Google is your friend. If you just type in "absolute zero," the first result is the temperature of absolute zero man! It's less effort than a post.

I felt it was slightly more effort than a post. A post requires two clicks. That at the least requires three.

lol sorry im lazy, ok read through, to my understanding, -273 degrees celsius is 'absolute zero' (correct me if im wrong), so how can it not be possible? i mean if u can get liquid oxygen and nitrogen which freeze at a much lower temp....
to build or not to build,
that is the question?

There is no such thing as a lower temp than absolute zero. That's why its called absolute zero. In order to take heat away from one object, you need a cooler object for it to go to. What's cooler than absolute zero? Can't happen, but you can get darned close.

absolute zero occurs when all particle motion within an object ceases.

As to the chillyness, you can buy cascades (custom made albeit) which can give you near or past -100C... under a load. the problem is, certain processors suc as the winchester core a64 haveva reputed "cold bug" which causes instability and crashes at subzero temps, akin to overheating. This issue is not present in the clawhammer or venice/sd (apparently) cores. I'll let you know later on if/when i get a Vapochill unit and take to freezing 3 seperate processorrs for the sake of science.
