    10/100 Switch extreme cooled?

    Ugh... The things we get up to on a wet day :| Me and some friends are planning to use some form of extreme cooling (Probably Dry-Ice, unless we all find some money for Liquid nitrogen

    Anyway, would anyone like to see the pics when we've done it? Probably do it next weekend...

    I'll bet the switch will be able to reach that 3GHz now

    Are you going to LN2 the whole thing? And are you going to replace the clock generator, or what?

    I agree with sandman, you'll spend the cost of a phase change unit in dry ice in under a year. If you're really serious about exteme cooling, go peltier.

    Edit: reread post, ur supercooling a switch?!?!, what the h*ll for?

    I think this is just for a day, are you talking about cooling an ethernet card?

    I'm guessing this is just a fun thing

    ALTHOUGH, cooling a switch should allow for better transfer speeds..

    Course your limited by Network cards on both ends
