TG Daily overclocker Fugger managed to overclock a Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 processor to 5999.7MHz at NVISION!
It’s all in the name of fun and friendly competition and “Fugger”, the owner of xtremesystems.org, showed off his three-stage cooler that chills CPUs to minus 100 degrees … that’s Celsius, not Fahrenheit.
The cooler has massive pipes that connect to the processor, which in this case was an Intel Core 2 Due E8600 “Wolfdale”. Fugger fights condensation with thick insulation and a nice layer of Vaseline on the motherboard. You can see the massive cooler in our pictures below - it's so massive that it requires its own cart to transport around the show floor.
The chip had a 600MHz FSB and x10 multiplier. It was stable enough to run Aquamark and SuperPI but unfortunately there are no SuperPI numbers.
