Default VapoChill LS Overclocks Phenom II to 4.3Ghz

Booting the Vapochill LS after all these years certainly brought a smile to our faces, and we definitely feel that it can breathe some life into just about any processor. Through excellent condensation prevention measures and new socket kits, Asetek has kept the Vapochill potent and relevant over time. While we feel we could maintain our clockspeeds indefinitely, we’d love to see Asetek produce a newer unit tuned for modern quad core processors.

Although we realized a pretty significant gain through the use of our Vapochill LS unit, phase change is definitely not a magic bullet for the Phenom II. To be perfectly honest, we were expecting something more significant than our respectable 420MHz. All the news of 6GHz Phenom IIs on liquid nitrogen has had a hand in spreading unrealistic expectations. The truth is that these are extreme results with almost 2V on the core and load temperatures nearing -190°C. The processors used to attain these results are also very likely hand-picked for maximum results. Buyers need to remember that realistic 24/7 clock speeds are very different from bench-stable clocks.
