    DVD affected most by Overclocking

    My computer runs stable at PIII 500 @ 600 2.3V however when DVD movie is played sound is kinda messed up. When I play a music cd it is not affected at all. When I change it to 550MHZ, everything is ok. Is there anyway I can get this thing fixed? I know it is not a sound card problem. I want to keep that 6X Toshiba DVD. Anyone has DVD drive that overclocks well?

    What is your PCI set to ( ie. 1/4 divider or 30MHz )? I'm assuming you have a DVD Decoder card, and if you set your PCI divider to 1/3 it might not like that, try 1/4 divider.

    are you using software decoding or hardware. if it is hardware my guess it that cannot handle the 120mhz FSB.
