I freeze things.Ask me about vapor phase change if you have questions, I'm always around.
So I'm considering a more extreme cooling solution than a watercooling kit for my QX9650. I know that I'll be most likely building a custom cooler because the market kits are a tad expensive, and reportedly don't work too well with quads. I'm fine with that, as my engineering buddy and I are going to try to build something over break (insanity and hilarity will surely ensue).
Considering that there is a big issue with electromigration on the 45-nm chips at higher voltage (people's chips grant diminishing returns, even die after a matter of weeks/days), what effect will extreme cooling have? Can it prevent high vcores (>1.4v) from killing chips?
