JayzTwoCents Gets Schooled in LN2 Overclocking by Vince ‘K|NGP|N’ Lucido

Many members of the tech media are familiar with overclocking to some degree. Motherboard and graphics card reviewers have to know how to tweak the BIOS to assess the basic overclocking ability of the product, sure. But how much else do they really know about the what lies beyond? Indeed the realm of extreme overclocking remains a mystery to many of the worlds tech savvy writers and YouTubers, a fact that actually makes it rather refreshing to see mainstream YouTube tech personality JayzTwoCents get schooled in the dark art of LN2 overclocking by no other than the legendary Vince ‘k|ngp|n’ Lucido.

Vince went back to his native US and paid a visit to Jayz studio to give him a full-on lesson in LN2 overclocking with the EVGA GTX 1080Ti Kingpin Edition card. Vince introduces the design of the card and how it is designed specifically for extreme overclocking. The VRM is capable of keeping pace with some incredibly high clocks that could end up in a power delivery of up to 1,200 watts. Hence the need for two PSUs in the lab. Vince starts off with a lesson in what you actually need to push GPUs on LN2. He introduces the LN2 pots, the voltage and heat monitoring gear and several pieces of the puzzle to Jay including the Inferno Heater which helps keep certain parts of the board from icing up. Steep learning curves for sure.

Among other things, what follows is a step by step guide to insulating the right components in the right way, how to mount the LN2 pot on the card and lots of detailed advice about how Vince sets up his rig in preparation for a real sub-zero benching session. Finally, the LN2 makes an appearance and the pair start filing flasks (plus a great intro as to why you shouldn’t wear gloves or socks). Jay does eventually get hands on and starts pushing both CPU and GPU, with an LN2 flask in hand of course. There’s even a flirt with a new Time Spy World record.

I’m sure that there are folks out there who would prefer the art of LN2 overclocking stay in the esoteric shadows of darkened man caves around the globe. Personally, I think its great to see a more mainstream media platform try out some genuine LN2 overclocking with one of the game’s biggest stars.

So where are the premium overclockers haters from the previous Jay thread, that shoot on the red cross.
I saw nobody here complaining now Tin is in it, bravo premium behavior!

Btw nice content from both Evga, Tin and Jay! :)

Don't want to be the guy that ruins this but I find the above a bit c0cky/upsetting/ignorant. :)

You benched stuff with the help of a pro, who is one of the top of all time. Had access to xoc bios (99% of the people out there don't), probably all the sw part ready and benched a fresh benchmark which doesn't give points (yet) at hwbot (less attractive compared to others).

Gj for the general effort tho

I feel like we are being pranked...

Bulgaria I.nfraR.ed says:

Yeah, me too. With all the adickted, cumming and the taste in his mouth...
Perhaps Allen is joking with us again*? :D

*Remember Max the overclocker?

United States Splave says:

You mean MaxOC? I think that was XA but anyways.

Glad we are getting a wider audience! So cool :)

Ah, maybe. Was fooled by your avatar. It turns out you're just a fan :D.

Greece OGS says:

thought so as well but couldn't help myself from responding either way :D

Looks like you're right, it's just some grown up little brat with nothing better to do than being a dickhead.

It took much more than what i expected, clap!

New fans ? :))) At least those t-shirts look better on the model. I should design some stuff with my nickname,oh wait....it's already done :D. Indeed cocky attitude but i don't think he cares about our opinions (or hwbot) ,hence the reply he gave. Good luck on the next ln2 sessions,break a leg ...or how was that saying ?

More like Vince's record.

Germany der8auer says:

lol why is everyone in this thread so salty? Be happy that XOC is getting more attention from media like him. If only one guy who watches the video gets into our hobby it's already a win.

United States yosarianilives says:

I think YT is a great way to bring people in and it definitely works. Just today I mentioned XOC in r/AMD on reddit and someone mentioned that since seeing Buildzoid's vids he was wanting to know the best way to get into XOC. So having more XOC presence on YT definitely helps to further the hobby, even if it's on an XOC "n00b's" channel.

United States bigblock990 says:

I think the video is absolutely great. I also think that jays comment here is very stupid.

I really doubt that's actually Jayz2cents, but yeah whoever it is, is being a bit *silly*.

That's exactly how i see things. It's a chance for tech hardware fan's to know XOC community and how fun and enjoyable extreme overclocking it can be.

Nice DUET ))) Jay goes to the next level, hope to see on his channel new extreme overclocking video :)
P.S is it possible to watch in 1080p ?

I think he's gone guys coast is clear :D
