Fled OCN like everyone else because it's pretty dead. Well that and my display name was gendered and I figured out I'm a trans lesbian. These days I do nutty stuff like OCing ram by 50%, modding the snot out of my gear to make it run faster, and snuggling my girlfriends.

Most of my hardware is bodged together one way or another, ex: mobo on Wrath is using a laptop CPU heatsink for the chipset because the fan annoyed me.

I was trying to figure out what happened to OCN. Ended up being on r/Overclocking discord for a while, got tired of that, and focused on the fandom and scrambling up the career ladder for a while instead.

Welcome.  It died because I left.  :lachen:

And yeah, you'll find that's EXACTLY why most of us are here.  Got tired of reddit tier content, so instead we'll just make our own!  :wheee:

A lot of things happened to OCN... Not going into all that lol 

 

Part of it is just that internet forums in general are less popular than they were a decade ago. A lot of people switched to things like Reddit and discord. 

 

Which we do have a discord server as well. 

 

As Pio pointed out a lot of us got tired of low effort content so we came here.

Given that my OC is canonically 3 quarters of a ton of combat cybernetics, 7.5' tall, and has 6 arms, it's going to be one hell of a fight.

Welcome!

 

I also fled OCN in the last year and haven’t looked back.

 

I was there for maybe 10 years…ish but would be off and on. In fact when I was on hiatus from forums (3-4 years) and then went back to OCN in ~2018, the first people to help me get back into PC hardware were the same individuals that are now here. Speaks volumes eh?

 

ExtremeHW is the only forum I use because there is a good community driven by passionate members and I also find the more you put in, the more you get out of it.
