No offence, but from your posts, i REALLY dont think you should be doing this untill you have a little more experiance working with computers under your belt.
Never do anything inside a computer without turning it off, unless you KNOW what you are doing and that it will not damage anything, such as if you as leet as me.
If you draw a THICK line its quite possible you will damage or tear off the resistor. plus, if it didnt need some resistance, why would the company put it on there in the first place, to look pretty?
I personally liked the variable resistor idea a lot, but thats something you REALLY REALLY REALLY shouldnt try
On another note, might be cool if you could wire up a variable capacitor with some kind of controller that could throttle down your vcore when idle, to a level you have found stable at idle, and raise it to the amount needed to stay stable depending on the processor activity. Then again, that might be kind of complicated with multi core CPUs, but would probably increase the CPU life if you run a high OC 24/7.
