he is right. i forget what the law is called, but when you stick your hand in LN2 the heat from your hand instantly evaporates any nitrogen, creating a thin layer of gas. you have to do it quickly, but it is very possible

But I don't believe anything from people who represent the company making it... As always consumer benchmarks will tell.
Wonder if they're that desperate....just getting the hype up so that no one buys i7s for Christmas.
No chip can handle 1.9V, Period. LN2 is the only thing that kept it alive those few seconds. Even if you brought it back to normal voltage that thing will die shortly. Doesn't matter if they're cherry-picked or not, people don't have LN2 to OC like crazy. Air-cooled overclocks are a lot more representative.
1: they have brought in multiple third parties for this. i dont think team finland is AMD specific either...
2: yes they are hyping it up so no one buys i7s. i think thats kinda the point of advertising. gets the consumer to not buy the competitors product, and instead buy your own.
3: no intel chip can handle 1.9v. last time i checked, intel does not own AMD and wont for some time.
4: and they DID DO AIR COOLING. they got to 3.9 which is not that bad and that was only in thirty minutes. and it was in the video.
next time, please watch the videos before posting. it really really helps, i promise.Edited by forcifer - 12/20/08 at 12:35am
