Greetings OCN!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!,

I've been kinda lurking around for a while, I used to read up so much on these forums, but most of that knowledge has definitely faded. I've been into building systems mostly for gaming for about eight years now. I really haven't had a decent gaming rig for the past 3 years or so though, but I finally was able to build a decent amd system after many efforts working the wife over to get her to allow me to buy the parts I was seeking out.wink.gif

I'm 23 out of Minnesota, I've never been one for overclocking systems until now, where I can actually afford to blow a part up here and there tongue.gif, but really I got a hold of an fx8150 + asetek/amd closed loop system back in January for a really cheap price through a sale on newegg, and recently made quite a few upgrades to my computer which allowed me to swap my old parts into a system for my wife, and allowed me to build my current system. I'm definitely here to learn a lot, and make some friends a long the way smile.gif. I'm getting back into PC gaming; at the moment its a lot of battlefield, diablo etc.

I pretty much have one friend that I do system building with, It used to be a real big hobby of mine when I was lil younger. The area I live in really isn't loaded with PC enthusiasts, so I never did get much into the more hardcore push your system to higher limits side of things, but I plan on finally breaking through that barrier and becoming more comfortable with the processes. I did post over on the AMD board, but I definitely wanted to back track an stop over here to say hello!

This is my current setup, I had to be a little price conscience about it a lil bit, but its working out well /

Case // Corsair 200R ATX
Mobo // Asrock 990FX Extreme4 AM3+ socket
CPU // AMD FX8150 8core 3.6Ghz w/ Asetek/AMD closed loop water cooler.
Ram // Corsair Vengeance 4x4Gb 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5V
HDD // OS drive - OCZ RevoDrive x2 pci-e ssd 100gb - AHCI
2x WD 250gb 3.0gb/s -- raid 0 -- games
1 WD 600gb 3.0gb/s -- storage.
PSU // Chieftec 850 watt modular
Video // 1x Gigabyte GTX 650Ti Boost
Optical // HP sata dvd rw
My other devices include a 24inch 1080p Dell LCD Display, Playstation Pulse Elite wireless headset ( yes I used this for just about everything with audio output ), Razer Naga mouse / Razer lycosa keyboard.

I definitely spent the last two nights fighting with that revodrive getting it to work correctly while allowing my 250's to run in their raid 0 config. I had so much fun doing that, and it was so gratifying when I finally got it all working correctly, and watching my windows boot up in the blink of an eye was very satisfying redface.gif . That alone definitely reminded me why I loved custom systems so much, and just computers in general.

Thank you for your time! thumb.gif
