There is quite a bit of anticipation surrounding the new AMD FX processors code named "Bulldozer".

Today though, AMD is letting us show off some of the overclocking potential of these new processors! Just how far can the new FX processors be pushed under air? How about under extreme cooling like Liquid Helium? Read on to find out just how far they can go!

Holy Iceberg, Batman! Mr Freeze is up to his old tricks again!

Geez, I can't believe what fun these guys get to have and get paid for it to boot! (pun intended ;) ) What's next, taking it into space to use absolute zero as their base temps? I can see the headlines now: "AMD Bulldozer redefines Lunar Landscape!" :P

Thanks for the article! :supz:
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

This should be good news for the rest of us. Hopefully the production chips will clock well. It's cool to see the manufacturer setting up an extreme demo like that. Unlike Intel though AMD has seemed to cater to the price conscious enthusiast crowd. Hopefully the launch of these chips will be similar to the awesomeness that was the Athlon 64.

A while back the Phenom II breaks past 7GHz. Now, the FX reaches 8.4GHz - Very impressive!
Proud to be an AMD user.
