We here in Team NexGen are at NexGen Consulting trying to break the world record right now, with (hopefully) a bit of help from koolance, and some LN2 or LHe4. We have a P5B deluxe, 631 cedarmill (ES), and 2 X 512MB Micron D9GKX Memory modules. So far we have hit 5.5ghz no problem but beyond 1.4v Vcore Air, water, and even our Prometeia Capped out under the heat load generated by the P4 631. But 4ghz at 1v was pretty cool. The use of Liquid Nitrogen is our best bet at breaking the 8000.1MHZ world record and bringing the title back to the good ole U.S.A.

If you have experience with LN2 Cooling please feel free to advise us on any thing you see fit.

How did they do that?

Team Thug used a Vmodd on thier P5B
meaning they added .2v to their CPU Vcore so when you are in the bios if you have it set at 1.7Vcore the lower resistance from the mod gives the CPU 1.9Vcore
They also Vmodded their northbridge to get more than 1.65V to the Chipset.

Is the world record for a P4 631 overclock? If not then why are you using this specific chip? I'm guessing it takes to overclocking very well, in relation to the voltages that it's supplied, considering you hit 4GHz at 1v. This would mean that heat is the big thing holding you back...right?

For 8GHz they need the best of the best cherry picked CPU, an excellent mainboard that can do FSB500 & multiplier x16, and a DDR2 that can operate at 1GHz.

The world record for the fastest CPU frequency was set by overclocking a P4 631 on a P5B with LN2 to 8GHZ
yes in our testing we have found that heat Not the Chipset or RAM is our limiting factor.

:) thats why we got an ES we let Intel do the chery picking for us! our P5B has been Overclocked to 550MHZ on chilled water. and at a 15X multi we will see 8250MHZ
We have also clocked our D9GKX to 1400MHZ

Well guys, I wish you a good luck joining the 8GHz OC club :)
Also, it will be highly appreciated if you post some pics of your sessions.

How long does it have to run to be considered a record? It is only a short period of time or for 24 hours straight at full load? That would be an accomplishment.

I find it hard to believe that anyone serious about breaking the record would even waste their time with Water, Air or even Freon based solutions. That would be like the U.S. using propane to power their rockets trying to beat the Russians into space.

I don't know if this is the right place to be soliciting help with using LN - not your average "Power Users" mod if you know what I mean.

You'd be surprised whose lurking.

screw ln2...I wanna see some triple cascade action go down =p

And yeah seriously, if you guys were really going for the world record how could you even consider a single stage?! Are you kidding me?

More kiddies who have no advanced degrees and who know little to nothing about the 8ghz record throwing there 2 cents worth in...rofl

People with advanced degrees know that the word "there" means "not here", and "their" means "belongs to them". So, it seems as if almost everyone who has posted in this thread has a much better chance of having an advanced degree than you.;)

You only have to be able to boot into Windows long enough to get a CPU-Z screenshot: link, with a verifiable validation.

@ V2V3: So, what's the problem? Buy 5 gallons worth of LN2, and set the world record. BTW, you'll want to only use one stick of your D9.

I guess for me that doesn't seem like much of an accomplishment. I'd think that a computer running at 5 GHz 24/7 is much tougher than to get one running at 8 for such a short period?? I guess that is just me, but I don't see much to strive for in that competition.

Just the nature of the competition. 8GHz in my book is amazing, even if it's only for a minute or two. It's like with most sports including auto racing. Some guys like 1/4 mile action and others like the 24 Hours of Le Mans. World records in either venue are generally pretty cool.

hmm...would a overclocked/nonoverclocked core 2 duo beat that 8Ghz pentium 4 631 overall? who knows...?

good luck though!

Based on my benchmarks at lower speeds, a 4 ghz conroe 6600 (4 meg cache) would best an 8 ghz easily in all benchmarks, and that could be done on water or phase, not a suicide shot. I dont even understand why people are wasing time on netburst chips anymore.

Because a higher number = a bigger e-penis.

when I pos I don`t bother with proper grammar. That way fools like you who have nothing better to say can nit pick and try to be all smart.....

It this was a masters or doctinal thesis then thats another story...
I speak 5 languages fluently and I have a masters in a field not related to computers.

You qualifications are?
You speak english....ok
Your advanced degree is in what ??

ok... :D
