Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido is one of the worlds top overclockers out there right now. During a session in the test lab while working with some extreme cooling, he was able to break past the previous world record of around X12200 in Futuremark 3DMark 11 Extreme. During the Extreme overclocking session he was able to set a new world record of X12,554! The hardware he was using consisted of an EVGA E779 X79 Classified motherboard, Intel Core i7 3960X, and four of EVGA’s CLASSIFIED GeForce GTX 580 ULTRA Graphics cards! K|ngp|n says that he's not done yet, and will push to break the X13000 Score in the weeks to come! Best of luck!

He was able to snag a score of over X12,500 points with the cards running at 1.3GHz Core clock and over 2400MHz Memory Clock.

K|ngp|n is scary, 12-13K is a pretty healthy P-score let alone X-score.

But I had to lol at the dixie cup funneling LN2 into one of the GPUs. Even a world champion overclocker sometimes has to improvise. :mrgreen:
