Overclocking study – Intel Core i7 4790K & Intel Pentium G3258 – air, water, phase-change, DICE & LN2
Ok, I hope you enjoyed your reading today. If you got here and you liked the article, we have two bonus pages for you. The first bonus is … the beer cooled PC!!! Using the same gear as we did in our extreme water cooling section (EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ + EK-DCP 4.0 PWM) we replaced the water and antifreeze with chilled beer (7.5L of beer and 5KG of ice) and we took the whole system on the romanian national television (ProTV). Live, during the morning news we easily managed to get to 5.2GHz. We could have gone to 5.4-5.5GHz but we didn’t want to get any blue screen on live TV so we didn’t push our beer cooled rig too much.
And you should also know that we used a very “special” kind of beer, which can be purchased for the extraordinary price of 1.66 USD / 2.5L… So….yeah… beer is good for cooling you, but it can also be used to cool your CPU… And instead of a potato, here is a 2.5L beer !!!
