Very New and VERY Lost

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, name is Matt btw. So after some time I realized I come to this site often and might as well join as often as I seek answers that usually are found here.

So as the title of the thread states, I'm lost. I'm new here and not sure of the structure or where to post certain topics. And I dont want to start posting things in the wrong area and start off on the wrong foot.

So, here's my dilemma. I want to upgrade my current system. However, I'm running into a few problems. To sum them up and maybe have someone help out as to where to post to get answers or help, here are the topics:

1)AMD or Intel (I've been an AMD fan since my first build 6 yrs ago, so its tough)
2)Water cooling - what I need to look for and/or learn before buying
-Things I should or need to consider (what works great vs not so great)

Hey Matt, welcome to OCN and to answer your questions:

1) Try General Processor Discussions board for either Intel and/or AMD discussion.
2) And of course, we have a Water Cooling section for all your water cooling needs.

Hope that helps.

Welcome! Just search the specific areas of this forum to find the information you're looking for.

I did a lot of research before I bought any of my water cooling components.

I'm glad you asked were to post. Everyone else who is unsure seems to just try something at random .

We need more new users like you .
