset.

for his we actualy are talking a A8N-SLI-Deluxe :D how'd you know?
i don't think i can lock my pci this could be why my damn hard drive gets f***ed up when i overclock over about 220 MHz up from 200.
if anyone knows a way to lock the fsb on an MSI-NEO2-f you know who to tell.

Try smaller bumps.
