A forum user over at XtremeSystems, by the name of Ivanqu, has managed to take an MSI P45 Platinum motherboard to a whole new level by reaching an incredibly high FSB.

Use plenty of LN2 loving, he managed to take an Intel 45nm Wolfdale Core 2 Duo E8400 (only one core enabled, though and with just one stick of 512MB memory in single channel mode) to a clock speed of 4235MHz but that is not the impressive part. By using liquid nitrogen on the Northbridge, Ivanqu managed to pump the FSB all the way up to an amazing 705MHz with the CPU multiplier running at six.
