Coming back to overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Greetings!

I'm coming back not for serious overclocking yet, but more to play around.

I haven't overclocked anything since my 486DX2-50 became a 66mHz. Since I've got experience all the way back to the 8088, I haven't been too greedy with computing power in recent years...I remember the old PCjr taking an eternity to count 64kb RAM.

I've been lurking a while, looks like soon I'll buy a mobo and see what it takes to melt this old Pentium 940 (which will be replaced with an honest to god monster once I get all my research done) since I want to get my feet wet again.

Great looking site, much more approachable than some of the other forums.

See you around the fold,

GSM
