On LN2, naturally


Overclocking
legend Peter Tan aka Shamino has managed to overclock Nvidia's GTX 480 to 1165MHz with the help of some LN2 and nerves of steel.

As you probably know by now, the GTX 480 is reference clocked at 700MHz. The GTX 480 is not what we'd call overclocking friendly. It's rather hot and under load it consumes more power than the Large Hadron Collider, but Shamino still managed to pull off a 66 percent overclock.

The test rig, powered by an oveclocked Xeon E5640 at 4GHz, scored P29686 in 3DMark Vantage. You can check out the thread here.
