Well i am planning on doing a science project to see if you can fry an egg in a computer, so I am planning on purchasing a core 2 quad and mobo. I currently have a hyper 212 evo and am going to take all fans off of it and get the processor very hot (possibly killing it because of excessive voltage/heat) and put a sheet of aluminum on where the fan would be usually mounted on crack an egg on it and see if it can be fried/cooked! Or do you suggest I go the gtx 480 route?

Why fry an egg just fry the hardware!

Q6600 B3 revision. Its important to be B3 not G0.
GTX480 would be more expensive.

BTW something like that has been already done. Have a look

Bit of a waste of money, no?

i'd use a small metal dish, like a metal crucible, and bake the egg

For the grades...and if it survives I have an entirely new system!

Hi :) 

You wont have time to cook the egg....the cpu will blow first...and the mobo thermal cut-out will shut off the mobo...

All the best Brett :)
