Too much time and money in theyr hands
I got my 980x to 5.2ghz, but it took, 1.45v and wasnt worth holding it passed start up. I don't think its a record, but as per your statement above, completely impractical? The everyday person isnt an "enthusiat" either.
There are about 7 reasons why I wouldn't create a super cooled freezer. It rhymes with sublimation and evaporation....
That voltage certainly would be.
I meant 1.45. I'll edit that before I get a hoard of trolls under my bridge.
"Graphics card overclocking record broken -- rig looks like a sci-fi movie set"
Wrong. Sci-fi movies have chicks.
I don't understand why some comments arguing like "very unpractical", "what's the point for overclocking it", "why using LN2 not other" etc etc IMHO please don't give comment if you're utterly clueless, those comments sounds stupid to me, even I'm a full-pledged-noob. I respect they who give comments who asking in order to learn/expand their knowledge or wants to know deeper about overclocking
If you ask why using LN2, alright how about use liquid oxygen? everything Boom the moment you pour it
If you ask why don't put it to extremely cooled environment? Answer: can your phone still running properly after you put it in the freezer for an hour? it's still warmer than LN2 that reach -200C.. we just only need to cool some specific parts..
And the point or goal is???
Guests gonna guest, by posting this you are kind of being hypocritical. I post because Techspot allows comments, my comments may not always be well thought out, I'd admit that. At least I comment about the article most of the time.
Its still cool just ln2 cool. Be nice to actualy see them playing Crysis on full with 8x AA. Also they have four GPu cards. My Vood002 3000 overclocked on air, no special; voltage, to 50% above specified so in reality THAT was a far better rig. No, Really!
That's amazing. And beautiful.
Seriously guys? All you can do is moan about "how pointless" it is?
You're *****s. You're all missing the point completely.
Excellent nerd one-upsmanship. And if you pour liquid oxygen on charcoal you can get it ready to cook in 1.8 seconds. Why? Because no one's ever done it before, or even thought of it before.
Surely it would have been more sense to run the equipment at the specified clock speed, then he wouldn't have needed all the expensive & bulky cooling kit?
Too right! Some people can't leave well alone - not broke, don't mend it.
