This was posted a looooooong freakin time ago. But yeah since then that record has been shattered to pieces dude lol. Fugger hit 7.2GHz but only BIOS stable , he could get like 6.8GHz stable in windows though. You're out of date

Liquid nitrogen is seen all the time. That's how those 6800's got the world record in 3dmark05, that's how fugger hit 7.2GHz, that's how the AMD64 WR got 3.8GHz I believe, may have been triple cascade phase change, can't remember.

Believe the sempron WR OC is the same.

That is cool I never have heard of the nitrogen. Wouldnt have thunk it myself. What about dry ice ? Would it do a very good job at cooling ?

Dry Ice is another option (Dry Ice is just another form of Nitrogen isn't it?), but I believe Phase Change is more popular.

I honestly wouldn't care though, anything below freezing is fine with me.
