Hey fellas!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Greetings from the East Coast! It feels great to finally join this community. Man, I've been lurking around here for the longest time, probably spent more time on this site than I should. I read it @ school, @ work, @ red lights, JUST GOTTA HAVE IT ZOMG!! . On behalf of countless other lurkers, I wanna thank OCN for the vast amount of information that you guys offer. I mean damn, it's like you pull up a search for ANYTHING, and there's either an in-depth review or a 100 page discussion with people offering a zillion different perspectives and their own experiences, which I think is so very much valuable. So Thank you OCN!

Well here's my little story. I'm pretty much a happy camper, just cruising along, minding my own business with the good ol E7200. A little OC and coupling it with a GTX 470, i've been fairly satisfied with the performance in the games that I play. But you know, when you've had a system for 3 years (a few parts in mine are 5 and 6 y/o ), there's just that ongoing ITCH to build a new rig, and I've finally got around to scratching that itch. Last week I came across a brand new EVGA 470 SC, which is exactly what I have (except mine is the normal version), on craigslist for $140 . Hell, I was so sure it was a scam, I brought along 2 buddies and took the 40min drive into the unknown. Turned out the guy was legit, and I was a happy man . Then, Micro Center brought back the $180 deal on the i5 2500k (still on sale atm along with the i7 2600k if anybody's interested). I'm telling you, it just felt like it's meant to be, there's just no stopping me from this new system lol. I snatched up whatever parts left, except for a motherboard (due to availability and me still doing my homework) and a case, which i'm just taking my time making sure it's something I like. I can't wait to post any questions I might run into in the next few days. Boy am I excited! It just feel goods to finally hit that register button. Shoulda done it a long time ago.

Anyways, enough of my late night drunken a$$ nonsense. Good luck OC'ing everybody and talk to you guys soon!

Oh boy did I write all that...
Thanks guys!

@Versa:
Hey I got an H50 as well . Are you satisfied with the temp @4.7 for 24/7? I don't plan to run mine past 4.5, do you think temp with be good with 2 38mm fans P/P air out of the case? I don't have any unrealistic expectation for this cooler. I'd be happy with a safe max during occasional gaming and some headroom for the summer.
/cheers
