    I was down at the office on Monday to see what was happening! LN2 is pretty funky stuff - I had seen people use it in the past but never been hands on with it.

    Good work to the guys on the records and looking forward to making more records soon

    We've a ton of TV content coming up on this - maybe some of you might want to dabble in LN2 antics?

    Hi Guys

    First off i must say what a pleasure it was recording this show with HEXUS, they are truly professional in what they do and made me fell very welcome at there offices.

    It was a very long day but persistence and determination is the key in anything you do if you want to break any records, the day started off at 8am and we finished up at around 9pm that same night so it was a long day.

    Good coverage of all the kit that i was using and then some air testing before moving onto cooling the same hardware with LN2.

    Again this was a great day that i enjoyed very much, world records don't come alone that often especially when you are being filmed but i have had a good year and have had four records recorded by HEXUS TV now so i cant complain at all this year.

    I would also like to thank all my sponsors that supplied all the hardware, without you guys and your support none of this would ever be possible, so a big thank you from me for all your support thought the years.

    Anyway thanks again Guys it was great to work with you all again and look forward to many more shows and records in the coming years ahead.

    All the best to everyone.

    Regards
    Paul

    was good to meet you, and watch your skills.

    Patience is, ,quite litererally, a virtue, because that was a long day.

    Hat's off though, you nailed it

    Nice work indeed

    Slightly surprised you only need 1.55v to get to 5.2GHz though. I know it's not the point of the excercise but, out of curiosity, if that's enough for Super Pi how much more would you need to make it Prime stable?

    Out of curiosity, why not use that DFI board which ships with an LN2 cup for chipset cooling?
