OverClocking 3.2GHz AMD Processor to 6GHz using Liquid Nitrogen !


I get excited everytime I hear the words liquid nitrogen. My uncle managed to get his hands on some and I'm glad he used it for the right things – overclocking!

Finally found a local source for LN2 so he decided to put his new Phenom 955 to the test last weekend.

Test setup:
  1. AMD Phenom II X4 955BE O913APBW
  2. Asus M4A79T Deluxe Bios Ver.1303
  3. Crucial Value DDR3 1333 2 x 1GB @ 1600 7-7-7-24
  4. Corsair HX1000W PSU
  5. Seagate 7200.12 500GB
  6. Gigabyte 7200GS 256MB
This is how he took the 3.2 GHz AMD Phenom II 955 X4 BE to – 6GHz.

  1. Awesome overclock. Well done. That's the highest I have seen anyone get a Phenom to. We are having an LN2 sleeve made next week & will try this some of this in our lab at DCA Computers. See if we can get near your results.
