My youtube channel is making some ground. After only 9 videos, I have totalled 50,000 views on my youtube videos. The bulk of the views are on my original dry ice overclocking video, The Phenomenal Dry Ice Experiment.
That video started out with a friend and I getting our hands on a Phenom II X4 955 chip and a Phenom II X4 ES. We really intended nothing big with the video, only a simple documentary of our first dry ice run ever. The community loved it, even though it is nothing close to the best overclocking out there (considering most 955’s hit over 5GHz on dry ice). We were noobs, enough said.
Backtracking to my very first video, we go back in time to my first Phenom II chip, the 940 X4. This was the original DDR2 revision of Phenom II, and was the first time we saw the architecture of Phenom IIdo amazing things. My first video involved me, messing around with cold air coming in through my bedroom window, cascading over my TRUE 120 and Phenom II X 940. I displayed the simplicity of overclocking the 940. I did not do any stability testing, however at the time, this was a good suicide overclock for the chip on air cooling. This video netted me nearly 15,000 views to date.
My next video was a tried, but rarely seen cooling method for overclocking. I dubbed this cooling “the slushbox“. This involved me using the H50 Corsair water cooler, and keeping the radiator fully submerged in a cooler filled with ice. The resulting cold got me down to around 10C temps on the CPU (even though the video shows 1C in coretemp, it is inaccurate). I clocked up my Phenom II X6 1090T 4900MHz on 1 core on the chip.
“|Second Frost|” Was one of my proudest moments. The Phenom II X6 1090T under dry ice coolingwas the feature presentation. I also showed clips of my DICE benching methodology (crushing DICE to powder form). I achieved some very good clocks and benchmark speeds. The reason i’m proud of this video, is that it landed on the front page of hwbot.org, and won me Contribution of the Month for November on overclock.net.
I’m looking to keep expanding my subscriber/viewer base. So please link your friends, or whoever will find my stuff interesting. Thanks for checking out my blog and all my videos.
