Phase change cooling is using Freon to cool the cpu down to negative temperatures. Like -50c or -60c is achievable. But you really have to prepare your mobo and cpu for condensation. Its alot of work but the results are awesome. Its a little expensive to get going too.

In the dual core corner the FX-60 and the X2 4800+ again the Opteron 270 (still unsure on the opteron's spec's).

But if you are looking at a highend system from AMD in the near future you would be better served by awaiting the release of the new core.

cheers
You hit the nail, i was going to say that, i would go with the FX-57 considering dual core doesnt give you a reall advantage, and i still see the 57 on top of some benches with the FX 60, and thats stock, ive seen the FX-57 get up real high like 3.6!, now thats crazy

Woah...that is awesome!
Keep in mind though I don't plan on buying any of these any time soon. I just wanted to know what is the best I could get, so when I build another system I can compare it with the best. Kinda hard to explain but I am sure you guys get what I am saying!
