Hey all,

I just bought two 80Gb Sata drives. I was going to put them in a RAID-0 (i have a third 80GB harddrive for any important backups).

I dont HAVE to overclock my computer (see sig) but I cant help pushing my barton to the 2Ghz mark. Just HOW unstable is a raid in a overclocked PC? Anyone out there tried it?

That is an nForce2 board right? If so, you should not have any corruption issues since the PCI divider is locked.

Even if it wasn't, I used to run my 2 Maxtors in RAID 0 on an Abit KT7-R overclocked 24/7 and never had an issue. I would not be afraid to do it at all, but remeber to back up religously! I have always backed up and never really lost anything important. I currently keep an 80GB external USB drive for back up storage of important files plus burn CDR's of the drives contents. Redundant back up.....

You should be fine....
