MikeCDM (XOC) Takes Overall #1 PCMark05 Live At OCN N20C

MikeCMD, based in the USA and member of the top overclocking team Pure, has managed to secure the top spot in the PCMark05 benchmark this weekend. He accomplished this feat at OCN N2OC, a live overclocking event organised by Overclock.net in Farmington, Missouri. Powered by a Core i7 3770K, the ASRock Z77 OC Formula and only two Samsung 840pro SSDs combined with an Acard ramdisk, he outscored Mat from Austria by about one thousand six hundred (1,600) points. The new overall top score for PCMark05 is 65,255 points.

The OCN N2OC overclocking gathering is, just like the AwardFabrik & Friends gathering, an event set up by the community. Moparman's (a member of Overclock.net) computer shop, B&C Computers, in Farmington, a serious line-up of overclockers benched from Friday the 12th at around 7:00 PM CST all the way through Sunday the 14th. With a liquid nitrogen supply of 1,260L there was plenty of juice to make the systems run as fast as possible. As the without any doubt tired but satisfied spirits of the overclockers get back to daily business, we are waiting for the first pictures to be posted in the forums.

As for MikeCDM's record, it is nice to see an extreme enthusiast take a number one spot. PCMark05 is not an easy benchmark to master and the work and dedication that goes into a run cannot (but definitely will be) underestimated. Well done!

Nice one Mike. Also worth mentioning, he pwn3d me in 3dm01 at the event, and was QUOTEd as saying "beating you was better than taking the 4x WR". lol

Thanks guys, it was a blast too but very frustrating. On the first night it was nothing but fail and F-bombs. For some reason my power strip had another power strip daisy chained to it and after hours of trying to get it to work, it finally starts going and then we tripped the power strip. Massman, every one seems to like the DMM stand thing. It's a dominoes stand using cheap $6 DMM i got at frys and they're velcro'd to it.

Awesome run Mike!!! You worked hard for that one. Lol, sorry about the power strip and your fan. I'll pour ln2 for you anytime, just leave the 4k rpm fans away from my fingers :p

Sick 05 run Mike, it is nice to see some subzero benchers at the top of this bench again, and not the script kiddies on air:p
