#1

I have read through the forums and they suggest that some sony's are rebadged lite-on's.

I have an old 8x sony (Crx140e) that i would dearly love to update/oc and so i thought i would post something here as i have been unable to find an oc'ing information about it anywhere on this forum.

Can anyone help me out?

thanks.. and sorry for the n00b factor

Unlikely. From what I’ve been able to gather on this and various other sources, Sony used Liteon drives from 16x onwards. Perhaps someone could correct me if I’m wrong.

Correct, only a few 16X and most 24X and newer is Lite-On, the older is made by Sony( OAK chipset).
