hello from snowy Ottawa! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Another new member here in Ottawa.

I also just finished my new system, or a near-complete rebuild, I should say. I won't post the specs here, as we're not supposed to, apparently. I replaced Mobo, CPU, RAM, Vid-card and PSU, but kept the case, DVD and HDD's (when ya already have terabytes, ya KEEP 'em, right?)

I'll be looking at tweaking Windows (WhineDohs, more like) and pushing my chip, board and vid-card to the upper limits, hopefully without blowing bits up! I ~really~ don't like the smell of burnt components, and as an ex-tech, I've done my share... I still do burn bits, but mostly in my R/C vehicles when I push ~them~ a bit too hard.

Anyone know of a local get-together group for overclockers/tweakers? Sing out, I have wheels, so I could play taxi for users & systems (it's a small wagon)

Hey there, while you shouldn't be posting your specs here, you can make sure to fill out the system specs and add them to your signature, as you see 'screaming mantis' and 'crying wolf' below in my signature.

Also, as for get together s, there will be a large on in March in Toronto, check out here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1346967/10-000-prizing-interest-in-grand-champion-series-event-march-2013-toronto/

Other then that I don't know of anything, I would be down for a small get together in Ottawa some time.
I also have a car and can provide lifts.

Cheers,
Schubie

Hey,

Thanks for that tidbit Schubie, I'll do that next.

It usually takes me a bit of time to get up to speed on things... getting older with chronic pain issues, but luckily my time is my own, not much I need to 'schedule' except medical appointments and get-togethers w/ friends.

Dunno about Toronto, I'll have to see what things are going on, and if I can make arrangements and have the dinero to waste.

And yea, would be nice to meet other locals, we might ebven be able to help some others get down to Toronto, share the expenses and stuff.

Hey mate welcome to OCN.
post #15 of 16
If it is snowin' then it must be cold. Time to put your rig outside your window and break some world records... or just break stuff in general biggrin.gif

Welcome to the forums. See you around.

Yeah something like -32C today as the low.. forget putting my new rig outside on the balcony to break records, I need it inside to keep me warm! tongue.gif

thanks for the welcome! smile.gif


& to those other locals.. An Ottawa OCN meetup would be nice, sometime! I convinced the bf to join up short after me, so that's one more to add.. Let's wait til it's a bit warmer first though, mmk?
