Almost 40,000 in 3DMark03 - On air!

| Posted: Dec 13, 2005 1:55 am

Now this is quite an accomplishment even for the most extreme overclockers throughout the lands. Overclocking guru "Kinc" of Nordic Hardware has almost managed to hurdle the 40,000 3DMark barrier on Futuremark's 3DMark03 benchmarking suite using an FX-57 processor and 2x512MB 7800GTXs. But what really makes this such a triumph is that the immense score was achieved using only air cooling methods!

 

 

BIG scores were also produced on 3DMark01 and 05 using the same platform and cooling.

 

All the details over at this section of Nordic Hardware folks.

 


Kinc is without a doubt Sweden's, and one of the world's, most active overclockers at the moment and besides for the fact that he is currently leading our 3Dmark05 category in the Swedish Performance Championship in supreme style Kinc has a few "side projects" planned. Among others he has put away his extreme cooling and has focused on cooling his monster system with air instead. The results were quite good and the perhaps most impressive is most likely the 3Dmark03 score.
