This is a phenom iix4 925 quad core with a Zalman 9700 and I put cemeramaneq arctic cooling thermal compound. incredible.

More about : cpu running degrees

It violates the laws of thermodynamics to have a heat source be cooler than its surroundings, so unless you currently have your machine setup in a freezer or a snow drift, or are using an exotic coolant like LN2 it is not possible. Nice try though. If you honestly believe that it is running at that temp something is broken.

your temp sensor on your motherboard is either messed up or off! (not sure if you can actually shut it off) but something doesnt work...

Be Careful! If the sensor the BIOS uses is far off, then it can turn off the fan and cause the CPU to overheat. If it is just the core temps that are off, it is ok. Check the temp reported in BIOS, the "CPU" temp, and the "core" temp. Also, updating to the latest BIOS sometimes helps. And, like hunter said, it is physically impossible. Unless of course that is your own made up temperature scale ("degrees" is meaningless, need a C or F or whatever).

Well, he did quote a certain "cemeramaneq" thermal compound. It could be a breakthrough in thermal interface materials. Something that allows thermal energy to flow through space-time and teleport it to Antarctica or something. :)

Good on you!

Did you cover it with a container and soak it in LN2?

Well, to be fair he didn't list what temperature scale and he didn't list ambient temps. If I were outside right now my CPU would probably be at about 0C, and covered in snow.

His PC is soaked in LN2. :lol:
