    I think this is pretty pointless because it's not that functional, but it does look kinda cool...

    If you read the FAQ though, he's not man enough to pump water through his computer. Like me.

    I say it's lame, but not quite rice. It would be rice if it was just a program that made your computer play BOV sounds when you receive instant messages. :p

    LOL. He needs to get an RC car engine that spins 42,000 RPM or more to spool that baby up and get some air REALLY moving. THAT would be hillarious. He's basically just using the turbo as a case fan externally for shock factor. Interesting idea, not practical AT ALL.

    Oh, well. Props for being creative. Every different idea has naysayers.

    Also, I hope he's got oil in that thing! Those bearing will seize up if he doesn't! :shock:
