Title says it all. I know its already an over clocked fx-8450 but I just wandered if it could be over clocked further, with the right cooler, to achieve amazing speeds.

Legend has it that you can get it to 7.0Ghz with liquid nitrogen, and that if you do it will start glowing yellow and turn into an i5-4690k. So it's definitely worth a shot.

I think it already draws 200+ watts on it's own, requires a specialized PSU and motherboard, and you want to push it -further-???

I'll be looking for the mushroom cloud over your house if it goes a bit haywire... :)

I do not own one, nor do I plan to, it was more of a late night boredom question that I wondered what the fastest speed of a CPU was

If you have the right cooler and power I would go for it. As i like to say in my native tongue, "Te papa de la roupa. Tengo un pene pequeño." English: You only live once. Might as will live with the consequences.
