Hey all!

Being tired of my old POS, I decided to do some tactical "upgrades" (CPU, mobo, RAM & HD). As my old system was an oooooooooold NLX system (PIII-550), I basically had to transfer everything to a new case and start from scratch.

Once everything was assembled and running smooth, you'll never guess what the first thing I did was...

That's right... I o/c'd the bugger. Being conservative right now as I've only had it up and running for about, oh, 48hrs but I am running this Pentium D 805 at 115% (2.667Ghz --> 3.065Ghz)

Glad to join up with some others who like to take rules and throw them out the window and make your own!

Cheers!
