G'day mates!

New to modding, and overclocking, but NOT to building my own rig.

Live in Australia (NOT Austria), and have recently built myself a beast of a system. Not looking to overclock yet, but am thinking of getting into full blown water cooling, and then modding down the track.

For those that are curious, my latest rig (built only 2 weeks ago ) is: Rampage IV Extreme, Thermaltake Overseer RX-1, H100i, Intel 3770K, MSI GTX680, 2x Samsung 128GB SSDs, 1 Seagate 2TB Mech. drive, Asus Optical drive (Sata 3), 32 Gig RAM (Dominator), Win 7 64bit. The *only* mod I did was to make the H100i fit in the case with the RAM (removed the heat spreader on the RAM).

Please bear with me, particularly when it comes to watercooling questions, because I DO have a passion for it, but as I said earlier; i've never really done it before, and I tend to try and plan all things out BEFORE I purchase anything...

Hey everybody!

Hey there everyone!

I would like to start off by saying that I've been watching all of Toms videos for awhile now, and I have to say he's one of my favorite tech youtubers. Once I heard about this forum I couldn't help but to join! You guys seem like a great community, and you stand out among the seas of others. ( Some communities are just plain gray )

I'm from Canada, (Yes, call me a Canuck if you wish), and I've been into DIY PC's for as long as I can remember. When I was in 2nd or third grade I was installing operating systems and playing around in the BIOS of my family computer! (Under the watchful eye of my father of course )

My experience has since far passed that of my mentor, my father, and I have turned into the family IT guy despite my age. I'm not much of a modder, but that's mostly because I'm still in school and I have barely enough time, or money to do much with my computer, nor the tools to mod with. I do however know more than anybody else in my life about actually building systems, but I know there is plenty of room for improvement, and there always will be.

I have spent quite a bit of time contributing to the learning of my friend though. He had some cash, and his old laptop just wasn't doing it for him anymore. Being the only techy he knew, he asked me about it, and well, I ended up making him a rig. We talked about it for awhile and we built it the way he wanted it. Ever since, he is fairly educated in PC's but, he is still learning.

My computer is just an old Dell inspiron 531 from 2007 that I have upgraded. The actual computer I got from my friend I built the rig for for free, because it was "broken" and he was using it as a foot rest. I plugged a new video card in, and it worked great. I've been slowly upgrading it ever since. Having basically no money, it's still nothing to stop laughing at, but it is what it is.

Anyway, you all seem like a great community! I can't wait to get in on some of the conversations on this awesome forum. (After my finals that is)

I just make this quick:

Since I needed to upgrade my rig last year, my interest for pc and its components increased. Thus looking at reviews, reading about future new stuff for PC ++. Also, I am a hardcore gamer. Playing most, if not all genres out there.

I am 22 years old, soon 23(next month), I absolutely love death metal, good tv and movies with good story. The Walking Dead to mention one. Also, I looove science. So, yeah, that's about it. Hi everyone!
