    Very powerful. How is it cooled and for how long will the chip survive ? :confused:

    A good point cybercore.. Running at that speed the life of the cpu would be greatly reduced... ;)

    Totally agree...

    Don't they say that a chip should last for 10yrs or so? Obviously running it faster or beyond the manufacturers spec is going to change the parameters some what..

    Do you think such a fast setup with industrial grade air cooling would work so as to rig it up to air conditioning to warm the house...thus being more eco friendly? :rolleyes:
