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.

    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.
