Sponsorship isn't monetary. I guess he just wants to make his high bench scores endorsed by a community.

I highly doubt sponsoring would happen, It's rather pointless. However everyone here is hapy to give advice.
For example for 3Dmark > ATI. 2 3870x2's on Z7S/Skulltrail for example.
I'm still holding out with the nvidia 8800GTX they have been flashed for new OC'd bios and currently I'm working on my Vmod for them to increase the voltage to insane amounts ^.^!

Talking about LN2 again, is there any system as they have on some labs for making a circuit as water ones and forget to refill the tanks every 30-40 mins? Or that's impossible cause LN2 needs to evacuate all the gases he produces?

I'm asking you this cause i'm interested if a machine cooled by LN2 could be 24/7 as you can go with a Vapochill or Vapoli machine.

edit: yes, you'll have also to replace the LN2 tanks, which will be expensive and hard ... but anyway could be done if you can make a circuit that can holds LN2 and keep it solid when needed then back to liquid ...
