I never found overclocking to be joyful or hard, I do find getting 5.3GHz on water and benching it enjoyable however.
I just remembered my DV6t which has a Core i7 2630QM comes this week
Guess my PC is going to go into the living room!
I guess you've been getting golden processors? Overclocking isn't joyful!? Maybe I enjoy it because I used mostly DFI boards
My first processor ever was an Athlon XP 1600+ Thoroughbred overclocked it to 2.4Ghz on a DFI NF2 Ultra-B
Second Processor: Athlon 64 3200+ Socket 754 Venice (terrible overclocker) Got it to 2.5Ghz on a DFI NF3 250GB
Third Processor: Phenom II 940 3.72Ghz on a DFI 790FX-B M2RSH
Now I'm using x58 and I love it! The Athlon XP 1600+ was probably the easiest processor I've ever overclocked.
