Liquid Nitrogen?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I read about this in Euro PC Mags and its possible to achieve tempratures in the negatives.

Its possible and dangerous and is the ultimate cooling solution for your CPU in any case. Sorry if I posted without looking beyond the first page, its dangerous and you can freeze your hands and like you know...shatter them.

Is it a possible working solution to OC your CPU beyond its limits cause the temps were from a 2.8Ghz Intel P4 to like 4.6Ghz except limitation from the custom mobo(I think) they never mentioned what they used.

But I think its a ncie cooling solution and I wonder is anyone willing to risk doing it. Its just a bit risky and that the fact that you need some specialized casing for it and just freezing your other parts is another benifactor. Sorry if this post was dumb or stupid I just wanted to know what ya all are going to say:withstupi .

Yes, very well known. Even Tom's has done a video on it. Here. I assume you don't know much about phase change so the Tom's article on that is here.

I am willing to do it for the fun of it I would use the rig in my specs, unfortunately the the htt runs out of stability on this board for me at about 340 so it will not be worth it directly. I have an old water block which I will modify for the experiment, basically similar to what I have seen before. Looks like good fun just for a laugh and a rediculous thing to do. Prep wise the board will have to be covered with silicone and all sockets, ram, cpu, agp, pci slots, ide slots and even your fan headers (everything) with grease for the whole board will most likely freeze over, especially if you spill some. A bit of work but who cares. Fun for all

To me, any overclock that can't be run 24/7 is nothing more than a novelty. If you want to enter the "sport" of benchmarking, you'll find liquid nitrogen common.

LOL love the pic. Yes you ca use liquid nitrogen but there is a down side. It usually damages all components AND if you want to do it regulary without damaging your mobo and to do it regulary you have to insulate just about everything as it causes condensation to form. Thi can fry your mobo. If you want to get an AMAZING overclock try liquid helium....mutch more expensive but is ultimately much better coolant may get you to something like 50K (-223 degrees C)

Every week I get to look at a giant tank of liquid nitrogen. Its taller than me, and can only be moved because of the wheels on its base.

Unfortunatly, I can only see it through a locked grill. The university would not approve of my helping myself to it - its the coolent for some of the equipment. Occasionally someone opens a tap on the side and pours some into a smaller container (one of those double-layered silvered flasks) to transport to the equipment.

Ya sure? Dont freeze your hands man, I got a quick question.

Is it possible to freeze the CPU when its too cold to not even go?
Im just wondering cause a -200C on a P4 is just ice shattering how can it even operate
