I actually havent taken the thing apart yet. But if the LEDs are on the fan then I guess I could just replace the whole fan. If its built into the PSU then that is when I would have a problem.

BTW, yeah the LEDs in the PSU are blue.

With the tie rap being flat I'm thinking it will thread thru it with little or no damage to the fins. JUst cut the locking head off a tie rap to lock the thru tie rap down
If I cant think of a way to make a good looking bracket then I will use the zip ties. I just wanted it to look and feel a little more permanent.

Thanks guys!

Any other ideas?

HA! That is by far the funniest post I've read on all these forums! ROTFLMAO!! The best response to a totally serious post & I hate dirty humor. Oh bull, I love any humor. The funniest thing I've seen other that Judy Tenuda live was Sarah Silvermans skit where she sings then her Vag sings, then her butt sings, then they all sing together.

Vertigo you get the joke of the day!

Yep, 2 bodys, 2 different states, one idea. Oh, one exception, make it a black tie so it blends in with the V8.

Ok, did you guys know that you can cut the LED's and get some of the color you want from an electronics store or The Shack and hot or cold glue them in front of the old ones? I think this is lots cheaper than a $10- fan, maybe 12¢ per LED.

The only more permanent thing I can think of is using one of the compounds that they sell in the hardware stores. It's a putty, you slice off a piece, mash it up good and use a little bit to bind the fan (in the holes) to the V8 but that stuff is permanent, I've used it to stop leaks. You'd have to chip it away to get it out.

Eek, there's been so much going on since I last showed my face here :S hehe a bit too much to go through atm to see and catch up on what's been happening.

I trust all is well and still enjoying their scouts (hehe that's a silly question, of course you are)

I havn't done much my side, picked up a different waterblock for the cpu, so that might get installed... that's all really...

Why is the V8 so popular, especially with the storm scout crowd? Is it cause it's somehow "completing the set?" It seems overpriced for the level of performance it brings. I can't argue on the looks however.

When I first got my Scout I used the V-8, it wasn't bad and it wasn't good, more middle ground, in my case though I only used it for the looks, I just wish it had chrome pipes.

I agree with you completely.. Its just so damned purdy. I mean Look at this thing... and if you have a 550 Dually it's perfect for that because you could run that processor naked




Ooopss.. That's the Wrong V8....... Here it is.




And look at this freakin DESK... REP UP

Oh, and BTW Enigma, I just noticed there's no O-6 rank on the front page. It goes straight from O-5 (commander) to O-7 (1 star admiral), any reason why? Just an observation


I hate Birds... Na.. I never noticed. I guess no one has risen yet to that level.
The Three Generals are the three of the People that started this thread and were equally instrumental in The Survival of it. But all of the other ranks have had to work their ways up. There is no Colonel Now because no one has earned that status. But it will happen one day. That I am sure of. I hope this answers your question.
