Old school *daily OC problems

I just posted a status update about this, so mods please and thank you for locking this down.


But does anyone else have habits that carry over from old or new school extreme daily overclocking to today?  Or if you're still clocking to high noon, what are some of your "quirks and features" to daily use?


The one and only thing that has stuck around from my single core 4 pixel pipeline 30% benchable daily driver is the ctrl-a ctrl-c every time I write a long post in a forum.  Far far to often my browser would crash when I hit submit and all of the enthusiasm would go with it.  Today I don't OC much if at all, even then it's just sliders on the safe side of things, but I still select all and copy all.  I can't even remember the last time I had a browser or entire PC lock up.


I just thought this was an interesting quirk that maybe someone else could relate to, and I don't have many followers for a status update.  (just did it)

When I got my 3900X and now 3950X, I just gave up on overclocking.   I look at these 12 and 16 cores and think 'It's already faster than God, what's 2% more gonna do?'

I don't keep anything important on C: drive, first thing I do after a clean install is turn off the page file.. I make sure there is always plenty of airflow. Smell for smoke because I did not solder my splices.. You know, just the basics 😄


I still overclock, well I run manually somewhere in its boost range 😄 


Overclocking isn't dead yet.. just look to hwbot to see..
