Don't listen to the haters.

With the MBP's advanced cooling systems, you can install a single Kentsfield Quad Core Extreme chip into it, for 4x2.66ghz goodness. = 10.64ghz of processing power!

Firstly, remove the 3.5'' disk in the MPB, and replace with a 1.8'' microHD, and use the spare space for a watercooling system, with vent on the bottom.

The pump will need to be located externally, but you can buy one from your local aquarium store, and it attaches with two #3 deadhead screws - remember to tap guide holes first in the MBP aluminium casing.

Enjoy your new power.

You're right, I forgot all about that, I though he had said MacBook...

The plastic frame of the MacBook can't handle the stresses of the waterblock mounting system, something that the aluminum exoskeleton of the MacBook Pro seems almost designed to handle. Makes one wonder why they didn't include the Kentsfield in the first place.
