Deze uit de hand gelopen hobby oefenen ze hier uit met behulp van een Abit CX6 plankje en veel leuker: de Asetek VapoChill kast. De VapoChill kast is uitgerust met een heel leuk dingetje, namelijk een refrigeration, ook wel bekend onder de naam diepvriezer in den Nederlanden. Het zal je niet verbazen: de CPU blijft met deze kast zelfs in een worse case scenario onder het nul punt. De overclock resultaten met deze kast zijn ook aardig indrukwekkend, 1163 MHz met een Coppermine 933 is zeker niet slecht :
Folks, all we can say is that we were floored when we saw this. I honestly never expected to be able to chill the CPU down to -37C. One thing to bear in mind here is that this is at an idle condition with the system booted well above 1GHz. We were disappointed that we could not take readings under full load with the Hardware Doctor Utility. However, if I were to make an educated guess, I would say the CPU was probably still well below 0 Celsius.
[...] Let's see, with a 933MHz. stock CPU speed, at 1.163GHz. we are talking about a 230MHz. over-clock here! Not too shabby if you ask me, considering this CPU would only hit 1GHz. even with an Alpha PEP66 stuck to it. It should also be known that we were running the CPU at a full 2 VOLTS! You are probably thinking we are crazy running a CPU at this voltage but as long as you get the heat out and bring in "The Chill" as in Vapochill, you don't have to worry so much about voltage, within reason. I still believe that if we were to tweak things a little more, even higher results could have been achieved. That is one of the best assets of the Vapochill, you can spend all day playing around with it! It is a lot of fun!
