Using things found around the house (may or may not be true) he overclocked the ASUS GTX580's from their stock 782MHz clock speeds to a pretty insane 1099MHz using LN2 (the stuff that ripped the T1000 into little pieces in Terminator 2).

 

He got the Global #1 for 4x GPU's and the Global #1 for GTX580 in hwbot.

 

Impressive, very impressive.

 

Hasta La Vista, previous 3DMark record.
