Interview with Amin_CaraGT2
Can you introduce yourself in a few words?
I’m Amin Naderi , 25 old age , from Karaj – Iran.
Since how long are you involved with overclocking?
I love computer hardware & attract them for many years since I was child.
I Started overclocking with Intel Socket 478, and worked on Nvidia VGAs (4 series AGP), and AMD Socket 939 seriously.
What kind of overclocking do you prefer, and why you use this one?
Overclocking by Air cooling, because its a lot cheaper than other ways to overclock and more fair play! (kidding!)
On air, we can do more thinking, more tweaking, and we have more time for every part of hardware.
What are you doing in your real life when you are not overclocking?
I’m working on my hardware store in Karaj.
What is your favorite brand?
What is your favorite overclocking rig?
A bunch of Mushkin memory Modules, ADA fans, an special 8800 GT , and my HP PcCooler 2116x .
What is your best overclocking souvenir?
How old is Overclocking in your country (Iran)?
In the year 2006, Hardware & Computer’s scientific magazines published some news & articles about overclocking in Iran. Somebody followed these magazines and started overclocking forums.Since then, overclocking has been popular.
What is your opinion about Iranian overclocking community and what is their problem?
In Iran, computer hardware and overclocking parts are very expensive. Most of them is very difficult to get. For extreme overclocking most of the overclockers must make their OC pots themselves, and we have also some problems like finding thermal compound etc.
Iran has a hot and warm climate. The beginners can’t run and bench on their OC rigs with simple air cooling.
Iranian overclockers have a great moral and problems cannot stop them. We have above 50 extreme overclocker on Hwbot League devided in 4 powerful teams.
What advice do you have for beginners?
Just keep working on every hardware, no matter if they are high ends and expensive! you can use a very cheap hardware for starting overclocking.
And final word?
Thanks everyone with best regards.
