In addition to N460GTX-SE Cyclone 1GD5 Series, MSI also will announce N460GTX-SE-M2D1GD5/OC & N460GTX-SE-MD1GD5/OC for more options, which are equipped with 9cm PWM Fan (Shield Fan). These two items support over voltage function of GPU to improve overclocking capability, and adopt Military Class components for longer lifespan and better stability. These 2 models has the same cosmetic look and clockspeed. The only difference spotted is only the Video Output Function with the N460GTX-SE-MD1GD5/OC sporting an extra HDMI output.

MSI N480GTX Lightning on LN2 Pre-Testing

MSI N480GTX Lightning

Washing MSI N480GTX Lightning

It has been quite sometime since we had LN2 session on a VGA. If i recall correctly, the last round was coolice OverClocking his Gainward V-MODed 9800GT on LN2. So i guess it’s about time to polish up our skill on VGA LN2 OverClocking. But if you are reading this Overview, which i guess alot people doesn’t, this report is not about how high we could clock the VGA. The interesting part is that we insulated the VGA with vaseline, and WE WASH IT. We didn’t aim high for this session of LN2 OverClocking as the amount of LN2 was very limited (left over from the Kingston Power User Gathering). I believe we will be doing another round of LN2 on the MSI N480GTX Lightning end of the month. Hopefully in Lowyat Plaza, another OverClocking Demo. Seems like Year 2010 is an OverClocking year for Malaysia.

MSI-HWBot OC Marathon - When Intel and AMD tortured together

MSI-HWBot OC Marathon

It has been very long since i meet fellow local OverClockers to OverClock together. So last week i managed to loan some hardware from MSI Malaysia for our mini event. The idea is to do a HWBot OC Marathon. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out as we would like it to be. We had quite a handful of hardware to bench and submit to HWBot but we only have 1 day to do that. So minus some hardware/software problems, we only managed a few scores to be submitted. Too bad the recent concluded Gigabyte Mini Competition champion, xixo_12 couldn’t join us as he had to attend a oral test. And our beloved dblooi has some personal issue that day. But it couldn’t be blamed as it was kinda a very rush event. They were notified few days earlier only.

Event: MSI-HWBot OC Marathon                                                                                        Date: 1st August 2010                                                                                                           Location: Sanko’s Lair Participants: verdict, Lacus, SkyNoEye, Jonesy, Sanko Objective: Submit as many scores as possible to HWBot

Left to Right: Lacus, verdict. The rest were camera shy.
