    I'm talking about added cooling to compliment my overclocked OG droid.

    I've been toying around with the idea of either:
    a. replacing the plastic cover over the area that gets really hot with a more heat conductive metal plate (its the plastic piece above the battery cover, where the camera is)
    b. adding a small fan to a hardcase

    I could do both, but I dunno if this will even yield usefull results.

    Has anyone else tinkered with some sort of cooling method?

    While you've at out why not make a video on how to add an additional cooling fan for the ps3? I'd love to add one... :)

    Ps3 don't need an additional fan there made to run with the ones they have with no problem adding another would do nothing and possibly may do more harm than good. Its just the way there designed. The newer models in fact do run quieter and cooler than the launch version but still its a bad idea on the fan.

    Good idea for the Droid. But my pocket is covered in lint. That fan would be gross after a couple days. It would work though but u have to know soldering circuit board or reflowing

    Sweet! Thanks, that's almost exactly what I was thinking of. Although, I wasn't planning on going so far as to connect the plate to the CPU. I still need the phone to work until my next upgrade, so I don't want to risk destroying it.

    I wonder if this would still work (maybe not as well) just attaching the heat sink to the RF shield over the cpu? The heat transfer would not be as good, but not having to cut the RF shield might be worth the gap in performance.

    Anyway, that's all I needed to know.
