    You know, a radeon 9600 pro is like not even $80. And you wouldn't need to put wood in your PC with that.

    I have a RADEON 9200SE and my PC sucks so much it's not worth the $80, it's only worth the $1 case fan and the $0.20 icecream.

    Well, do you know if the stick is a popsicle stick, an ice cream stick, a fudgesicle stick or an orange creamsicle stick? I think you would achieve the highest performance if you used an orange creamsicle stick.

    Especially if you slapped a Type R sticker on it.

    A good friend of mine and I put a Honda B18C1 (GSR) Engine in a 2 door honda civic dx last summer. It is cool. But it got a lot faster when we stuck a GSR emblem under "Civic" on the back end. I swear!

    here is what you do:

    1) pick up towel
    2) grip tightly with both hands
    3) when in the proper position moves arms up
    4) after going up for about 2 seconds go down for 4 sec
    5) repeat this motion and speed up if needed.

    If you find that this job is to hard for you find either a hobo or person you can beat up and make them do it.

    Don't they make liquid-cooled computer rigs? There ya go!

    If you're not looking into spending much cash, I would also recommend you use an Orange Creamsicle stick.

    Actually, I would recommend looking into the local dumpster :) You can find many sticks there.

    A friend of a friend of mine once had an interesting cooling method. He had one of those cooling devices that used water. He replaced the water with red wine. Then attached a straw (somehow) to the whole thing so he could sip from it.

    Apparently it was lots of fun. :rolleyes: Needless to say, his comp was fried after only two days. It was all part of pulling off a (profitless) guarantee scam. I never did find out if they accepted it. Heh, eccentrics... gotta love 'em.

    Water cooling is a good coolling solution but unless hes willing to pay lots of money for it (which he already said he isnt) then its no good. Also it takes a lot of work to maintain and set up. And u also need the right parts for it. You cant just buy a water cooling kit and slap it together. To get the best results u want to set it up first
