High CFM fan horror stories... - Page 6

post #51 of 81
I've only once drawn blood from a computer fan. A friend bet me I wouldn't stick a finger in the grill-less fan on the front of my old rig, so I did. I got five bucks out of it too.
I have however been nicked multiple times by 120VAC fans. Those hurt. A lot.

Zalman 9500. This wasn't the worst cut I had over the past week though; I accidentally broke a cold cathode light I didn't notice right away. I was working in the rig, and suddenly blood got over everything. The cut was so clean though I barely noticed it.

You know, it's a real shame I sold my digital SLR to build this rig, as it would have shed some light on how extremely gruesome my desktop was when this happened...

Abilor, you should have at least spread that blood around a bit, you know, to make that Zalman look like it was some kind of finger eater or something.

PS- I was just modding the ole CM690 a bit with a cut off wheel (guard removed), and all I could think about was this thread, and how I'd have to explain actually LOSING a finger!

well so far none of you are as clumsy as me(bugger thats bad for me)whilst being slightly drunk i fell near a friends pc,whilst being slightly drunk,didnt know he had some uber fans!!couple of seconds later i notic3ed the blood all down the side of my face,his bloody cpu fan had ripped a inch and a half patch from my skull,hurt like hell for about 6 weeks!!!




I am surprised there isnt many "delta'injuries,them things are lethal


@carlin:as for pics you can sod off,i still have a bald patch at the side of my head where the fan chewed in,so no way am i gonna advertise it

On my old processor, I was using a stock cooler. I decided to buy a new one, so I figured I would just see if I could safely slow it down with my finger. (Don't ask what I was thinking...) So knowing that it would hurt, and not thinking clearly, i wuickly shoved my finger in... 3k rpm despite breaking all of my fan blades, I received 5 cuts for each blade all up and down my finger.

P.S. don't try working on an old 1980's case that is falling apart... I left more blood on the mobo than I left thermal paste on the processor

before i get to your question..

never really got cuts from fans. but i am dam sure i have had some part of my hand in a fan before lol. not exactly a tickle. have drawn blood working on other peoples computers.. no clue when and where but eventually i see red stuff their case and wonder what it is.. then i look at my hands and go O_o. lol

ok back to your question

yeah i got shocked.. twice (from what i remember). one time i was workin on fixing a 17" crt monitor i had.. colors were goin funky and dark. had it open and plugged in. ow? more recent thing, was workin on cable management on my cm690. had the cathode inverter box open. and cathodes on. was trying to put the box back on.. finger hit something on there.. BZZT. OW. finger was numb for about an hour. (but i still continued working on my case ahaha)

another story but not really with the actual topic of the thread. was working on another computer. was switching the wires around to lwoer fan speed. computer was on (of course.. >_>).. plugged it in.. next thing i saw.. smoke.. (all while the computer was running IN MY LAP).. next thing i noticed.. i was holding onto the end of some wires too (i guess skin is conductive). left two | bubble things on my index finger and thumb. yeah.. those fingers felt like i just got burned or something (i guess i technically got electrical burned?? or something lol)

I have some Comair Rotron 24v ball bearing (Muffin XL's) fans going into my water cooled setup. With these, you may lose the tip of your finger if it gets in there.
