Hey there.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been visiting this place as a guest for some time now, looking at all of the various builds that people have done. I decided that instead of just lurking, I'd take the time to join and perhaps get to know some of the people here, and learn more about overclocking and water cooling, since I eventually would like to go the route of water cooling a system.

To share a little about myself:
I'm a student studying Mechanical Engineering at a small university called Michigan Technological University. It's located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and for those that aren't familiar with the area, it's known for incredibly beauty and harsh winters. We average just a hair over 200 inches of snow per season, and have been known to still be getting some snowfall as late as May. It's pretty awesome.

I hate how most cars in America do not come with a standard transmission anymore, I hate not having a clutch, even if a DCT still offers you all of the control... it just isn't the same.

So yeah, just a couple things there. Obviously there's more, but I feel like I'm rambling. To anyone that replies to the thread... tell me a quick little something about yourself as well, if you don't mind.
