Most CPU's have a maximum temperature that they can operate at before they fry. Usually it is around 80 to 90 degrees Celsius which is 10 to 20 degrees below the boiling point of water (100 degrees Celsius). So the answer is it would not work,
wish a lot of old threads would get marked solved as fast as this one did ,to bad someone couldn't close it before it get a chance to last 10 yrs or so .
the word stupid was used in the first post ,and it has always been said in help forums that no question is stupid ,but i have to say that doesn't apply here . lol, really though what did you think the fan was on the cpu for ,if you could run the cpu without it , to boil tea ~
.happy new year
