</div>Hello, I believe this will be down to the motherboard not having a PCI Lock and therefore the SATA ports are not locked either.<br />
<br />
Look in your BIOS menu to see if you can lock this function before trying to overclock any more <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Welcome to the forum! You should consider filling in your system spec by clicking on the User CP link above. This would help us a lot more in helping you overclock the system. Locking your PCI and AGP freq will help a bunch in squeezing more out of the CPU. If you can somehow get screenshots of your bios screens, I can help you out with overclocking it.

Below are a couple snapshots of my bios.<br />
<img src="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y19/gohandbz8/IMG_0995.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />

<br />
On the first screen if you have the options available to you, change MPS revision to 1.4 and disable spread spectrum. for the "configure Dram timing by SPD," I would just keep that on enabled so you can tweak later on. <br />
<br />
On the 2nd screenshot, hopefully you will have the "AGP/PCI Frequency." This is where you lock it in. 66/33Mhz is what you should set it to. Hope this can help you.

Looking good!!! Since you can't adjust your voltage, monitor your vcore closely with pc probe. The motherboard will up the vcore accordingly. Also, keep checking your temperature and run prime 95 to make sure you are stable. Looks like you got the hang of it. Good Luck!
