Blast from the past, TeamAU guys compete in GOOC2009 Aussie finals!

Here’s a blast from the past. Back in 2009, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) did a TV program about overclocking and followed dinos22 in his journey to qualify for GOOC 2009 (Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championship).

The awesome part was seeing all the other competitors were from TeamAU. T_M, Deanzo, bob(nz) and dinos22 were the four guys that made it to the finals. Dinos22 won the final and chose Deanzo as his partner in crime to compete at the regional final in Thailand.

TeamAU destroy 3DMark Vantage and FireStrike-E records

Youngpro was was invited for the 4th successive year to overclock on the G.Skill booth. G.Skill has established a reputation as having the most impressive overclocking booth and this year was no different.

This year we had a specific target; To grab the 2 records we were missing, 3DMark Vantage and 3Dmark Firestrike Extreme. 

Records fall live on stage

Elmor and Coolice from ASUS teamed up with pro to create a new 3DMark Vantage world record live on the G.Skill stage.

3DMark Vantage 99045
4 ASUS R9 290X cards at 1385 MHz core, liquid nitrogen cooled
ASUS X79 Rampage Black Edition
G.Skill TridentX 2666C10 memory
G.Skill SSD
Antec HCP 1200 power supplies

The end result was over 99,000 in 3DMark Vantage and a new world record. Equally as impressive was just over 24,000 in 3DMark Firestrike, only 18 points behind the record at the time.

During Firestrike we were also able to extract 1445 MHz from the graphics cards, very crazy clocks for the AMD 290X cards in 4-way.

The rag continues...

After the Computex week finished we attended the HWBOT Computex Gathering event, where the "rag" continued.

TeamAU's own pro and SniperOZ teamed up with 8Pack and Coolice to smash the 3DMark Firestrike Extreme record on livestream. This took 2 days solid work, from individually testing the cards, to slowly building them up in a 4-way configuration, the end result was magic.

K|NGP|N and Galaxy had both broken the record earlier in the week made which made it even more special. A very proud moment for all of us, this was the only 3D record we didn't hold.

3DMark Firestrike Extreme 25300 Marks
4x ASUS Matrix 780TI cards at 1700 MHz core, 2000MHz memory
Der8auer raptor slim GPU pots, liquid nitrogen cooled - The best GPU slims on the market
ASUS X79 Rampage Black Edition
G.Skill TridentX 2666C10 memory
G.Skill SSD
Antec HCP 1300 power supplies

Big shout outs to Coolice, without his consistent advice and support this score would never be possible.

The whole session was captured on livestream by Overclocking-TV, you can catch the entire 6 hours of footage here, the magic happens in the last hour or so. Click the image below to view the stream.

As of this moment TeamAU currently holds all the 3D global records, now we can rest!
