Overklokk sets a new 3DMark 03 record: 86,198 points

| Posted: Dec 6, 2006 9:22 pm

Following their success at this year's DreamHack event, Kinc & crotale have another challenge which lies ahead now that Overklokk over at the XtremeSystems Forums has just managed to pull a new 3DMark03 world record of 86,198 points. This was made possible with extreme cascade cooling on a pair of 8800GTX GPUs and Core 2 Extreme CPU.

 

For full details on his achievement head over to Nordic Hardware or the XtremeSystems forums.

 



We spent many hours overclocking during DreamHack and consumed quite a few liters of liquid nitrogen in the meantime. Parallel to our benching Overklokk has set up his cascades and started overclocking. A compressor cascade per card at -80°C and a dual compressor cascade on the processor at -95°C is the least to say an impressive setup. This made it possible for Overklokk to reach 86,198 points in 3DMark 03. The key to the score was that he managed to reach 946MHz on the cores for his XFX 8800 GTX. The processor was running at relatively low 4602MHz, which leaves room for improvements.
