I found few photos of my second LN2 experience. I was there with few friends from Czech hardware forum, no one of us had experience with LN2 OC and we had also 3 daily "highend" computers cooled by aircooling.

 

It was fun, bad I did so many mistakes... At isolation setup, at fans (In reality it was intake airflow directly to the board :), no outtake airflow) First experience with coldbug (WTF is it, I thought that time, very bad control of CB issues)

But overall, it was fun and I saw in my hands few 6 GHz runs at Phenom II and crazy scores with 980X also.

I think my first time with LN2 was during an Awardfabrik session which I think was around 2007/2008.

My first LN2 rig with my first LN2 container. I'm not sure but I think it was E4300 and 8800 GTS in SLI :D

I cant believe my first time was 2014, it seems so much longer, it's basically when I really started overclocking. I like to pretend I have been doing it for a long time but not really.

 

These are my first and second sessions 780 ti kpe, with cpu on water just because I really only cared about benching the gpu to see how high I could get the clocks to go. Had just heard about hwbot in 2014.

I've started with this hobby on air in early 2000s, but it wasn't until 2005 until I had my first subzero experience. Stuck around on 939 for a while until migrating to 478 and 775/C2D for what feels like forever.

That's how insulation and pots looked back in the day before things got really professional :D

So, it's time for the young (maybe too young) part of hwbot to go extreme. A couple weekends back i had the chance to overclock alongside Phi and Sofosl, and damn it was a great experience. Learned a lot of new things, from ocing till ln2 handling... The vent was the " Greek League of Legends Finals" for 2017.

PS: too bad most of the 1st AOCM picture thread is dead because we all used shitty free hosters back then but if interested, I can try to recover some backups from older articles of AwardFabrik from 2007-2010 :)
