Howdy from Texas!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Howdy, ya'll! I've been lurking around for a while, and figured it was time to hop in. Over the last several years I've been gradually working my way up from a tearing apart (and rebuilding) an iMac G3 to building a PC and now Overclocking my machines - I've pretty much hit the limit of my own knowledge and am looking forward to improving my OC and learning a thing or two!

I do have a number of computers i've built for myself an friends, but my main rig - and the first I built from scratch - is The Noisy Beast - an i7-950 @ 4.2 Ghz and dual GTX 570s in SLI - with a couple pictures below... i'll have to grab some better shots during daylight. Clearly I need to work on my cable routing smile.gif






On a side note - one of the lesser known features of the iMac? Target Display Mode. This older (2009) 27" iMac is STILL a fantastic 2560x1440 IPS display for cards with Displayport. Skyrim looks AWESOME.
