    1. That pink stuff looks like the sprayable packing foam, they used to use to ship CRT monitors or other things you dont want moving around in a box. Looks like someone forgot to wrap it in plastic before releasing the foam!!! Or something melted.

    1. Yeah, #8 is just a case mod for a 2-slot serial port (note the null adapter in the first slot). I’ve Overclocked and fried many a computer by doing exactly that.

  4. Maybe I’m just ignorant, but the Nesquik one doesn’t look that bad…annoying to clean off, yeah, but it probably wouldn’t destroy your computer.
