I was reading a maxpc book and it mentioned liquid nitrogen cooling being a short experimental overclocking technique. Why is it short term, if you use a closed loop and compressor, shouldn't that be better at long term. I know have condensation is an insue but if you can solve that, what are the other problems of LN overcllock. Myself and my friend who isn't into computer much was wondering about that.

Uh, you need to keep that shit extremely pressurized if it's not going to evaporate. I don't even know what kind of tubing it would require, it'd have to be so strong. Think "ticking time bomb."

I feel it's more of a hardware issue more than the cooling actually. A 3.0Ghz will only run at 5Ghz for so long, and should be considered a temporary situation.

Those with LN are aiming for the hills, while water and air dudes can be considered moderate...and more long term because of this.
