The only way I can think of that OCing would effect your HDD in anyway is if it's cauing BSODs that happen to corrupt a file on the HDD. If you are getting BSODs from OCing then you probably need to bump the voltage up some.

You are close. I think what you are remembering is that when you overclock the PCI-E FREQUENCY, the hard drive can go corrupt. This is absolutely TRUE. If you go too high with PCI-E frequency, you can and will corrupt your OS (if using a SATA drive). That is why you usually leave this setting on AUTO or lock it at 100MHz.

As far as OCing the GPU core and RAM of your card and having it affect your HDD, I am going to say totally false.

Next question.

EDIT - HWI is probably correct in that your BSOD from unstable GPU clocks may have corrupted a file somewhere. Although the two still aren't linked. You are more likely to burn out the card than to corrupt your OS while fiddling with GPU clocks.

That's a good point. Didn't think about that since it's something I never touch.

Right, you should never need to unless you go for EXTREME OCs. In fact, your big benchers are almost all using IDE drives to prevent the OS from getting trashed. It doesn't effect the IDE bus.

Also, some budget boards need a tiny bump in PCI-E frequency to be able to OC the CPU at all.

These are the only two instances where you should ever need to touch that setting.
