Default Tones Overclock Academy II



Heyo Boys and Girls !!

Tomorrow, the men (yes, men!!) from Madshrimps are heading out to the Belgian 'most powerful computer shop) TONES to help with/ host the second edition of the Tones Overclock Academy. Just like last time, 8 enthusiasts are invited to an exclusive session with the Madshrimps 'oc experts'. In return for their undivided attention, we'll give them a crash course in overclocking, extreme overclocking and of course explain them how benchmarking works.

This time 'round, our main partner is GIGABYTE! Thanks to the efforts of the local marketing Guru Sibren, we were able to set up 3 X58A-OC platforms for the enthusiasts to play with. Fun, fun, fun!

PLANNING:

- introduction of the X58A-OC board, including an overview on the features
- crash course in X58 overclocking
- food, drinks, and more of that stuff
- have a (friendly) competition to find out who's got the biggest(*)
- introduction to extreme overclocking: insulation, dangers, benefits and so on
- extreme overclocking demonstration

SETUP:

- Intel Core i7 930, 975, 990X (OC for all chips!)
- GIGABYTE X58A-OC
- GIGABYTE G1 Assassin (need comparison to show how OC board kicks ass)
- GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6990
- GTX 580 Direct CU II
- Kingston DDR3-1600CL9 memory
- Antec High Current Gamer 750W

And of course some prizes.

PICTURES and VIDEO

Here are a few quick shots I took with my cell phone. I'm sure Leeghoofd has much better quality pictures!

Will they ask for your autographs (L)?



Will it be open to the public so they can watch?

As promised - the results.

SETUP:

- Intel Core i7 990X
- GIGABYTE X58A-OC
- 2x AMD Radeon HD 6990 (1x GIGABYTE, 1x Sapphire)
- Corsair Dominator GTX2 (thank you, Leeghoofd)
- Corsair AX1200 (again, thank you Leeghoofd)
- Samsung HDD

The CPU was clocking like expected: 6400 in 3DMarks, 6000 for 3DMark Vantage. Too bad the cards couldn't be pushed further due to me lacking the right software. Luckily, the main focus of this event was not efficiency or top scores, but just showing off a 6.4GHz 990X with liquid nitrogen.

Once again, thanks to Tones for hosting this event!

SCORES
