How did you find Overclock.net? - Page 56

post #551 of 558
Like many others here, I was looking for a review of something (a power supply in my case) and was impressed by the well written, easy to understand vernacular your reviewer used (so non-technically advanced laymen like me can easily digest and understand the info). I started checking the forums, expecting the usual childish nonsense... but certainly came away refreshed by the maturity and pragmatism of the advice being given here. Really, good on all of you guys. It leaves a really good impression = )

Like most, I was just doing research on PC parts. OCN links kept coming up on Google and it didn't take long to realize there's a lot of very knowledgeable people here. thumb.gif

Eventually, I just skipped Google and went straight to OCN! biggrin.gif

I was also researching components for a build, and OCN was the only forum I found that didn't look cluttered. biggrin.gif

Last year I got my first mobo and CPU (FX6100 and ASRock 970). I searched for overclocking guides and tips and OCN stood out from the rest.

IMO the current AMD line up and the intel LGA 1156 and LGA 1366 systems are the best for new overclockers. Inexpensive and tons of potential. thumb.gif

I had a hard time finding any forums where people at least sounded as if they knew what they were talking about when it comes to overclocking. Then I ran across overclock.net on google. The site has been super helpful!

Essentially the exact same thing for myself as well.

Just was in the process of buying the build i have in my sig and wanted to be sure I knew 100% about it, not being a fan of going to a large amount of websites, I found OCN and this has been my #1 go to site for any questions or issues.

Its been a massive help! I suggest it to ALOT of people on if they ever have any questions about anything
