    The Alienware Area 51m is a pretty fast laptop, but by combining our janky chiller and Steve's overclocking skills we think it can be way faster.

        You cannot touch the compacitor even when the AC unit is off. It will have to be discharged first.

            I would love to see a mashup! Use your subzero cooling system to cool a mineral bath that houses all the components! AND WE SHALL CALL IT "THE ARCTIC OIL SPILL"! You should be able to run the coolant through radiators in the mineral oil bath to drastically bringing the entire system's temp down! In theory this should also prevent any moisture buildup on the components as the outside of you tank is where the system would build condensation /sweat.

              Why can’t y’all figure out a way to mount that unit the correct orientation so that the sweat from the cooling block would drip harmlessly away from the comp?

                                                Use some grease when tapping screws. Makes it easier and less annoying. Also, wearing gloves and working with machine tools is actually pretty dangerous. You might not have a good grip on what you are sawing or drilling and the piece could slip.

It's like when someone asks you for your help with a problem, one that you can easily fix, but then they get someone else who supposedly has more knowledge or experience to fix it than you do. It's that attitude of like... Dude why are you even here, I got this. It's so funny to watch. lol
