    Ok, that's an extremely old laptop, so you could probably risk losing it.

    Its not practical, even for a high end notebook that you may play games on costing 2500usd+.

    at least you had fun.

    Cooling pads are much better and work really well, but I must say, it's a great idea.
    I hope none of the tubes ever leak!

    New Horizons

    And yet others look out to the horizon and ask, "is it still actually a laptop, with all the plumbing hanging out of it, and a heaksink hanging off it"?

    So, to me it looks like the ugliest desktop I've ever seen, but with paranoid delusions of laptop-hood".

    Sorry, but if you must, feel free to sing the party-pooper song in my honor.

    Is that Mickey Mouse on the lid?

    That's one of my pet chickens- the same picture I use as my avatar.

    As for whether or not it is a laptop, you can put it on your lap and use it, so I guess so :)

    The reason he is so cranky, is because he was born without an imagination and lacks the skills necessary to pull anything like this off.

    I say great job Techno! I bet it was fun to make :)

    Edit: Is that an old gateway?

    Hot glue?! Obviously you don't know how much epoxy I used (look at the waterblock) ;)

    That looks like it must have been pretty fun to build, and despite its being a little, rough round the edges shall we say, it's still awesome because it has a chicken.

    On a more serious note, did you actually notice any significant temperature improvements?

    I actually don't know about the temps yet. I haven't found any software that will detect a temp diode on the CPU or motherboard. Also, windows is not working at the moment, and I'll have to get an external cd drive to reinsall it. Contidering how tiny the heatsink on it was, I imagine there was a fair improvement though.

    Falling of the horizon.....and party pooping

    oh cap I stand utterly flabbergasted on the heels of such an egregious and provocative insult. I believe that your obfuscation and subterfuge demonstrate your proclivity to scoff at and rudimentarily decimate the ingenuity of the proletariat. Your aptly self named title has shown that you are as bombastic as you are Querimonious. and have take this occasion to unleash your truculent attitude and prolific vocabularic** [ sic ] prowess.

    huhhh huhhh what do you think? I think it's reminiscent of Henry Miller circa 'Maloch'
    I claim the right much as Willy Shakespeare did in creating a word when I could not find on that properly conveyed the picture I am attempting to verbally paint.
    now if you will excuse me...the nurse is here. :D;):wave:

    **Vocabularic\ \vō-ˈka-byə-ˌler-ē, ic : possessing and or in control of a large library of words and expressive techniques.

    ***and add an 'f' to the title

    Wow..........

    There was a sort of stupid thread that went on for pages about "the world's most important question, is the glass half empty or half full". Pity you were not here, as the issue would have been resolved with great immediacy and efficacy, for verily the answer is, that thou art truly full of it! "Good Night Sweet Prince...." For thee a Willy tidbit.

    Whaa, you're not gonna take credit for being "full of it", it was actually meant as a compliment!

    Pehaps I should have replied thusly, "OK, my b***s are broke, you can stop now"!

    Chicken....I have to say it.

    Your NUTZ!!

    Of course I mean that in a good way I hope you know. I got some laughs out of it, and that isn't easy. Made me laugh about as much as the last time I read about someone squeezing 1khp out of a Ford 5.0L (302ci). It can be done if you're nutz and you are meticulous to details and choice of parts and how you fabracate parts that don't exist....

    By the way, your chicken is cute, but I prefer Road Island Reds myself, eggs are better and so are the meat. Then again you described them as "pets" so the past probably doens't apply.



    thank you for your time;
