    If the chip can handle it, if you can dissipate the enormous heat generated and if you don't mind cooking everything and drastically shortening its lifetime, you could try.

    You would need to spend a lot of money on liquid nitrogen cooling or similar and treat the CPU and motherboard as a "disposable item"

    Yeah that is real. Saw that a while back. Here's a link to the original thread: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=53037
    He does say that windows doesn't boot above 350FSB.

    His Specs:
    Vapochill LS, Chilly1 Xtreme Modded -63c
    Intel 955XE ES @ 5.6Ghz
    Asus P5WD2-Premium
    2GB Mushkin 6400UL
    ATI XT Crossfire
    ATI HDTV Wonder
    PCI DVB-S Satellite FTA
    Logitech THX High Definition Audio
    2x 36GB Raptor 10K RAID 0
    OCZ Modstream

    With a Vapochill anything is possible :p
