Again this shows you what is possible when top quality components are used and no corners are cut. Yea it is a little pricey for these types of motherboards buy for those who can appreciate quality and stability from their overclocked processor they choose Asus line of Republic of Gamer series. Impressive results again 6.5 GHz that is sick!!!!!!! Gigabyte is another solid company I put in the elite class of motherboard makers. I wonder what voltage was used to achieve that 6.5 GHz world record?
P.S. Also notice that stick of Corsair Dominator GT ram he is inserting somebody give that man a metal, he has horse sense LOL
Awesome job they are doing there! Asus is a very nice company and this competition is great! Lets see those numbers grow to 7 or above!... :) lol
Lay_Guy i don't get that ps part... :D
FTA: "which tends to have negative effects on those of us who breathe oxygen."
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
@ inspector I was trying to point out that using quality parts throughout a build will yield results most of the time like what we see here. I always praise Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, ect and though I would point out the RAM used in this record breaking overclock. As far as the horse sense that is to say this guy obviously understands quality parts matter when attempting extreme overclocks, but...liquid nitrogen never hurt as well I must point out.
I see Asus threw in their awesome dual 5870 board FTW!!!
Man, That Rampage III board is still beautiful.
This is pretty cool, (pun intended) to see them use LN2. It is to bad that we don't have the ability to use that in any of the current water cooling systems. That would be neat to walk in to BB and say I would like to get that bottle of Nitro for my cooling system :P
I never knew about sealing the MoBO. I do have alot of those erasers still in their wrappers! My only question would be. Yeah they do it here, but what are the implications in the long run with something like that? Are there any issue when it comes to heat distribution or capacitor temperatures?
Always my concern about overclocking, is stability for various tasks. I tried this with an 4850, and it worked ok for games. Yet when it came to other tasks like photoshop or other DCC, then it started crashing the system. This is why I get the proper components that suite the needs for the particular uses intended.
This seems like an interesting competition, although it is like comparing a drag racer to the car you are going to drive to work.
@ animatortom you have to seal everything that could get shorted out as there is always the concern of condensation when using using extreme cooling like this. As far as the length of running a PC under these circumstances, most of the time this is done for competition solely. For an everyday cooling solution water cooling is sufficient. Phase change, liquid nitrogen ect is not for the average Joe and Jane, this takes a skilled individual to enter this arena. Also just to repeat as I stated before issues can always arise but if you use quality components you can greatly remove this hurdle as Asus uses solid Japanese capacitors in their boards especially their high end boards such as this Rampage 3 Extreme. Hope this helps
Yeah, That's why I said I get the right components the first time. I just never paid much attention to The Overclocking craziness.
I figured they would always just lay down some kind of mat. It always seem to me that if you blocked the MoBo that it would disrupt the capacitors ability to get airflow. In LA I never had any issues other than dust, unless I had the PC sitting right next to the the AC:)
I have been here in Waikiki for a few years now. Out here the humidity is really an issue. I have seen PC's with pretty messed up systems because of the calcifying saltwater!
I just hope, as I build up this system, it survives the air here before I get back to LA! Being a Native Fornian, I am used to the drier air and filtering the smog at night. My GF likes to sleep with the windows wide open...AHHH!
If only they could close loop LN2, that would be sweet!

That Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard box is HUGE!!! Might as well include two motherboards in there. lol
By the way, thanks for the heads up on the mastic tape.
That's and interesting conceptual idea Der Meister. I imagine the seal's and tube resiliency would be the major issue because of expansion and detraction, not to mention freezing completely lol!
^indeed that and the pressures involved would be immense, that and the system would need to have such a high pressure so that it would keep the LN2 liquid even after it hit the warm object. and you would need some type of heat exchanger and pump that could withstand all of the above,,,
Maybe if a closed cooling system heated the contents into a gas, and then cooled it into a liquid and recycled it continuously? No moving parts or pumps (except, maybe, a small fan to ablate the heat) would make it reliable too. Oh wait! They have that already!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
That's heatpipe technology. When you integrate an air conditioner compressor, it's a single-stage phase change unit. It's impossible to build a closed-loop LN2 cooler (practically) because of the temperatures involved. Such a system (if it's even possible to build one) would draw enormous amounts of energy and be far larger than the computer system it encompassed.
Damn wonder if that AMD processor would beat a 980X @ 5ghz.
Always had a question about using liquid nitrogen... How often would you have to add in some and how long could you go with 1 liter of liquid nitrogen?
Imagine creating a system where you wouldn't have to manually add nitrogen but rather let it do it by itself. Just like how we have watercooling loops maybe we could have liquid nitrogen loops xD
And something like a Vapochill is too much really. I mean you could fit the whole thing internally in the bottom portion of a Lian Li V2100B but I'm not sure how it handles overclocks and condensation.
YA... i don't think that will happen any time soon(NEVER)... lol. The nitrogen evaporates fast so you would have to keep adding and no one really needs this for a computer you use everyday.
thats never gonna work if u close circuit a ln2 loop ur computers gonna explode bro. also i got my phenom ii x4 965 overclocked to 4.0ghz on air cooled lol
Weren't they using Liquid Helium at one competition last year?
yea at vegas that was sick to see the cpu get to -140c..... i mean -240c
MCSE: genius work
It doesn't do any good to post SPAM here, our mods are on top of it and us members turn you idiots in to them as soon as we see your crap posted.
But you guys are always too stupid to give up.
Cooling down the system to -50 C, is too much. Why to cool down the system so much? Any article?

hitech:Why to cool down the system so much?
They are trying to achieve records for the world's fastest computers in speed tests. In order to get their CPU's to run at superfast speeds, they have to be able to cool everything down so that they do not burn up their electronics with the heat that is generated by operating at such high speeds. It get's hot in these computers because they have to apply much more electrical power to them.
The colder temperatures that they can get to with their methods, make it easy for them to add more power to the system without burning it up. Then the computer operates at extremely high speeds and they may achieve a computer world speed record.
Many people overclock their home PC's to achieve better performance, but they do it on a much smaller scale, with methods that are safe, and not as radical. You must realize that if you overclock your PC incorrectly, you can destroy it.
The specs that go into contests like these sicken me. i go green wit envy every single time. the very best thing you can have i one room with not alot of use. what would they use those for, gaming? not likely.
The very best of the best attend these sorts of competitions i wish i had been in attendance. i bet intel has an idea of how to get past these marks, but 6.5 ghz is incredible, i believe in 4 years it will be like the i-7 is today.
Now we know... When Skynet takes over, its capital city will either be in antartica, or next to an LN2 manufacturing plant. Send John Connor!
suped up computers and liquid nitrogen=total awesome sauce
