These things are always misleading to the layperson. They are not normal Titans. They'll be volt modded and power modded with hardware and the BIOS will be customised. Most Titans hit the 300Watt limit around 1200-1300 MHz going from what I've seen on the Overclock forums.
I know all the professionals do the same to all the top cards but it's still a tad unrealistic. It'd be nice if the full customisation of the card was given out. You know, so we could all try it...not.

It's a shlong measuring competition for companies, merely Asus saying they paid someone well enough to go through all the effort to do this with their card and not someone else's. Marketing stunt for the extreme layperson to see big numbers on a shiny card and buy Asus's over any other brand. Nothing else really seperates them.

You can clearly see that Asus has done an amazing job with their unique GTX TITAN thanks to NVIDIA that allow such changes to it's PCB. This is clearly Asus's own victory.

whats wrong....

Whats wrong is having Andre and Kingpin on the same team...

here is the setup...
http://hwbot.org/submission/2371459

Titan power mods are a bit crazier as their vrms are pathetic...
They use additional boards of vrms to replace the stock ones...

For those who can't click a link....

cough person below me....

Not impressive at all. Who cares about Liquid Nitrogen cooled records. It has absolutely zero real-world impact. When it can do that on a Fan or standard Watercooling Block, then tell us.

It is impressive in its own way.

No you can't run your computer like this 24/7...
But you also probably can't redesign the voltage circuitry to enable such craziness as this...

But since you can't be impressed by redesigning hardware...
here h20 is in spot 2...

Yes, for sure. But there are many of us that would like overclocking to remain something that is for the public, not something that is overshadowed by a bunch of guys working at ASUS, Gigabyte, and similar companies. They always populate the top 10 of global clock records, and have for many many years.

Records are meant to be broken, for sure, but I'd like to see real users breaking them rather than guys with access to endless hardware.



What's different here, and what I applaud ASUS for, is directly stating that these guys are under their employment.

It has also set a world record of 21818 in 3DMark Fire Strike, the latest and most demanding benchmark from Futuremark.

ROG overclocking expert Andre Yang set the new 3DMark11 records using liquid nitrogen-cooled ASUS GeForce GTX Titan cards in a four-way NVIDIA SLI configuration with an ROG Rampage IV Extreme motherboard and an Intel Core i7-3970X processor. Additional information on these world records and the configurations used can be found here. The 3DMark Fire Strike world record was achieved by Andre Yang and fellow ROG team member and overclocker Shamino using two ASUS GeForce GTX Titan cards in NVIDIA SLI. This achievement also used an ROG Rampage IV Extreme motherboard and an Intel Core i7-3970X processor.

About the ASUS GeForce GTX Titan
The ASUS GeForce GTX Titan has a dual-slot design with a full NVIDIA Kepler GPU — a GPU previously reserved for supercomputer applications. It features 2688 CUDA cores and a 384-bit memory interface for its 6GB GDDR5 video memory, clocked at 6000MHz. The ASUS GeForce GTX Titan is DirectX 11.1 compatible, and can easily run the latest PC games in resoutions of 2560 x 1600 and above.
I cant read a damn thing on those pictures...please repost with something someone can read if you can! :toast:

In the meantime I will go to Hwbot and check there.

These things are always misleading to the layperson. They are not normal Titans. They'll be volt modded and power modded with hardware and the BIOS will be customised. Most Titans hit the 300Watt limit around 1200-1300 MHz going from what I've seen on the Overclock forums.
I know all the professionals do the same to all the top cards but it's still a tad unrealistic. It'd be nice if the full customisation of the card was given out. You know, so we could all try it...not.
How is this misleading anyone? One can clearly see the mods done even with one eye...

One can also find how to do the power zombie mods and hard mods if your google foo is up to par. :rockout:

IMO part of the reason you may feel mislead is that the 'news thread' doesnt mention anything about how it was done outside of the cooling (there is a link though!). That said, its not really his responsibility either. One doesnt see a Honda Civic 1/4 mile time under 10 seconds and think its anywhere near stock either so a bit of a leap of faith(using your head) is needed too. ;)

That is probably one of the reasons why hwbot separates the leagues the way they do.

That said I am competing in the current pro overclock cup against these guys. Keep in mind the guys got hired because they set world records on their own.

I've been around the OC scene since 2003(that I will admit). These guys have nearly ALWAYS worked at ASUS(or similar), Andre and Shamino specifically. Well, Shamino went to EVGA for some time, but Andre was involved in quite the scandal on the OC scene some years ago, running benchmarks for friends to use to win competitions. I have ZERO respect for that guy.

