Ben


Preparations to competition


Start of assembly: YoYoTech, Benchtec and Ben


DarkCat and Midland Computers


Connecting the cables - see the hammer :o on the table, just in case  ;)


The race began - looking for the best BIOS settings  ???



YoYoTech was using water cooling



One more MHz please!


Special attention during filling the flasks with Liquid Nitrogene


Media and audience gathered



Benchtec was using Liquid Nitrogene (LN2) for CPU cooling




Temperature dropped slowly



LN2 boiling in cooper CPU pot (heatsink)


See what happens when LN2 is poured into water


The winner was Philip from Midland Computers, our congratulations! He will go to Prague in April to represent UK during European GOOC competitions. MD of Gigabyte UK  John Hung gratulates Philip Brown.

Excellent event - thx to everyone that joined.  ;D

We had some good scores, even when using AIR.
This must be down to the quality build of the Gigabyte X58 boards - especially the 2oz Copper  :P

Serious, thx for the support.

If Benchtec had submitted the 3DM06 result to HWB, it would have been bronze for the GTX260-216! The GPUs overclock like crazy!

Thanks again for inviting us! Hope to be at next years event- maybe even see the Gigabyte staff at another event before then?

:D

Cheers!

Is anyone using the Ghost mouse they got? I think it is much smoother than the G5 I had, and obviously more dpi :P

Has is been released yet? I am not using the mouse pad at the moment (simply to big for my desk!!!) but it has a better resolution than my old gaming mouse and it handles games better than the old one :)

Nice mouse.  Will we see it being used at the GOOC?
