    never really seen the point with this level of extreme-ness myself, being able to make a pc boot at insane speeds means very little, and a lot of it is either luck or being very very rich

    Well it just seems to be a lot of fun with 'destruction derby' on pc hardware. If you don't see the point, then you can stop doing anything like watching tv. typing a comment on a website, running around a track to keep fit, riding you bike, reading a book. Because there is no point in doing that also. The best thing to do is just go to bed for the rest of you're live because whats the point to do anything stupid...

    Is this not sort of equivalent to a "who has the biggest penis" competition?

    Oh, come on! How many of you have (or at least aspire to) an SLI'd rig with watercooling and 1000 Watts PSU?! What's the point of that? What's the point of even painting your case, or those vandal proof switches?

    This is modding, people. It is about taking computer hardware beyond the ordinary. It's fun. You do remember what fun is, do you?

    This is awesome, I'd love to dabble with a bit of LN2 cooling one day. It's on the list of awesome things to do. :D

    he has got a point there, everyone runs 3Dmark just for a laugh, and some people take it too far and start thinking that is all that matters.

    3Dmark is actually the reason i upgraded from a FX5700LE to a 6800GT back in the day, mind you my old FX5700LE was lag tastic! my poor 6800GT was pushed to it limit until after 2 years of balls out speed it died. i had it clocked at 425Mhz for so long when i went to clock it again i thought it was the stock speed! custom overclocking via bios mods, ment stock speed was 425Mhz, it blew at 460MHz after 2 years on water. how i miss it!

    Sure, I'd love to have an awesome rig like that... but to use it... not to say I could get an incredible score on 3DMark..

    Making a contest out of it seems.. pointless..

    The very nature of Chip manufacturing means that a competition like this could be won just by luck..

    Even if it is a load of crap to some people, it's fun to see what people can achieve with extreme cooling. I find it fun to read/watch. Even if it is a ePenis contest.

    The points is thats its Fun.:duh:
    Just like racing cars. To ur standarts there is no point to it.
    But its fun to push hardware to the limit see how a group of ppl work together and can achieve something.
    Ofcourse not everyone is able to do that like the pros. But people will imitate it slightly in the real world.
    Like having fast cars with turbo chargers. Imitating the look of drift/race cars with body kits.
    Might not be practical but its a hobby, and its considered fun, puzzeling, challenging and unique.

    Isn't anything competitive hinting that then?
    Boxing, Soccer, Football, Racing, even when you play FPS games.
    Sounds like someone :nono: is the biggest "i hate everything that i can't have".

    People are doing it with cars, Boats, Bikes almost anything for decates. Pushing hardware to the limits. All those things require geeks also. Who Will design the engines the body frames and suspensions. Exactly geeks. So whoever says this is a place for loosers competing(think of what you are using ur daily car) is a complete :wallbash:. You should rather do nothing and rott to death like [USRF]Obiwan says.
    w/o competition there is not inovation w/o inovation there is recration w/o etc etc we won't move forward in anything.
    And we be still cave people...

    Even though i don't know anything about over clocking, it is amazing to see a ice tube and laboratory equipment strapped onto a motherboard and make a CPU go 100%+ the speds it was designed for. Look at that picture is like they Froze everything to one piece lol =) Awsome.

    I think you all should reserve your judgment until you read my upcoming article. I came here expecting an Epeen boast fest, much like what i've seen from the pro gaming scene in the past, but the level of skill and preparation involved is incredible, and there's been nothing but good spirited competition, co-operation and humor between the teams.

    Also, liquid nitrogen makes your drinks very cold, very fast - FACT!
