Overclockers Benching Team member onefstsnake (HWBot profile), will be benching sub-zero live tonight!

Tune in to stage 1 at 7 p.m. EST for some overclocking with dry ice (DICE). Here’s the low-down:

  • Mobo: Rampage III Extreme
  • CPU: i7 920
  • RAM: G.Skill Pi DDR3-1600
  • GPU: nVidia 8800 GTX Ultra, possibly also a water-cooled GTX285
  • Cooling: Dry ice on the CPU, air (and possibly water) on the GPU
  • Focus: Learning DICE, 3d and 2d benches, and high cpuz screenshot
  • Click here to watch on Stage 1
  • Date & Time: October 20, 2010, 7 p.m. EST
    • He will finish when the DICE runs out or something dies (hopefully the former!).

Hope you can stop by and root him on!

Pot is here, DICE is here. Going to get threaded rod now.

Hopefully I can get the OS's loaded up before 7pm, but we will see.

Thanks to all who stop by tonight. Should be fun! :rock:

Sorry Loo, but that was last night. He did see 5GHz, but ran into some issues when his first RAM slot got wet.

I'm quite positive this isn't the last livestream we'll have from snake though. :)

Figured out why everything was wet. Tube on the pot was pretty loose.

I put a little silicone grease on the threads. Not only does it make it much nicer to attach and detach, but it acts as a sealant too.
