Can OC'ing fry a hard drive?
I have a not too old Maxtor hard drive in my new system---ABIT BX-133 with a Cele566---that I pushed to about 800mhz. It worked great for a couple of days, but yesterday I could only get my system to boot to the Windows display screen and then it would hang for about 2 minutes and then give me a message saying that some data was unreadable on the disk. I did a "scandisk" and about 4% of the way through the scan I started getting "bad cluster" messages over and over again. Is it just coincidental that my HD has crapped out on me, or did OC'ing my system do it?
