It appears
that messing with toilet paper and LN2 has paid dividends as the crew doing the overclocking on Asus’ ROG booth has managed to break two world records.

In a single-GPU category, a rig based around a Core i7 975 XE at 5.692MHz and an Asus Radeon HD 5870 at 1,300MHz GPU on Asus Rampage Extreme III managed to score 416,726 points in Aquamark 3.

Dual GPU category saw another world record in 3DMark 2005, as a rig based around Core i5 670 at 6422MHz and two HD5870s running at 1,200MHz managed to score 50,754 points.
