and here i am.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've had the computer listed in the spec-sig since christmas (a long-awaited present for myself) and it's performing admirably. but there needs to be, i don't know .. something a little more.

overclocking was one of the things that i had initially planned on doing, but not for another couple of years. but the more i sit and do things on this computer, i'm always wanting that little extra.
- that 1/4 second increase in boot
- a hair faster i/o
- 5 (or 30; i'm not picky) more frames jammed into a second
- program loads so fast, the main window is up before the splash screeen.

i'm getting great reponse on the stock system, but i came here because i know this is where the answers live.

it's time -- i want more, and i want it faster than yesterday (after the research, reading, and stock benchmarks of course). i'm looking forward to getting as much as i can out of my system, while sharing and learning along the way.

see y'all 'round the horn!
- tasker.

raid the ssd, overclcok the 1090t more? better ram timings, (amd prefers timings over speed) OC gfx cards, maybe go W/C loop, with cards cooled, and get over 4 jiggahurts on cpu, and sweet clocks on gt460's

i'd read alot about raiding SSDs, and how well they perform, but i've only got the one, and a one disk raid, is well, just a disk. i use it as the main system drive and the raid5 for media storage and i'm really liking the way it's setup. perhaps i'll learn stuff here to make it better.

the lanboy's got water-cooling grommets in the back, so that's an option, but i want to stick with air for the time being -- limited by desk space. though i'm not against modding the desk to make some stuff happen, but that'll be something i'll do only if needed.

as for everything else, that's why i'm here. . )

Are those the hawk/talon 460s? Those sometimes perform close to 480s when overclocked to 1GHZ. To start off, download MSI Afterburner.
