Shamino Pushes 3DMark06 To New Heights

World Record Result for July 23, 2007
By: Steve Dougherty | Posted: Jul 23, 2007 11:30 pm

World reknowned overclocker "Shamino" has been at it again recently, and after popping his overclocking vitamins has managed to pick up a new world record score of 25,733 points in 3DMark06.


The result was made possible with a new Core 2 Extreme QX6850 processor running at 5082MHz (462x11) using liquid nitrogen, and also a pair of ASUS GeForce EN8800 Ultra cards at 918/1224MHz with dry ice. He hopes to yield even better results once he gets the graphics cards onto liquid nitrogen as well, looking to get that GPU speed up to and beyond 1GHz.


You can check out the results and screenshots for yourself over at VR-Zone.


After having some vitamins, I felt strong, so I put my Intel QX6850 Extreme Edition on the EVGA nForce 680i SLI Motherboard, and cooled it with refrigeration Cascade.


First I tested FSB with the Kentsfield Quad Core Processor. The vitamins were superb, my Kentsfield now scaled up to a shocking 500MHz FSB!!
