A wire hanger for the frame, rubber bands to stop vibration and a spliced USB cable for power turned this old tower CPU fan into a great desk fan and extra cooling for an overheating desktop mini.

Ice powered AC boost for my hot as crap sever room/bedroom/office. Made entirely from stuff found around the house. I work from home, so changing out the ice every 3-4 hrs when it's in use is no problem. Surprisingly, it's fairly efficient and reduces temp by 5-10 degrees. My 2 servers are grateful.

I put a water-cooled ITX with a 1650 inside a 1982 Commodore pet. I mapped the keyboard too

My NUC keeps overheating so this $3 USB cable spliced to a molex connector does the job nicely.

More coax grounding shenanigans. This time around we have a water hose clamp holding a spade terminal connector to get a ground wire onto the coax terminator. Bonus tour of memory lane in the pics.

My Surface Pro 7 suffered from throttling while playing Hades, so i figured a taped 140mm fan with USB adapter would be the perfect fit

Always keep a random screw bag! Dropped vape and lost middle contact pole from vape. 20 year old HDD torx screw worked perfect!

WiFi dongle gets no signal under my desk and the ethernet port in my room is dead. Solution? Hang the dongle from the wall on a USB extender
