    That writer should alright with overclocking but what CPU and motherboard are you using? Most later version BX motherboards have a 1/4 PCI divider.

    Being the case, your writer should be running at spec.

    I have an OEM Ricoh MP7060A that's done great writes on a 36.66666 Mhz PCI bus. I've also seen it do a write on 42 Mhz PCI, but I wouldn't call that average. I'm at 110Mhz FSB and 1/3 PCI. Usually 1/4 PCI starts at 124, go for a few more Mhz....

    Dual Celerons 366@605, cache latency 0/1, aircooled! As of tonight, my Alphas got an upgrade. I took a resistor off my Sanyo Denki's and now they run 5000rpm! Beat that, TNProud2B! Hoochcooler my butt! Can't do 600Mhz, like my steeking Alphas!

    Had to do that, sorry.

    I personally advise, strongly, against anything over PCI 37.5Mhz with an IDE CD-RW.

    I also advise against an IDE CD-RW generally, as SCSI is a lot more reliable (and tolerant). Of course you have the greater cost...but I wont OC PCI more than a couple of Mhz if I had an IDE CD-RW, such as the HP 8200i. Also, if it breaks, you got no warranty.
