iBuyPower to offer record-setting overclocked AMD Bulldozer CPU in new gaming desktop

You may recall that last week AMD touted the exploits of a pair of pro overclockers, who were able to juice one of the chip company's new FX, or Bulldozer, processors to a world-record 8.429GHz.

You may recall that last week AMD touted the exploits of a pair of pro overclockers, who were able to juice one of the chip company's new FX, or Bulldozer, processors to a world-record 8.429GHz. Now gaming PC vendor iBuyPower, which worked with AMD on that record-setting project, is giving you the opportunity to have the same overclocked set-up in your own desktop.

Dubbed the Guinness World Edition, the PC will ship with the new AMD FX-8150 eight-core CPU and will be "similarly configured" to the system that broke the record. One obstacle iBuyPower will have to overcome: getting that same clock speed without using liquid helium for cooling, which the overclockers had at their disposal.

No word on pricing or exact availability for the new desktop, though iBuyPower says "later this fall" as a release date. You can probably also add "not cheap" as a price.
