Why/How did you get into extreme cooling? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
it was the runny noses and losing the feeling in my fingers when getting up at 4 am to bench outside in the coldest air that made me want to get something better.

For me extreme cooling just came as a natural progression from regular overclocking. I started by building my own first system, overclocking that to get more performance when gaming, I soon signed up to my first forum and found myself sharing overclocking results and participating in benchmarking threads. From there it went on, I always wanted more performance and loved overclocking.

Over time it became less about gaming and more about the overclocking and benching. I went from air and moved to water where I hit 4GHz for the first time on an X3360, then it was an icy slushbox, first time over 4.5GHz, A/C unit converted to a chiller, and finally LN2. No regrets, I wouldn't trade this hobby for anything. biggrin.gif
