Harmless Overclocking, or MADNESS!!!!

Subject: Graphics Cards | November 4, 2005 - 12:00 PM |

It's all fun and games until someone looses dry ice, then it's a sport.  Hardware Asylum has done some insane things with the clock speeds of whatever they can get their hands on.  While it may well have inspired their name, it has also inspired their members to take the top spot in 3DMarks 2001SE, 2003 and 2005.  Take a peek at what a GPU at - 171 C looks like.

Team Hardware Asylum has broken all three Futuremark 3DMark world records. We have set the world

records in 3DMark 2001SE, 3DMark '03, and 3DMark '05. We have also reached a few milestones with

these records. We are the first to ever reach 50,000 points in 3DMark 2001SE, and the first to

ever reach 40,000 points in 3DMark '03. We also hold the world record of 17,560 points in 3DMark


To obtain these results we were using an AMD Athlon FX-57 which was liquid nitrogen cooled to

3.9GHz (3900MHz) benchmarking stable. We were also using voltage modified Gigabyte GeForce 7800GTX

video cards in SLI. The video cards were cooled by dry ice. We also set the record for the

highest AMD clock speed on the Futuremark ORB (Online Result Browser) in history with an amazing

clock of 3939MHz."
