Alright, I'm here, NOW the party can start!!! =)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

I've found so many answers to my OC questions here, I finally decided to sign up... =) Keep up the great work!!

The OC bug hit me about 10 years ago, I clocked up my old Pentium MMX 200 (using jumper settings - lol what are those?) to a roaring 250 Mhz to play Win95 and DOS games blazing fast. And that hooked me good. My next rig was a T-Bird 1333 what couldn't OC to save it's soul, and then 3 years ago I finally went K8 Dual Core with an Athlon64 X2 4200+, but they put it on a crap ECS board that wouldn't post at even 201mhz core clock =P~

Then last year I built my current rig, in hopes of unlocking to X4. Unfortunately, It does not unlock stable on my M4N78 Pro. I haven't had much inclination to OC it because it shreds anything I play at stock speed. For example Red Faction: Guerilla and Oblivion GOTY both play at a solid 48-50 FPS @ 1080p. Did I mention (save for 2x AA/2x AF) thats on MAX settings?

Anyways, I hope I'll be able to help and contribute, and Thanks for making this place what it is!!!
