    Well I'll start with one message don't drink and drive a PC with LN2 Cooling :p
    If you guys wern't aware there is an ASUS 1156 competition running, I have been testing cpu's trying to get a lucky cpu and well things were not going my way after testing a couple of cpu's i had enough !!!!

    So i pondered how hard is it to kill an intel cpu ????
    Then i made this video :lol::p:lol:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcdq0klOjdc

    I was amazed at how hard it was to kill this cpu, i honestly thought it would be dead in the first 2 minutes. I know intel have built in thermal shutdown but that doesn't really help when i keep turning it back on and forcing it to boot, although i havn't shown all the video due to editing this was almost frustrating trying to kill it ..... lol.



    Well the day turned to night and i had headed off down the road to fello team.au members house Kayl and said hey man lets bench on my i7 980x and see what we can come up with :)
    All was going well a couple of vantage runs and 03 runs came out well. The night drifted on and the drinks kept flowing and the logical part of my brain had pretty well passed out and i was curious how much more will my cpu scale in mhz with more volts ???? Now most people benching LN2 on gulftown hang around the 1.88v mark and the 2v mark is for the insane :) well at 1.9v my cpu was happily kicking at 6.35ghz but of course i wanted more :p so i pumped the vcore up to 2.02v and the cpu reacted well and i was able to hit 6.525ghz so thinking hey lets throw some 3d benches down, now i hit up 3d mark 03 at 6.45ghz :Paranoid: i managed to get through until the last test when the computer crashed and well it made it to bios then crashed again to never boot again and headed to rest with the pile of i7 980x i have successfully killed :p ( I think my graveyard now is up to 6 or 7 gulftown's )

    Just a note all of my other hardware performed great and it still pumping away ASUS boards are rock solid :) and i also tested the new Corsair AX1200 psu - awesome PSU.

    6 or 7?.... To be honest it doesnt matter if you even get the WR, is spending that much even justified?

    +1 to that...

    What exactly are you trying to prove here Uncle? A hammer would have done the job in 2sec flat & saved you 23min of your life. Would have made a WAAAAY more exciting youtube clip as well.

    this is an interesting video though. he ran 1.85vtt there without a cooler and then 2.2vcore and still nothing. He then turned off thermal protection if i'm not wrong and it still took 25 minutes for the chip to die :shock:

    jono is actually cyclops from the x-men, if he removes his glasses a laser capable of slicing a man in two shines from his eyes..

    why didn't you just remove your sunnies and look at the cpu for 1 second dude, that would of saved you 30 minutes!

    Or an intel? Try a pentium 3 or........get a cheap 775 chip like an e5400 and try it. Customer's seem to have no trouble killing those cheap 775's. They are mean't to have no thermal protection, unlike the more expensive intel chips.
