they are mostly correct on that BUT the lens in front of the 10 or 12.5 MP sensor is only big enough to clearly show on a small part of it lol

my D3000 actually gets full use of that 10MP

Ok, should have realized this in the first place. Two corners point out like most fans then the other two point in. This is why using a Dremel or some other cutting tool would be tough. Here is the other corner:
I would cut or grind out the corner (gusset?) between the front and back sections to end up with something more like a regular fan. Or go with the longer screws. The easiest way I could think of to measure for the screws would be like you said, but with a dowel or the stick part of a q-tip. Add a 16th to an 8th for the threads and use washers if they end up a hair too long.

I followed a similar upgrade path with my 386 too. I remember getting a couple of year old 1M Paradise VGA card from my father's company that was $1800 new. I had the same SoundBlaster card in mind. I have fond memories of writing down every used IRQ and DMA channel in the system so that I could set the jumpers on it before I installed it. I added a CD drive not too long after. I still have a bunch on those memory chips too.



Do you have one of these:



I threw mine out a few months ago because I needed more room in my home office. I tired to donate it to a computer museum, but nobody wanted it. I should have kept it and case modded it to fit something newer and more than 50MHz. I still all of the 5.25" full-height drives that were in one of the external storage cabinets.
HA!!! Are you kidding? Right now we live in 14ft x 60ft trailer. That thing wouldn't even have room here. I gave it to a school when they still thought it was worth something. I recently gave about 6 cases, motherboards and processors to the community college just to be able to move around better. I might have 1 5 1/4 drive left, won't really know 'till we move. That didn't last long!

The biggest hunk of history we still have is a Panasonic 24pin Dot Matrix printer that can handle spread sheet sized paper. Other than one pin missing it still works fine.

Jolly-Swagman still has one of the original Sound Blaster CD drives and it works! Check out those links in his sig line, it's in one of those builds. Dang IRQ's drove me nuts!! What did we have, like 10? Then Windows 3.1 would re-map the DMA's and I'd have to start all over. That Sound Blaster kit was what, around $500-? Now you get a x 16 DVD writer for $22-.

The thing I miss the most was DOS4GW, I loved writing up a custom menu so that when the system would boot, we could hit a number or highlight it, then go straight into any game, Windows or Dos we wanted.

If you were 4 when those no-display boxes came out that means you were born around what, '81 or was it '79? Can't be '79, that's when I went to Germany. Between '81 and '83, right?

Ok, Striker, you do know that if you take the photo in RAW, you don't have to mess with the white balance. You can do that post production. Low ISO, hmmm, does that camera even have a 50 setting? That's what we had to use on Kodachrome.

Well, I just replaced the TIM on one of the 480's I have. Maybe when I get back I'll post a pic, it actually wasn't bad, I've seen much bigger globs in pictures.

lowest it goes is 100. and i do know i can do it after the fact with the RAW file format but i like getting as much done in the camera as i can. my computer doesn't like PS too much. and i know verry little about how to use it any way... but im learning.... slowly lol

....just cut out the #$%& block ( like a "V" for in the corners' ) with a good, Sharp Stanley knife ( or equivalent ) . . . . . and commence using your screw's . . .

Here's my finished side panel window, the one the local glass place made and messed up with the measurements/centering of the holes. It will be used until I can get a CAD for this window to give the plastic company so they can whip one up on the CNC for me.



This beast is SILENT. I have to remove my headset, shut off everything else in the room and actually listen for the fans before I can hear anything. Getting rid of the OEM side-panel window makes a world of difference, because that stupid vent design causes all sorts of noise and allows too much un-filtered air in the case.

The rear and top exhaust fans are blowing room-temp air out at idle, but my idle temps for the three video diodes and overall CPU temps are currently...39c / 36c / 36c / 36c...in that order. The video diode temps aren't anything special, but the overall CPU temp is a bit high for being idle and at stock clocks. I may have to re-seat that H50 and see if that drops the temp. Ambient room temp I believe is around 78f. At night my over CPU idle temp has dropped down to around 29-30c, so maybe the ambient temp is a little higher than I thought and is actually having that much of an impact, guess I'll have to run a few more measurements to be sure.

Next on my list of things to do...have the new side-panel window made, patch up all the open areas of the case that allow too much un-filtered air in there, figure out where to stuff all the PSU wiring, make a false floor, order a second 5830, build a custom water cooling setup for just the two GPUs while leaving the Corsair H50 on the CPU, and remove the metal from the rear and top fan areas of the case to increase exhaust airflow. I may also try to do some front panel modding because the design of the front panel allows a ton of un-filtered air in through the bottom.

....Hey, for being a "lightly_mess'd-up" one, It look's to be pretty good, there. . .
