Default Wanting to mod my PS2, Any ideas?

This thread is just to get away from the "other" thread.

I have the original huge PS2 so I was thinking of good cooling and case mods.

So I need some ideas and a little info on the Modder world.

I don't know what a good mod would be for a PS2. I too have one of the originals, and I was thinking of a cool project for it myself.

I wonder if its possible to add memory too it? Like adding RAM to a computer to make it run faster.

If you want to make people think you are crazy, try a water cooling system.

Seems a bit crazy, so I thing just some cooling fans would do. And plus I think the PS2 has a different sort of mechanism to hold the Heat sink Down.

Just Looking around google for a mother board map, still haven't found one yet.
Anyone have one?
