As a slight aside. In this month's PC Pro there is an article about
a company producing refrigerated PCs. They build a box around an
Athlon 600 chip, fill it with froen and connect it to a refrigeration
unit. The chip then runs at -40C! and is overclocked to 800MHz,
with AMD's blessing (silicon can run faster the cooler it is).
Apparently Carrera will sell you one of these beasties for ~UKP4500.
