The guy that ran me out is very conservative with many business accounts and thinks that water cooling rigs leak and cause damage, his customers just want it stock .I really don't think it has anything to do with wanting to sell you a new cpu. I myself never adopted the viewpoint "new cpu or just overclock this one"? it does not work like that.When I go for a new cpu I want more than just an improvement in clock speed, there is more to a cpu than clock speed you know?
I really hope you are not talking to me? (mainly in the very last sentence)
Would be a complete smack in the face... I think that if any one needs a smack in the face and a good wake up call it would be you.
Have you ever worked in a computer shop or understand what a business is in business for?
Well I have and have experienced all the of things you are talking about, I had people come in and talk to me about over clocking and water cooling and high end coolers... my boss told me directly that if I ever try to do anything other then sell them the best thing in the store that he would fire me on the spot, if I was to help someone to over clock I would be gone. He knew that I had gaming rigs and that I knew how to over clock but he didn't want me telling his customers that.
If you can answer that then you might understand where my statement was coming from and pull your head out of the sand.
