    From what I've heard, if you send it off to Nintendo, they will charge you something like $200 to fix it if they find "illegal software" (i.e. homebrew) on there. (Under warranty or not) IIRC, that price was before the price for a new system dropped to $199, but I bet it's still close to the cost of a new unit. Google "Wii Cooling Fan" and see what comes up. There's lots of things to try for around $20 or less.

    Also, I remember reading that even virginizing you Wii won't work, they will still detect that something was there. Something to do with IOS0 I think.
