New Here, Long Time OC'er

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not even a member for a week, since joining I've bought a Q9550 and HD 6950 to revive the system I built in November 2007. While I'm new here, I'm certainly not new to overclocking (although I'm no wiz, like many of you are). I have fond memories of overclocking my first PC that was mine alone, a Cyrix 166Mhz Pentium clone, to pin-modding the processor on my old Inspiron laptop.

I'm an audiophile, and hail from Head-fi where we're used to spending thousands of dollars on marginal improvements and things most people find arbitrary and ridiculous, so I'm sure I'll fit right in here.

Random fact: I'm a professional track and field athlete (yes there is such a thing), and a member of the Canadian national team (although I live and train in New York).
