While most people's response to an overheating laptop would naturally be to send it in for repairs, Instructables member "Jack Ruby" decided to do things a little differently and take matters into his own hands, creating a water cooling system that is at once highly impractical and oh so right. As Mr. Ruby himself says, however, mixing water and electronics isn't always the best of ideas, so this strictly a proceed at your own risk deal. That said, if you're brave enough to risk electrocution and an even more damaged laptop, you can build the entire rig for far less than the repair bill would cost, and lay claim to the only computer mod that makes use of a gerbil hydration unit. Just don't blame us when you get "delayed" on you next visit to the airport.
