Overclocking results vary from silicon to silicon. Some switch's I'm sure will be able to handle a modest overclock without generating any more heat than a less-well-binned switch.

That being said, it might be worth waiting until a few more of us have tried it to get a good idea of where the "safe"-ish clockspeed & package temps are.

Nintendo has always been cutting every corner possible with their hardware. Do you really think someone there said "Hey, let's have this cool airflow or extra fan just in case someone wants to run homebrew at 1.5 Ghz?" Probably not. Nintendo is always doing the bare minimum to have their own crap run, PERIOD.

You better have an amazing extra fan and whatnot ready to handle it, or get ready to see an army of swollen switches hitting second hand shelves or ebay soon. Are you sure you want to play with fire only to get a few extra FPS?
