    The best way to be for overclocking?


    I am wondering how the people who seriously OC go about it?
    Are you all stone-cold sober; you make a plan, a diagram, and build it with germanic precision?

    Or are you more like me; You sit there and think "I know I can get a few more MHz", start drinking your whiskey and after 3 glasses you come up with a brilliant idea?

    i think OCing completely sober should be a crime

    i usually have a couple beers (let's hear it for Old Speckled Hen!) and then i'm ready to go... the thing is, i usually think of completely new ways to get my proc to work at higher mhz when i'm non-sober (not drunk, but definately not sober)... go figure

    heh... i think advanced CPU cooling is automatically coupled w/ alcohol

    I do the same Machupo, when I saw the post for alternate fluids for cooling Old Hawks Eye came to mind!

    Last summer was really hot in Vienna - was the first time I had been here in a LONG time and I was used to Scandinavian summers (~16C and rain), so 37C and sunshine was a novenlty.
    Anyways, out came the spliff, my bob marley and Goa trance CDs, 1 crate of beer, the left over of some 18year old malt whiskey - this at 10am.
    By 7pm my P75 was running at 154Mhz.

    I lived in Jönköping, and we struggled to get over 16C - we got a few days over 20C...of course 1997 was a rocking summer, but 1998 really sucked, even scotland was better

    A little wine, a little Peltier, sitting by the glow of your overloaded heatsink...

    And they say there's no romance anymore.

    Living in Norway/Finland/Sweden would be great for overclockers. In the winter the outside temperature often get down to -20, -25 degrees C. Great for watercooling

    Anyone got a cpu running at 666?

    I've got a bottle of champers waiting on Ice ready for 700Mhz . My mate got this huge tube of water which has different coloured lights and bubbles and fish for his b'day. And whilst sitting there stoned admiring it, I couldn't help thinking about its cooling prperties

    I just made a purchase based on everyone's comments....

    www.drunkoverclocking.com

    Anyone who wants, can post their pics of their systems. Send me web pages & links if you want. Give me a few days to get it up and running... but all I want is some good advice/participation.

    Anyone interested???
