Hi y'all

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi there!
I joined OCN couple weeks ago, but haven't intoduced myself yet. First off, great forum! I've taken so much info from here already.

I'm new to overclocking, but enjoying it so far. I started with a couple AM2 systems, without much success because I didn't know what I was doing. I got a new system, AM3 with a Phenom 1090T. Cranked that right up with the unlocked multiplier, but it all seemed too easy, and my real interest comes in understanding whats going on inside the system. That processor was WAAAY more than I could use, so I got my hands on an Opteron 1381. My research showed it holding a superPi record for a while, and some have gotten it to 4.1 GHz (from 2.5, seems pretty good). I started tinkering, reading guides, and here I am.

my system is:
Gigabyte 785GMT AM3
Opti 1381 (stock 2.5, current 24/7 stable 3.25 GHz)
8 GB Patriot Viper 1600
WD Caviar Black HDD

I don't game, mostly video encoding and light programming. I run Linux systems primarily, obsessed with multi-booting (there are 4 os's on my system, 3 sharing a home directory). My favorite is Mint 9 Fluxbox. Its 32-bit, so half my memory is extranious, but I like the interface and desktop.

I'm studying comp. Sci in some form or another, but had been in industry as a mechanical engineer for 10-ish years prior to going back to school. I'm early on in my curriculum, and wavering between hardware design (harder), performance computing (harder), and digital forensics (don't really know how hard).

So thats me. Nice to meet you!
