Hey everybody!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm, as you noticed, Net_skillz!

I live in the Netherlands Europe and was born and raised in Curacao (Caribean). People tend to ask me what .... I'm doing in the cold.. Believe me, I wish I knew!
So anyway my last build was 6 years ago which is my current PC. Actually I can't say current because it gave up on me... So now I've selected a new machine and will soon be doing the build. I have never overclocked before but it seems that my Q6600 has so much overclocking potential that it would almost be a sin not to do it at least a little. So I guess I expect to be taking it to about 3,0 GHz. I've read that this CPU can do 3,6GHz so I feel 3,0 GHz should be manageble. I'll probably be asking for help and/or advice on this forum... Wish me luck!!

Hi, and welcome to the forum

And there is a perfectly good reason why you're in the cold... you want to overclock!

Welcome...cold weather is ideal for OCing so keep your tower next to an open window.

Hurry up and OC your rig already.
