If you had a computer in the early 90s you are probably familiar with the 'turbo' button computers used to have. They never seemed to do much, but we always made a point of having the turbo system turned on regardless of whether or not we could see the difference in performance.

Today's post features a computer that really does have a turbocharger, but of a different sort. The modern computer doesn't really need this little bit of automotive equipment, but with a little work, a turbocharger (really little more than a glorified fan) can be turned into a cooling system for high speed (often overclocked) computers.

There more pictures of the computer here and a link to the construction information.

I really don't think I'd want to do this myself, but it's kindof a neat, if quirky, way to setup your computer.
