EDIT: Event's over, thanks to those who stopped by!
That's right, Bobnova is cooling his Intel core i7 2600k, Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 and Zotac GTX480 down to well below zero with dry ice and benching the hell out of them!
The goal of this session is to beat enough other people with similar hardware to gain points on hwbot.org, the database that tracks competition overclocking. My team is on a major push to get into the top10 in the world, and I'm working on getting into the top 200 in the world and top 30 in the USA. How much this session will help my personal goals I don't know yet as the Zotac GTX480, while massively powerful, is behind the GTX580 in power.
This will be my first time benching with a video card subzero, once I have things well figured out I will be taking my Zotac GTX580 cold as well. That should yield some massive points as the card will already overclock to over 1ghz core on the stock air cooling, Zotac put together a damn good card here and I'm glad I was lucky enough to snag it.
