He wasn't entirely wrong. There is a reason you don't see those runs with LHe done on Intel chips.... That's because the vast majority of them have what's known as a coldbug. There are some Gulftowns (980x - 990x) that don't have one, or at least not one found with LN2 temperatures, but as far as I know no one has tried one of those with LHe. Add the fact that there are a lot of components around a CPU socket on a motherboard that don't have such tolerances to temperature and you can actually coldbug your motherboard as well.
So your friend wasn't really that off on his claim. He just needed to make it more specific.
May I suggest just going with LN2 instead of LHe? This would make thing much easier. Hell; you could buy one of these units here
and have LN2 on tap at your disposal.
