"We received a shipment the other day with dry ice packed to keep it frozen. We did the same USB fan trick that was sent in by Acidcow, but amped it up a notch. We cut a hole in the side of the cooler, and aligned the dry ice packs to allow maximum airflow around them, then propped the lid open so that air is drawn in from the top by the fan, cooled by the dry ice, and blown on the computer user forthwith."

Consider me henceforth impressed!

From the submitter:

A roll of plastic and three hours later, we could completely turn off one of the cooling units, which had been on full blast for years. The servers now breath in only cold air from the cooling units, and the cooling units only warm air from the servers.

Frankly, I am shocked and appalled that they found the blueprints to TIFI's server room.

For those of you who might be a little bit confused, a GPU heat sink is supposed to look a little something like this. The one pictured is about as useful as a fan with no blade!
