Hello from Colorado!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
HI all,

mjhammer (Mike Hammontre) here from Wheat Ridge, Co, just outside of Denver.

I just finished up with what I consider to be a top notch gaming rig and it kind of falls right in line with what is discussed on these forums. I have questions, and have been doing a lot of overclocking on my own, kind of learning as I go, but every time I google something about my rig, I end up with a list of posts from this forum.

I decided to cut out the middle man and join up and just participate in the forums I keep ending up in anyway! Right?

A quick note on myself, I've been in computing one way or another since about '82. I've been building and engineering systems since the old 8086 days. That kind of gives you a general idea of my base of knowledge around computers, computing, writing code, building systems, etc. Right now I'm a Linux/Unix/Solaris systems administrator for a large multinational company that flies a lot of satellites. If you have any form of satellite TV, you probably are using one of our sats. 'nuff said on that one. heheh. I've also been a gamer since before the term existed. My teen years wasted a lot of quarters in the video arcades and I think I have owned every gaming console ever made. I still prefer FPS games on the computer over anything else. I'm also a big NFS fan.

Well, off I go to the AMD and water cooling forums. I've been looking for some baseline numbers on my FX-8350 temperatures.

Thanks for having me and I hope to chat with you on some subject of mutual interest in the future!!
