OCN: Please tell us more about yourself.
yomama9388: I'm Jake, 16 years old, sophomore in high school. I live in Atlanta and I'm a varsity wrestler and avid computer freak. In my free time I usually am chilling with friends, playing guitar, or doing something computer related.
OCN: If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
yomama9388: When related to computers, cold.
OCN: How and when did you start overclocking?
yomama9388: I first started getting into it back in seventh grade when I played America's Army. I had been saving up for a new machine and started overclocking to boost my fps.
OCN: Where does your overclocking knowledge come from?
yomama9388: Mostly from forums and experimentation. Other overclockers are fantastic resources as well.
OCN: What are some of your favorite benchmarks?
yomama9388: SuperPi is probably my favorite, but I also like AM3 a lot. I prefer older 3dmarks (2001/2003) to the newer ones.
OCN: What is your current bench setup?
yomama9388: Well right now I'm running an E8500, Biostar I45, 4870, and I swap out ram depending on the benchmark. I'll hopefully be upgrading soon to replace this dying 8500, just saving up
OCN: What types of cooling do you use, or have used in the past?
yomama9388: Well right now I have a single stage on my processor. I started out on air, then benched with dice, ln2, moved to 24/7 water, and now to phase 24/7 with ln2/dice for benching.
OCN: What would you consider as your best overclocking achievement(s)?
yomama9388: Hmm, thats a hard one. There isn't one that really comes to mind but my favorite one was probably my first dice session with my e6300 on my foxconn mars.
