    Default No going back now!

    I've gotten interested in overclocking and looking for help.
    Never had so much money tied up in a pc before but the overclocking bug has got me!

    I might have some nice gear, but as far as knowledge about how to use it properly is why I'm here. I am definitly a very raw beginner.

    As for me, I did my time (apprenticship) as a toolmaker back in the early 70's, yes I'm an old fart at 61.
    I've been mostly involved with engineering, fluid power and specialised thin wall tube bending cnc machines.
    I play with toy aeroplanes, c/l racing and R/C pylon racing.
    Love blues music
    Have a couple of dogs and happily married for over 30 years

    My current pc is the 3rd I've done.

    Cheers John
