This was a great showing by MSI as well. This record takes the spot previously held by HyperX. Both were using liquid nitrogen as the exotic cooling solution to keep the temperature low.
Kingpin Breaks The 3DMark Time Spy Record
Kingpin, one of the biggest names in overclocking managed to break a new world record in 3DMark Time Spy with an arrangement of four EVGA GTX 1080 Ti Kingpin cards which are his own brand.
