Don't laugh, every overclocker has gone through this phase. It's the "i killed my best cpu, can't take this anymore i quit, or well maybe not right now" phase.

I went through that phase at around the end of last year because I killed my awesome 780 classy and my Z97X-SOC Force I won in same day from totally different reasons but I ended up going AMD instead of quitting (which is about as good as doing so) and selling my average 4770k which I now regret because in Australia they are worth a lot more money then when I sold it

Well, most free online hostings for pictures are notoriously unreliable. And not only that, they sometimes even cease to exist. I lost many times many pictures on hostings like slibe.com and others, when they cease to exist...

 

And there could be even cases of deleted accounts. The ease of use is mostly guaranteed only to registred users, others are "left in the cold." Now when you upload some offensive pictures, then not only these, but your complete account get deleted. I encountered this many times myself, and I did not uploading porn on Photobucket, I did just upload pictures that seems to be highly offensive to some...

 

Currently I use PostImg.org and if/when they go under (or bann my arse), most of pictures in my posts will be gone and I will have to replace them from my backups on other sites, like flickr, photobucket, imgur... For example imageshack.us get completely useless over time, rapidshare completely disappeared (good bye to links), Mega get siezed by FBI and later replaced by mega.co.nz ... etc.

 

Links and pictures not saved on HWbot itself are not meant to stay. This is not HWbot fault, much less the posters fault. Just look at this thread, how empty it's start it now:

That is why. Every long thread suffer from this.

I know the problem with hosters, but in this thread I can't even see the broken links, just empty posts. That's why I was unsure if those pictures were uploaded to external hosters or if it was an internal problem.

If you post something in a forum, you should always use the upload of that forum. That way if the hoster is down nobody cares since the thread won't exist either.

Tragic fail. TBH my GF is supportive and she even tried overclocking a bit the Athlon in MSI K7TM Pro mobo, sadly the mobo is weird and it always freeze when saving the 113MHz overclock over 100MHz default, so it is flustrating. Also it react just weird, set 95MHz = freeze. Set 102, get 102. Set 104, get 104. Set 106, get 34MHz :)

The 34MHz slowdown happen up to FSB 112, on FSB 113 you get 113 - but it soon freeze, so she was flustrated and even more flustrated, when I managed to run 3 instances of new CPU-Z :) The board also like to freeze on modern CPU-Z, not just on pasting screenshot into mspaint :D

 

...

 

Yes she sometimes bitch about "too much computers" or talking about computers too much, but on other hand, she even suggested buying something like Abit NF7S mobo, so she can play with overclock too... ;)
