the eventual heat might do it.. but only half so.. i would suggest just doing it for the purely controlled method ya know?
it should cook fine aswell if you like cover the GPU with a towel lol

im talking about leaving the fans unplugged until the 2 lights blink, then wait 2 minutes and unplug. Why is that not recommended? most tutorials i read on this site have that step it it.
I have done it to a couple boxes and never had a problem... The box im currently using now has xclamp and was over heated.

you take the fans off and u overheat it. just a question, what did you x-clamp? both gpu and cpu or just gpu?
i used the fan on the cpu method because i didnt want it overheating as i didnt replace any clamps on the cpu.... I let it overheat for a good 4 minutes. with heatsink ON of course.

If you're gonna heat them up, use a hot air reflow workstation and do it properly, or not at all. You'll just delay the inevitable that in 3 months time you'll be doing the same thing over again.

yes you're right, its not as good as a hot air reflow but seeing as though this can last up to a year, why not?
