Shark OC Team Italy Breaks the Present SuperPI 1M World Record

A new world record has been set today (technically yesterday). Shark OC Team Italy has published the undeniable evidence that their DFI DK P45-T2RS PLUS motherboard and Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 processor are the fastest computer combo to calculate Super PI 1M in just 6.875 seconds. This world record was achieved using the E8600 CPU clocked at the incredible 6562MHz (FSB 656MHz x 10 multi) with 1.968 volts! not the best imaginable core voltage for a 45nm processor. If you are interested at what today's technology is capable of doing, please head over the original thread at XtremeSystems.com.

Congrats team Italy!

Wow, that is impressive. 6.5GHZ and stable enough to run Super Pi. I wonder what kind of cooling they have on that sucker.

Still I like looking at how they set them up (what container styles, what parts they cooled, etc)
