EVGA has been showing off a new way to indulge in extreme LN2 overclocking. The new cooling system uses technology and techniques borrowed from the worlds of AiO liquid coolers and from, of course, the worlds of extreme LN2 overclocking. Already this automated system has accrued five overclocking world records in 3DMark (Fire Strike and Time Spy tests).
Veteran overclocker KINGPIN and overclocker TIN worked together on this extreme cooling project at EVGA's lab. Roboclocker is the result of ideas that have been in gestation for nearly seven years. KINGPIN says he was inspired to finally put theory into hardware after approx 17 years of overclocking feats and competitions. He sat down with TIN and drafted the plans to create the Roboclocker and initially the duo created a manually controlled device to take the physical effort out of LN2 overclocking. Interestingly, TIN's first working controller was based around a Mortal Kombat arcade control panel.
Once the mechanical controller worked it was time to take the man out of the equation and let the computer decide how to control the various aspects of LN2 overclocking. The result is that the automated LN2 cooling system, Roboclocker, thanks to the way it works and its 'closed loop' nature, "uses a lot less LN2".
Summing up the promise of Roboclocker, KINGPIN said "The old way just doesn't beat it. Everything evolves, and this is a great evolution in extreme overclocking." As mentioned in the intro, this machine has already broken five single card VGA records and it pretty surely will be gaining further merits in coming weeks and months. The EVGA team hope to develop Roboclocker further so it is almost plug-n-play.
