Could it be my Sound cArd

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.

2100 XP o/c 180 x 12
Audigy MP3
ATI 9800 o/c 400/315
Abit AN7
256 x 2 HyperX PC3500

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
