Don't do it. They get hot enough as it is without you trying to OC it.

lol man those don't cool it that much at all. I have one for my dads laptop, good way of keeping your lap cool, and his fan doesn't turn on as much to blow out hot air, but it aint gonna help for OC'ing.

If you want to see how many seconds your laptop will run before it goes up in smoke just for fun sakes then by all means let us know how it works out for ya
