I like the way blue leds make red paint look. Almost a flourescent type of glow.

My old store-bought Hewlett Packard Pavilion was about 10 years old when parts started failing. I was broke and didn't have any money to replace the parts.

The fan in the power supply was fried, so I took the case fan and taped it to the PSU. Otherwise, the PSU would get hot turn off after 5 minutes. The case fan had previously blown air through a duct onto the CPU's heat sink, and was the only working fan in the system. To compensate for the lack of air over the Pentium4 chip, I moved the power supply, with its taped on case fan, over to the P4's heatsink, and both units shared the same fan. Of course, that couldn't have been the end of my problems.

One of the parts that attached the heatsink to the Pentium4 had snapped off. Without pressure between the CPU and heatsink, the chip overheated and turned off. To get the pressure back on the heatsink, I taped two stone bookends together, and placed them on top of the PSU, which was resting on the heatsink. The rocks were secured with tape.

WOW! I think you win the thread for cooling a computer with one fan and a rock xD how long did that beauty of a fix work for anyways?
