From the submitter:

The CPU fan on my computer broke. The screw holes of the replacement fan did not match up with the old screw holes in the heat sink (there were notches cut out of the corners, there was nowhere to screw the new fan to). I had to find a way to make my own screw holes for the fan, without impeding air flow.

From the submitter:

I confess, this is my own work. I don't need much of a web-server, so when the old one died, I recycled an old netbook with the aid of a USB drive caddy. The gaffa tape was an added bonus to keep it all together - and prompted this submission.

I'm pretty jealous, TIFI's servers are about half this size and we haven't even been able to upgrade from Scotch tape yet.

From the submitter:

My new video card is rather LARGE, and there was only one slot on the motherboard which could accomodate it. It's VERY close to my sound card (which also cannot be moved), and I noticed a strange "ping..ping..PINGPINGPING" sound coming from the case. All the heat generated inside was making the entire video card warp slightly (this only occurs when playing Fallout 3 with LOTS of mods) and the fan was coming into contact with some of the solder points on the sound board! Yikes!

He had problems with overheating so he decided to fix it with little pieces of plastic? This should end well.

From the submitter:

The silver ducting is from a portable air con unit designed to stop the multi-million dollar machines overheat. The PSU fan on the PC pictured failed, and instead of replacing it, this baby kludge was born from momma kludge to duct cold air into the back of the case.

Hey bro can I borrow some cool air?

Redirects all of it.
