Achieving cryogenic temperature

DRAM may indeed be adaptable for the things suggested in the article.

The missing piece here is precisely how folks using it intend to get operating temperatures that low.  How do you cool DRAM and other components to minus−180 °C or minus−292.00 °F or 93.15 Kelvin?

(And for that matter, what happens if you can't maintain those temperatures?   You may not get a system failure, depending on how fast things warm up, but you won't get the desired performance.)

I'd love to hear more about the proposed cooling methods.
