Default MSI GTX 275 Lightning Shatters World Records on LN2

Once in a while, a high-end video card lands on my test table; in most cases just to overclock on air cooling without even the most simple voltage modifications. This time however we put the card under LN2 and found out this is a golden sample within the Lightning series. Is it the fastest running NVIDIA GPU ever?

depends on how you look at it; NVIDIA "reference" dictates 650Mhz GPU; MSI version comes with pre-OC at 700Mhz. So "stock" it's not quite 100% OC, but compared to reference, it surpasses 100% OC; which is quite rare for VGA cards. Mostly only a few low end cards achieve this (7300 GT, 2400 XT etc), almost never higher end. (edit: had to add almost)

If I can run 1400/1435 again in combination with a 5.1GHz cpu ... 21k should be possible!

Out of the box overclocking aint THAT great though considering it comes with voltage mods and an aftermarket cooler.

MSI actually also confirms this: on air cooling it's not an insane card, but it has been built for extreme overclocking.
