Hey from Seattle!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

Seeing as I just finished my Masters and got into a PhD program, I had to pack up everything and move out to the Pacific Northwest... Seattle in particular. I've been here for about three days and I absolutely love it!

I also decided to treat myself to a new desktop computer too

This will also be the first computer I'm overclocking too, so I'm somewhat apprehensive about doing something wrong. I'm also concerned that I'll concentrate on raising the FSB speed while forgetting about the ram timings or the divider settings or the cpu voltage or the vdroop or ...

Yeah, so I'm a bit nervous, can you tell?

Nice to meet ya!

In Seattle exactly or in the surround areas? and welcome to the rain club!

Start by loosening your RAM timings and focus on your OC, then tighten up the timings when you get where you want.

Holy cow, a lot of Seattle people here. On that note, what exactly do you call people from Seattle? Seattleans? Seattleites? Seattlers? I'm living on the border of Wallingford and Fremont, a few blocks west of UW. Beautiful weather today!

Yeah, my rig might be a little on the overkill side, but at $1600 I couldn't really complain with the price. I spent about three months researching and swapping in/out parts. I almost went with the e6600/DFI 965p combo, but decided to wait and get the E6750 since it was the same price as the e6600. The DFI board doesn't fully support the 1333 MHz front side bus according to DFI Club, so I went with the P35 chipset. I've had a few Abit boards in the past that have treated me well, and found nothing but good reviews for it... aside from the strange TI Firewire chipset issue (I won't use it anyway).

I have a feeling I'll be spending quite a bit of time on these boards
