I bet EVGA sells cards from this nonsense, I feel sorry for the sucker that falls for it.
We care. The rest of us who mod our cards using the "untouchables" VRM mod, the rest of us who buy Lightning cards, and freeze them specifically for this purpose of achieving high scores. This isn't meant to impress you of "real world overclocking". If you can't appreciate it then it's not for you, but please don't knock it. To some of us, go cold or go home is the motto, this "real world" air cooling overclocking you're talking about doesn't appeal to us at all.
The amount of effort required to do and achieve this is lost to you and that's ok but don't speak ill of an overclocking milestone. Big ups to EVGA and Vince for this achievement
