Last weekend a bunch of lucky Brisbane-based Atomicans and Umart customers had a chance to learn how to use liquid nitrogen to overclock AMD's new FX-8150 CPUs. The event was run by four members of TeamAU, with some of the best overclockers from Australia and New Zealand showing how to get the most out of an FX-8150 CPU running at -170 degrees.
What was most impressive was the level of skill on show from the participants. Two of the teams managed CPU speeds over 7GHz, and the end results of the 3DMark05 competition run on the day were incredibly close (3DMark05 was chosen due to it being very CPU dependant). We even got to see one CPU die during the event, pushed beyond its limits.
Big thanks to TeamAU, GIGABYTE, AMD, Corsair and Umart for getting the event off the ground. It was a fantastic turnout and the general level of overclocking skill on show was impressive indeed.
