Special Shots:

Of course, everyone gets those special shots when they attend events like these. So here are my prized pictures that were taken at the tournament. First up are my shots with the Gigabyte staff. The staff worked very hard to make us comfortable and keep us informed every step of the way. My thanks go out to Angela Lan and her team.

 

 

 

I also want to thank Bosco for picking up the tab and putting me up at the Pacific Palms Resort to attend the tournament. The room was awesome and had a killer view from my private balcony. Thanks Boss.

 

 

 

Finally, I have two shots from the competition which I though were the coolest. First two shots are of the LN2 vapors engulfing the table and the temperature of the CPU. It is a sight to see that cover a computer system and still have it running as if nothing was on it. I am still amazed that a liquid that can instantly freeze a flower can keep a computer operating at -178.6 degrees Celsius.

 

 

For all of you who like anomalies and video, I have two clips I want to share. The first one is of Chris's system where you can see the LN2 vapors pouring out of his CPU duct. The second one is of Mark's monitor during his top 3DMark06 run. He pushed his shader clocks all the way to 2400MHz and it caused artifacting to occur in the benchmark. Surprisingly, it did not crash the test like he expected and brought him a killer score.
