Hello guys,

I have just joined OCN! Been reading the foruns since some time and come to the conclusion that OCN is an amazing forum.

I am from Portugal and a penny pincher overclocker, I've built many systems since 2004... hmmm... I am 36 y/o and I am glad that I finally joined!

When you say penny pincher overclocker, does that entail getting the most out of a high end CPU? OR does it mean grabbing any CPU you can get your hands on and getting the most out of that?

Well, I am used to buy cheaper parts, and take it to reasonable performance levels...
Celerons... Athlons... Semptrons!
I had two good systems along the way: Athlon x2 +3200 when they came out, built in a DFI Lanparty ii, had OCZ platinum DDR memory... well, was expensive in its days!

Later, in 2008, bought a Q6600 and overclocked it in a G31 gigabyte board... lol... don't forget to blow air on VRM and passive coolers while oc lol

Now I am done with a Athlon II 250, nothing much, with a nice GTX560... I will sell it by the end of the month and then, will see what I will build...

So, to answer your question, I buy the least to make the best of it...

To answer everybody, thanks to all the warmth, guys...
