However, we took this opportunity to make the best of it with natural sub-zero overclocking. With the Abit AW9D i975X motherboard, an Intel Pentium 4 processor, 2GB of OCZ's Flex XLC PC2-9200 memory, and cooling provided by Mother Nature, we set off on a spontaneous overclocking adventure. Have you ever seen a motherboard in a snow-bank? We sure have.

        What a waste of a good motherboard

        If you want to perform these kinds of tests in the future, send the stuff up my way. Its a balmy -16 Celsius where I live. I promise to give it a good run and a good home at the end - lol.

          Further tweaking had occurred, but finally when attempting to push the system further with greater voltages the motherboard had finally given up.
          It wasn't intended to kill the motherboard, but it had just died. I was actually surprised it didn't die sooner due to condensation.
