Team Finland have scored a world record 45,474 3DMarks with their liquid-nitrogen cooled Dragon PC, based on a heavily overclocked AMD Phenom II X4 processor. The system also uses ATI Radeon HD 4800-series graphics, in the shape of two 4870 X2 GPUs.

Other specs include the ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard with the AMD 790FX chipset, 2GB of Corsair DDR3-1800 memory and a Thermaltake Toughpower 1,200W power supply. The graphics were cooled with the standard heatsink and fan, but the CPU used a full-copper Dragon F1 Extreme Edition setup.
Of course, this isn’t something you’d want to be replicating at home under your desk – you’d probably knock over the pail of liquid nitrogen and shatter all your wall-warts – but it goes to show how tweak-happy the AMD processors are.
