I just want to share a little story of my overclocking experience last Sunday morning. I just finished installing an easily accessible BIOS reset switch inside my computer so that I could experiment with overclocking my Shuttle SS51G. (uh oh!) If the machine doesn't boot up after a failed overlocking attempt, I could reset the computer and try again. I've increased the bus speed from 133 MHz to about 144 MHz. This also boosted the memory speed from 333 to about 360. Not too much of a boost, the system should be okay. W R O N G ! I try to boot the system, and BOTH the OS and data partitions of my hard drive are corrupted in a flash! Only problem is I found that out when I rebooted and realized I've lost my Windows XP look. I've also lost whatever allowed the Windows Update engine to work properly. On my data partition, many files were missing. Lost forever? Who knows. I ran the Windows CHKDSK utility a few times and managed to rescue everything from the data drive, but the OS partition had to be rebuilt. In the end I hardly lost anything critical. Just a few e-mail files and a couple of minor files such as my green themed Cold Fusion Winamp skin. I did have a backup of my data drive on an external hard drive so all I've lost is the OS drive, And many components from that drive were stored on separate drives or computers. CHKDSK seems to have successfully restored the entire contents of the data partition, but it still shows signs of corruption from time to time. So I'll rebuild the entire system (again) from scratch, performing a full format of the entire hard drive once I move anything not yet backed up on the external hard drive. I wasn't too panicked over this incident. It's been a very long time since I last reloaded the OS partition and it was filling up with a lot of unused left-over garbage. It was due for a clean-up. But anyone out there thinking of overclocking their systems, make sure you have full backups FIRST!
