Hey guise!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just joined up on the forum to meet some fellow gamers and overclockers,

My names adam, im in perth western australia. Computers have been a hobby of mine since a young age. i remember when i was 12 years old rebuilding our old pentium 1. 100mhz.. God she was a beast 32 meg of ram!

My current system is a Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 G0 stepping. O/C to 3.2 on water for daily use, have taken it up to 3.8 stable (prime95 tested) but i feared a shortened CPU lifespan at the required voltage. and 3.2 is fine, destroyed my mates phenom 2 x4 at those clocks in all benches. Proved what i needed to prove (he wasnt as impressed as i was sadly)

Other specs are 4gig Crucial generic ram (2x 2gig Dual channel), GeForce GTX460 gpu (bout to pick up another for SLi in the next 2 days)

Mobo is currently a Asus P5E. Will be swapped out with the Asus Striker with the gpu. needed for the SLI.

Anyway enough boring you guys with specs! hope i can get along with all you guys here, and have a bit of fun

Cheers
The Beast

Thanks guys. the luck was of use. not alot of hiccups in the mobo swap besides a bit of spilled coolant. Striker doesnt overclock quads for s*** cant even get 3.2gig out of it, sad.

A lot of people seem to join from Perth these days. I have yet to visit, although I plan to as I have a few friends that stay there.
