As good as nitro, this is for REAL

WARNING: This is an AT YOUR OWN RISK kinda thing, although mine has been in operation for over a month with no problems.

srry I have no digicam, would make things easy for us all.

This is a cooling mod I designed and built, and it costs very little.
My cpu saw a 40 DEGREE DROP celcius with this mod.
Here's the list: 1. A can of dust remover spray 2. Mounting harware (this will vary depending on your case, position, istallation procedure ect. ect.) NOTE: the can will need to be upside-down 3: an electronic relay that opens and closes a valve (got mine at a local electric/hardware shop). 4:A small tap (thread cutter) that matches not only the inside bore of the plastic nozzel of the can but also the threadcount and size of the hardware that you connect to the relay.

Heres what I did, this came to me as I was cleaning the dust off my cpu. I had to position the can upside down to reach it which, as you all prolly know, releases a very small amount of liquid which instantly freezes to ungodly low temps. By the time I had the dust cleaned out, my entire cpu and fan were frozen. When I booted temps showed 5 degrees celcius in bios, not only that but it took almost 30 minutes to heat to normal operating temps which on my barton 2500+ stock are aroun 55 c.

So I bought all the stuff above and tapped the inside bore of the air-in-a-can, threaded in a small flexpipe that hooks to the relay. You then turn the can upside down and tape the trigger open , if it's the proper relay (i.e. normally closed) then nothing will be released as the relay is the new trigger. Then run more flexhose over to your cpu, I have mine positioned slightly above my heatsink AND fan facing twords the motherboard, I've found over time that freezing the fan and fan housing creates more "residual" cold than freezing only the heatsink. I then go into my bios and turn on "cpu temp. alarm" which I set at the lowest settings (50 C) and that makes the internal speaker beep whenever the cpu reaches 50. I then "splice" a wire into the hot leg of the speaker and this is the power for the relay, hence whenever the temps hit 50 the cpu heatsink/fan get a "shot of ice" which drops my temps to 25-35 c depending on my clock rates. It then takes about 2-10 minutes to reach 50c, again depending on clock rates. If you don't have an alarm option in bios you may be able to find a program that does the same thing, if you do and it has a setting of less than 50 let me know.

With this setup I am almost limitless on clockrates as you can see.
I bet no one else is running a socket a barton core 2500+ at 7ghz.

Dont tell me you actually think that this is true? Please if people have trouble getting new AMD chips over 4 Ghz and you think he got this to 7 Ghz?!? What would he memory be running at?

Download CPU-Z from www.cpuid.com and give us a screenshot as I would like to see what settings you have it on

Heh nice try dude.

Compressed air uses R134A coolant so while you can get decent idle temps, unless you are continuously spraying coolant on the heatsink, your load temps will quickly go back to normal. As the others have posted already you admit that the 7 GHz thingy is a bug in another thread.

Last NO AthlonXP will ever run much above 3 GHz let alone 7 GHz

Yeah not really at 7ghz But the cooling mod really works. umd obviously pays attention, you get reps. and bluefire...not sure about you question. My bios has a temp. alarm and the relay opens the valve whenever the internal speaker gets voltage thus spraying the ice cold air from the can. You could also maybe build a custom temp senser for your heatsink that would control the valve.
