LOOKY I put in OC thread since it is about OCing... I just didn't think I came off that bad...there is a user who has just seemed to registered and trying to take me down a peg with his only posts (from post count) :slap::laugh: but I got beer in me and couldn't feel better.

what do you think? :confused: never seen anyone just use all their posts to attack something they don't seem to understand (Extreme Overclocking) :rolleyes::shadedshu

Guy's a tool. Guess he feels that his life goal is to do nothing other than crap over ppl's threads with useless BS cause he probably doesnt even know how to do it let along understand it. Hope he feels good about himself.

I won't attack back... I bigger man ;) ... but isn't this kinda thing reserved for ]H[ LOL... I don't think there may be quite the understanding about what extreme overclocking is and the purpose of doing it, and how one does it...

Well, it takes some big cojones to run that kind of setup. It may not be a daily driver but is certainly takes some skill and modding to put something like that together. :respect:

Then, again, some people may find it hard to understand that making the hardware go fast is a hobby. Sometimes the most interesting game is actually the hardware :)

he has since applogized. I for one commend the work and realize what it takes mentally, and monetarily to accomplish said feat.

Dont take it too hard, people just tend to berate what they dont understand!

@ Ghost...those were my examples being trown back at me!

He thinks the reason people are into racing and cars is for the money and girls. I'd like to see an F1 driver who answers that in an interview.
I think my answer would be the same - I likes to go fast :laugh:

I just wanted to sound off here because i wasn't sure how I come off here doing not the normal stuff

and Heavy - your case is VERY NICE :D

I couldn't agree more with sneeky's second comment, plus from what I remember reading (all of 5 mins ago, and I can't remember much :p how's that for bad short term memory? :laugh:) you didn't say anything negative at all to him, just explained yourself.
