It was time for AMD to crack open the liquid -nitrogen and
liquid-helium again as it set a new world record by clocking its new FX
processor to a staggering 8.429Ghz.
The AMD Overclocking Team used a pre-release FX processor and
a tank of liquid-helium to push the
processor well over 8GHz (even with
the anti-virus enabled at one point), setting a new world record for
modern processor frequency in the process to 8.429GHz, breaking the previous record of 8.309GHz.

The AMD Overclocking Team at the event
consisted of Sami Maekinen, Brian Mchlachlan, Pete Hardman,
Schradin, and Simon Solotko, a senior manager at AMD.
