How Many Of You Dont Oc Cuz Your Poor?


Recommended Posts

This is kinda just a funny question I thought i'd ask, but somewhat true i think too, How many of yall are kinda weary about ocing, because you cant afford to buy another vid card or whatever, if you burn it? :bah:

Nah, I don't OC not because I'm poor, but rather because I'm lazy.

 

1) no patience to take the time to find a stable oc

2) been too lazy to get the watercooling I've been meaning to get for months now

Not actually short of money, but with a baby on the way it is difficult to justify spending on my PC, HOWEVER I still O/c, but only to a point, for instance when I got my 6600gt I browsed to see what other people had acheived with it and then chose a point halfway between stock and THAT figure and aimed at that as my max o/c, sort of reassures my that I'm still well within my cards capabilities but I am still geting extra performance, look at my sig, most of that kit would go an extra 10% but I don't want to run the risks at the moment.

Just the opposite for me. I OC cuz I am poor and can't afford better chips and GPU's. My 2500 runs like a 3200 and when the price comes down enough I will get a 3200 that hopefully will give me 4000 speed.
