Hand-fed liquid nitrogen should do the trick.

Lol!I would stick with 4.5 - 4.8ghz i highly doubt you will hit 5.3ghz even if you could still would need at the very least a custom loop.

LOL... Nitrogen is a bit over the top, maybe if you de-lid and go serious watercooling and hope you have a VERY lucky chip.

But a seriously slim chance of being successful...

Out of interest, why did you pick 5.3ghz as your target?
