Beginner's 6600K Overclocking Adventure

When I put Kobalt together, I did so with the express intention of overclocking. I knew nothing about it. I had no experience in it. I just knew I wanted to do it.

I bought a 6600K and a all-in-one Corsair H80i GT Hydro Series CPU cooler, and then studied all I could about it. And I guess this shows obvious lack of forethought on my end because Kobalt was supposed to end up in a Cougar QBX, a teeny tiny pouch of a case. Eventually, he got bumped up to a Corsair Carbide Spec M2, so there's a little more breathing room, which helps with cooling.

Proposed Spoiler Rules

It's the same old story every time a new highly anticipated movie or game or TV show comes out. Despite multiple warnings on Facebook and Twitter accounts and multiple unfollowed former friends, people are going to post details or tell revealing in-jokes which can be considered spoilers. Stories and experiences get ruined, egos inflate, defenses go up, and friendships end.

There are many reasons why people spoil things. It can be because some don't know what constitutes as a spoiler. Others might not have any reference of when it's okay to talk about certain important plot points. Others still don't consider it rude, or were ignorant to the fact that it is, indeed, rude. Then there are inconsiderate assholes who either just don't care or they do it purely to ruin other people's experiences because they enjoy doing so.

Maybe if we deconstruct what makes a spoiler, why people do it, and propose how get around it, maybe we can lessen situations like where we'd have to unfollow more people on Facebook.
