Finally found time for a long-overdue introduction

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN! It's great to be here smile.gif. I've always wanted to get into the best of PC hardware, and over the last weeks I've become more and more of a fanatic- something that might never've happened if it wasn't for OCN!

After creating dream builds of PC's on hardware webshops for years (which I never ordered when I was done), I finally set my mind on assembling my first custom super pc a few weeks ago. So I did! Apart from a few minor flaws in my design choices (No SSD, Micro-ATX MB.. doh.gif), it's turned out to be a great machine (not entirely without OCN-help).

Of course, I had a lot to learn when I started this- and that rapidly and repeatedly brought me here. I became an OCN-member some weeks ago now, and boy am I enjoying myself smile.gif. Being used only to the cold-hard forums of StackExchange, I am pleasantly surprised by the enthousiasm of the OCN community, and the awesomeness and helpfulness of its members.

So thank you all, awesome-fellow-OCN members, thanks for fueling my hardware&OC enthousiasm, for your willingness to share the heap of knowledge you collectively have, and the many new entries on my 'upgrades-to-come' list! biggrin.gif

I'm hoping to get a lot more involved here- and perhaps even pay back for the knowledge provided to me in kind some day. It's great to be here smile.gif.

Oh, and here's my thread on the thoughts considered while putting together this first build I speak of, which in turn may be found in my sig.
