LIVE Benchmarking and overclocking ideas and feedback wanted

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm still a new member to ocn and any oc forum and after a couple of months of learning and overclocking and upgrading a few pc's I have discovered a strong desire to do this as a hobby. By no means am I saying that I am an expert and I definately am not claiming to know more about anything than anyone on these forums but I really would like to go further into this and spend some money in the beginning of 2012. I plan on purchasing a platform from both intel and amd and some test bench equipment for them. I would like to do some reviews @ stock speeds of whatever cpus or discrete cards I can get a hold of and then do some overclocking maybe even get into no2 for extreme over clocking. I'm interested in broadcasting my tests through bambuser or ustream so that you guys may chat with me or give me tips or feedback. It will be my very beautiful wife and I doing this together as I am slowly getting her interested in this as well. The reason I'm not able to start sooner is a money and knowledge issue. I want to just be able to purchase what I need to start off when I've saved up enough and of course I am going to learn as much as I can in the mean time so that I fry the least amount of hardware as possible during my sessions. Please do not respond back with negative responses and do know that I am serious and really am trying and wanna learn the art of overclocking and help others gain as much as they can from watching and participating. The reason that I am posting this now is to kinda get some ideas from the OCN community. I would like some good sites to get benching equipment, tips on how to run it, lists of the more "popular" benching software, and really just whatever you guys and gals can think of to help me on my journey. Also if this sounds like something you all might be interested in watching or following also let me know. If I just help one person out or teach someone something they didn't know I would be happy with that. I have been in the Air Force for 8 years and now I work for the city where I live and I have just always wanted to have a hobby but I just haven"t been able to find that hobby. Its just really awesome to stumble upon this and joining the OCN community with all these people that are complete strangers that are willing to help me whenever I reach out with a question. My schedule is 12 hour shifts for 7 days straight then I'm off 7 days straight so I will have plenty of spare time to get something really good going here. Please give me some feedback and I shall respond shortly. Thanks for reading my novel and I look forward to hearing from u all!

Here is a link to the benchmarks used for hwbot, the site where benchmark scores are ranked globally http://hwbot.org/benchmarks
Most guys start of with air & water cooling, then move on to extreme cooling if they get a taste for benching.
If you have any questions this section & the hwbot section ( http://www.overclock.net/overclock-net-hwbot-team/ )are the places to post, you will probably want to check out the dry ice/liquid nitrogen cooling section as well: http://www.overclock.net/dry-ice-liquid-nitrogen/
There is also a thread to post links to live streaming benchmarking sessions here: http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...ms-inside.html

Good luck & have fun benching!
