Reminds me of the fun we had with the severely over populated/loaded
Celebris in FF Gen.* The chip fan gave in and we had to construct a new
cooling process A-Team/Mac Gyver style using a desk fan and a couple of A4
ring binders. The trouble was, we never got to use the Swiss Army knife,
chewing gum wrappers or that soft drink/popping candy combo ;)
The reason for the binders was two-fold:
i. To channel the air onto the processor.
ii. To stop the stuff on my desk flying around the office.
*It has since been replaced with a Gateway box
