X800XL Strange overclocking problem

Hi everybody!

I have overclocked my Radeon x800xl to 570 GPU and 570 MEM.
Stock 400 GPU and 490 MEM
Can't go higher due to artifact problem.

The problem is that I ear a strange sound... it's sound like a hard drive or a cd/dvd-rom drive spinning and stopping... Sound like future trouble...
Everything goes well except that I experience some sound difficulty went I play one specific game. (DOW)

This strange sound only appear when I play game or benchmark, test whatever...

I think it's my hard drive doing this because my power supply couldn't simply supply the power for it.

I simply want to know where this might come from, don't say to lower the overclock, I won't touch it until I and sure where this thing come from.

My config:

PSU: Antec 380 power supply
PRO: P4 3.2 OC to 3.86GHZ
MEM:2 Gig ram OC Xms 2.3.3.5
GRA: Radeon all-in-wonder X800XL
MO: Asus p4p800 Se
HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 160 GIG

6 X 80 mm blue led fan
1 X 120 mm fan
Zalman CNPS 9500 LED CPU cooler
Zalman VF-900 Cu led cooler

The more I think, this might be my PSU, but I wan your advice!
Thx.

If it were me I'd see if it was the OC since I can't identify a part. Start to back it off a little at a time and benchmark it, not for OC but for your phantom noise.
Another idea. Purchase a Doctors stethascope. Remove the case and set up your computor so it is makeing the sound and start listening to each part with the stethascope. Good luck!

Another thing along the stethoscope line is to just take a tube of about 3/8" (Clear hose like a water cooling system has) and put it in your ear & move the front of the hose opening from place to place listening for the sound. You'll know when you find it because it will be really loud.
I used to use this when I was trying to find out which lifter was going bad listening to engines...

It could very well be the fan on the video card spooling to max speed during graphics intensive apps.

Use atitool or rivatuner to adjust fan speed to 100% and see if that is the noise you are hearing.
