    OK straight off slashdot, but thought it was shirly worth a mention here

    A Japanese overclocker has managed to overclock Intel Pentium 4 670 microprocessor
    to 7.132GHz and even run certain benchmarks on the system that was cooled
    down by liquid nitrogen.

    In order to accomplish the extreme overclocking Japanese enthusiast Memesana, who
    published his results at XtremeSystems web-site, used ASUS P5WD2 Premium
    mainboard based on Intel’s i955X core-logic, Corsair PC2-5400UL 512MB
    memory modules as well as Intel Pentium 4 670 processor with stock speed
    of 3.80GHz. The processor system bus was overclocked to 1520MHz;
    processor’s voltage was pumped up to 1.70V, significantly higher than
    default setting; memory latency settings were CL4 3-3-4, memory voltage
    was set to 2.3V.

    According to the posted statement, the system managed to calculate π (pi) number
    to 1 million decimal places in 18.516 seconds, which is currently the
    world’s record.

    Earlier this year another overclocker has managed to push hit Intel
    Pentium 4 570J chip to 7.22GHz, but at that clock-speed the PC could
    function only in BIOS. The maximum speed at which he could boot Windows XP
    operating system and perform memory testing was 6.60GHz.
