There comes a time in a person’s life when they encounter something or someone who makes them stop, scratch their head, and ask “why?” This is one of those moments. Behold, some brave soul installed a ginormous CPU cooler onto his Surface Pro 3.
Utilizing a Dark Rock CPU cooler, which offers top of the line performance-to-noise ratio, this virtually inaudible double-tower CPU cooler works excellently for overclocked systems and demanding multi-graphic platforms. In other words, it’s designed for that powerhouse PC you have on your desk — you know, the one that has 3 NVIDIA Titan X GPUs in SLI mode.

With some thermal paste and some masking tape, the cooler holds its own weight perfectly on the Surface Pro 3.
The Surface Pro 3 can get hot from time to time, but this may be taking things a bit too far. We’re expecting to see benchmarks and noise comparisons soon, so stay tuned. In the mean time, check out a few photos of this huge CPU cooler installed on a Surface Pro 3:
