Im pretty sure you would be melting other things before your cpu.
Does your mobo have a 8+2 power phase? Also have you overclocked your NB at all? I've heard that overclocking it to 2.6-3.0 yields amazing performance benefits.
Be sure you have good cooling on your NB and VRM's though. You may also want to get some heat sinks for the mosfet's.
Be sure to watch the heat on your mobo. I fried a amd MOBO OC'ing before. The mosfet's got so hot it melted the solder and the fet fell sideways and lost connection!
let's say i was a noob OC'er then lmao
