Hey

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, let me give a little background on myself.

A few years ago I was a member (with different username) of a site you guys competed against in folding called ocforums. They banned me for getting mad a member over something. (I was a young teen need I say more) I asked a year or two later if they'd let me back in but they said no. Tbh I wished ever since that the site went extinct.

Recently I watched a youtube video that reminded me of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rzr3CBc6yY I was a member of there back when you guys did that. Do you remember?
I was one of the people in that rally but I wasn't a major player because my rig wasn't OCed. I had a standard intel core 2 quad with nvidia GT 8800. Which leads me to my final piece of info.

I've never OCed because I've always been nervous to and still am even though my current rig was kinda built for it. My current rig is: intel core i7 3770K, nvidia GT 440 (didn't intend to do gaming)
9GB RAM.

Yes I know the ram amount is probably lame to you guys for a desktop rig but seemed like a decent amount at the time.

You may be wondering why I got such a cpu when I wasn't planing on gaming or ocing. It's because for me simple tasks don't go as fast as I'd like or if they do they eventually slow down. Which has already happened with boot time greatly!!! Boot time is 5-10mins including login time and setup. Plus I do a lot of video converting.Oh ya and the cpu has a little water cooler (my first ever).

Most embarrassing thing to say here is the following. get ready to lol your brain out.

Even though I picked out the custom parts for my rig I wasn't the one who built it. I had a guy at the store to do because I was to afraid to screw up. (especially with the water cooler and all) What is my water cooler? I don't know exactly I don't remember and didn't pay attention to the brand name but it's just a standard little to decent sized one.

So ya that's all the info on me. I don't know if I'll oc even after joining here. I've had tendencies to do so but I don't want my rig to heat up my room anymore than it already does.

Thank you all. I just realized I made a mistake in my op post. The video I linked does not apply to you guys but I bet something similar did happen between you guys and them since you guys are ahead of them. Keep up the good work!! Maybe we can do a rally of our own one of these days in attempt to surpass the remaining teams. (extremely optimistic I know lol)
