Overclocking in Intel's laboratory

Posted on Saturday, May 05 2007 @ 06:36 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
A while back Nordic Hardware got an offer to come up and visit Intel in Stockholm and take a tour of the office in Kista and perform some hardcore overclocking in Intel's laboratory. These are some key elements: Five Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800, five Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700, a whole bunch of motherboards, 40 liters of LN2, two compressor cascades, one single-stage phase change cooler and two of the world's best overclockers; Kinc and crotale.

"When we arrived at Kista and Intel we would unpack our gear and install it in Intel's temperature-controlled laboratory for some really serious overclocking. We weren't sure what kind of hardware Thomas and Intel had waiting for us, but we can assure you that we were pleasantly surprised."
