Hmmmmm, how to cool that overheating CPU, if only there was a solution...

Similar thing can happen in the UK too. Some years ago during a hot summer, the area around Carnaby Street in London was blacked out due to overheating transformers in Carnaby Street main substation. The "cure" was to drape plastic hoses over the cooling fins with tiny holes punched into the hose along its length, and the hose connected to a cold water tap.
