Can I overclock my GPU and/or CPU and replace my DVD Drive for a Fan?

Hi,

I was wondering if I could overclock my GPU and/or CPU and replace the DVD Drive in my laptop into the Fan to reduce overheating and provide more cooling?

(I don't think a Heatsink won't provide much cooling)

I already have Turbo Boost in my laptop, is there anymore ways to boost my GPU or CPU?

Any replies would be highly appreciated!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You sadly cannot do this. You would have nowhere to plug your new fan in. However, you could replace the thermal paste on your MBP. That might help with some of your thermal woes.
