My brother has a Pentium 4 2.8 GHz and he overclocked it with a IDE HD. But whenever he puts a SATA drive in his computer he can't overclock anymore. So here's my question. Will I be able to overclock my XP 2500+ Barton with a SATA drive? I want to buy a SATA drive because they're faster than IDE drives.

sounds like your brother doesnt have native SATA.

If the SATA is stuck on a PCI through, it might be affected if the PCI in his mobo wasnt locked.

Dig through the BIOS and see if the PCI speed can be locked, along with AGP if possible. Does he have any other PCI items? sound card, TV Tuner, etc. that seem unstable?

As to your question about OCing with your AMD, just make sure that your mobo either has native SATA or locks on PCI speed

I think you should be fine.

My brother has native SATA. He also has a wireless card in a PCI bus. And he locked the PCI and AGP bus.

Sounds more like a flaky chipset driver to me. It's rare that these are even updated from what they come with. S/ATA on Intel boards are handled by the MCH (ICH6/7) and/or an onboard RAID controller. I'd inform him to get the latest driver from the vendor's site.

I can only assume that your luck could be the same as his even on an AMD rig if the drivers aren't updated from what they load at the factory. The boards I get are usually loaded with the 1.0 version of everything no matter how new or old they are, the drivers on the install disk are just old...even the BIOS in some cases.
