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.

Myself, I built a desktop a while back and I probably dust it once a year, but also do a mild cleaning whenever I upgrade a part. Usually just a simple wipedown and a couple of blasts from the ol' air canister and I call it good. What about you guys? Any special tips you use for getting rid of the gunk?

(bonus points if you post your own rig)

We don't need a warrant, a SATA cable or an anti-static wristband. We're coming in.

From the Submitter: I made this contraption to keep my laptop from overheating. It cooled from 69ºC to 39ºC within ten minutes. And yes, those are 2.1 kV transformers. And yes, that's a roll of duct tape.

Let me label that for you:

1: Laptop that he just can't let go of. 2: Books that he tried to read and failed. The Silmarillion (left) and Ulysses (right). 2 - again? come on dude, you only had to count to 5: Anyway, mentioned above. 3. CPU fan stolen from parent's desktop. 4: The crowning achievement of the piece, almighty duct tape.

This is a much more important use for a parachute rip-cord.
