Hello! From an old school overclocker!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I have been reading this site and using information I have gathered here for almost a year now. I finally decided to sign up and get it on some of these great discussions and hope to contribute!

By old school overclocker, I mean I used to overclock my amd k6-2's from 333mhz to 450mhz with VIA motherboards and crazy jumper settings. Those were the gold old days of straight hardware overclocking. My very first computer that was actually mine, and not my parents, was an AMD k6-2 333mhz 64mb of pc133 ram w/ a Diamond Viper 16mb pci video card. I believe it is a TNT. The funny thing about this was, I had never put a computer together before, so I had no idea what I was doing, aside from matching components to the slots and putting the red line on the IDE cables on pin-1. I didn't have a CPU heatsink so it would turn on and after about 10 minutes, just turn off on me. After a few days of wondering what was going on, I called my friend and he told me to get a heatsink for the CPU. I was in junior high at the time and had no money and no way of describing what I needed to my parents. I found a solution though. I was able to underclock my AMD from 333mhz to 233mhz and it ran stable!

I really enjoy playing games on the computer and I enjoy building computers and modding, no matter how small or big the mod is.

Hope to chat with the best of you!

I mainly play World of Warcraft on it, but not as much as I used to. Mostly games, I try to play most pc games but sometimes the wallet runs a little thin.

My big thing is how loud the PC is. This is a new obsession though. I have the comp hooked up to an old analog amp with some KLH Model-6's. I listen to all types of music with these and there really isn't any replacement for them. No one makes speakers like this any more. They were originally my grandpa's and he purchased them in 1962 for listening to big band jazz music.
