Hello from sunny (for the time being) Manchester

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

I have been a regular visitor to the forums and finally decided to join.

I used to build computers about 10/12 years ago but I had to give the hobby up due to studies taking a priority. Anyway, my studies were over 3 years ago, got a decent job and got married. I have a 15 month old son and we have another cheeky one on the way (due in October).

Since I have got some spare time now (that is, of course until the next one arrives), I thought I will build a desktop/gaming PC to replace my ageing laptop. I will also be looking to overclock the PC when I do get eventually build it, and also get into watercooling.

It's good to join you guys. smile.gif
