I haven’t posted here in a while, but it’s good to see some familiar names still bouncing around.

Anyways, this should be a fun walk down memory lane:

Pentium 180 in a Compaq Desktop

[email protected], ASUS P3V4X, never could get it stable at 900MHz even after a Folder donated me an Alpha P3125

Tualatin Celeron [email protected], Iwill BD133u, Thermalright SK6+

Athlon XP 1800+ (I think)@2.2GHZ, Shuttle AN35 Ultra, SK6+ - It actually bothers me that I don't remember the details here, that Shuttle mobo was an absolute monster, insane FSB speeds

Opteron [email protected], ASRock 939DualSATA

Brisbane Athlon X2 [email protected] Daily, Biostar TForce550, Ultra 90 - Proud of this one, CPU-Z at 3.235GHz, 25th all time for this CPU, 12th on air (https://hwbot.org/submission/663815...thlon_64_x2_3600_(brisbane)_3235.68_mhz)...it was ranked near the top when I initially submitted

Phenom II X4 940 BE [email protected], GA-MA790X-UD4P,Thermalright Ultra 90 - not much of an overclocker, thermally limited probably

Ivy Bridge i7 [email protected] daily, MSI Z77A-GD65, Corsair H80i - My DD for EIGHT YEARS, I ran this thing so long my stable daily overclock actually degraded from 4.6 to 4.4

and here we are today, the reason why I started poking around OCForums again:
Alder Lake i7 12700K, ASRock Z690Pro RS, Arctic Cooling Freezer II 240mm, looks like it can do at least 5.2 across all P-cores, but starts thermal or power limit throttling down to 5.1 (motherboard only goes up to 265W power limit)

P133 MMX in a Compaq
Pentium M 1.6 in a Compaq
Core Duo in an HP
Core i5 25XX in a Thinkpad X200
Some Y7 garbage in an XPS13 2 in 1 (work)
Core i9-8950K in an XPS15 (work)
