Well I was at work at the gas station tonight and I had an interesting thought. Employees are allowed to have all the free nachos and soda we want, and when you're 18, nachos and soda is ALL you want. Anyway, I went and got myself a mountain dew and some nachos. The only importance of the mountain dew is to explain my mindset, I was hyped up on caffiene.

THE CHASE

My nachos started off very delicious, with a nice warm and gooey cheese that made the mouth water. However after a few customers (pesky things) interrupted my snack I noticed a distinct drop in temperature of said nacho cheese. Another customer or two and my once scrumptiously hot cheese was now cold and lumpy.

CONCLUSION

Nacho cheese is wondeful at dissapating heat. THEREFORE I shall endevor to make a heatsink out of nacho cheese, or perhaps use it as a coolant in my water cooling system...



**EDIT** And just think, if it doesn't work out you're halfway to a concilliatory snack!

LOL, that's about as bad as the guy cooking eggs on his Athlon!
Don't use the Salsa/Cheeze style, the vinegar in it will conduct..:beer:

Looks like he actually did. There were play by play pics of it..

He made a little tray of aluminum foil, and placed it on the horizontal cpu...Cracked the egg into it then booted.

His pics showed it cooking...Then he made up a nice egg sandwich with a little brown sauce, and ate it!

Funny thing is, his attempt to kill the poor Athlon failed...it booted fine after replacing the hsf!

Highly NOT recommended though...

Sure looked like he coocked the egg, amazed he didn't fry the XP, but there again claims it still worked. Wish I had the disposable income to test it out.

Nahhhhh! Kind of a late developer are we? :D



That heatsink he made, the pennies were UK pennies, high copper content, he would've probably succeeded in killing his chip with US or Canadian pennies.

OK So not ALL I want... I could use a ne XP setup as well... ;)

For Silversinksam, I've seen you post the thermal properties of various materials... any chance you know the properties of cheese?

how about, rig your water cooling setup to run from the
slushee machine!!!!

think of the incredible cooling with blue berry tropica going
through your pipes!

That would be nice... but I'm having a hard enough time keeping my hands off the cheese block, if I had a slushy here to go along with it... hmmm, I'm getting hungry...

Maybe y'all r missing the obvious...Eggs in a aluminum pan make for a great cooling set up...Get your favorite folding/seti machine and cook eggs on the cpu...feed your family and do some good for Science....I bet my T-bird could cook a couple of Tofu dogs in no time....Overclockerscafe.com..LOL:p

What have I started? This was supposed to be comedic relief at like 2:00 AM, but now perhaps we've stumbled onto something, would a slushy machine be a good addition for a watercooling setup? Relatively compact, very quiet, and very cold. The slush section could be used as a reservoir find some way of hiding a pump so it looked like it just flowed out of the opening for the slush... hmmm

So customers would be the thermal compound of your cheesesink ? :p :p :p :beer:

No, I believe a cheese (velveeta perhaps) which melts at a lower point than the sink material would be used as thermal compound.

make some methane slushee and youd have one cool
CPU, just dont let the customres mistaken it, theyd have
a bad tummy ache.
