One way to fix an overheating graphics chip in an iMac

Wow, that's a really bad idea!

I guess the thought is that more holes means better ventilation, which is wrong. The air flow inside the iMac (and other computers) is very carefully designed to move air over the heat sinks and other components and out the top of the case. By drilling holes in the case, you are preventing the fans from doing their job. That's like turning on the air conditioner and opening some windows!

Rob, you should remove this "hint".
