    You can cool with liquid nitrogen. Click here for the article. They are cooling there Radeon 9700 with the nitrogen. They got a 3dMark Score of 20000. WOW!
    I think they have also cooled a processor with the nitrogen? Oh yeah, the article is not in english....but I think the pics are enough!!!!!

    Alot of those are one off uses, a bit of a waste, and not a real score (cheating) if you ask me

    might be, but I thought it was cool looking. Did you see the ice forming all around the video card and on the mobo. I thought the crystrals on the other side of the vpu that formed were cool.

    While LN2 can result in some massive clock speeds, it does tend to destroy the components rather quickly. If only I could have enough disposable income to be able to get a brand new processor and OC it til it cooks. :)

    I really do not think I would even consider using LN2 to cool my overclocked hardware...even if I had the extra income. It is foolish, but cool for other ppl to do and show me some cool pictures! :thumb:

    I wouldnt do that to my poor computer. I wouldnt mind some water cooling to see what the 9700 is really capable of achieving though :D.
