Liquid Nitrogen boils away at extremely low temps so at room temp its going crazy. At these clocks I wonder what will happen to the system if it's left turned on when the last of the Nitrogen boils away. I remember back in the day with the old Athlon XP all you had to do was remove the HSF while the system was running for the processor to catch fire and burn up taking with it the mobo.

But yeah.. That six core is freaking awesome. I predict most people will be going to AMD because of the economy. 

Unless Obama's prediction that the economy is improving actually is true then I see AMD picking up more marketshare from Intel.

AMD really needs this to work. I really hope it works out.

Exactly.. They did the same thing to the Pentium 3 or was it 4 and they were playing Quake 3 and the Pentium just slowed down when they removed the HSF but kept running while the AMD CPU Burned.. Awesome videos. Those were weak clips for the HSF back in the day and say you moved your computer in your car or something and knocked your HSF loose your screwed.

i saw a similar video where a guy did pretty much the same thing with an i7-980x. all he did was up the multiplier to 31 for a speed of something crazy like 5ghz. throughout the video it's like a cloud over the mobo of n2, and he just keeps it in a thermos. pretty crazy.
