I am dabbling in overclocking, and I am reaching the maximum of what my 180w Power brick can provide. My internal components are i7-3720, GTX 680M, Samsung 840EVO, 750GB Momentus HDD I have searched, and cannot seem to find any power bricks above 180w. So, I am curious in regards to the possibility of splicing a higher wattage (220w?) PSU to the plug of my current 180w, 1) if this is even feasible, and 2) If this is a terrible idea than could cause damage to my laptop. Additionally, I would be greatly appreciative if anybody knows about a source for power supplies that run in the range of 220+ watts, and would be willing to share the aforementioned source with me. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Additionally, if anybody has done any aftermarket modifications to their GT70 to improve cooling performance, or any laptop for that matter, I would love to see, as I am hoping to do something of the sort to my laptop as well. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. -Emma
