Hello and thank you

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First off, thanks to everyone in the community for all the advice. While I have not posted on this (nor any other) site regarding overclocking, I have been getting great advice and results for comparison from you for a few years, so I figure it's time to throw my hat in the ring.

I've been futzing around with computers for a couple decades now, but have only gotten into hardware in the last few years. I built my first machine in 2007 when I wanted to abandon both console gaming and the sun in order to build a machine that could play Crysis. I mean, all the cool kids were doing it. So I threw a Q6600 together with an 8800GTS 512 (after months of exhaustive research), ran up the clocks a bit, and viola!

The funny thing is that in the end, the machine probably spent more time rendering the auction house in Orgrimmar than the lush forests on the Ling Shan Islands. Damn my friends.

A year ago I upgraded big time to a 3570K and a couple of GTX 670's, and have been fiddling with those for a while.

Nice to meet you all in a less creepy internet voyeuristic way! thumb.gif
