  • CPU: i7 920
  • RAM: 6GB Corsair Dominator GT 2000 CL7
  • Cooling: dry ice on the CPU

  • Date & Time: June 3rd, 8:00 p.m. EST

Not to be out-done, KonaKona is over at our fearless benching team leader sno.lcn‘s house and they’re going to be going extra cold with some liquid nitrogen! Here are their details:

Rig 1

  • Mobo: Some MSI MB
  • CPU: AMD 1055T
  • RAM: Kingston DDR3-2000
  • GPU: GTX 260 or 4870, plan on getting some time in with both.

  1. Uh, I'm at sno's house, not the other way around. ;)
    "The guy that overvolts things is over at benching team leader sno.lcn's house for some LN2 action!"
    He he
    Fixed. I thought you were at your house b/c you said something about your dad & bed time. Sorry!

    More like I couldn't get my dad to accept sno's offer of free beer to get him to stay later. :shrug:
    I will try to stop by at some point. You guys should not have picked tonight, game 1 of the NBA Finals is on!!! Oh well, I guess benching is probably more interesting anyways...
    Well, after arriving home today (and buying a load of dry ice on the way home), it turns out that the package my rents said arrived was not the one I was expecting, in fact it turned out to be a package for them and they just assumed it was for me :mad:
    So, needless to say, without any RAM I won't be streaming tonight :chair: :temper: The tracking is way messed up on the RAM package (RMA from Corsair) so I really have no way of tracking it at all, but based on the latest tracking update since it didn't arrive here today it better be arriving tomorrow :shock:
