Shawn Knight Review Contest

One mighty Knight over at OverClock Intelligence Agency - OCIA.net for short,had an extension to this tech site by way of a blog and he is offering a lucky reader $25 for reviewing his blog.

I am of course referring to Shawn Knight, who at 24 years of age, is the CEO of OCIA.net(the site name never fails to connect my thoughts to CIA!), who plan on overclocking the world, one PC at a time! That's a herculean task, no less, even for a young knight, i must say.

As this is a review of his blog, I will try to limit my writing about OCIA.net and focus this review on Shawn-Knight.net instead. Shawn started this blog to reveal a slice of his daily life as a tech site owner. It is also a place to for him to showcase some of his photography works(amateur by his own standards), to network / meet new people, post random thoughts and generally just have a good time.

By his own account, Shawn had much experience and had learnt many lessons about Adsense ads in his hardware review site, which he readily shares in his ad-free blog. A most refreshing and rare finds, considering millions of blogs out there trying to "make money online" by slapping multiple ads all over the blog!

Photography posts featured highly on his blog, I sure had a good time, enjoying his many photo postings on "Photo-A-Day" and "Daily Ownage" - check out the Nemo sushi. Besides that, Shawn also shares photography tips and some how-to's tutorial in "Photography", and they do not appear amateurish at all. If photography is not your thing, there's always those hardware reviews to keep you wanting more!

Please forgive my lack of knowledge and savvy.... but we don't learn unless we ask questions, right?

Overclocking is the process by which you push a computer component to run faster than it was designed to.

For example, I have the processor in my test system. It runs at 2.4 GHz stock ( 2,400 MHz )... I currently have it running at 3.5 GHz ( 3,500 MHz ) - a full 1,100 MHz faster than its default speed, all by manipulating options and settings in the BIOS of the computer.
