No really....

I am in the Army and I build/OC for a hobby....kind of 'spensive, but oh well, it's still cheaper than cars and motorcycles.

Got hurt somewhere outside the confines of what we call Amurica, and while healing, I started playing with this business. I had a neighbor who got me into it by first asking me what kind of temps I was carrying when I was having issues with an OTS system from one of the big 3....anyways, long story short, 3 years and 4 builds later, I found this site when looking for info on the SLACR sSpec Q6600, since I am preparing to do some upgrades to ver. 4.0 and make it 4.1.

If you have any questions, hit me up...for the one or two of you curious about "what it's like" don't ask, I won't answer. For most of you, I know you could care less, and that's cool with me....let's overclock it's safer and more fun.

Welcome and thank you so much for your service. My gratitude for you and the rest of our armed forces can't be expressed in words, but I thank you as sincerely as I know how.

Welcome to the forums. I'd pick a Q6600 over an M4 any day ^^

Thanks guys.....I normally would agree, the Q6600 has the M4 beat any day as well, a Bradley is a far better weapon system!

Well well, nice place y'all got here, I found while looking for info on the new G0 stepping quaddies, and lo' and behold you guys are alright. Thanks for having me....oh, and sometimes I curse, and my BS meter is calibrated for none, is there a filter in here?

Yep. There is a filter.

What I do is write whats on my mind, and if I wanna say damn, I replace it with dang etc, even though I don't think damn gets counted. If it does... 5h17. lol
