About time! Saying "Hello!"

I always wanted to be able to discuss overclocking AMD on AMD & now we can! There are some of us willing to toss warranty aside to grab that extra mile lying inside these chips. I am one. 

Not to toot my own horn, I offer 25+ years PC building experience to this forum. 99% of it was AMD, going way back to socket A & earlier. I was always trying to make things work faster. From a cost perspective, AMD was my go-to for PC gaming the first day I got into it. Overclocking an AMD was considered a unique skill at one time. Today it still is with PBO & Curve Optimizer, but we're past dip switches.

My current rig is setup well with no issues; however, it was a long road. I check my messages a lot & I'm here to learn by helping others.

I started with the slot-A Athlons when AMD was able to reach and overtake the 1 GHz barrier.  Soon the Bartons and Thunderbirds Athlons were available and achieving 2.2 GHz was possible.  I remember those days and the steps we had to take to keep those old CPUs cool enough - even resorting to external fan support!
