SC11 The Texas team captured a lot of attention at the Student Cluster Competition this year. Their mineral oil deep-fried cluster was certainly a hit with the crowd, but did it pay dividends when it came to computing? They put in the best non-GPU fueled LINPACK and, assumedly, should perform well on the scientific apps, but will it perform well enough to beat the other teams?

We spent a few minutes with them and kicked it around a bit. Oh, and there will be some more videos of their mineral oil experience coming up - so check back often......
