LOL! I also ran SLI 7800's in that system years ago!

First OC attempt: Q6700, and it failed, maybe because of the mobo I had

2nd OC attempt: Q9550, got it to 4GHz on air. Sold it for my i5

*edit - I remember trying to OC my old 3GHz P4, but the motherboard didn't support it (Alienware, Intel mobo)

The first chip I overclocked was a plain old Pentium 233. I was going to build a 166, but a friend that built PC's on the side got me a 233 chip for the same price as the 166. I was coming from a Packard-Bell, Putred Hell for you young folks, 486-33! There was a jumper on the motherboard that allowed me to clock it to an amazing 266MHz!

That was my first build and I've never bought a store/pre-built since.

Mine was an AMD X2 4400 on an Asus K8N SLI mobo. I think this was back in 2005 or '06.
