I find over clocking to be a waste of time and money. I have done it twice both on AMDs one was on a Black so almost nothing to it and I don't push mine too much. The other was years ago was actually my first PC and it went well but I forget what I had it at maybe got it to 1.6 it was a 1.3 Athlon.

I also use to be into overclocking. That was back when I had an AMD Athlon 3000+ and an older graphics card (can't remember the name). It definitely helped out in the gaming department. I don't really think it's worth it if your not gaming.

A great overclock forum to checkout is www.overclock.net. They have tons of info on overclocking.

Not worth the headaches you will cause. Save your money and upgrade. I think the last time I overclocked something was like a pentium 150 to a 180 Tried overclocking the original monster video card as well but got artifacts. It's just another way to 'bubba' something imho

I agree with usacvlr. I mean it was fun when I was younger to overclock my own system but I wouldn't do it for a customer. Beside I make more off of upgrades.

I wouldn't overclock for a customer, but some people love overclocking. You can overclock and get some awesome gaming results.

I don't think the OP is asking why do you overclock or if overclocking is bad. He just wants to know if there are any overclockers on this forum.

Well, since the multi core CPU's are so common, I don't overclock as much as I used to. My main computer has an Intel Q6600 with a little overclock. Depending on the application, I have had pretty good luck overclocking some Nvidia 8800GT cards.

I like a properly cooled and overclocked computer. Just seems much more responsive. Of course I would not sell an overclocked box. It is a fun little hobby.
