Hello from Canada!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

SmurfsRCool here, 23 and from Canada. I enjoy PC gaming, always have and always will. I have built my own rigs in the past, and now it's time to upgrade and get involved. My friends are big into the overclocking scene, so I decided to give it a shot and see what it's about.. and I must say, "do like".

Hope to help out around here when I can, and get help where needed. Until then, frag on!

Canada isn't a real place.

Back on topic - I was captivated by the whole process of overclocking the first time I tried it. It's like a drug. See how high you can fly!

Hi, I'm Gawlron, also from Canada. Just water-cooled my PC - loving it. Was a lot of fun building it. I'm a gamer (console and PC, but moving back to PC) have about 20 years of building PCs experience.

Cheers,

Thanks for the welcome all! I also must agree, it is a drug. This is the first time I've really attempted to overclock and I got to 5.0 GHz with no hiccups and no BSOD's! Google has done me well...
