New to the Boards

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Came here for advice, and to learn some of the new tricks. I dont have the most OC Friendly board out there, btu I am not interested in the absolute ultra max I can get, if I need that sort of speed, I will buy a faster CPU.

What I am after is the ultimate in reliability and stability for the system as a whole. Right now, I am VERY modestly overclocked, and very stable.

So I will mostly be reading and lurking until I have something to say which may help someone else out, or unless I have trouble and need a hand

Nice to be here.

Robert

No, not really new to the fun. My first real computer was a TRS-80 Mod 4.. then built my own 8088 back "In the day" lol. But stopped the OC game around the time of the P 133's and K5/K6 series CPU's. Figured with the new hardware, I would play some.

Been playing with my old PC (Now the wifes), and had some success, she now has my P4 3.2Ghz which I was able to do a little with, but it was an Asus P5ND-SLI board, which really wasnt very efficient for the purposes.

I do IT stuff on the server side professionally, and have for a lot of years, also certified on Cisco and EMC SAN.. so if I can answer any questions or offer advice on that side of the house, feel free to ask, but a little behind the times on the desktop side until i can catch up.
