Dust Proved to be Deadly for Greg's Computer Fan

Dust Proved to be Deadly for Greg's Computer Fan

Tired of replacing failed fan units on his computer, Greg came up with a new, liquid chip-cooling system that seals out dirt and dust. Coolant is circulated by a free-floating internal blade, which is magnetically linked to a drive piece and electric motor. Heat sinks mounted to the top plate provide additional conductive cooling. Designed for easy retrofitting, the unit simply snaps into place and plugs in.
