I have a cheap Motherboard (asus P5GZMX) and the slowest ddr2. But I overclocked the Core2 Duo to 1.86ghz & 2.10 (300 bus speed) it runs ok but I get less performance after overclocking?

Also After I Overclock my SATA HD stops working?

I have an en 7600GT

Any Ideas much appreciated cos this sucks I was getting better frames on my P4 3.6

I'm not an overclocking guru, but since you have "slow ram" I would recommend setting a divider.
Also, the type of ram, and maybe some pics of your bios might help me a little.

Refering to the Sata drive stopping. Have you tried switching sata ports?

Did you make sure your system is stable after the overclock?

These programs are what i recommend: SuperPi (must have 2 instances running for Dual Core CPU's), 3DMark 05 and 3DMark 06, and stress prime 2004 (stress prime should also have 2 instances running.

SuperPi - Run in 32M and if you crash your not stable.
3DMark 05/06 - If you crash your not stable.
Stress Prime 2004 - Run in Tourture test in Blend mode for atleast 8 hours. If you crash, again, your not stable.

I would try to keep your temps below 60C.
