Alrigth...i know how o overvolt, i just screwed up and severed all the atx leads on my test PSUs, so i can't turn them into fan workhorses. Question one: Is there a way to overvolt without sacrificing my psu.

Question two...
Has anyone trid using evaporative air cooling on a CPU to reduce temps below ambiant? I plan on doing just that...and i will chronicle my trials and travails in this forum.. Once it is done, i plan to write a guide on it and spread the wealth. I plan on using ahumidifier to pump light moisture into ducting leading to the BT, and using plexi and neoprene to seal the apparatus from any electronic componants. Also ducting the humdid air out of the computer into a dehumidifier, which will drain into the humidifier resovoir (that last part is a little ways down the road, as i do not have access to a dehumidifier as of yet) I'm hoping to do this as cleanly as possible, without the udly mess.

Thank goodness i have my brothers computer lying around, or i wouldn;t be able to bring this modding goodness to you.

Check out how to mod your BT or see if your Sapphire X800GTO² can be unlocked. in my FAQs

Doesnt sound worth it. You're cooling the big typhoon with the moisture? A waterblock will easily outperform that, if that is the case. Also, what are you trying to overvolt? The 12V rail?

Keep away from naked flames, lol. Glycol sounds flamable.

Dont think that idea would work :/
