Old School OCing (old/slow equipment) > New Skool OCing (new equipment for e-peen)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Fine, OCing is partly for e-peen wagging.



But didn't it used to be that people OCed to make their older/slower equipment run just as fast (or faster) than more expensive parts?



These days, OCing new equipment simply to claim bragging rights and waving the biggest e-peen is utterly pointless, in my opinion.



Old school, baby!

Pfft.. e-peen FTL! The only reason to OC IMO is to boost performance (ok, showing off is sometimes nice though)

You wanna hear something down right pitifull. I sought out a DFI set up back in 2005 w/intentions of overclocking it and all that jazz. How ever once I bought all my hardware & OS I quickly learned that I did not need to OC my hardware to run the games at the time so I did not need to learn how to overclock. I had planned on learning the fine art of OCizm w/my first 939 get up. I had to work to many long hours so doing a lot of research to learn the art was out of the question at that time. How ever I tried to boot my system one day and it would not boot and I though my mobo was bad. So I started researching stuff on my mobo and I found out that DFI Street was a thing of the past. So this is how I ended up here to only learn a lot more about my PC then I ever knew. Once I learned how to OC I had the bug and had to start buying all new hardware just to satisfy the urge. I'm hooked on OCizm for the eye ppppeeennnizzzmmmmmmm
