AMD and LN2

Yesterday’s afternoon and today I had a LN2 trip with two AMD setup.
I was aiming to break the 7 GHz wall with the trusty Phenom II 955 B.E. and improve my precedent results on socket 939 with the Opteron 148.
I failed in reaching 7 GHz with the 955, tho I managed to improve just a little bit my Super-pi 1M score…still not satisfied with it but it is better than nothing.
Also got the time to play with UCbench in which I got quite easily the first place on the bot in the 955 B.E. category.

Here comes the funny part, AMD socket 939.
Still the same stuff as the precedent posts, except for the cooling method.

I’m not done but the dewar is completly empty, too bad I didn’t had enough LN2 to do the king of all benchmarks: Super-PI 32M.
Will do it the next time hoping to finally break this damn 21 minutes wall.

Cheers
