haha bad timing for the pic I suppose. I think a few of the women were after a few hours.

I really hope there's something like this again in the near future, I'll definitely be able to stay later next time.

thanks for the pics, anyone else with photos? anyone? we all want to see them.

i am glad you had a good time, i really had a blast watching you guys get into your grove pouring the LN2 on the GPU. later in the night and the next day i was running the GPU at -150C and colder with some crazy tight tolerances on temps. that is when the real pouring skill is involved. i think a real pouring competition is in the cards next time. i got word some ASUS prizes were suppose to be here, so perhaps we might have another sooner than later, we'll see.

here are a couple more photos that were on my camera from the day/night/day. i will be doing a write up of the event as soon as i can, but i need to get the photos from my photographer i had on hand as well as video footage. too much on my plate right now.

a little GTX 580 prep in the lobby at the Convergence Center...

me apparently questioning the score on a bench possibly...

late night empty lab benching. top left RAM temp, bottom left CPU temp, right GPU temp...

the next morning after a brief 40 minute nap, i hit 03 again after some sorting of software. i was alone in the lab and able to really push the card/work on temps and came up with a solid global top 10 single card 03.

GPU temps at -150C during the first three tests, full pot during nature...

Cool man, looks like a fun day!

what you folks needed was a benchtop -85 freezer to help cool the MB. it would prolong the LN2 as well.
Revco ULT185 or equivalent.
