One 8HDA Motherboard, one 2800 64 test sample....UNLOCKED! (My first and ONLY Engineering sample!) One Hard drive....and the respect of my accountant!

P.S. only fair to mention an 8RDA+ that's having all her caps replaced and my 21" monitor that's in the shop, hopefully just for a short visit... BUT I HAVEN"T GIVEN UP ON THEM YET!!!

I lost a $9.00 Samsung floppy drive. Boo-hoo! Lots more gear went TU on me of course, I just don't want to remember the details.

Add a 40 Gb Seagate IDE HDD. A Fujitsu 40 Gb HDD that my neighbor dropped. WTG! An Enermax 420W PSU. What's next? Don't tempt fate, cloasters!

Hmm, I remember losing a 8HDA+, a couple of A64 3200's because of the board, a seagate 40Gb and a Maxtor 80Gb DM9, One stick of generic 3200, I think that was it. One 512Mb CF card went south too for no good reason.

Sprung a leak in my watercooling a week or so ago and havent had time to check where the problem is so I'm back on air for now.

Come to AOA! Learn to Overclock! A fun and inexpensive Hobby which allows you to stretch your computing dollar!

Of course as a beginner with but a few years or decades of experience one may well have to face a few setbacks when attempting the more advanced or esoteric solutions overclocking employs to gain you the best bang for your buck!...

Caution:

One may encounter such set backs when:

Changing your ram, turning on you computer, turning off your computer, opening your mail, letting your computer go into "sleep" mode or looking at your motherboard side ways!

(It's time to embrace the horror!)
