[citation][nom]sandeepb[/nom]No way 1.537v to get to 5.6Ghz, You sure about that? I want his chip lol[/citation]

I wonder if his choice of gpu played a roll. The 4350 would consume very little wattage leaving more power resources for the CPU.

Here is a link to a youtube video of some people in Los Vegas on 1/10/09. They ran 3DMark 05 and got a score of over 45,000 and Overclocked it to 6.5 GHZ. They used Liquid Helium. http://www.youtube.comwatch?v=wB0JodKgZ0A.
They used the Phenom II 940 and broke the world record.

I wonder where a person purchases a big tank of liquid nitrogen like that?! Like what kind of permits would you need?

Get a credit account at a welding supply company or any AirGas business and you too can play with liquid nitrogen :)

renting the tank is about $50 a month and filling the tank is about $200 each fill, I went through 3 of these tanks ( one a day ) to get the 5.6GHz on the MAD Phenom II 940BE and tune it stable enough to reach the above scores.

Interesting...

I may just look into this for fun, I don’t want a jumbo tank like that, but just a little would be fun to play with.

I'm sure his insurance company would love to see a blow-torch and huge bottle of liquid nitrogen in his place....
