Intel Images: Extreme Overclocking with Liquid Nitrogen
Navya Pramod, a systems engineer working in Intel’s overclocking lab in Hillsboro, Oregon, pours 196 degrees below zero Celsius (-320 F) liquid nitrogen to cool down a 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K processor. Extreme overclocking causes the system to rapidly heat up. Liquid nitrogen is one tool that overclocking enthusiasts use to cool their processors and achieve extreme performance.
Intel’s unlocked processors give enthusiasts and gamers the ability to overclock – or crank up the clock speed of – a processor. Intel has a dedicated team that builds and tests overclocking features to increase performance, and the company educates customers on overclocking.
