Oh wow, you manage to push your Athlon 64 to 2.8GHz? Is it a 3000+, 3200+, etc? I guess water cooling will do a good job of keeping it cool. I could probably push my 3500+ to 3GHz easily, but I would also consider water cooling too.

I would just go liquid nitrogen or liquid metal cooling and go past the 3ghz barrier. My friend at school got his comp (an fx 55) to push to 3.36ghz before it crashed because of instability with liquid nitrogen borrowed from the science lab...

I may do that someday just for fun. Overclocking the hell out of it. I'll bet if your friend were to keep it at 3GHz with liquid nitrogen, he could run it for years.

Yeah, he ran out of the liquid nitrogen and the cpu fried and the whole system crashed... lol... a good $800 for the cpu gone down the drain... lol... but it was worth it...

Oh man, that's too bad. I guess water cooling is still the best solution. Plenty of water around, lol.
