Hey there! The name is Brett, mostly seen as FoX_AaZzA on things like steam or battlelog, w4rp1e is a new name I've been using.
Anyhow, the most you need to know about me is that I live in Australia (any aussie member here?) and I'm very new to the OC area of PC's.
I used to OC an older dual core, but that was just fiddling with the settings in the bios until it stopped working, then backing them off just enough haha.
I've built all my PC's to date, and most of my mates.
Heres the specs on my current PC:
Intel i7 2600k w/ Corsair H80
8 GB Corsair Vengeance
Palit GTX 590
WD Caviar Black 1TB
(some other random 750gb HDD with my games on it too)
Silver Stone Strider Plus 1000W
Thermaltake V9 Black X
The reason I mentioned I live in AUS is because of the heat, during this summer the standard cooler for the i7 just didn't cut it and it was reaching well into the 80 degrees area, my brothers was going into the 90's!
We both bought these H80 coolers and not only did it make a huge difference to the load temps of the CPU, but a big difference to the heat output on the PC and the internal case temps too!
The H80's were both setup to blow the air out the back of the PC's, while the front fans bring the cool air in past the HDD's
Anyways, can't wait to get stuck into the juicy juicy info that's sprawled all over the site!
