Has any one ever toyed around with overclocking? I know its incredibly unstable and me and a few of my teachers are experimenting with differnet types of supercoolants and motherboards and processors.

Our most successful overclock was on a ASUS Motherboard and a AMD Processor at 1.4GHz~ (Not sure the exact types) with Liquid Nitrogen as a coolant (If your wondering how I got my hands on some Its me my Computer Engineer teacher and my chemistry teacher) We overclocked it from a 1.4Ghz~ to an unstable 3.6-4.2Ghz~

Any one else has toyed with this? I wanna hear some stories ;D

Overclocking is a fun thing to do - and very involved if you're shooting for max performance from your rig. For example, liquid nitrogen cooling of the CPU will lower the temps that it operates at - but then you'll have to cope with temps on the RAM, video card, along with your northbridge (and maybe southbridge) chips (not to mention other components that you can cool).

I overclocked my AMD Thunderbird processor (the old 1 gHz one) with a pencil (yes, it could be done back then!) and spent a lot of time experimenting with it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I remember that trick, I also remember the re-soldering on chips too (its how I stumbled upon Tomshardware.com). I never was gutsy enough to try back then it but I overclock my Celeron now.
