Alienware overclocks the Area-51 GLX PC to 4GHz

AlienWare ALX

Not sure how pleased the good people at Intel will be about this, but Alienware just broke the 4GHz barrier by deliberately overclocking the 3.6GHz processor in their new Area-51 ALX gaming desktop and installing a special liquid-cooling system to keep the whole thing from melting down. And not surprisingly it'll cost you at least 4 G's if you want to get your hands on 4GHz.
