Intel Pentium 4 reaches 3675mhz!
Recently, the people at muropaketti.com managed to overclock their Pentium 4 2.2ghz processor up to 3675mhz. Overclocking is raising a processor's speed, but doing so will make it run at high temperatures, void the warranty, and often run unstable.
They managed to obtain some liquid nitrogen which is -196 degrees celsius, and they then put it into a copper cup which was placed on top of the CPU. They then managed to overclock it to a world record speed.
By visiting the source, you can see photographs of it. It is recommended you do not try this at home.
Amazing isnt it, the guy was even playing Quake 3 on the system

p.s some people have way to much time on their hand

seems like a good way to ruin a perfectly good cpu and motherboard.
even if you could cool it down, wouldn't the bus skew make it too unstable to run for long anyway?

I agree with Jabberwocky total waste of hardware. What the hell do you need 3675mhz for any ways. Look I can run quake3 at 500fps even thought the human eye can only see up to about the 30-40fps range.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

How about instead of liquid nitrogen, how about putting the thing in a freezer somehow and seal the cords coming out. I've seen it done somewhere, but they had to worry about condenstaion and that sort of thing.

I overclocked my PC and one day it reached 189 degrees and made popping sounds and smoke came out.....
