First Time Builder and Overclocker

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I am currently in the process putting together my first build. (See my sig, let me know what you think.) I am just waiting for the last couple parts to get shipped, and then I plan on jumping in head first. I was made aware of the site by member Smykster, who is a swell dude and has been super helpful. I just want to say thanks to you all. Merely lurking on the forum (for countless hours) has made me feel far more confident about my build. I hope to eventually learn enough to get into some serious OC'ing and water cooling. I'll definitely be asking some dumb questions along the way, so bear with me, but feel free to be brutally honest. I won't be offended, I swear.

Welcome to OCN

Your build looks very nice you will have some fun with it of course. When you get into OCing I'm sure no decent member will think questions are dumb we are all here to learn and experiment.thumb.gif
