Hello :)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Just came across the site as looking through general pc specs and was intrigued, so thought i'd register, had a quick look through some of the sections and nice read (alot to read).

Anyway, my names Robert, im 22. Currently studying my level to motorbike maintenance having know 3 bikes in the shed,

I've always been a pc nut but mainly just gaming,

I've built my own "rig" (pics below) and never really had any problems with my pc,

Recently got into overclocking and getting jealous of some of my friends rigs and how far he has pushed it quite amazes me, so i want to try and beat him tongue.gif (im quite competitive)

I've used the simple OC genie 2 from my motherboard for my CPU clocking (quick push of a button and enable a setting,

And for the GPU i have use MSI afterburner, pushed it to for what i feel is the limit (but surely can get more out of it)

PC specs:

Processor: intel Core(i5-2300 CPU @ 2.80GHz (Overclocked currently to 3.29Ghz, max temp at full load 45oC)
Memory: 16GB Corsair Vengeance
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 1GB

Heres a link to some scores i have just done, after trying to overclock today, (first one is very old)

This one was when my pc was stock before i messed about, it is old but nothing has changed hardware wise;
http://www.ozone3d.net/msi_kombustor/score_200.php?id=80242

This is current i ran today after some fiddling;
http://www.ozone3d.net/msi_kombustor/score_200.php?id=132472


And some pics of the rig;





Hopefully with searching through the forums and research you guys and gals can nudge me along to more power smile.gif
