5.25 GHz Pentium 4

The folks at Tom's Hardware Guide used liquid nitrogen to super-cool a 3 GHz Pentium 4 chip and managed to get it running at 5.25 GHz. See The 5 GHz Project for details. It's interesting that a standard motherboard was able to handle the increased speed as well. As Intel is able to cool off its chips internally, this bodes well for doubled clock speeds in the near future.
