Even thought they just broke the 3DMark06 world record, our overclockers Kinc and crotale kept going. As if it wasn’t hard enough just to bench live, they also had to battle security guards just to get back to their rig. The area was namely ravaged by thieves during Thursday night and this resulted in more guards in the B hall, where the overclocking is held, and the entire ASUS booth was sealed off, but after some convincing words from Marcus, Robert and Thomas Melzer (from Intel) they were let inside of the barricade. A smart move it turned out to be as they managed to push their world record system to new heights.
