What was your first !!!!

So you like modding, over clocking, pushing the boundary.

So what were you first ...

My First soldering and mod was a Spectrum (not the ZX lol it was a Home built home computer that you bought and had to build your self)

My first CPU over clock was a 486 dx 100 over clocked to 120 mhz which was amazing as i used a massive fan lol ...

My First GPU over clock was a Voodoo 1 which i blew up with in the first hour of owning it ..... The 2 days later i bought another one ...

My first water cooling Home built PC was a Pentium 200 0_o and a Car rad and bucket of water and a solid lump of copper lol .... Needless to say it didn't work very well.

My first Led mods were done on a Xbox.

And i have never done a full case mod (as in PC)

so what were your fist ....

The first CPU that I ever overclocked was an AMD Athlon 700MHz Slot A CPU with an MSI K7 Pro board from an Evesham computer.

My first PC build was in 2003 IIRC with an Aopen XC Cube EZ65-II Barebone kit.

First DIY gaming build was in Summer 2005 with a Venice core Athlon 64 3000+, DFI LanParty UT nF4 Ultra-D (best board I've ever owned) and 1GB of TCCD based RAM

First graphics card overclock was my Radeon 9800XT 256mb GDDR from my Dell Dimension 8300. Was around 420MHz on the core and 750MHz on the ram, with an Arctic Cooling silencer.

I've actually never carried out any case mods!

My first computer of any kind was a Sinclair ZX81. What memories. Hours of coding to lose on a keystroke. My first build was a pentium 2 266 SECC back in June 1997. I've been overclocking ever since.

my first computer was a pentium 3 that my cousin built for me. i got it when i was 6 or 7 years old which was 1999/2000. apparently it cost quite a bit, i still have the motherboard and processor some where, started it up the other day and it works!. then my dad gave me his 4year old lappy a couple of year ago which now is 6 years old.

my first lappy and comp, good memories!

Never had the need to build a pc til the K7 age, cos I was a commodore boy. Soldering wize was audio stuff mostly and microprocessors in school.

1st bunch of AMD Athlon stuff I got with the help of a m8 of mine cos he'd used a pc about 6 months longer than me - he spilt coke over it after it was built. >.<

It didn't effect it tho - what effected it was the psu was duff. The 350W or so Hiper I got after that lasted aggggeeeessss.

Can't remember at what point oc'ing came into it. I mean I know the amiga went up by something like 12mhz thanks to some weird mod thing, sheesh.

I know OC3D egged me on a bit mind. Used to be more interested in programming and decent OSes b4 I got a pc.

My first system build was a Q6600 based system.

My first CPU overclock was a Q6600

My first GPU overclock was an 8800GTS G92

My first watercooling was using most of the same components from my first build (CPU, motherboard, ram, etc etc).

First overclock was my AMD Athlon 2400+ which I pushed to 2.8GHz (Found OC3D by doing it )

First GPU Geforce Ti 4200 something like that
