I have just received confirmation from Dr. Pro the technical expert of ALBATRON with regards to this problem. Below is the reply from DR. Pro;

"Thank you for using our product, and sorry for the inconvenience.
You may try to fix the SRC at 100.(Virtually,Intel and Award haven't recommended to use SATA in overclocking.)But please notice, overclocking may damage your system device and make your system unstable.It's not in our service policy.Please kindly understand it."

In brief this motherboard cannot be overclocked using SATA drives. The overclocking features only works with the old IDE
hard drives.

Please advise all members who intend to buy PX865PE PRO2 motherboard that this motherboard cannot overclock using SATA had drives.

fortunately i don't use SATA at all right now since i was waiting for Ghost2003 to support SATA drives and now waiting for Lsilogic to release a firmware for their MegaRaid SATA-6 raid controller to support >137GB SATA drives.. they slipped up and don't support 48bit addressing right now.. for a US$359 controller that suxs hehe

Damn, that is not good at all. . . . Did they clarify why you cannot OC w. the SATA drives? Driver, BIOS, etc. ? ? ? :confused:
