    Tom's Hardware Guide managed to overclock it to just over 3 GHz using water cooling, I guess it would be possible to overclock to 3675MHz (since they are using liquid nitrogen!!!!!!). But it does state that the highest stable freq was only a pathetic 3650MHz [​IMG]

    By using such a solution, however, you would incredibly lower the lifespan of surrounding components, as any warming factor would result in fragility of the product.

    In other words: no one would do this for a day-to-day use, it's a neat experiment only.

    Hey guys, did you ever wonder about all that frost and condensation on the mobo the Liquid Nitrogen would have made? Water + Running Mobo = BAD

    Nick,

    I think that was just the liquid Nitrogen that froze on the mobo. I don't think it was water.

    But I could be wrong...
