I like to OC and WC

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, my name is Dan and I am addicted to overclocking I'm a very DIY kind of person, so I tinker with my car when it's warm out and my computer when it's cold out. Also, I hate air-cooling and ATI products with a fiery passion

I'm here to hopefully learn how to get stable on a higher OC setting (currently @ 4gHz on an E7400 w/ Asus P5Q board) and I'm interested in getting into BOINC and Linux (I still use XP).

WELCOME! Hope you love what you see already and get ready to fill your head with OCN filler! Linux is awesome if you have patience to learn terminal commands. Make the jump to windows 7 and enjoy direct X 11 my friend. If you need anything please check out the specific thread to you problem and if non arises, post it up!

You're entitled to your opinion, but..

Any reason why you dislike ATI?

Wellsir, I just got tired of cursing myself every time I bought an ATI card just to watch the comparable nVidia offering blow it out of the water. I used to just buy whatever card seemed to offer the best value, regardless of the manufacturer, but over time it seemed the ATI cards went obsolete a lot faster. Seeing an nVidia best an ATI at an "ATI optimized" app was really the final straw for me

ps. I like your choice in sound cards
