    ^^Did you increase the voltage? If the voltage is less than 2-2.1V, there's no chance of damage. Above that, you'll need active cooling.

    Well...."active" cooling solutions are not very easily available....but just add a 80mm or 120mm fan to it....it shouldn't cost you much ;)

    Well you will have to make use of you modding skills for that.. ;) ..

    Hints:Try Using Twin sided tape...
    Try hanging it with a piece of wire, suspend it from the PSU wires...Stick it to the mobo heat sink..
