I bet it could be overclocked, but the diodes would be the weak link I think. Also, you would have to change out a single resistor (dang, should have made it a variable resistor!) to increase the hardware current shutdown point. Also, the software would have to change. Also, you would need liquid cooling! Hmm... That would be awesome! With synchronous rectification, you could use mosfets instead of the diodes, and they are rated at 120 amps continuous. If the legs could hold out, which are like twice as thick as the diode legs, that would be really cool. I just don't really know how to do it yet. Also, you would need really really good batteries to be able to pull over 1000 amps.
