  1. My guess is he means how you took note of when it was having the cbb and got as close as possible to the lowest temp without hitting it again, and how you made adjustments solely to that. ;)
    What impressed me the most about the session was the way Miah handled the cb and cbb, imo you have to be a pro to navigate your way around two pretty big OC obstacles. Great session Miah :)

    6.2 is around 600mhz less than what he was looking for. Pretty huge gap IMHO.


    No big deal Dex....6.2 is still a pretty big number compared to what most people have hit. I was not impressed, but it's OK for others to be ;)

    I'm glad you all enjoyed it and learned something.... :thup:

    6192Mhz, I think is pretty darn good, considering its 3.2Ghz default... That's almost a 3Ghz overclock!

    The highest 655K on the bot is 6650Mhz... So, you're not too far off...


    Compared to his 670, the 655k is terrible and thats all that matters ;)

    Thanks for the intro to benching last night Miah. Definitely learned a lot, and you guys have for sure sparked my interest in extreme overclocking :thup:


    Likewise.

    :clap:

    The insights you provided during the session really helped n00bs like myself learn a bit about the world of LN2! I'll be tuned in next time.

    I.M.O.G.
    Thanks for having us all Miah! Too bad the chip didn't have what it takes!

    I captured a screen of the highest viewers I saw, but I was in and out through the evening:


    He did push the chip pretty far, regardless. It was interesting to finally see how true tests with LN2 go. I'd never seen one before.

    I was also in and out through the evening (no pun intended), but man I wish I could have sat through the whole thing 100%. I started off with the laptop in front of me and my fiance while we ate dinner, and then I had the laptop on next to me in the living room while I spent hours redoing our entertainment center, wiring, and vacuuming!!!

    Good work, Miah... even though you didn't get as far as you probably wanted, just know that you were a great teacher and definitely put smiles on my faces that wanted to know what true cooling and extreme overclocking was about!!! GOOD WORK!!
    Great turn out. Too bad the chips didn't have what it takes. But thats how it goes sometimes right. Still good stuff and very informative for all.

    CPU was terrible....max speed about 6192MHz....not even worth a screenshot. :(


    You just need an AX1200 to power it ;)

    I have got to try that motherboards on the wall thing. Would look better than the nothing I have on my walls now.

    Nice....yeah thanks to everyone who stopped by. I had the largest audience ever today....I saw as many as 68 views synced :thup:


    TEAM RAINLESS was in attendance.

    I just KNEW you were dead at least a couple times in there. I just saw frost, and smoke, and liquid nitrogen fumes. (And I thought I saw two feet flying up in the air...)

    I was hoping you'd left your door unlocked so I could pick up your gear after everything (except you of course) thawed out!

    Good show! :beer:
