Newbie from Illinois

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have been using the forums of OCN for a little while and decided to sign up. I am a bit of a novice at overclocking and what not but I enjoy learning new things about computers and their functionality and hopefully turning that knowledge into some performance gains for my PC gaming experience. You'll probably see me posting on lots of threads with lots of questions and I will strive to make sure they aren't total newb questions answered elsewhere in guides and other threads. So, yeah...Hai OCN smile.gif

Welcome fellow illinoisian. You will find everything you will ever need to know about computers here. First think you need to do is fill out your sig rig so when you do have a problem we know what kind of hardware you have.
Worse than crack.

Phew, just filled out my sig rig. Pretty humbling and just shows how much I need to learn smile.gif The ram stick product match wouldnt pop up my current ram so had to fake it a bit until I can go find some specs. (Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2xGB) DDR 3 1600)
