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.
