A Few Of Txtmstrjoes Personal Quot Truisms Quot
Here is a collection of personal truisms about overclocking/overclockers:
- "Will this work" or "What's the max speed I can get" questions come most often from people unwilling to try anything at all.
- Everyone can have and voice an opinion on anything, but not nearly everyone should because of the lack of actual experience and understanding about the subject.
- Testing is knowing; not testing is wishful thinking.
- Most of us are easily tempted, but only some actually act on the temptation.
- Overclocking is just like Aesop's "The Tortoise and the Hare." Guess who won the race in the end..?
- Time is money, as they say; overclockers burn it like there's no tomorrow.
- Subtlety is, sadly, a dying art.
- The bludgeon is not as artful as the scalpel (at least for me, it isn't).
- He who shouts the loudest is heard; he who speaks wisely is listened to.
- The best consequence of overclocking is the friendships born from mutual struggles and shared successes.
- There's something far more satisfying in staying behind the curve and getting the best bang for the buck, compared to staying on top of the curve and over-spending.
- Early adopters are unpaid beta testers.
