    Cool AMD Phenom II Overclocked to 6.5GHz!

    AMD finds a way that they can still beat Intel!

    AMD Phenom II Overclocked to 6.5GHz
    Author: James Anderson

    During CES a group of overclockers with access to liquid nitrogen and liquid helium for the extra boost of coldness cools an AMD Phenom II X4 chip to -232 degrees Celsius. Once they got the chip cooled to this frigid temperature, they pushed the clock speed all the way up to 6.5GHz, which is a world record for a quad core CPU and they dished out and astonishing 45,474 3DMark05 score!

    Very impressive.Haha I knew it was DFI mobo used for that

    BUT you know what my gripe is with nitrogen or helium?

    They are TEMPORARY.

    YOu OC is good for however long the coolant lasts.

    You cant run a rig 24/7 that way.

    Which Is why imho phase change is the way to go,of course if you can afford it

    Not really, the word is expensive. the liquid Helium especially. AMD layed out a small fortune for that show.

    Cold booting at -240C. Unreal!
