    Impressive stuff.

    Just do a 24hour prime 95 test now and then we can call it useful.

    To be deemed useful it would also need to be with Phase Change or Waterchiller cooling, no LN2 cooled setup could ever be practical enough to be called "useful"!

    How about a lower o/c using water cooling - maybe use an oil drum full of snow as a cold sink. At least this'd be a way to use the cold white stuff that we've got in abundance at the moment ...

    Interesting (to me at least) that the article seem to be saying that the modern processors are more difficult to subject these kind of extreme o/c's to.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    It does seem that way. I think it's also the fact that modern chips have many more transistors and tend to operate in bigger thermal envelopes than the older CPUs, as well as the fact that you've got more cores.

    remember also, we are only really just catching up with the stock speeds of the last of the p4's. quick look around shows the p4@7.1 was a 3.8 part.

    why do they pour the ln2 over the cpu, they do make ln2 pumps as they use them in cryogenics ect but i gess they aint cheap.

    No need really... convection currents mean the hot stuff will rise, leaving the coldest material at the bottom. The hottest parts will turn to gas and float away, so you can refill with more cold LN2.

    Pretty impressive but this just makes me wonder what sandy bridge will do under a nice big liquid nitrogen pot ok bulldozer as well

    Yet just a single core from any current generation even clocked much lower would thrash it, remember its not all about the MHz, instructions per cycle as in how much is done per MHz is way more important that overall speed in MHz alone.
