TeamAU boys (deanzo, dinos22, sniperoz & deanzo) just finished the latest GIGABYTE Extreme OC workshop in Brisbane. Eva2000 also made a brief appearance on the first day. It was a really fun event in which enthusiasts from Brisbane were passed over control of some seriously souped up rigs running 7Ghz+ with AMD Bulldozer and GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 motherboards.
Kudos to AMD, GIGABYTE, CORSAIR, UMART and Atomic mag for backing the event.
I knocked up a guide for GIGABYTE X79 boards to help with some initial learning experience of the platform, hope it helps .
Eva2000 is getting back into hardware after a bit of a break. Here is what he’s up to this time.
Intel Sandy Bridge-E LGA2011 based cpus and X79 chipset based motherboards are nearly here. Here’s some preview photos of Gigabyte X79-UD5 motherboard. For more Gigabyte X79-UD5 photos visit the forums.
ATOMIC Magazine is taking on registrations right now for lucky 16 overclockers that get to learn how to OC from TeamAU. Rest of registrations that miss out will go into audience registrations .
Do you want to learn the ins and outs of extreme, sub-zero overclocking? Do you want to learn from the best overclockers that Australia has to offer? Do you live in Brisbane?
Well, it’s soon going to be your lucky day!

As we mentioned yesterday, Dino, one of our in-house Overclocking gurus, was in attendance last weekend at the London International Technology Show in the UK. While we knew that Dino had been turning on the style doing some live audience overclocking, what we didn’t know until a few hours ago is that, on Sunday he actually managed to get perilously close to some world records, hitting 8150MHz on LN2 using our GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 board!
Ok, so the world record is slightly higher, but those guys had the pick of a big bunch CPU-wise, plus they were using Liquid Helium (theoretical low temp of -269 °C), not Liquid Nitrogen (-196 °C). Huge kudos to Dino for his efforts during a live public show. This puts Dino 9th in the world for CPU frequency ranking, 3rd for FX-81350 ranking. Outstanding work.
