I try to qualify it for the SSDB first and foremost, but with these new toys i just couldnt wait to ramp up the mhz so that went by the wayside. The first real rig i built is in the SSDB though.

When my PC performance needs to be a little higher and put off the day I need to spend money.

 

I'm a tight pig. Only joking.

 

Already spent some money getting it ready to overclock and had it running at 3.2MHz for a while but back to stock values now - no real need yet for that extra performance!

I hit "Right off the bat" because I'm a geeky son-of-a-somebody, and I'm appalled at the very mention of running something at "stock" speeds.

 

Stock. The other white meat. :shake:

 

No, seriously I may have hit right off the bat, but I run everything through a myriad of torture programs before I OD on the OC.

I voted "Give it a few months". Of course, this is the first computer that I have ever OC'd. I wanted to make certain that I had done all of my homework first. I did, and it is still working.

I'm with old geekster on this one. I have only overclocked a handfull of my various computers, but I read about how to do it, and test it all properly before I even started messing with it. I had to have read about it for at least a couple months before I began the OCing journey.

I go at it right from the start, as long as I am sure I actually installed everything properly and the PC turns on. Then it's all or nothing, baby.:)

Almost right out of the box

I look on the internet and at DIY what the could be possible with my hardware and than I OC my rig to a certain level and try to get it stable.

After a while I try to get the max out of my system.

i wish you would have let everyone see who voted so we can all kick on the butt who ever voted on the last option so hard that his/her nipples will blow up. i voted "right of the bat" because I don't like to waste time but I also make sure memory passes memtest86plus before anything.
