    I have an Audigy MP3. Like I have mentioned before on another thread I am trying to o/c it. If I o/c my cpu to 12 x 170 and run PCMARK04 it run through the test without a problem. If I go above 170, and run PCMARK04 I locked up at AUDIO CONVERSION. I have ran MEMTEST/SiSoft Sandra numerous times and all those test pass. I am just wondering what would be causing this.

    ATI 9800 o/c 400/315

    Make sure you have the PCI bus locked to 33mHz. Sound cards don't do too well with an overclocked bus. They usually don't run above 36-37 mHz.
