Nordic Hardware has just posted their article "Overclocking Athlon 64 FX-57". They put AMD's flagship Athlon 64 FX-57 in the hands of Sweden's best overclocker Robert Kihlberg to test this extremely expensive processor's capacity with different types of cooling.

Further improvements from the 130nm FX-55 are various adjustments and add-ons to the integrated memory controller. We will not dwell further into these subjects but will concentrate more on how to further improve the performance of this CPU. We have three different cooling methods, air cooling, water cooling and compressor cooling, which will help us test the boundaries of what this CPU can perform.
