also why did he put the temps into the minus 100's??? probably unnecessary.
He went 2 cores, because less core = easier overclocking. Its less of a stress on the chip, and the board.

Also, due to the chip design, it has to run in pairs.

The temp is due to 2 things as well, very cold conducts a whole lot better, s its more efficient.
Also as its a small mass, the heat from the voltage needed will quickly heat it up and the extreme cold keeps it down.
