5850's base clocks are only

Gulftown has been out for a few weeks now, Pc's have already shipped with it. You have to have some chunk of change in your wallet though because the price ranges from $999- to $1299- of course depending on who you get it from. It's exactly what they promised, smaller, faster, better, more cores. The only thing that can use that many cores is folding@home though, so there isn't a whole lot of point right now. Once they mess up a few batches they'll probably selll them with locked multipliers, slower speeds and perhaps there will be programs that can use those cores. As far as I know, the only thing that can use 8 cores other than folding is Mathematica.

1.7 billion transistors on a 248mm square in a 32nm process, can you imagine how fast electricity slams those gates open and shut? It's boggling, when I was a kid 1 trasnistor was a tube in a radio or a television. How small will they go before there is too much leakage? Some say only 22nm.

Here's the only review I've seen but I'm sure they're out there: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fea...ntel_rolls_six

@IR Nice mod, is that your ceiling or do you have a really big skylight?

@Striker. I like the stripes but I think the point the guy made about airbrushing is valid, if you use anything but an airbrush you'll block any venting those parts do. If you just mean the very side corners then I say go for the vinyl, it should look great! A tip, when you lay the vinyl on, lightly mist the sticky side and squeege out all the water as you press it on. This will help you avoid bubbles in the vinyl.

Ok guys, you gotta check this out for me. Ok, this may or not be a case mod. I mean it's a mod of my personal case, not my computer case. So, I go to the prosthetist today and get casted, they use fiberglass now instead of plaster. Very neat, clean and it's more exact because the fiberglass sets up much harder, of course. So, it'll be at least 2 weeks before I even have a test socket to try on. In the meantime, he gave me this to think about. I can have any of these patterns laid into the outer layer as a laminate instead of them trying to make a skin tone.

These are the patterns: http://www.fredslegs.com/lamstyles.htm

You have to understand my leg isn't what you normally see on an amputee, mine is a Symes, meaning it's at the ankle. It s*#@'s because it's not as versitile and they can't adapt it as easily, meaning I have a lot more problems and when my weight changes they have to do a total re-build instead of just a new socket.
So this is how my leg looks, you can see how much is normally showing between the sock and the sleeve: Attachment 151589

Mindy and I think the light colored wood would be the best. You know, wooden leg and all! We also like Snake, Digital Camo & Animal print. I personally like Blue Static, but you have to consider that you have to wear clothes to match. Or do you?? The old stuff which is just a pigment changes color within a few months and you end up with a 3 toned socket with mine being so long. So, whatdaya think??

Oh sheesh, guess what? I have another option to make. I mean, I'll get this prosthesis anyway but I can also go in for elective surgery and get my amputation shortened to a BK (below the knee). The benefits are: Better, lighter legs, with feet and ankles that have more movement and hold on better and if I loose or gain weight, they only change a small part instead of the whole thing. One other possible improvement is that it could reduce my pain levels a great deal because I don't have all that plastic pushing in on my leg.
The bad side: It's surgery, it's removal of a bone and a part of the body, any surgery is dangerous but these guys have had a lot of practice since the Iraq war started. The other is that I'll be on crutches or a wheelchair for at least 6 weeks, maybe 3 months before they can do a new prosthesis.

Would you choose to have this kind of surgery knowing that it could drastically change your life?

TIA,
Bri

If your suffering will ensure a better quality of life then I say do it, but think on this and I know I'm kinda comparing apples to oranges, but the "mechanics" behind the thinking are the same. If you have a brain tumor that will surely kill you in ten years with only a slow reduction of life quality would you have an experimental surgery that could add 5 years to your life with little or no increase in life quality or leave you in a vegetative state and kill you in three years with a 50/50 percentage in your favor. Would you do it? You'll have to tell us Bri. After all you live in gambling central. Do you feel lucky, well , do ya?

Damn, Bri..

I was thinking the same thing. First I would go with the Tanned leg. Then the Light colored wood. Then i liked the Mossy Oak and then the Snake skin looks wild.. I like all of those that you listed.

Now about the Cpap. If I was her Doctor and she came to me with the problem that you are talking about I would get her this one . That would solve the problems all the way around.

Upcoming Weekend Project: April 23rd or 24th

Materials:
  • (3) Noctua P-12 120mm
  • (1) Noctua P-14 140mm

PC fan installation placements:
  • (1) Noctua P-12 120mm: Pull H50 radiator
  • (1) Noctua P-12 120mm: Push H50 radiator
  • (1) Noctua P-12 120mm: In-tank at top/front of case (optical drive bay)
  • (1) Noctua P-14 140mm: In-tank at bottom/front of case

Side note:
I wasn't planning on purchasing the rest of my Noctua fans all at once. With the combination of Amazon's 3-pack P-12's + the wife going out of town without me this weekend, I thought this would be a nice soothing project.

Recently I have come across a few members with questions about the Scythe Kama Bay. Since I will be replacing the CM R4 120mm in my Scythe Kama Bay with a P-12, I will be taking pictures along-side my project. Hopefully, this will answer some of questions some may have about the product.

Also, I will try using the SSD/Floppy cage (included with the CM Scout) to mount a 120mm or 140mm fan into the optical drive bays. I'm assuming with this tool (provided by CM) I will be able to take advantage of the tool-less locking mechanism. I believe I suggested this as a viable option (cost free to those who have purchased a CM Scout, retail) to the Scythe Kama Bay. Since I don't like recommending anything I have not used, I will be checking 1 more thing off of the "To do list".

All of the above project details are very simple but fun, none the less!

Anybody else have any Weekend Projects coming up?

i think rocker pretty much summed it up right their.


and because i have to do it.
you NEED to get the wood one. simply so we can call you pegleg

but on a serious note. what every you choose, i, as im sure the rest of the scouts do, wish you much luck if your coming adventure.

and i think it really is an adventure.





and to the rest of you, if you haven't voted yet go check the mod of the month poll. you should vote for me because i love you
