Overall results and coverage (part 2)
Here's a quick shot of how "Vapor" sets up his system for overclocking
Eric Hassett aka "Vapor" pours liquid nitrogen over the processor as he prepares to overclock his system. Vapor was last year's Freestyle Champion and already has an invitation to Gigabyte's Championship in Taiwan.
Charles "Fugger" Wirth waits for his system to boot after setting up his sytem. Wirth was one of last year's champions and already has an invitation to Gigabyte's Championship in Taiwan.
This was the only system submerged in mineral oil in the competition

Here's a quick screenshot of Fugger's CPU configuration. I believe he got higher than this toward the end of the competition.
