GAMING ON Ln2?

Is such a thing even possible? thinking.gif

Yes it is! bigeyedsmiley.png

At the UK N2OC meet next weekend we will be hosting our weekly game night live from the event. We will be doing the usual live casting of the benching that's going on, only mixing it up with a some gaming on a cranked 4770K (Running around 6Ghz) paired with a Gigabyte Z87X-OC motherboard and AMD R9 290X Graphics card.

We're planning on checking out performance in Battlefield 4, Dota 2 and of course, a quick go at Crysis! The event will be broadcast on the 14th and 15th of December on Twitch.tv/overclocktvbenching and the Overclock.net homepage with the Gaming Demo starting around 6pm on the Saturday.

For details on the Ln2 meet and how to attend, see the official thread here - And for details on our weekly Game Nights, view the thread here

Things to bring! (Click to show)

You will need to bring everything you need to get benching, bar Ln2. That includes a multi-gang extension lead, Monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc etc. If you're unsure of anything or are missing something, ask in the thread and see if someone can help.

Below is a little checklist compiled by Hobiecat just in case. www.overclock.net/t/1250640/recommended-items-for-extreme-benching-toronto-event-checklist

For those of you who are already accustomed to extreme cooling I'm sure you already know what to bring, but this can still serve as a reminder, and for those of you who are new to extreme cooling this can be a good place to start.

Lets start with the obvious:


  • CPU / GPU pot


  • Thermal paste (something that doesn't freeze, like GC Extreme or Ceramique)


  • Thermometer with k-type probes (usually not required for AMD benching)


  • Thermoses (3 thermoses / person is usually a good number, but you can get away with using 2)


Insulation:
  • LET (liquid electrical tape)
  • Artist Eraser
  • Neoprene
  • Armaflex / Frost King
  • Painters Tape
  • Shop Towels / Paper Towels
  • Vaseline

You certainly don't need to use all of the insulation that I listed, those are just some of the most commonly used forms of insulation. For a good insulation guide, see xxbassplayerxx's guide here: http://www.overclock.net/t/839959/bassplayers-insulation-guide-lots-of-images/0_50


Other:

  • Digital Multi Meter (very useful for monitoring voltages, especially on volt-modded GPU's)
  • Torch / heat gun (For the Toronto event only bring torches, because heat guns draw too much power)
  • Soldering Iron (for those who are using volt-modded GPU's)
  • Pliers and Screwdrivers
  • Duct Tape
  • Hex keys / Torx
  • Adapters (SATA / molex)
  • Power cords (PSU/Monitor)

More useful tips:

1: Know your hardware


Get to know your bios, your vmods, overclocking limits, ram timings, etc before you go




2: Have your installs prepared ready.


Have a fresh install of all the Operating Systems you are going to use ready on your disks, with drivers and benching software ready to go.


Backup installs are always a good idea,in case of corruption for those with extra hdd's available




3: Insulate your motherboard/s and gfx cards


Get your motherboards and cards ready in advance, this will save a lot of precious time during the event




4: Plan your bench session in advance.


Know what benchmarks you will run and in what order and prepare accordingly, e.g. Go for highest CPU frequency first and get to know your CB/CBB limit, then move on to Spi 1m, Pifast, Wprime 32m etc and prioritise the benches that are important to you,and those that will be of greatest advantage to you and the team.




5: Backup your hardware


If possible bring some backup motherboards and CPUs with you to the event incase the worst happens, you dont want to be stuck with dead components with a plentiful supply of LN2 available to play with.


If anyone has any more suggestions, feel free to speak up.

Also, for everyone who is attending the Toronto Event with the intent of benching, I thought that this thread could serve as a way of coordinating what everyone is bringing. This would help to cut down on the number of things to bring for those people who are travelling from far away.

Looking for a new manufacturer now because of the time constraints at Centrax, I have the CAD files here ready to go. Shopping around so It's a possibility... I will make sure there's a spare if you want to pinch one.
