    Ist real or fiction, since my mach2 would like to team up with this prolly very very mutch.

    I have seen ppl over at XS doing some benches with qx9650, but never heard of the cold issue to 45nm.

    Hope its not true.
    State of the art, no more no less...

    Take a look here on the forums. Deanzo has his QX9650 on dry ice (-70C) with no issues. This cold bug just looked like a motherboard issue.

    Actually the cold bug is more prevelant on 45nm, one guy reported it hitting around -40&#176;. He also happens to be the only one I've seen over 500FSB on 9650

    But chances are, @ single-stage temps you'll be fine.

    Hit and miss. Seems to happen in range of -100c below typically though? Are you sure on -40c one? :P

    I know. It just gioves the evap head temp anyay. What gives a sub zero readout that you can hook up with a probe? Most I've seen don't display very low or at most to -20.
