Hello from the Great White North

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

It's actually not that cold where I'm at right now. In fact I can see grass. and some dirt, is that worm? Anyways I'm from Canada, Alberta to be specific. I am just starting to get into overclocking, and more of the hardware side of systems. I have always loved the software side, and did build my first PC, but now I am getting into building a MONSTER and maximizing the performance I can get.

My Specs are as follows on my current rig:
I7-2600k @3.40 - I plan to begin overclocking this weekend. I hate it when work interferes with fun stuff don't you?
Asus P8P67 LE Revision 3.0
12GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 Ram @ 1333 - How many days until Friday?
Asus Radeon HD6850 - Second one on it's way this weekend
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 64mb cache
Crucial M4 128GB SSD
Corsair HX850
Dark Fleet (DF-15 case) With a sweet, sweet SSD hot swappable easy access drive bay.
Arctic Cooler Freezer 13 Pro
Some thingy that I put my discs in, it's really loud though.

Others:
Samsung Syncmaster (19" and 24")
Bose Companion 5

Besides computers, I'm a huge music nut. I feel like life is just too boring without a soundtrack, and whenever possible I love to get up to the mountains.

Well, it's that time again, ice fishing! (gotta bring in the money somehow right?)

Thanks man. I know right. Helps keep me doing something when I'm bored at work. I'm an IT guy so it's pretty easy for people to think I'm just working. I have now found my new most frequented web page smile.gif

Thanks guys! I'm liking it so far. It's a fresher when people are nice, I find everyone these days is just a dick, but of course it's cause they're more important than everyone else.

Totally, I don't see what the rush is all the times. I mean if they're on their way to pickup some new parts, understandable, otherwise just relax. Ahh awesome man, Canada is the place to be. I'm in Calgary Alberta. Thanks man I'm excited, got all my stuff in and ready to go, I'll probably grab the card after my massage tonight (AWW YEAA) and get to it! Friday indeed, second only to Saturday.
