World-famous overclocker, Vince “Kingpin” Lucido has managed to annihilate the previous top Fire Strike Extreme benchmark record. The overclocker managed to obtain an impressive score of 40,115, which not only makes it the highest score ever achieved, but also the first to break the 40,000-point barrier.
To achieve such eye watering Fire Strike Extreme benchmark scores, Kingpin used four Pascal-based Titan Xs, which were cooled with liquid nitrogen. Interestingly, each of the Titan X graphics cards were overclocked to 2,200MHz; 669MHz more than the ‘stock’ boost clock speed of the graphics card.
Of course, the record-breaking benchmark score wouldn’t be achieved without help from components other than the graphics cards. According to sources, Kingpin used an LN2-cooled Intel Core i7-6950X, which apparently was overclocked to 5,227MHz. In addition, Kingpin’s system also consisted of an EVGA X99 FTW K motherboard, 32GB of G.Skill DDR4 RAM, and a 1600W EVGA power supply.
Kingpin’s score of 40,115 is nothing short of miraculous, especially when one considers the fact that the top three overclockers on HWBot’s Hall Of Fame are also using four Pascal-based Titan Xs.
