Hi from the UK...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just saying my hellos, new user from the UK, work in automotive electronics, designing electronic control and measurement systems, remapping engine management, and doing some daily website and advertising work

Overclocking at home for amusement, gaming and the hell of it, currently running a Phenom II X4 965 BE on water, at 4,085Mhz @ 1.475v (its an 8hr/day use machine, and is quick enough for now), MSI 480 GTX with EK block, though still at stock speeds - its a dual loop, separated pumps & reservoirs, all built into an old Antec SX1240 server tower, that I customised and painted up to suit.

Over the next few months I'm on the upgrade path, and currently torn between waiting for Bulldozer (I'm an AMD man) or biting the bullet with the clearly excellent Sandy bridge i7-2600K...

Best wishes to you all

Hello Waffle

Dug out a couple of pics of the ol' bird, not a very showy build thats for sure, and remember the case started life as a gloss white server chassis from the mid 90's (only just ATX to be fair) - still to this day can't find a case I'm really happy with... Anyways, its a WIP as always, when I do either Bulldozer or i7 I'll have a rethink on the wirey/watery mess inside!

That case is huge!

It's not about how it looks, it's about how it goes, , mines currentley in an open test bench, and is, quite frankly, a mess. Looking forward to the cable managment of a case,

Pop in the British Overclockers Club and say Hi, we are a friendly bunch.

Hi Cee - thanks for the welcome

The case is a wee-beast, it must be said. But it meant I could fit the rads and drivebay pump/reservoirs in easily, they are double-thickness rad cores, so I wanted a sturdy case, and this old bad boy is 2mm steel! It paid off too, as my running temps are insanely low - a large volume of air and steel to heat up!

The case cost me £20 - so it doesn't owe me much! And I still can't find a modern one that I like - I like your open system though - its nicely hardcore having all the hardware just "there" on an open stand. Hmm... (Skeleton chassis...)

Will drop into that thread and say hello, I need to add my second box too, though its only an old E4700, but it is rather ...ORANGE!
