K|ngp|n scores 30K 3Dmark06 with OC 9800GX2

LN2 takes the GPUs to 949MHz 

 


The famous
enthusiast overclocker k|ngp|n has got his hands on Nvidia's 790i Ultra SLi chipset and a Geforce 9800GX2 card, both from EVGA, and as you have probably guessed by now, overclocked it sky high with a little help from some LN2 cooling.

The test system that he used consists of EVGA's 790i Ultra SLI motherboard, a single EVGA Geforce 9800GX2 reference cooled card, Corsair Dominator 1800 CL7 memory, a Yorkfield Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-core processor, Corsair's HX1000W and Silverstone 850W Zeus PSUs.

As would any other overclocking enthusiast do, k|ngp|n decided to put his own LN2 pots on this new graphics card to see how far could it go on LN2. The results are stunning, from 754MHz and 3DMark06 score of 24,793, which he managed to get the card with reference cooling to 945MHz and 29,970 when LN2 got into the game. The final clocks when cooled by LN2 are 949MHz for the core, 1,129MHz for the memory and, this is not a typo, 2,389MHz for the Shaders.

We are sure that he will be able to go over the 30k result pretty soon. K|ngp|n is promising Quad-SLI results this week. You can check out the screenshots here.
