    I think I remember some model insuring her legs. Have you considered going that route with your derriere? J Lo did:


    To the tune of $300,000,000.00 dollars!

    More body part insurees:

    And remember, if it's worth patenting, it's worth insuring!(y)

    Although It's a huge cooler, J Lo's keester makes it look minuscule.

    The Accelero Hybrid II-120 looks infinitely easier to install than the original and does not take as much space either... And I can say that because I've got the original one on my GTX 570... It was harsh but at least a one time install. I also learned it was actually wider than two slots and had to bang out the space on my side panel lol.

    The stabalizer bar is a nice touch for those in traditional tower cases.

    did tina turner had her legs insured?
    and on this backside cooling patent, I predict some Chinese knock offs will turn up but offers additional "sideways" cooling.

    Dude, follow the link I included @ post #4 ;)
  11. ..that J Lo picture is hotter than Hiroshima! I guess it's seriously need a heatsink! :D

    lawl! however, I don't believe that Ornella Muti had a $350,000 **easts insurance policy...unless I see the two mountains. :)

    Courtney Cox was on The Jay Leno Show when "Friends" was still in production. J lo guested on the show, (Friends). Leno asked her about J Lo's backside. Courtney replied sic, "you're never going to ever hear me say this again about another woman but, her a** is riveting"!

    In any case my link claims that Mariah Carey had (has ?) her legs insured for one billion dollars.

    If you've ever heard Carey open her mouth, you'd immediately realize just exactly how self involved she is. So, a billion sounds about match with her ego.

    Anyway, about all you'd have to do, is hitch Lopez and Kim Kardashian to a plow, and you'd swear you were hooked to a team of palomino Clydesdales. (Mares, of course).

    Somewhat related to the topic:
    is there some design variation in which a small PCB is the one 'attached" to a massive heatsink?
    I ask this question since some cpu coolers are so 'heavy' that it bends the PCB mobo when attached.

    I thought a slightly twisted mobo was, "the price of fame", so to speak, when dealing with high wattage dispersion coolers.

    I think "Plan B", is a water block.

    You can't move a CPU, or VGA proc off the mobo, because the speed of electricity, (near the speed of light), is starting to become an issue for memory and other I/O operations. So the distance between the CPU and RAM DIMMs is more or less fixed due to "electrical time/distance".

    Besides, the lower you make the voltage supplied to the RAM, the more it's a good idea to shorten the distance as much as possible to the CPU, to prevent voltage drop. (A little goes a long way in sensitive, low power, low voltage circuits).
