late introduction

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Since ive already been here for a few days, this intro is kinda late. i completely forgot it due to a stability problem (solved).

on other forums (C&C Modding community) im also known as ChielScape, so i decided to keep the name.
i got interested in overclocking a few months ago, and finally got my first completely self-built PC (i bought my other 2 before i really got into it), and my first time overclocking as well, with the exception of my x700 while waiting for my 8800, which i ordered a few months before the rest of the new system.
(so from experience i can tell that a p4 3.0GHz/i615 chipset really limits the card)
though ive started posting only a few days ago, i was hanging around here for a few months, reaserching, and learning how to overclock, before i did something that could potentially waste a lot of money.
though i didnt reach my goal of 3.5Ghz, 3.36 is still far from slow, and im quite happy with it.

i mostly spend my time either gaming or watching anime, so im lucky to have a new PC before summer vacation starts. (i'll have to go look for a job though)
im planning to mod my case for some better airflow, since it isnt one of those expensive ones with good airflow as it is. (€10,- server tower)

Why i chose OCN? it appeared to be the most active forum, and looks nice.
over the past months it turned out to be the right choice. most of what i learned, i have learned from OCN.

EDIT: looking at other ppl's intro's, i mightve overdone it a little ;P

i honestly wonder why, 'cause i personally hate this country. it's got crappy weather, no morals, a ****ty government and hentai for mobile phones is advertised on TV in between kids shows. (did i mention the lack of morals?)
plus the fact torrentspy's got its servers here, and started tracking its users. (according to the news section here)
im thinking of emigrating to Japan, though id have to learn the language first. (anime FTW!) really cheap PC parts there too!

anyway, got some pics of the hardware.
