Overclocker Develops Hover Computer

Johannesburg, South Africa – Richard Theart, an actuary from South Africa, was surprised to find his newly overclocked PC continuously sliding from it usual position on his desk. After a thorough examination of the chassis, he discovered the problem to be his recently installed array of GlobalWin 200 dm3/min cooling fans.

"By removing the side panels from the chassis, I discovered that the lower weight enabled it to glide easily across my desk," said Theart. "By adding more fans beneath the case, and two on either side to stabilize, the case was more than able to hold itself in position approx. ¼ inch above the ground. I got better stability by gluing balsa wood spoilers to the back and wind vanes to the sides of the casing."
