Heat isn't an issue (for the time being, will overclock and possibly overvolt the card depending on how smoothly I can go without my power supply failing).
Usually they overvolt the thumb-drive, throw an error in XP saying that the USB port has gone beyond spec and has been shut down, and when I pull the thumb drive out its warm to the touch and never works again.
They don't overvolt the processor. there is a heating element under the cpu. ohhh!
The only downside is no overvolt protection and price.
