scsi or ide in a C300A O/C TO 450
Just thinning if I put a isa Adaptec scsi card and 2 Seagate barracuda 4GB scsi HD in an C300A O/C to 450 fsb to 100 would that make it more stable then an ide Western Digital 2GB HD in windows as I can only run stable at 375MH 85 fsb in windows95 AND windows98. I have tried different voltages to no avell
SCSI cards dont like the overclcoking side of things. I have a mix setup ( IDE & SCSI ) and I cannot overclock my 300a anything past 340 without having SCSI probs.
That's true, SCSI card has a low tollerance to higher FSB speed. But since you are just using 100MHz FSB, the ISA or PCI will not be overclocked. If you have other SCSI device in your system, then going SCSI all the way would be advisable - except that SCSI harddrives are more expensive than IDE.
If you do not have any plan using other SCSI device, then IDE would be a more economical path to take.
I'm running a 300A at 464Mhz with IDE & SCSI.
3 IDE drives, 1-2GB SCSI Barracuda, Adaptec 2940UW controller.
Now probs, even recorded a bunch of audio tonight on the Barracuda...
Overclockers dance on the skirts of the bell-curve. The luck runs both ways.
What is your video card ?
I have heard TNT and SCSI card aren't the best friends
I am running 300a o/c to 450 with a Graphics Blaster TNT, a Fireport 40 SCSI controller and have no problems whatsoever.
