Hi!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm Patrick from the Northeast. I travel a lot, so I'm currently in NY. I'm a full time student in NH.

I like overclocking...simple as that. My motherboard in my desktop can't hold a stable overclock (Biostar A880GZ), but my GT 240 is overclocked. Of course that card is limited by the PCIe power limits, so I can't overclock that much either. I don't really play games very often, simply not interested in that. Every once in a while I do play GTA IV. I run all of my computers in a LAN connected to my laptop which is tethered to my iPhone for internet.

My desktop -

AMD FX-6300 @ 3.0GHz UCed (4.3 Turbo..OCed)
8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600
Cooler Master Hyper212+
BIOSTAR A880GZ
XFX GT240 1GB GDDR5
1TB WD Blue WD10EZEX 7200rpm SATAIII
750GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATAII (runs at 5400rpm for some reason, pulled from an OEM system)
Windows 7 Ultimate Retail
Windows 7 Home Premium OEM x64

Thank you for reading and I plan on being an active member of the community! smile.gif

cool.... nice to meet you... how do you know the 750gb runs at 5400rpm as opposed to 7200 rpm?

The hard drive was pulled from an eMachines ET1831-03 (I love parting out old systems) and it was marketed to have a 5400rpm hard drive, and the BIOS in that system's motherboard said it was running at 5400rpm...when I pulled the drive out the sticker said it was a 7200.11.

That was a really odd system. That system had 4 GB of DDR2 800 ram, but it was marketed to run at 667MHz and CPU-Z stated that it ran at 333MHz or something like that...it's been about 3 years since then.

It also runs MUCH, MUCH slower than the WD drive. Takes like 4 minutes to boot into WIndows 7 HP compared to the WD drive booting in about 15 seconds including POST.

It's weird, I know.
