Following his recent success in overclocking an 8800GTX's GPU up to and beyond 900MHz, overclocking champ Kinc from NordicHardware has since been working very hard to push for the most extreme 3DMark 2001 and 2005 benchmark runs witnessed to date.

Sure enough, he's done it! Feast your eyes on the below screenies to see the results for yourselves.

Already at the beginning of this weekend Kinc managed to score a new single-card 3DMark2001 world record and then it was a complete humiliation of the previous world record, which was recently set by Norwegian overclocker Stoolman. Last night Kinc continued his overclocking session and improved his previous world record, quite a lot. But our overclocking ace also took the time to set a new single-card 3DMark05 world record. The card is, of course, a GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card from XFX and the processor an Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800. It's also the processor which has been the key to the new records. He has namely been able to raise the frequency to quite a lot since his last record. From 5060MHz to incredible 5347MHz.
