Got hit by the OC bug for the first time!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

I just bought a new 27 inch imac with i7 and GTX 680mx

Started playing with OC the GPU for the first time in my life. Not knowing what I was doing at all biggrin.gif aside from some youtube videos I started a web search and landed here. I can see a lot of Mac hate on posts so far but I am hoping we can all get past that and I can get some good help from everyone.

So hi to everyone from the oil fiends in Odessa TX!

Now that you've started you won't stop. I have my 3570k @ 4.7ghz, I have my 1600mhz corsair vengeance running at 1866mhz, I have my 2 GTX 570s running at 820,1640,2100. If I could overclock my DVD I probably would. Welcome to the club my friend. thumb.gif
