First timer

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello, this is my first computer build and my first time in a forum like this. I'm interested in trading information about my build and specs with some more technically savvy members. I just overclocked my system today and it seems pretty stable. I've been running Prime 95 for an hour and a half now on blend.
Where can I go to load my specs and maybe have someone look at them to make sure everything is copesetic?

Nice to meet you all.

Welcome! System specs can be added under user cp on the top menu bar and then on the next page go to add/edit system in left column. To validate a OC, use cpuz and take screenshot of prime window with time ran data visible along with the CPU window and memory window in cpuz, then post that to confirm OC with other forum members

I honestly don't know how to take a screenshot? And how do I get a timestamp in Prime 95?

Search for "Snipping tool" in Windows search.

Edit: That's how I do it anyway.
