Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Asus 3x3 Overclocking Summit in Santa Clara.

I only really know PURE's numbers and they weren't very good compared to what we normally produce. I fought with the P55 rig for hours until one of the threads disappeared and the chip started to scale. I had CPU-Z shots around 6.5GHz but I think only a validation around 6.4GHz. Super Pi 32M was run at 6.1GHz for 7:02, XS ran 32M I think at 6GHz for 7:13, and OCA was somewhere around 8:15 or so. For X58 PURE roflstomped the SPi 32M scores but I wasn't paying attention to anything else.

On Sunday we ran the 5 pot Lynnfield rig due to the limitations put in place. We were around 41k 3DMark Vantage, severely CPU limited at 4.9GHz. The HD5870s were humming away at 1200MHz core 1300MHz memory, the BIOS limits on the cards. We tried to flash to another BIOS but something wasn't cooperating. If we had the BIOS flash and were on an X58 rig we would have likely been around 55k 3DMark Vantage Performance. I had so much fun running that 5 pot rig, I'll be gathering up the video cards to do it again in a few weeks :supz:
