* when you open the windows of your computer room in the WINTER to keep the temps down

 

* when you oc/bench your computer with it outside the house in the winter

 

* when you look out for useful modding supplies when out shopping at a hardware / plumbing / lighting / auto-parts / toy store

 

* when you set up an eBay account for selling and build up your feedback so you can start selling expensive items so you can buy more hardware cos your bank account and credit cards are all maxed out and you've been doing all your food shopping at the cheapest place in town for like half a year (yes, this is me :lol:)

When you spend so much time on your computers, that you end up never getting out, and women are out of the question; you debate whether your computers or women are better (hey, have you ever tried OCing a woman?)

Lol, some of these apply to me, and some to my older brother...

 

 

One freezing winter day, he had his window open and was sitting there without a shirt, because his rig was too OC'd.

 

 

You know you're an OCer when...

 

 

You know the x86 architecture by heart.

 

You get a temp of 100*F with a Mach II properly installed.

 

You OC everything in your house that you possibly can... *is guilty of wanting to OC his speakers, monitor, and brain).

 

You wish your brain had a registry, along with your GF's brain...

 

 

Hell, just think of the possibilities on that one:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Emotions\Mood\Bitchiness 0

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Organs\Repro... I won't go any farther on that one :).

You know you overclock too much when you have top of the line hardware and your local comp shops wont touch your system.

 

You know you overclock too much when you take your computer to a local comp shop and they refuse to touch your system because they feel they might "spill or break" your water cooling. :P

 

You know you overclock too much when you only worry about the hardware that matters.. ... . i.e 3k in the computer and a 13in crt monitor.

 

You know you overclock too much when you've met 2 other local ocers though overclockersclub.com.

 

You know you overclock too much when you changed to socket 939 for only 300 points higher in cpu arithmatic.

 

You know you overclock too much when you lose interest in your computer 20 minutes after the top benchmark score possible.

 

You know you overclock too much when you consider phase change + water cooling and still call your rig "mobile".

 

You know you overclock too much when you are judge a friend on how fast his processor is :-P

 

You know you overclock too much when your daily routine consists of

-wake up

When you can tell a major difference between a 72Hz and 75Hz refresh rate.

 

When you notice someone has used your computer because of the position of the mouse on the mousepad.

You know you are a real overclocker when you do not have your comp in a case, and if you are on the phone you can not hear over the tornados in your case.

You also know that you are real overclock when you have the best of the best and you do not pla games with it, you just bench.
