Hi all,
I joined yesterday, but only really just had the time to explore!

Got a lot of help with my questions, and i'm really impressed with the community on this forum! I like it!

I'm quite new to overclocking, i pretty much learn by doing, which means i struggle a lot! but im eager to learn! So i figured a forum, with people who know, may be the step i need to learn proper-like.

By day i am a systems analyst in the information team of my local hospital. but by night, i tinker with my PC and play a large quantity of games, or just generally drink till everything makes some sort of sense.

What got be into trying to overclock was while i was at uni, i could never really justify spending huge amount of my loan on PC bits, so everythgin was on a budget, and id try to over clock in order to get the best out of what i had. But now im in full time employment, justifying spending money on PC bits has become a lot easier! thusly my monstrosity of a PC exists (I call it Derek)

as you can see in my sig, my PC is a little missmatched (maybe?) I admit i bought shiny bits as and when, rather than setting out with a plan and a goal. but its still a pleasure to use.

My most recent addition, and experiment was to add a water cooling loop to my PC. 2 floods and 1 burnt out pump later i think i have somethign going. This too i learnt by doing, and i think i have nailed it... Famous last words i guess! all in all however, this is the last time i will ever make a watercooling loop, but that is another story!

Anyway, im excited to be hear, excited to elarn, adn to help if/where i can.

Thank you all, see you out there!

Hi Lanic!

Welcome to OCN! I think you and i share a same bond here. Back when i was younger, in my teens, i really couldn't afford a new spanking computer which my friends could, so i resorted to overclocking just to make sure i could play the same games with them.

Having a job and time on your hands is a good thing. Before you know it, i bet you too can be proficient in overclocking! As for me, i can and know how to overclock, but i lack the time and money for it. Its a pain staking process, testing after testing testing, you got to be fit to do this. My back has been hurting for the past few days just getting my i5 2500k rig to run.

Anyway, enough about me! I hope you enjoy your stay here at OCN!
