    Just recently started having drive issues with my system... see my specs

    • Earlier last week, I was unable to burn a DVD (it froze at either 100% or 99% with Nero).
    • Last night I was trying to do some data backups between hard drives and Consistently got CRC errors, this was between an IDE, SATA and USB drive (all combinations).
    • For a while now, I've had very sporatic BSOD's (rare). I have been blaming the video card, but now I'm not so sure.
    I've been running overclocked for some time at a conservative 3.2Ghz (400FSB x 8). It has been stable to 3.5 Ghz.

    • So I decided to drop the FSB back to stock (266). It seemed to work. On on copy attempt, I did get one CRC error, but then subsequent attempts were fine.
    • Haven't tried burning a DVD yet.
    So my first thought is the Corsair memory. Second is the motherboard itself - the northbridge gets HOT even in idle.

    Any suggestions to ferret out the problem?
