Just wondering if anybody has ever seen this problem? When I overclock my system(different settings) windows won't recognize my X-FI platinum sound card. By the way it's an intermittent issue, doesn't happen all the time. But, only happens when it's overclocked, never under normal conditions. What are the possible causes for this? Any help will be appreciated. By the way this happens with Vista and XP.

Gigabyte DQ6, F7 bios
C2D E6700
ATI Radeon 1950 Pro
2 Gigs of Kinston optima PC5300

Probably because you didnt uncouple the PCI bus from the FSB. That means that your running the pci cards faster than they should, ie overclocking the sound card too. The card cant run that fast so its cutting out. Ive had this problem before, i dunno about the bios on that mobo, and whether it has the option to seperatly set the pci bus speed, but i think it should be at 33 mhz. Though dont quote me on that.

Hmm, that makes sense. I'll have to check out my bios. Thanks
