Dual CPU, Quad GPU System Scores A Record 79k 3DMark Score Thanks To Plenty Of Liquid Nitrogen And Skill

I have two things for overclockers scene. First, I find you guys awesome and inspiring. I haphazardly throw fans into my case and hope for the best. Not you guys. Hells no. You know the proper voltage settings and cooling techniques to max out your system. *High-five*

Second, the pic above is of a rig that just scored a record 79,364 composite 3DMark Vantage score. Modders Vince “K|ngP|n” Lucido and Illya “TiN” Tsemenko used a pair of Intel Xeon X5690 CPUs on an EVGA Classified SR-2 motherboard with Corsair Dominator GT GTX2 memory modules along with four Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 GPU cards — all with liquid nitrogen cooling pots The result was record breaking as they took the CPUs up to 5.62GHz each and overclocked the GPUs to 1,190MHz. Sure, the whole thing isn’t practical and won’t likely increase your Team Fortress 2 skills, but overclocking leads to innovation, which eventually trickles into normal systems that you and I use.
