AMD Athlon II X4 630 Extreme Overclocking with LN2 by Deanzo (Page 1)

Today we see how far an AMD Athlon II X4 630 processor can be pushed when cooled to minus 180 degrees celcius with LN2 extreme cooling.

For those that do not know me, my name is Deanzo. I am an extreme overclocker from New Zealand who competes in online and live global competitions hosted by the likes of GIGABYTE and MSI. What that means is, I like to torture hardware with sub zero cooling; dry-ice and liquid nitrogen (LN2) are my preferred weapons of choice to obtain the highest levels of performance.

For my first article here at TweakTown I am putting the mainstream AMD Athlon II X4 630 on the chopping block. I have high expectations of this mainstream CPU as its big brother, the Phenom II, scales extremely well with sub zero cooling and exhibits none of the cold related issues we have been fighting with on Intel platforms for the last couple of years.

How far can I push it with only a 14 times multiplier to play with? How will the CPU and motherboard hold up to minus 180 degrees celcius? And of course, there's the all important benchmark numbers.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't hoping to see a 6 GHz screenshot. With that said, let's see how it all went down. First watch a video we prepared.

Now for the specifics, go onto the next page!
