Are Kingpin cards the best? *firestrike score*

Bit8xPr0

This user with the name KINGPIN has the highest score on 3DMARK he runs the Combined test with an average of 61FPS that's freaking insane dude! He can run that test fluidly on a 60hz monitor http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6887254

 

What's the story behind KINGPIN and what makes them better then everything else?

i5 4590 @ Stock, XFX R9 290!, HyperX Beast 4x8GB  @1600, 850 EVO 120gb, WD Caviar Blue 1TB, , Asrock H97m Pro 4 , Fractal Design Define R4, Windows 10

So on these benchmarks does this guy dip his cards in freaking Dry Ice or something?

Kingpin was overclocking long before his name got on cards.

Kingpin is with some other guys the best OCers for GPUs in the world and he uses exclusively EVGA as sponsor. He promotes the cards and breaks world records with GPU OCing.

He starts with every GPU gen with EVGA´s Classified card(s) and then down the road this card gets more refined and sold as the 'Kingpin' edition, which holds a binned chip with a guaranteed certain ASIC, the more you pay the better it gets. All those results are achieved through LN2. If you want to be top OCer world wide water cooling doesn´t do and phase changing isn´t good enough either.

Doesn it mean the Kingpin is the best OCing card out of the box? No, because it runs just on air. No comparison to full custom water cooling, and there´s also a problem with full water blocks for cards like the KIngpin edition. They aren´t sold in large quantities so the water block manufacturers do not offer those blocks or way later. So if you want to OC and you don´t want to spend all the coin on LN2, which is BTW not made for every day cooling, but just for mere benchmarking, then you´d be better off with a GPU that supports a custom waterblock such as EKWB offer them, and cool and OC with water. BTW a performance custom loop isn´t cheap either, but more affordable than LN2, and you can use it 24/7.

Liquid nitrogen overclocking is how it happens. @Lays does it because he need a epeen basically. there is no real point to this other than to be top of a leader board.
