k|ngp|n and EVGA sets three new world records with LN2

Posted on Monday, October 29 2012 @ 16:30:49 CET by

Overclocker k|ngp|n and EVGA set three new 3DMark 11 world records with LN2:
ince “k|ngp|n” Lucido is one of the world’s most well known Overclockers today. So in October 2012, EVGA put his skills to the test and challenged him to crush the competition and sweep the board for 3DMark 11 scores. Armed with an assortment of EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified, EVGA X79 Classified Motherboard, EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified power supplies, and enough Liquid Nitrogen to turn Taipei into a deep freeze; Vince was able to smash three brand new 3DMark 11 World Records*. In fact, EVGA along with k|ngp|n were the first to reach over 17,000 points on a single graphics card!

World Records:
  • 3DMark 11 Performance (Single Card) – P17,047

  • 3DMark 11 Performance (2-Way SLI) – P25,380

  • 3DMark 11 Extreme (4-Way SLI) – X17,384

    *World Records verified on 23 October 2012

    Asked how he achieved it, Vince “k|ngp|n” Lucido remained lucid directly after filming, and answered: “Using the EVGA 680 Classified with my TEK-9 FAT GPU LN2 unit, I was able to get the GPU core clock screaming at close to 2100MHz! EVGA Precision and the new K-Boost feature helped me achieve this. …Next stop 2200MHz on EVGA 680.”

  • To celebrate this feat, EVGA is holding a contest:
    To celebrate k|ngp|n's new World Records, EVGA is launching a contest featuring a prize package of epic proportions! Not to mention the giveaway includes a “one of a kind” Intel 3770K CPU, that is HAND PICKED by k|ngp|n himself!
