Nice job guys. You're pretty dedicated overclockers if you're fooling around with liquid nitrogen! Makes even a good watercooled rig seem pretty tame in comparison.

So what kind of reactions did you get from the passers by?

yeah had a very positive crowd rection, talked to alot of young and old people that wanted to get into overclocking,

whats funny is that the system that got the most attention was a e6850 water cooled system with an 8800GTS that was looping 3dmark at one end,

while at one end a 6700 was creeping past 5.6ghz and we had a 3d setup in the middle approaching 20000 marks 3dmark06 with a single card,

i guess people can relate to water cooling as its something they can do at home, while ln2 and dry ice probably isnt!

Had so much fun at the event, and like most of us i've had little chance to jump online let alone post any results. Spending this week back in Adelaide with the family so not much time for computers.
But here you go, one of our proudest moments from the weekend:

Team.AU
20,040 3DMark'06 Single Card

Pro, SLi_dog, T_M

QX6850 retail 0724 - k|ngp|n's F1
XFX 8800 Ultra retail (vGPU/vMem - no OVP mod) - kayl's semi-solid
Gigabyte X38T-DQ6 (no mods!)
Team Xtreem DDR3 (cant remember specs sorry)
CoolerMaster 1000W
Western Digital Raptor

PS - whoever said the F1 pot hold down system wouldnt ice up must be joking!

Load temps on both pots were amazing, the F1 holding the CPU at about -70C base and kayl great GPU tube a respectable -62C!
We were limited only by vid OVP, but 940MHz is crazy for DICE

There was some good adrenalin pumping when we were pushing for that 20k, and im sure the same was going on at the other end of the table for the SuperPI 9s run

Following the Atomic Live event on Saturday, the team made our way in a van up to Moloko's garage for a Sunday of beers and Yorkfield fun and games :hehe:

After much buggering around with the buggy chip and various configurations of cooling, for 3DMark06 testing we settled on DICE for both CPU and GPU.
We didnt tweak very much at all, as we were running out of time and people were getting restless.

Team.AU
20,211 3DMark'06 Single Card

#2 in hwbot rankings :up:

QX9650 ES - Kayl Frozen Cascade
XFX 8800 Ultra retail (vGPU/vMem - no OVP mod) - kayl's semi-solid
Gigabyte X38T-DQ6 (no volt mods! only vcore read and a very dodgy cap replacement after i broke one off the board)
Cellshock DDR3 (cant remember specs sorry)
CoolerMaster 1000W
Western Digital Raptor

We were limited only by vid OVP and a buggy CPU/mobo combi, but 940MHz is crazy for DICE

Oops, seems i made a mistake about the cooling we used for the Yorkfield in the 20,211 score above.
Went back thru my photos and found this video of the run:



I've editted my post above to read Kayl Frozen Cascade as the CPU cooler.

Got a nasty bite the other morning from some LN2 under the toe in bare feet.
Nothing damaging though
