The first results have been submitted to the Swedish Computer Performance Championship and among these we have Andreas 'Himura' Johansson and his Celeron Mobile 1.5GHz. He managed to push his poor 1500MHz processor to 4170MHz using liquid nitrogen. This brings him to a 178% (!!) overclock. The second best in the history of the competition after last year's winner Robert 'crotale' Kihlberg's 203%.

"Andreas has namely published his first result in the Percentual Overclocking category and has submitted the second best result in the history of the competition, namely a 178% overclock. Just as last year it's a 1.5GHz Celeron Mobile which is the heart of the system and with a final frequency at 4.17GHz it's a very impressive achievement."
