    PSYCHOLOGY QUESTION

    Can anyone explain to me why I spend tons of time, $ 180 on a kt-7 raid, $ 90 on a duron $ 125 on a peltier kit, $ 50 on a second power supply, $ 30 on fans, $ 20 on artic silver, fried my duron, screwed up my k-6-III to end up with a K6-266 ?

    Why dindn't I just buy a 1ghz t-bird (less money, more performance), stick in in there and be happy ?

    Why ?

    Because you believed in yourself - and that is a good thing. Self-confidence and courage(!) are useful personality traits for overclockers

    Too bad about your Duron though

    Just add another $ 300.00 to get a new Thunderbird... you haven't tried that yet have you?

    Because, juz like the rest of us, you find that pulling one over on "the man" particularily appealing.

    Good one... I've shorted my cpu and/or slotket a couple of times and also shorted my geforce and still don't give up... just ordered a 750 to push it above 900Mhz or whatever...
    It's when you give up you loose, but when you make it.... stuff it your coworkers face or schoolmates that you're one step above them where ever you go...
    I just love to say "and you have pushed your computer how much??"...

    But i also love wine... pretty drunk right now...
