Guys, i have an idea, maybe ull like it or maybe it will be shot down and burn in flames.
Seeing as how many people come here in hopes to build a good computer with a tight budget, or people who are already here, or people who just want to overclock. we tell them to read the guides and they will understand it. I read the guides in fact i read 5 different guides which left me REALLY uncomfortable and scared. It wasnt until after i asked A LOT of questions that i now no the basics and some problem solving skills.
I propose that we make a test for overclocking. People read guides, read posts on overclocking. and if they themselves want to overclock, they take the test to see if they know what they are going to do and not screw something up badly.
Basically what we would do is give a series of scenarios where there is a problem ( i doubt ill even pass this test
) and they have to recognize and be able to solve the problem ( nothing way too advanced). Also we could add some basic questions like wat is the HTT, or Vcore, stuff like that.
people get their answers, PM their answers to one of the people who have the answers and then they see if they are fit to overclock. now if they dont past the test, we give them a response on what they did wrong and give a detailed explanation of how to do it right, but not in advance techno geek lingo, something they will understand.
Maybe im way over my head here, but hey, its just an idea.
