    Renowned overclocker Duck set a new record 3DMark Vantage. The record was set at an event apparently conducted by Galaxy Tech. The record now stands at P75324 points. Duck used four Galaxy GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards in 4-way SLI to achieve the feat. It appears as if at least one, if not all, use an ASUS BIOS, perhaps to avail the VoltageTweak feature. Apart from the graphics cards, Duck's bench consisted of two Intel Xeon E5680 Westmere-EP 6-core/12-thread processors clocked at 5368 MHz, EVGA Classified SR-2 dual-LGA1366 motherboard, 6x 2 GB Corsair DDR3-2000 MHz CL7 memory, multiple 1200W PSUs (Corsair AX1200W + SilverStone Strider Gold SST-ST1200G), and Intel X25-M 80 GB SSD. In the cooling department, there are Duck's own JCA Water Bear Pot WB02A and K|ngp|n F1 cooling the two processors, K|ngp|n Tek9 4 and 5.0 cooling the GPUs, a custom heatsink cluster cooling the GPU VRM, and gobs of insulation.

    Those boxes are kept there only to market Galaxy. The cards are what that picture was put up to show.

    I like how it is a Galaxy event, but they are using an eVGA motherboard and ASUS video cards...:laugh:

    Looks like temp sensors.

    Also, vrm heatsinks held on with rubber bands sounds like something I'd do.

    Since they are both using the same PCB and are physically identical, changing the BIOS from a Galaxy to an ASUS, makes the cards ASUS cards. If Galaxy wanted to show off how awesome their cards are, they wouldn't need to convert the cards to ASUS cards...:shadedshu

    Read the article again please, and specially this part:
    But you are right, they should have tried to bench with their default video cards. But since extreme o.c. means taking extreme measures...;) ;)

    And read what I posted again. The only thing that makes a Galaxy card different from an ASUS card is the BIOS. So putting an ASUS BIOS on the cards makes them ASUS cards. It isn't really a great feat for Galaxy if they had to use someone elses BIOS because theirs wasn't capable. Kind of counter intuative, don't you think?

    You forgot about the sticker and cardbox, hehe :pimp::laugh:

    On the other hand, to bad that those systems are made to last only a couple of minutes, and they cannot play anything on them also. Pretty useless if you ask me...

    WR in overall score but not the highest in GPU only:

    [​IMG]

    There are probably others out there but this one has nearly 4000 better GPU score.

    To Duck's credit, his does have the highest CPU score i've ever seen.

    I do like the way that obviously all the kit is the latest high-end stuff that's all cutting edge...

    ...and the OS: XP from 2001. It's 9 years old, can we drop it yet?

    (I know that you are meant to be able to get higher scores with XP, but still...)

    Yeah most of those runs are with just about everything OS related disabled that is not absolutely necessary. (which is why you don't get the eye candy of vista or win7)

    Waits for Duck to come on the forums complaining that Crysis stutters with his 4 way sli, wr breaking setup and someone says "It's either your PSU or your CPU is bottlenecking your setup"