Proof:

There's no pulling the wool over these here eyes, let me tell you. That episode is what had me leave the hardcore OC scene. What's the point in competing if others are cheating? that's why they have their own ranking now. I've got as high as 53rd in HWBOT long ago, check XS forums and you'll find tonnes of my benchmarks, post after post after post, me only. :p

Not saying htat is the case now, but bitter tastes fill my mouth on a regular basis when it comes to this type of OC.

ANdre and Shammy have only been hired guns for a couple years... Like 4 maybe?

Whats the point in doing reviews if people are pencil whipping them (there are a lot doing that..)? It has nothing to do with you. If you cant do it for fun, then I understand. Sorry that took the wind out of your sails, but I could give two shits what the top people are doing as even though I am recently into my own LN2, they dont bother me. I dunno, just me... I can see it being disheartening but I wont take my ball and go home over it, forever. :p

+1, you are right. I chose to become a spectator, cheering for my favorites instead. Shamino is one of those, as are Vince and crew. Of course, there are those that I don't cheer for, too.

These guys do stuff no one else will, and it's awesome to see. We won't ever see you chopping off the VRM from a 7970 Matrix to feed Titan, now will we? ;)

But their scores should never have any part in any ranking, anywhere that the public can also join in on, and that's my opinion that will never change. I'm not saying I'm right here, that's just how I feel, and my feelings are based on real events. :p Futuremark needs a "manufacturer ranking" section.

... that was him... :banghead:
wow... that's...sad.

I remember reading that but names don't always stick so well for me.
I have always been crazy into overclocking but not so much benchmarking.
Someone just happened to tip me off that I probably had a WR rig in my hands so I made it official. :D

Another note... Andre said he would be sitting this competition out... Given his past I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Meh, he made a mistake. He apologized, and I think he is sincere. But I will not forget, since I spent $1000's, literal thousands chasing scores of these guys, only to run into this stuff. I complained about it before it was public, then proof was found(although I had NOTHING to do with that). Shit happens, me complaining about stuff long before anyone else has been my story for years.

Meh, it's like finding out that Anand is only like 30 or 31 now, and started Anandtech when he was 14 (in 1997) is shocking to many too.

Oh, you didn't know? :p He's pretty open about that, honestly, posted in the "about" of his website. Just something that has come up recently in my little circle of daily people I talk to.

+1, you are right. I chose to become a spectator, cheering for my favorites instead. Shamino is one of those, as are Vince and crew. Of course, there are those that I don't cheer for, too.

These guys do stuff no one else will, and it's awesome to see.
We won't ever see you chopping off the VRM from a 7970 Matrix to feed Titan, now will we?
;)

But their scores should never have any part in any ranking, anywhere that the public can also join in on, and that's my opinion that will never change. I'm not saying I'm right here, that's just how I feel, and my feelings are based on real events. :p Futuremark needs a "manufacturer ranking" section.
I have the(a) zombie board...but I don't want to afford another $1k card. :eek:... so I think you are right in that specific context.

Coffee cups?
They are on top of the, what I am assuming are Tek 9 fat pots. It helps for LN2 pouring. ;)

For those who don't get how much work and preparation go into high level competitive benching > I am sorry but you just won't get it... If you are complaining about this not being air or water results, why aren't you searching HW for that info (as it certainly wouldn't be new ;) )

This is to computers like top fuel drag car or funny car as your standard computer is to a camry and notebook to a geo metro / honda civic. The only real world application this has is to show what is possible, when today's tech is pushed to the limits. And it is a way for friends to compete with one another in their shared field of interest.

And if you want to watch the benching, you can sometimes view it via livestream - but it will likely be very long and very boring

And most of the overclockers working for companies started out like anyone else. just tinkering around, it became a hobby, it turned into more than a hobby, companies were impressed enough with talent and ability to bring them on. Anyone has a chance to have something like that happen ;)

And you and I are usually there(although I do not use this UID, very interesting to see how using a different UID gets me so much more info and help). That's when you can ask real questions and get real answers. Although I see Vince smashing stuff in anger more often than answering questions. :p

And for the time we've both spent watching I don't think it can really be THAT boring.

I've been offered flights to Taipei on a couple of occasions now, so maybe you are right in that regard. And you've gotta prove yourself in order to get recognized. But I feel that OEMs need to get out of it so that more users get their chance in the light. And I'm not complaining because I want any of that....I think there are many users out there with some serious skills that just don't bother because of how things are.

And you are right, there's tonnes of prep and work that goes into this stuff.
