    For those that have never built their own home PC before, MSI is a company that is renown for their motherboards and for good overclocking tools. At Computex last week MSI debuted an overclocking app specifically made to run from your Android smartphone, called "Afterburner". It's a GPU tool that enables you to monitor the temperature, voltage and fan speed of your graphics card on your PC via a WiFi connection. Furthermore, it also allows you to overclock and overvolt that same GPU, all from your Android phone remotely.

    Hmmm... interesting. I am not sure why you would want to overclock your PC's graphics card while you are on vacation, but perhaps their could be some "application" for this app. What do you guys think? Here's the Full Press Release below:
