Just for FYI, I was told today that there have been successful uses of LN2 to cool down major systems, they take the LN2 and spray it basically over a computer, and they can do this for as long as they want.
Because it's like going with a car on one wheel only
, it defeats the purpose of overclocking and adds some kind of a "tabloid" feeling to the story, even if I truly understand how big achievement it is indeed.
I understand it's progression of course, but continuing with my analogy: they broke the world record of driving a Mustang 2012 model on one wheel only, but my problem is that it's still only 72 mph, which would be only awesome if you wouldn't compare it to speeds achievable on four wheels.
I'm saying that only the whole CPU and the gained extra performance is what counts for me. Sorry, but that's how it is.

I know, I understand this is all came out from the marketing department of course, I just don't like how these 1 core/1 thread news are going , that's all
