[citation][nom]the1kingbob[/nom]I wonder how stable the GPU overclock is. Doubt it could handle a few hours of heavy gaming without some aftermarket cooling.[/citation]

I guarantee that those beats are cooled by a compressor or by liquid nitrogen

installed them on its upcoming X79 Dark Motherboard
Not really sure if its fair that they broke records on a motherboard that hasn't even been released yet, so they could have some kind of unfair advantage with it. Maybe I'm wrong but just throwing it out there.

You'd have to be clinically insane to even approach a 200% OC on stock cooling (or even water, for that matter). These records are almost universally achieved with liquid nitrogen or even liquid helium on zombied cards (i.e. extensively modified with additional VRMs, etc.), and are for the sole purpose of benchmarking, nothing more.

I would agree, if you look at the screenshot Precision X is reporting 0C, so its probably sub zero and out of the sensors range. However that is not the point of this, this is a world record, and a beautiful one, they really got a hefty overclock on those cards!
