I know, its called Black Edition.
Difference is its not replacement to the FX series i suppose because FX used to come with HSF, BE does not.

Heat sink fans. I dont know that part. But the box looks big I think there must be a fan inside.

Ah, ok. I thought I saw FE somewhere on this thread.

I bought a AMD 64 X2 4600+ about an year back. Stock freq is 2.4 Ghz, now running at 2.58 Ghz with air cooling. RAM timings area also tweaked. Pretty stable.

I used prime95 to test the stability. What do you guys use??

Change the cooler and you can go further higher.

Amey/ LBM: From reading all the posts, the immediate advantages of such a setup to me seems to be that you can chill liquids (read as beer) with the comp every time your refrigerator conks.

Ya..that can be done very easily. No issues but the beer might get solid with such low temperatures and it will be Beer lollipop.

The RAM timings of a DDR RAM are lower than those of DDR2 RAM, right? Eg: CAS latency for DDR2 is 4-clocks, whereas for DDR it is around 2 clocks. Why is that?

Well DDR2 has higher clock speeds compared to DDR1 and timings and clock speed have a inverse relation in between them.Also DDR2 is technically slightly different compared to DDR1.
It gives better bandwidth than DDR1, same is the difference between DDR2 & DDR3.
I use Super Pi 32M for stability testing or even Orthos.The supreme stability test is 3DMark

It surely can be done BUT, DICE+Acetone = -70C and LN2 = -197C so Beer will become a solid chunk, which you surely cannot drink

Guess you guys have forgotten that a bottle of beer kept in the freezer compartment for a longer interval shatters. So it would be similar in this case . Wasters of valuable resources please buy chilled beer from the wine store.

The bottle shatters because it is not opened. One can open the bottle and do the stuff instantly.
