Meh these kinda "overclocking enthusiasts" are a mystery to me.
Where does one get the money to buy 4 GTX 580's and then dump the whole rig full of liquid nitrogen just to run it for 15mins and get a top score.
Just look at his setup!: http://hwbot.org/signature.img?iid=476448&thumb=false&iehack=.jpg
Infact real world overclocking tests (without insane cooling) was disappointing on these cards:
