I'm thinking 3dmark is my best bet although only some of my cards are water capable currently
Try them and find out!

I've got a few cards here but nothing that'll get insane points, doesn't mean I'm not gonna try anyway

This might be a chance to try some the 775 gear i have sitting here now. Just have to set up dam OS's for them though.

Thats right, 775 socket stuff should be a fun time filler

Ahh, this looks like fun... Found some places to grab some points and have some cards coming in to overclock and bench! Should be a good couple of weeks.

Here is a good example of 39 points to be had with old hardware and ambient cooling

Talk to Newlife, he gets sub ambient with his little ice bucket + magic crystals.

And mounting, well elastic bands seem to do pretty good.

True. Would achieve that with an AIO in a bucket of ice i'd imagine
