Make you own 68" Projection Monitor!

This Guide Shows you exactly how to build one, Cheap! http://www.tomshardware.com/2004/11/13/supersize_your_tv_for_/


Only thing is there are no where near enough fans. you will need an one hell of a fan to keep this thing cool!
Really! If you only use the one baby fan like this guy did it will be burned up in an hour!

I've seen this before, but I think with a little experience messing around in some college courses maybe I could make one of this in a couple years with help from a professor. Hmm... Good luck with your projection monitor Eclecticos.

Wow thats freaking awesome. Actually I'm thinking of doing that: I found a setup that would only cost $52.84 (Shipping included).

Thats pretty excellent recycling at work !!! :up:

While you were there did you catch the video of the Pentium P4 being run with a clock speed of 5Ghz under liquid nitrogen cooling (http://www.tomshardware.com/cgi-bin/downloads.m?id=11)???

That looks like major fun :)

You think that's fast? This is fast (http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/24/pentium-4-overclocked-to-8ghz-lets-see-your-fancy-core-2-try-t/). And this is even faster (http://www.engadget.com/2007/05/30/oc-team-italy-takes-p4-to-8-18ghz/). 8)
