I saw this on Slashdot.

I have wanted to do this project for a few years now. While it’s was a relatively quick build, the time from the photo shoot to publish has been an extremely long and rocky road. Regardless in the end we have produced the first ionic cooling system for your high end gaming system. This system produces absolutely no noise and in fact has no moving parts at all. While this is a proof of concept it proves that you can get the CFM you need to cool a system efficiently with no moving parts and no increase in power consumption.

Interesting, but I have a few thoughts.

Is it just me, or are there no IDE drives in the case?

Running ionic particles through your PC doesn't seem like the best idea. They already had negative static buildup on the heatsink, but what about other parts that you can't so easily ground?

He's using a pair of 4 GB ram drives in RAID 0. It looks like the entire drive bay area is used for the cooling system, except for a single drive bay at the top (he's using a floppy).

I saw that, but that's not IDE drives. Would suck to have no CD-ROM. I guess they make USB versions or something, but still... :?

Yeah, I don't see why anyone would opt for a floppy over an optical drive. Maybe that's what they had lying around?
