Liquid Nitrogen Keeps Overclocked 5GHz CPU from Cooking

Illustration for article titled Liquid Nitrogen Keeps Overclocked 5GHz CPU from Cooking

Chances are you won't be seeing this kind of action from your friend's overclocked system, but the crew at Universal ABIT showed off a Core 2 Extreme X6800 CPU overclocked from 2.93GHz to 5GHz. The CPU was churning out Pi calculations while keeping cool with liquid nitrogen. The purpose was to show off their new AB9 QuadGT motherboard (and how cool liquid nitrogen can make your PC look).

I remember reading an article a few years back about a guy who built a system submerged in a non-conductive fluid that had liquid nitrogen piped through it. For the time, I believe it was over clocked some redonkulous amount.

Here is a link to one kind of like that, but doesn't use the nitrogen.
