CPU disappears in a puff of logic!

Check out this video on Google showing an overclocked AMD Duron vaporizing. They clocked it up in both frequency (3.8ghz) and I believe also significantly over voltage, but still, pretty amazing. They just didn't let the magic smoke out, they literally destroyed the chip.

The most daunting challenge facing computing isn't speeding up computers, it's controlling heat. Cool stuff.
