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.

CPU fan stolen from parent's desktop. 4: The crowning achievement of the piece, almighty duct tape.
