I'd probably do that, looks like the computer could use replacing anyway.
My Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 64 cpu fan died, so I decided to zip-tie a 80mm fan right through the heatsink. Actually does a decent job, but in the future I think i'll just mate a more powerful 80mm with the AC Freezer shroud and hook it up to a front panel fan controller, so I can manually control the fan speed instead of the motherboard.
Five out of five food stamps . Seriously, that is fucking awesome.I pulled this LG monitor out of a trash can. That is pretty ghetto right there. I figured out that the back light was broken. Usually I would replace the capacitors with higher quality ones and that would fix it. But those cost money, and I wanted to do this for free. So I took some old computer CCFL inverters and hacked them in. Being too lazy to open up the monitor and make it look nice, I just zip-tied them to the outside and put some tape on them.
If that's not ghetto enough, I also am using the power supply from my computer, so I have to plug in a molex from the monitor to the computer.
But, it works!
