Discovering That Niche – Extreme Overclocking

While we have dabbled in overclocking to gain extra performance out of our Intel CPUs over the years, we never went hardcore into the process as the time/benefit ratio just did not fit our needs.

However, as with anything else, demonstrate a knack for something, make sure folks know about it, and it will get noticed.

We received an Intel Partner Program newsletter this afternoon that had a really neat bit on overclocking in it.


We have seen some of the overclocking results of “duck-san” before.

Some of his overclocking exploits can be found here:

That second link has some amazing overclocking results and visuals of the rigs that are used to get there.

So, what is so neat is to see that the efforts that Duck-san has put into overclocking processors has lead to him being featured at various technology events including the upcoming PAX West 2010 in Seattle Washington.

Duck-san is a very good example of how one’s hard work can pay off in possibly very unexpected ways.
