jim0615's PC Profile

I have been involved since i was in elemetry school. First computer build was with a 5K budget and it still runs now about 10years later!!! I have overclocked a 486DX, for those who don't know the DX part is actually important, from 33mhz to 40mhz. It wasnt much but the FSB was 1:1 with the proccessor at the time.

And yes i know my website has nothing on it yet it will soon.
