DVD drives failing, OC related?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My dvd drive recently failed on me again both were SATA, this is the second one in about 3 months is it possible that overclocking my mobo can damage a drive?

or is it just a case of bad luck

Wow...that does suck. I've had 5 burners and none of them have failed ever. Well technically I've got more but I don't use them and they are in the "box o stuff".

Honestly, do you have a warranty on it? Did they both die the same way? Any stressful conditions? Too much power?

I can't see how overclocking can affect a SATA device, be it a DVD drive or a hard drive.
