    Does anyone here do overclocking, or even heard of it?

    I do!

    I've done it before, but not to the extreme like some people do.

    Lately I just prefer leaving things stock and not risking frying anything expensive. :)

    I've heard of it, but somewhat wary of it. At this moment in time, I don't have the resources to buy new components if I fuck something up. Hell, my resources are so low, my gaming rig uses a damned 2.5 GHz Intel Celeron processor and 612 MB of DDR RAM.

    Maybe when I start earning more than £6.25 an hour (i.e., when I finally get my ass into the RAF), I'll look into it. But it's more likely I'll just buy a high-end system and stick with that until I need to upgrade.

    *happy dance* Woot. people who've heard of it! Now i wont get blank stares.

    I just got a new system. Athlon64 X2 4000+ (2.1ghz) Shoved it to 2.6ghz. If you wanna try it, recommend the Asus boards. (got a Asus M3A)

    ok, enough geekiness for now.

    I've heard of it and thought about doing it on my old computer, but it wouldn't have given enough of a boost to really matter IMO.

    Well, if you get some liquid nitrogen cooling, you can really hike the speeds x.x

    Fuck, that's got to be expensive. Makes it colder than a welsh miner's arse crack, though.

    It's somewhat colder than a witch's teat.
