Benchmarking, overclocking, accelerating oh, let's just cut through the hype and dispense with the jargon. What's the fastest PC on the market, hands down? The answer may surprise you.

KryoTech, founded in 1996 and based in South Carolina, builds its products on the basis of one simple principle: Chips can run faster when they're cold. It's simple physics.

What's more, when a chip gets colder, it gets more efficient the materials it's made of conduct better. MORE>>
