Over the next few pages you will see my overclocking and benchmarking results on the Results page; overclocking, insulating and cooling guides on the Guides page; my current undertakings on the Projects page (coming) and my background on the Biography page; as well as a gallery of my favourite hardware and memories (coming).

AMD gets back in the game, no more coldbug

See that frost around the CPU socket? That's the result of running the chip with a FULL pot of liquid nitrogen. Handling a coldbug free chip is as easy as topping up every 20 minutes, allowing you to focus on tweaking your machine and not having to worry that the temperature isn't within your target range. The only thing you need to double and tripple check is your insulation!


As you can see, once the insulation has been removed from the copper pipe, condensation and frost begin to form almost immediately. To the left you will see a pot which was kept at -196'c for several hours before being exposed to air. Any part of your system which is running below dew point will have condensation forming on it. While it is pure water and doesn't conduct electricity, dirt and other impurities on the components can and may possibly cause a short. It is therefore critical to be sure of your insulation before starting.

The chip was perfectly happy at the lowest temperature we could reach and would have easily run at a higher speed with more cold. If liquid helium can be sourced you'll see it here first.


As seen to the right, a full pot of liquid nirogen can hold temperatures with ease - the nitrogen is hardly bubbling. This picture was taken during a wprime run, a benchmark which stressed all four cores of the 5.4GHz+ Phenom 2 940 sitting below the pot. Unlike the original Phenom which was a phenominal failure, the Phenom 2 is a phenominal success.
