If so, you might want to invest in one of these:

Nah, my cpu's just a tiny little thing, about 2" x 2". My big cases come with rollers, though.:D

my high school computer science teacher thought that the CPU was all the components inside the case, shows you how crap she was.

Not really I just cut a hole in a cereal box and ducktaped the fan in there and stuck a Tt 92mm on the back so it could push and counter act the torque

Sorry, I have my desk balanced carefully on 3"x3"x2" blocks to make it high enough to fit my full tower under. If I raise my desk high enough to use on of those things, then I'll have to put my chair on blocks to be able to comfortably reach the keyboard... Then imagine what would happen if I lean back too far :eek:

I'd be afraid to put just my CPU on that thing. What if a kid comes along and desides to go for a ride on the card? That would be the quickest core-crusing ever!

You'd need a centrifugal blower to make an effective hovercraft. Ducted axial fans are less effecient. If you get some small nidec blowers (4 or 5), building materials, 1 servo, and a 2-4 channel radio you could build a 2 pound hovercraft.
