    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.
    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak.

    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.
