Let's see what's out here... Engage!

Hello all you Overclockers!

Glad to be joining you guys finally. I've been lurking a bit over the past few days doing research on a SB build, and figured why not join in the fun :] so a bit about myself:

In a nutshell, I'm a heavily left-brained engineering student; chemical engineering & materials science with a minor in writing & rhetoric to be specific. Ultimate goals lie within the nanotechnology realm of materials science, likely dealing with potential next/future generation display technology (quantum dots) and/or whatever lies in the future for chip design. There's still time to survey the fields though, and there's never any rush. Enjoy life to the fullest, do everything you can - it's rare that we're afforded any opportunity twice, and they rarely present themselves without some coaxing.

Outside of the endless projects, I usually find myself DJing or doing graphic design - both as hobbies and as side gigs for some cash. All-in-all I find myself drawn to the arts, be it music, theatre, film, and of course the more 'artsy' games out there. For DJing I mostly spin electro/electro-house with some trance thrown in for good measure and to keep it interesting. The "popular" songs get playtime only when the event calls for it Personal listening encompasses anything that is of quality talent, regardless of genre (currently I'm rather partial to Cursive and VHS or Beta). Artistically I'm drawn to the abstract and surreal, but once again, I love to appreciate talented artists. Normally I work digitally, sans tablet unfortunately, but recently I've gone back to pen/pencil & paper. Good times.

Other random facts: I sail, I enjoy spicy food, and I spell things the British way for no apparent reason as I am through-and-through American with only one English friend.

Anyways, enough about me. I'm looking forward to joining the community here, and getting back into the computing world - the last time I dealt with computers intimately was back in Pentium 4 days!

Anything else you're curious about, just ask me; otherwise, see you all around the forums!

Cheers,
-Ricco Blodmann

I was planning on a build log, actually - pictures, and the works. As for the CPU, I'm inclined towards the 2500K, but I'm open to being talked into the i7 SB unlocked platform too. I just posted a new build thread in the general Intel forum here: http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...l#post13650212

Thanks for the warm welcome!
