Smart Error Relation to Overclock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys recently today I cleaned the dust out of my computer, and reassembled it. When I booted it up, it gave me a smart error. I was thinking okay, the drive is bad. But this has happened a bunch of times before with my current raid 0 setup. The drive goes bad, but then it gets replaced by seagate. So I'm on my third drive from them with the same exact problem, the bios says AHCI port 0 error press f1 to continue. So here i'm thinking lets go back to defaults in the bios. Go back to the defaults in the bios and I can't reproduce the smart error again.

I was wondering if the error I was getting has any relation to a bad overclock? Currently I'm running my system on a mild overclock. But as I'm typing this everything is set back to normal/defaults. Is there any utility that can test my raid drives individually? Or should I just change it back to AHCI and run tests from a live win-xp cd?

If I remember off the top of my head my settings are:

3.4Ghz @ 1.225vcore fsb=155 x 22
VTT@ 1.2
Vdimm @ 1.5v (memory at stock clocks/timings)

As long as the HDDs are in RAID I don't know of any utility that can read SMART data, it is more a SATA controller limitation. Otherwise if you can break the array you can test everything with something like HDTune. It could be related to the OC, there were many times when some boards or even entire chipset models corrupted data on drives connected to the SATA ports; you could try rising slightly the chipset voltage on the to see how it goes, just keep an eye on the temps.

Temps aren't really an issue. I'll try to adjust the voltage. Thanks drago
