It seems like an eternity since I last reviewed a traditional air cooler here at TheOverclocker. Given the overwhelming success of AIO units in the medium to high end desktop markets, there’s perhaps no reason for any enthusiast to consider anything else.

Austrian tweaking specialists o.v.e.r.clockers.at today set a new world record in the renowned performance test PCMark05. Throughout the entire project, Noctua fans, CPU coolers and thermal compound played a key role.

During last Friday’s live event hosted by the Austrian SSD manufacturer Angelbird, o.v.e.r.clockers.at already managed to break the previous world record in Futuremark’s popular benchmarking suite PCMark05, but since their best CPU and motherboard fell victim to the extreme tweaking, the Austrian overclocking specialists failed to pass the 60,000 point mark.

Today, o.v.e.r.clockers.at set out to make another attempt, but US overclockers had topped their previous record overnight and pushed the bar to a breathtaking 62,759 points – more than the Austrian’s had hoped to achieve. Taking up the challenge nonetheless, o.v.e.r.clockers.at squeezed the absolute maximum out of their system. In the end, they came in at breathtaking 63,665 points and reclaimed the crown for the best PCMark05 score world-wide.
