good idea i suppose

a friend told me that he recently tried using several fans and water cooling on his PC CPU, he froze the chip to -40 degrees C! the chip refused to work so cold

Fan noise bugs me.
My kid's playstation2 has the fan tweaked by me with a diode, and makes much less noise than in original form.
But still it's audible.
I put a diode there because the PSU for the fan has so little current that even with a 10ohm resistor it refuses to work.

This is got to be the second physics world-wonder after the "perpetuum mobile".
You obviously meant "liquid nitrogen cooling" not watercooling.

Thanks...nice site...and I managed to catch the dcibel dungeon on top...in the midst of all the tiny text...quite a well done website...though the pictures caould be clearer though...and the amp could use an option for a volume control...
