Uncorking KELPER - practical guide for beginners. - kingpincooling.com
Kingpin (k|ngp|n) is known for various modifications of EVGA graphics cards. By unleashing their real potential he breaks GPUs overclocking records on hwbot. It was said earlier that Kingpin will do his best to reach 2 GHz core clock with EVGA card. It seems that he is only 42 MHz short to break this barrier.

Such an extreme overclocking requires very efficient cooling, that’s why Kingpin used LN2 for this job. He was able to run 3DMark11 Performance Preset test to reach 15731 points. Benchmark rig was equipped with Intel Core i7-3930K overclocked to 5605 MHz, and also 16GB of DDR3 memory. Most important part was EVGA non-reference card which was overclocked to 1958 MHz for core and 3734 MHz for memory (that’s effective 14936 MHz).

He promised to do his best to reach 2GHz core clock and as we see he’s not very far from that.

Have a look what kind of modifications are necessary to reach such clocks:
