Kingpin Cooling Single GPU Competition with LN2 by Deanzo

By: Dean Smith | Editorials in Video Cards | Posted: Nov 30, 2009 9:08 am





Card preparation is KING.


With a restriction on the maximum CPU speed that can be utilised, the graphics card becomes the key component. This also opens the competition up to be more competitive.


Skills like card insulation, voltage manipulation and temperature management come into their own.


Below I've added some pictures of both my MSI 5870 and ASUS Rampage Extreme II being prepared, as well as a couple of pictures from other competitors.

Here we see the 5870 that belongs to Patch. Unfortunately it did not last the whole competition
