SB voltage causing instability?

19 Oct 2002
hi guys,

had a problem recently where my usb devices were not connecting reliably or just dropping in and out (hearing the disconnection/connection sounds all the time)

i put this down to a power issue and sure enough, a raise from 1.5v to 1.6v on the SB voltage sorted the connection issues, the usb then worked flawlessly...

however, the system then became unstable and i was getting restarts and BSODs on a VERY modest overclock...

are these related, or just really bad timing? doesnt really make sense cuz as i've said it is a very modest o/c - the o/c initially passed 24 orthos tests and the like so i have no doubt as to its initial stability...

could anyone shed any light?
