Take a 6.14GHz Core-i7 990X, mix it with an ASUS Rampage III Extreme and a 1.5GHz clocked ASUS GeForce GTX 580 Direct CU II, then swirl in a load of LN2.

What do you get?

45,819 3DMarks and a new world record! That’s with a single graphics card!

3DMark Vantage Overclocking

Proof of the new world record

Kinc and elmor from Sweden broke the world record last weekend using this hardware and some manual volt-mods of their own. Complementing hardware include some kick-ass Kingston HyperX 2133 CL8, a top of the range Antec 1200W OC TP and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit to top it all off.

You can see a picture of the setup here:

In fact, the ASUS GeForce GTX 580 Direct CU II seems to the the weapon of choice for many overclockers, as the top five slots are all held by this one card:

That’s not all from these guys though, because this weekend they are going for a new record with four of them in 4-way SLI! Keep an eye on how things take off over at Xtreme Systems.
