    What am I even looking at here?  What’s with the 12 inch long bolts and the glob of what appears to be modeling clay?  Is it some kind of heat conductor?

    Is there a reason AM3 is circled?

    Sealant, liquid cooling system. That rig is a really expensive way to nuke a perfectly good chip. lol

    Not really a mishap its clearly setup for a record, probably using l2n

    That doesn’t look like overclocking so much as bad design.

    What happens when you confuse “litres” with “millilitres” when applying thermal grease.

    Yeah, it’s a liquid nitrogen cooling system where the mobo is packed in an insulation material to prevent the cold from causing condensation (which of course will cause shorting).  The LN made the socket brittle and he’s snapped it pulling up the insulation material.  I believe the white canisters to the right of the picture are the liquid nitrogen containers. ; )
