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:

AMD’s own Pete Hardman and Sami Makinen were able to overclock an AMD Phenom II to a blazing 6.5GHz, at an operating temperature of –230 degrees Celsius using liquid nitrogen and liquid helium as their cooling agents.

I got liquid nitrogen but don't know where to get liquid helium. :D
