"We're going to bring that [CPU Multiplier] up to 11, because it's one louder"...

hahaha nice Spinal Tap reference..

Sad to hear about Dave leaving, aside from being stuck in the studio running tens of thousands of miles of wires, he seemed to have a lot of great ideas for projects for the show.

Default there's the other way to.

Some people will underclock a machine so it will run cooler and use less juice. Some cpu's have a special section in them to record if the cpu has been overclocked. That way if there is a warranty issue the overclocker will have have to come clean. Good show by the way.

We want to see a pic of the little one!

Unhappy Dave

Like alot of people, I'm sad to see Dave go. He showed us a lot of cool things and I would've loved to see what more he could've done with the Versa Lazer. Also Like a lot of people, I don't think Rev3 would be what it is today without Dave.

You will be missed man.

Default OC = good times

I have really enjoyed watching systm and it will not be the same with out mr. randolf. Best of luck!

I OC'd my Athlon 64 4200+ from it's stock clock speed of 2.21 GHz to 2.71 GHz. I'm using the stock AMD heatsink & fan, but I added an 80MM fan to the case to help with cooling and air flow (my first case mod!). I did have to increase the voltage to the CPU and RAM. Once all of the voltage issues were worked out my PC has been rock steady.

The biggest improvement I've seen from my OC is in encoding video files. What used to take 15 minutes now takes me 10. I love the added performance the OC has given me, and I have to admit I feel pretty cool about having done it. I plan on doing more overclocking with my next system build.

Maybe on a future episode of systm they could show how to install a water cooling sytem in a PC (show hint).

Anybody else notice that DL.TV did a 3 part segment on OC'ing with Lloyd Case recently? coincidence....hmmmmm

Actually, it is. I had no idea Loyd did an overclocking show on DL.TV. Frankly, I would have loved having him w/ Dave and I doing this, 'cause Loyd's the best hardware guy I've ever met. Here are links to his viddies:
