:lol: trust me its safe the heatspeader is bonded to the silicon with epoxy...nothing can get in there ;)

 

As long as any electronic device has no power at all running thru it...water doesnt effect it...just make sure its completly dry before you power it back up :nuke:

Do you think that by doing this it will improve cooling on the CPU?

Or you just did it beacuse your bored da heck out of it? :P

I ran this SuperPI 32mb test friday night and my CPU temp stayed in the 40-41c range
