    Why not fix the problem rather than mask it with a temporary bandaid?

    Take the cover off until you fix the problem.

    Maybe even put a fan blowing on it.

    Kill Ben.
    Sell his body to a medical researcher and use the money to upgrade your HSF and case cooling.



    And lose the modem.
