Kinc and crotale smash 3DMark records at DreamHack

Posted on Monday, December 03 2007 @ 12:05:19 CET by

Swedish overclockers Kinc and crotale polished their overclocking skills at DreamHack 2007 this weekend. First they broke the 3DMark world record by scoring 29,147 points and a day later they smashed their previous record with a score of 29,325.

This score was achieved on a L2N cooled Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 clocked at 5522MHz (431MHz x 13) and a ASUS Radeon HD 2900 XT CrossFire setup running at 1200/980MHz. The motherboard used in this project was the ASUS P5E3 WS Pro along with Corsair Dominator DDR3-1800 memory clocked at 1698MHz with 6-6-5-15 timings and a SilverStone 1200W PSU to power the system.
The polished world record is 29,325 points, an increase by 178 points from the day before. The key was to push the cores of the Radeon HD 2900 XT graphics cards from 1175 MHz to 1200 MHz. The graphics memory was also slightly higher clocked. They are still 120 MHz short of the processor of the record system used by Kingpin, Shamino and Hipro during the Plaisio Overclocking Event in Greece. If they would be able to get a hold of a similar processor, a dream score of 30,000 points is starting to look quite feasible.
