It's too bad you were running short on time for this, having a video with some of these results would have been even more icing on this delicious cake! Unfortunately I won't be able to make Monday or Tuesday. Ill be home on Thursday so if you want to film them give me a shout!

Congrats man, once again a job well done!
thanks Eric, it really would have been cool to have you here yesterday and the night before but it wasn't pretty at times. almost 20 hours straight of teardown-prep-troubleshooting-teardown-prep...etc. the video of me at the end when i finally got that 06 run to put me over the top might not have been pretty. not to mention i don't think you would have stuck around for the mayham. the first 30 mins with the 05 and AM3 runs would have been great though

i'll see if i can still have the rig running for thursday and we'll do some benching for sure

Very well done 3oh6! That is huge IMO. Thanks to HWC and MSI for helping him out, great to see a Canadian Flag waving proudly in the top ten @ HWBot!
Not to mention the only Canadian in the top 100

Wow, grats 3oh6! Way to make the leaps and bounds up the list in the past few weeks. I'm afraid to ask you how much sleep you had (or rather, haven't had) through the month of August...

WOW! Big congrats to you 3oh6. And Thanks for putting the Canadian flag up on the top 10.
You are indeed the hardware master - overclocking master.

thanks for all the encouragement guys, i had to go again tonight with higher GPU clocks to stay in the top ten. doesn't look like it is going to stick without going cold on the GTX 295, or getting a good E8600. so anyone happen to have a 6.4GHz E8600 laying around they aren't using?

all setup, ready for cold...



running 06 at -105C +/-...



the higher GPU clocks resulted in a small bump in AM3 score...



and a small jump in 05, good for 4th highest globally...



i also managed a good bump in 06 jumping to a 4th globally there as well...

Even at almost 5.4Ghz, the CPU is still bottlenecking the GPUs. Wow.

Great scores though!
