A US company has claimed it has developed a cooling system which will allow 400MHz AMD K6-2s to clock at 500MHz. It is selling a 110V system for both Win95 and Win98 and promises a 220V system early in 1999. The system, sold by Kryotech is called the Cool K6-2 and uses a 400MHz part accelerated to 500MHz using a proprietary –40° cooling system. A unit with a FIC PA-2013 ATX motherboard using a 100MHz front side bus with AGP and a 300 watt power supply will cost $1,695. More details are on the company's Web site. Kryotech could not be contacted at press time for launch and distribution details, although it is attempting to create partnerships with European companies. ®
