hi fellas,

i,m paul! getting on a bit you know how it is, i know nothing about overclocking at all! nill! zilch! nowt! any advice i might give should be completley ignored as i have managed to destroy computer after computer in a quest for speed, a bios is something i expect to see at a horse race ! been very lucky to stay on long enough to join you guys without some odd rumble or puff of smoke belching out of one of the dont have time to count fan outlets [ but its many ]

history

3 motherboards smoked.

4 cpu,s died

2 cases demolished and one bedroom window boarded up till council see there way clear on my excuse,s

a couple of mates who know absalute nothing about computers getting the hump on after taking my tips seriusly !

getting the best out of a perfectly top,stable working commy is something i need to get to grips with, or maybe leave alone,

cheers

paul

tried filling computer speck and stuff out, but got lost , try again when i aint smoked so much,

i built it for nothing, salvaged parts from dump site, got a mate works there, brings me all kinds of stuff, you would not believe what some folk chuck out.only thing i purchased was the case.

any of you wanting a cd or dvd drive for cost of postage get on to me, can normaly get them on demand for free, comes in usefull having matey working where he does.

it always supprises me what gets dumped, i think me and a mate have built over twenty pc,s for nothing, dont get me wrong they are not top spec bye any stretch of the imagination but will do the job for most people who just want to connect to the web or for general pc duties. i,m hopeing to start building a dedicated games machine shortly, any advice ,do,s an dont,s ect would be great guys.

Citizen. Good to have a another yorkshire bloke on here. for sure the pc i built wasnt the best but it runs and she only uses it for a bit of surfing and a bit of writting.

why pay when you can get it for free - should be the Yorkshire motto i think.
