    Overclocking with ASUS at Dreamhack

    ASUS Nordic invited me together with ME4ME and Mean Machine to overclock live at this years Dreamhack Summer.

    We focused on 3DMark Vantage and there is more to be had out of this system since there was limited time and lots of condensation issues when benching four graphics cards in such an event.

    System specs:

    Intel Core i7 980X 3013A
    ASUS Rampage III Extreme
    4x ASUS GTX 480
    3x2GB Corsair GTX2
    2x Corsair AX1200 PSUs
    Petri pot for cpu (SF3D Inflection) and Tek9s for gpus

    The end result was P63226.



    And there's even more to be had out of the cpu, with this setup GT1 is 100% limited by it.











    Round 4 with 4-Way SLI will hopefully not be too soon

    Wow, that's a véry efficient run. Looks like I'll have to go R3E for the 3D runs again ... just like with the R2E

    Question : Why do some overclockers switch into d*ckmode when money is involved

    Remark : They call me Pro Asus Saaya yupp, I agree

    I was supposed to be more of an announcer, but all those wow gamers seemed to hog all the people's attention, so I had the mic for maybe one hour during the entire weekend. Three is one too much for this kind of thing.
    I KNOW MASSMAN DISLIKES YOU.

    Thank you everyone! Benching live is always very hard and exhausting.

    Haha, golden touch Nah but there's always alot of preparations and I have some good support from vendors which helps quite a bit. It's not like you will "break ALL the world records"* just because you get some support which some people seems to think but it makes life easier

    It helps quite a bit since GT1 is 100% cpu limited, but I have no numbers for you
