And before you say "think of what a few liters of water could do for little malawi?!?" please remember 2 things, one, as if you havent spent an extra couple minites in the shower from time to time, and 2 clean water poured down the drain is not "wasted", it goes down the drain, into the ocean, evaporates and then falls back down on my head tommorow as rain. I live on Vancouver Island, it rains 8 months a year, I am not going to apologise for living in a place where fresh water falls from the sky

I am not advocating this as a "run all day folding rig" solution, just a "wonder what temps you can get" curiosity type thing.

rant over, I may take the leap on the i7/5 series later this year, so this rig will get this idea tried out on it then.
