    Another achievement by Marcus 'Kinc' Hultin who has now set a new 3DMark 05 world record with pair of ASUS Radeon HD 2900 XT graphics cards. With the cards overclocked to 880/990MHz core/mem (air-cooled) and an Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 at 5341MHz, 2x1GB Corsair 6400C3 and an ASUS P5W64 WS Pro, Kinc managed to reach 34,126 points in 3DMark 05.

    He's a reviewer i think. The parts are sponsored from various companies to let him test and review?

    ATTENTION!! I am now a reviewer. I'll need crossfire 2900XT 1GB DDR4, 8GB DDR2-1250, 2 150GB RAPTOR in RAID0, and a Core 2 Extreme QX6800 cooled by liquid nitrogen and that new Ultra 1600W psu. Oh and also a kickass overclocking board. And the north bridge and south bridge cooler by liquid nitro too. Get some phase change on those 2900's!!

    Or better yet, rip the reatsinks off everything and just dunk it in a tank of liquid nitrogen :laugh:

    Not always.

    LN2 doesn't mean insta death.

    Inexperience and stupid moves kill hardware.

    I've run 2.3v through an AXP.

    It still runs perfectly fine to this day.

    He beat the previous world record by almost 400 points.
    Great job with the stock cooler.
    When aftermarket ones hit the market I beleive he will manage crazy scores

    Imagine a Quad Core at 5400mhz each core, 4gb Ram , 4 8800 Ultras in Quad SLI....Wouldnt that make about 50.000 points in 3dmark05 ? :p

    Because the motherboard uses the i975 chipset, so he's limited to 445mhz, which most 6400 kits will happily reach.

    890mhz 1:1 with CL4 timings on a 975 chipset = awesome performance! I had my memory set up in a similar configuration, and i was hitting 10,500mb/s in Everest Read, and the latency was down to 44ns!

    Way aren't they using the LN2[ or even water] on the 2900xt's:wtf: do they not respond well to negative temps, I know some chips don't. Probably being that close to CPU keeps it chilled though.

    Crossfire is a bitch to make a custom LN setup for?


    But still, why show all your cards when only two will win the game?

    I would imagine if you flash the BIOS's of both cards one by one... overclock!

    Quad core doesn't benefit in 05. 4GB is useless. 4x8800Ultra's doesn't give you any improvement over 2xUltras.
