    AMD's Phenom II X4 TWKR CPU for extreme overclocking lunatics

    AMD has recently cooked up a little something they like to call the Phenom II X4 TWKR Black Edition, a hand-picked, limited edition processor that is designed to be overclocked "to the extreme." Currently labeled "Not for Sale," with no serial numbers and only one hundred of these bad boys in existence, just a few lucky folks have got their hands on one, so we've dug up some reviews (and previews) so you can see what the fuss is all about. According to the company, one of these guys could be pushed by 100MHz with air cooling, which doubles to about 200MHz with "extreme cooling." As far as impressions go, the reviewer at Neoseeker quickly decided that the units aren't meant to be overclocked on air only, and that dry ice isn't much better. Hot Hardware says pretty much the same thing. Though they weren't able to test with liquid nitrogen or liquid helium (the only way to get real speed) they did put a Koolance LN2 pot (and about 20lbs of dry ice) to the test for 4.73GHz. For best results, according to Tom's Hardware Guide, bench the processor at -190C or cooler. But for the real overclocking experience you simply must check out the video of the "world renowned overclockers" K|ngp|n, chew*, and Gomeler as they run the gamut of "extreme overclocking techniques" after the break.

    Note: this is a limited edition given by AMD to extreme overclockers and is not for sale. no support from AMD if the processor goes kaput

    @comp@ddict I have cooler master extreme 500 watt. Is that sufficient? Earlier I had no problems running 4400X2 with 8800GT alpha dog on a CME 390W PSU

    I think a fan is going to take 5 or 12 W of power. I'm not sure about this.

    The default frequency of this processor is equal to 2.0 GHz, it exactly explains the number 42 in the name. Number 4 speaks about a quantity of core, while 2 - about the clock frequency. According to some data, the overclocking potential of TWKR processor on 100 MHz is above average phenom II X4 955 Black edition with the use of air cooling, and 200 MHz above with the use of extreme cooling.
