That's what I said. Data is the only thing that can be broken... but it's not permanent

dont overclock unless you know that your pci-e frequency is locked....i lost my audigy after my pci speeds got tweaked as a result of an overclock.

I know this thread is old, but I don't see how overclocking the PCI-Express bus could cause a specific hard drive to fail. In my case, I think I just had a faulty drive. All the other drives are working fine.

I OC'd my PCI-E bus to give my OC'd HD 5970 room to breathe. With the X48 chipset, I have also found that if you boost the FSB, the PCI-E in some boards cases needs to be boosted to ensure a stable post.

So far, the only problem I have had is one hard drive failure. It was constantly failing in my RAID-0, and it started to fail more and more often. I always make windows images, so I was able to recover and get set back to the way it was the day the HD finally died.

PC Gods, bless the HD imaging angels.

My only guess is (and I still don't think this could happen) that the HDD internals set their clock by the PCIe clock. If you OC the PCIe you consequently OC the HDD internals. As you can tell, HDD internals aren't exactly cooled by anything of consequence so the increased heat kills them. This is just my hypothesis. I don't think it happens though.

I just found out what was wrong. I use a Corsair H50 water block, and it was apparently leaking. I know how incredibly rare this problem is with the Corsair H50, but I have installed and uninstalled it SOOOOOO many times, and let it hang by it's hoses, etc.

It was not leaking from the Radiator... It was leaking where the hose meets the radiator, so I did not rupture the radiator.

It is possible that the one drive was faulty, but I went ahead and bought the two new drives locally, identical models. I noticed after I installed them and that my Water Cooling system was also failing, that the packages had no serial numbers, so I just put the old drives, which were only a few months old and still under warranty, but not covered by the 30 day return policy, back in the package and returned them to CompUsa saying I didn't need them in exchange for a new Corsair H50 since I really want to keep my clocks up and temps down.

I feel a bit bad about this, but at the same time, they sold me a faulty drive that had problems from the get go. I just assumed it was an overclocking stability problem, but the SAME DRIVE, and always the same drive kept dropping off the raid.

I can only say that I am very glad to constantly back up my data externally to drives that ONLY run when they need to be accessed. I learned that a long time ago in the IT field.

ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA... When you make a change, if it is significant, make a backup. It's totally worth it to use the Vista/7 image backup feature and to keep a recovery disc on hand to bring your backup images back, and to have your data drive backed up in a separate DATA folder.

The new drives are giving me NO TROUBLE WHATSOEVER... so far. I will still keep backups. I also have a secondary backup drive in-case all hell breaks loose, I have my most important data backed up on a drive that I almost never access. I do run it from time to time to keep the oil circulating over the drive bearings and servos.
