You might be an Overclocker...

You know you are an overclocker: 1) If the screws holding your case together have been stripped out. 2) If your case has no cover. 3) If you need replacement jumpers. 4) If you have more than two hard drives. 5) If there is a fire extinguisher beside your PC (take note Brendan and Darren). 6) If your rent was ever late so you could pre-order a 3DFX card. 7) If you have rhtermal grease under your fingernails. 8) If the word "Anand" has become part of your vocabulary. 9) If you buy all the components to build a new computer and you start thinking about upgrading before your finish assembly. 10) If three or more of your friends or relatives are using one or more of your "old" systems. 11) If you have never done a "typical" installation of software. 12) If you've removed all of the smoke detectors in your house. 13) If you you know all the multiples of 66, 75, 83, 100, 112. 14) If you can hold your own in an argument over Intel and AMD's floating point units versus integer processing power. 15) If you give people advice on which case fans to buy. 16) If you're on a first name basis with the head of your work/universities help desk and it's because they called you. 17) If the notion of undocumented jumper settings seems perfectly natural to you. 18) If you have a "square floor fan" sitting next to your uncovered case. 19) If you have tried to manually shorten your windows startup time. 20) If your house lights dim when you power up your computer. 21) If you walked to work for a month so you could afford that new Voodoo2 card. 22) If you use the weather forecast to predict tomorrows bus/multiplier settings. 23) If your employers know you are a crank but this doesn't worry them as long as you turn up to fix things. 24) If your wife/partner has to close the door to the "computer room" when guests come over. 25) If your monthly computer upgrade budget is greater than your mortgage payments. 26) If you bought Quake 2 just to run the timedemo. 27) If you know the Quake 2 fps of your current setup and how it changes with at least two other pieces of hardware not currently in your computer. 28) Every time you upgrade your system, you build an entire new system around the old part(s).
