Thanks for the word fellas.
I really miss the golden age of computing (around 90s), Where Overclocking was limited to Pure Geeks. It was physically involving. You had to swap out a few resistances (VR zone /Guru 3D guides?) or mess with jumpers. Then you'd flash the Firmware/ BIOS of a higher end card to make everything work well (Nibitor/ NVflash?). Who can forget the joys for Turning a Plane jane Nvidia 6800 AGP into 6800GT or 6800 Ultra by unlocking extra pipelines/Vertex shaders?
OC is not the same today, Where anyone can OC by setting a few ticks in Software/Driver. Without understanding the true purpose of how a machine works.
I used AMD X2 3800 manchester for good 7 years before the CPU & Board kicked the bucket. The graphics card was 9800GT. Its kid brother, AMD X2 3600+ is still working now- TODAY. I've shifted it to Data entry duty on my office. I am still using the same 80GB Seagate HDD.
These old workhorses Had the quality & reliability which is unheard of today.
Even I have an IBM laptop from 2003 which works flawlessly till now. Today's hardware quality has dropped too much. It doesn't last long because it's not designed to last long.
