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: 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.
