Had an older desktop that kept overheating, so I just chucked the case, hung it on some wire shelving and it works like a charm. The next step is to get an adaptor for the laptop screen so that the whole thing is self contained and will only have the power cord hanging off of it. This was just a trial run and I may find a better way to hang everything, other than zipties. Ont eh other hand, it's a superior kludge this way, I just need to incorporate some duct tape...

"We tried again, but with liquid nitrogen. My coworkers halve already threatened me if I go near their liquid argon supply. This is what happens when scientists get toys to play with. Inside the cooler is a plastic jar with liquid nitrogen up to a mid-point in the jar. The fan blows down into the jar, and the cool air comes off the side out of the second fan."

"Hey man, the cooler's broken again. What should we do?"

"... Go get some science, we'll use that!"

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.
