I just read an article that showed an AMD processor being overclocked to 6.5GHz using a brand new cooling system. Does anyone know how close this is to being introduced to the public.

It never will be. Someone overclocked it using the same methods that they've been using to break 6GHz for years now. There is nothing new about that link, but for the fact that someone did it with a quad this time.

The AMD Phenom II X4 processors were overclocked to a whopping 6.5 GHz with the aid of a brand new cooling system which uses a combination of liquid nitrogen and liquid helium.

Both are very dangerous to handle if you do not know how to properly and both are only temporary (they evaporate quickly so the systems running them need quite a bit in order to run long enough for a benchmark). So I cannot see this sort of a solution going retail.

I agree here. The standard cooling that you will find at this time is basic Liquid cooling.

I would hardly call liquid cooling the standard.

And according to the video, they used 500L of liquid helium, which I'm assuming has to be fairly expensive, to provide 90 minutes of cooling. Not exactly cost efficient, especially for mainstream retail.

I seem to recall an IBM processor where the standard clock was 120-ish GHz. But it was cooled with liquid helium too, and it was abandoned because the cost was too high.

On a side note, has anyone tried this sort of thing with an i7 965?

Nevermind the fact that if you stay there long enough you would probably asphyxiate.

I don't know about you, but from my perspective the majority of the PC consumer market don't know shit about liquid cooling and are quite content with their stock fans.

Yes. the WR on an I7 is 8ghz. Im too lazy to find a link, but you can find it on hwbot.org

Bout $5.00 a liter if I recall chemistry class correctly.... We have fun with liquid helium and nitrogen.

So, they spent roughly $2,500 on the cooling alone........for 90 minutes

I'd rather have an insanely powerful 17" laptop for that amount.=p
