Hi-tech Viking sneaks a peak.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.
I'm a 24 year old guy from Denmark. I've been dabbling with computers for a long time, but after my latest build, I've been wanting to explorer overclocking at a modest/entry level. I haven't done much in the way of overclocking. Last time I bought a new computer was 6 years ago, and I'm ashamed to admit I didn't build it myself, first of all, but also that I hadn't really done my homework in terms of what parts I wanted/needed, so I ended up with the notorious E6600 CPU (yes, it's that long ago, it was shiny back then), which was damn near impossible to get stable above stock speeds, and being a beginner then and now, I gave up.

However, with my latest build, the possibilities of toying with the numbers have opened up, and so, that's what I've been doing. I have no interest in quick and dirty OC's, however. Despite a very shy OC of 4250Mhz on my i7-3820, I've been running several LinX tests, and a 12h prime95 session, just to ensure stability.

Anyway, I've made an album with a few pictures from the build process, and a few of my setup. Description included Clicky! smile.gif
Also, in my signature there's a link to my build, should it have caught your interest.

Kindly,
Nox

Velkommen:-) Danskene var vel ikke akuratt vikinger, var vel mere svensker og nordmenn biggrin.gif Danmark "reiste seg" etter vikingtiden

Well, in ocn there are a lot of trolls, opinions are facts for some, but the majority will give you great help. So you come to the right place!

Så vidt jeg ved stammer mange af de 'store' vikinger fra Danmark. Nordmænd, for eksempel, nedstammer fra en kombination af danske/norske vikinger.
Og Sverige er i mine øjne ikke andet end en fortabt, dansk koloni tongue.gif

Honestly, I think I'll bump into trolls regardless of where I go, but I've been practicing the art of troll-dodging for years, so I hope it'll work here too.

Thank you, thanks, and eh, they're overrated.
I mean, mine is actually rather tiny, and I think I've been out there once or twice (I don't mow the lawn myself). But hey, the 'view' is nice smile.gif

Thanks guys, appreciate the warm welcome smile.gif

I will say, though, your site is giving me a headache. I fell over the FAH project and thought.. hey, that's cool, I want in on that. So, I spent a few hours setting it up inbetween other tasks, and now that I have it up and running and finished my projects for the day, I spot a title a line or two down - BOINC. What's this now?

Sigh! I have to decide what I fancy more. Did no one tell New World Order that choices suck? Simplicity is key!
