Super CPU........dont try this at home!

When the Intel Pentium 4 2,8GHz CPU arrived to our testlab we ordered 10 liters of Liquid Nitrogen (LN2 -196C) and decided to run some tests in very low temperatures.

After some adjusting and testing we were able to run SiSoft Sandra CPU and Memory benchmarks and Pifast benchmark smoothly when the CPU was running at 3917MHz. We raised the FSB one more step and managed to run succesfully SuperPi benchmark while CPU was running at 3998MHz. The result was 39 seconds.

Test setup: P4 2,8GHz, Modified Asus P4T533-C, Samsung PC800 RDRAM, PNY GeForce 4 MX440 and Windows XP OS.

Thats a Pentium 4 2.80GHz chip overclocked to an astounding 3.917GHz.

Check out the pictures.

hmmmm.. 2.8 overclocked to 3.917

thats barely as high as the 1.6a has been overclocked

less then 50% overclock is a disappointment

I think they actually got it to POST at 4.3, but that's about as far as it got

well.. my 1.6a runs smooth at 2.4
and i know the 1.6a has been clocked at 3.867 without any problems..

so this is still a oretty mild overclock..
with a 2.8.. its not news until its clocked to 4.7 or higher, and runs smooth
