Weekly Giveaway: Win an Antec Case, PSU and Cooler (Global Entry!)

Kinc and crotale sets a new 3DMark 2001 world record with 89,120 points

Both overclocking gurus Kinc and crotale of Nordic Hardware are up to their usual antics, pushing out a new world record 3DMark2001 run of 89,120 points with a Core2Extreme @ 5050MHz (phwoar!) and X1950/1900 crossfire combo.

 

Details here.

 


Even if the weekend is still young our OC gurus Robert 'crotale' Kihlberg and Marcus 'Kinc' Hultin have already managed to score a new world record. With 3DMark 2001 they've managed to reach 89,120 points. It might be worth mentioning that the system still needs some tweaking for optimal performance and that the CPU is still our tired ol' X6800. However, now they've managed to get above 5GHz at least, while they also used a X1950/X1900 combo, waiting for another X1950 card without too bad coldbugs. Unfortunately, it's still impossible to raise the memory frequency of the X1950 very much, but that shouldn't stop them from reaching 90,000 later on.
