GALAX TecLab OC Team Breaks Multiple World Records with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090

With the release of NVIDIA’s flagship RTX 40 GPU, reviewers and board partners finally got permission to share custom-designed test results. One is the GALAX SG (Serious Gaming) model, which is a budget card.

A Brazilian TecLab OC team spent an entire night tweaking and overclocking this model to break as many world records as possible. Even with limited monster availability and time constraints, it looks like they’ve at least accomplished several things.

For starters, they are one of the first to fully customize the PCB for their overclocking sessions. In order to install the liquid nitrogen pot, the layout of the board had to be changed significantly. For example, this required the displacement of some capacitors to the other side. In addition, TecLab had to remove the power-limiting controller, add multiple voltage probes, and house the GPU in sub-zero temperatures.

GALAXY RTX 4090 SG operates at 3.075 GHz with the standard (quad-fan) cooler without any modifications. The OC team was able to reach 3,450 GHz with their modification. Due to the extremely sensitive circuitry of the GPU, which hates low voltages and temperatures below -100°C, performance degradation can be observed at this point. Team member Ronaldo Boussali, who provided the results, confirms that they have broken five world records with a Core i9-12900KS processor, DDR-5400 memory and Corsair 1600W power supply.

These world records are just the beginning for TecLab and other extreme overclocking teams. We’re yet to see even more powerful RTX 4090 variants like the Galax HOF series, which should pack in even more power thanks to their upgraded power sections and pre-thrown Ada chips.
