From Mainichi Daily: (pictures after the link)

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first broadcast of the “Mobile Suit Gundam” animated television series, an 18-meter-tall, “full scale” Gundam statue is currently being built at Shiokaze Park in Tokyo’s Odaiba.

I was seeing some rather high temperatures on the CPU so I decided to get a new fan. After doing some research I ended up (as always) at zalman’s page, where this little beauty caught my eye:



Not only does it look awesome, it is really really cool. The CPU temp dropped instantly by ~25 degrees compared to the standard out-of-the-box cooler. It was a little bit pricey, but both me and S have burned out machines before using insufficient cooling, so we both agreed that it would be worth it.

It was a pain to install, but now it’s mounted and spinning happily.

The Rig (now even cooler)

Also, did I mention it glows :)

Everyone should have them!!

It’s the kind of machine that makes you want to add sound effects when you’re using it ;)
