It is long long time since I last wrote something over here or anywhere else.
Nothing lasts forever they say..
Few weeks ago I was invited to Intel Sweden to have some hardware to play with and relax with friends and do some scores at the same time.
Fun it was and hardware was good but time was our worst enemy.
We got the setup running well 1 hour before my flight home and I was not able to extend my stay.
There is no excuses..I was not able to push the setup as I wanted but we got at least some sort of result out and we had that small glimpse of fun that we used to have years a go.
We got a nice pile of nice hardware!
Then I tested each card separately on air and selected 5 best cards to be tested on LN2. All cards were easy to run 2050MHz+ separately. Insulation had to be good but removable and no vaseline or grease allowed. All cards went back to ASUS after event.
Drinks and food were perfect!
Then it was time to do some 4-way. Setup is very easy to handle with EK-SF3D 4 way table and fat EK-SF3D Critical point GPU pots.
So only real run we got through before I had to pack my stuff and leave was this:
It is not very satisfying result but who cares in the end. These scores and threads are forgot in few days and that is just the way it is.
This thread will be also my last for a long time if not forever.
There is just no more point to loose all the time in life to push scores which will please us overclockers. I feel very pleased and happy when I remember all the events and fun nights with my friends. Life just goes on and after these 12 years of overclocking I have nothing else to achieve. I got all I ever dreamed and even more.
We are really small community and we have been able to do amazing stuff in past years. Keep it that way.. all the stupid fights and rumours etc. are just not worth it. No one will be able to change how oc scene evolves and the changes in past 4 years have made it boring and stupid. That is my opinion and you don't need to mind about it if you disagree.
I thank all my cooperators and sponsors who made all this possible.
I thank specially Shamino who took me in to Foxconn OC project and Marcus Hultin - Kinc for taking care of me since 2007. Sami "macci" Mäkinen was the key for AMD stuff, thank you my friend!
Thomas Melzer from intel have been the key thing all these years, so big thanks to you too! Niko Tivadar from EK made the high quality pots possible, so thank you as well!
There are many many other guys but can not thank all separately.
Thanks to HWbot for great site and thanks for letting me be part of it so many years in crew (Pieter and Frederik).
Thanks to all of my friends all around the world. It is amazing to see how good people there are no matter where you are from.
I wish all the best to you all and have fun in life. Keep pushing it like Oliver would say!
