    This weekend, 19th - 21st August 2011, ASUS Australia invited some of the top overclockers in Australia for an epic session of pushing hardware to the limit. We've rented a house in Adelaide, booked our plane tickets, ordered the Liquid Nitrogen and are beginning to prep our hardware. Rest assured, many warranties will be invalid :D



    Several overclockers from Overclockers Australia are coming from all around Australia to attend this event, these guys are no strangers to Liquid Nitrogen;

    We have a bunch of hardware that's begging to be put under the cold including;

    Are you selling tickets or in need of a one-armed broken down LiN2 pourer?

    what hardwares up first, and what benchmarks are you guys aiming for?

    given i have a lot of similar hardware ill be watching closely ;)
    just had another 2600k turn up today too, i will only be testing it out on water for now though (ln2 supplies over this way are thin). given the last few chips ive had it will probably be enough to max it out on water anyway..

    Hey everyone, I'll be the one updating you guys during this event. Everyone's going to be busy playing with hardware & LN2 :)

    Everyone's here, booj, fester, pro, sniperoz :)

    Currently, all we're doing tonight is prepping the hardware, and testing the 2500K/2600K CPUs to see what they can boot at. (I think Fester killed SniperOz' chip already!)

    Here's how we prepare the MATRIX580:

    Painting the MATRIX580 with dielectric paste to stop moisture forming.

    Finished!

    Unpacking the gear we will use in the next few days.

    SniperOz picking Fester's brain.

    I'll keep updating sporadically throughout the weekend. If you have any questions, let me know ;)

    Using Flares at the moment to test our CPUs, looks like SniperOz got a pretty nice one.

    No internal competitions, just about having fun :)

    :D ~ thanks for your offer, haah

    We'll be putting up the livestream tonight, so you can come then. We're not livestreaming yet, as we have limited bandwidth on our 3G stick :(

    At the moment, we have 2 rigs running in our house;

    1. Uncle Fester + pro: Testing a MATRIX580 under LN2, seeing what it can do under cold. Making progress w/ 3DMark03

    2. Booj + SniperOz nearly ready to rock and roll. 2600K + 580 DirectCU II.

    It's interesting that your using Flares of all things. I thought those bad boys were optimized for AMD platforms. Love to see some memory results from them, GL Team and go break them records :)
