    A friend of mine said he was going to mod his computer so a CO3 tank is used as the heatsink. He tried to explain that the thing would get rid of his cpu noise and stuff.
    Heh I was wondering, from the extreme heat the CPU emits, wouldnt this eventually allmost cause the CO3 mini tank to overexpand and literally explode destroying everything in his computer like a bomb?

    I thought it was sorta funny, and i would never risk trying this myself.
    I've made CO3 powered cars in shop class for raceing and one of the "lower achiever" students decided he wanted to spray everyone with high pressured air. Now he did punture the tip whilst holding this thing, but even with his godly grib (my ass), he couldnt manage the pressure and it bounced all over the place. very danagerous, but also funny in a way i suppose.

    If he tries this, make sure he videos it. Actually, I suspect his cpu would fail before it exploded, but the heat would still be generated even after failure.

    Just noticed that the box for my last heatsink says "Made in China". That&#39;s probably just about far enough away when it finally goes off.

    Actually ammonia is NH4.

    the best element used in pc&#39;s would have to be silicon Si, since it isnt conductive and allows you to hold all the little parts of the circuit boards together. Heh, i wonder if someone ever built a pc without it and just used wires? that&#39;d burn up soon i suppose

    I should give up on chemistry if I were you, it isn&#39;t your strong suit.
