FYI:
If you have a Netflix account, Mortal Kombat the movie was uploaded a few weeks ago. Yes... I watched it again after so many years. Honestly, one of the better (if not best) video game, live action, movies.

YouTube- Mortal Kombat Movie 1 Intro of WIN
Yes, I saw that 2/3 pack, no money right now. I already have 2 140mm Noctua so I'm good. Flawless Victory reminds me of Unreal Tournament 2004 when you don't die during a match.

I just went for a ghetto front intake fan install and thought I'd show a picture or two. It's a 1300rpm asaka super silent pwm fan I had lying around and wanted to see what sort of difference to temperatures I got from this very simple mod. It's held in place by cable ties, pulled super tight on the side with a piece of sponge there for sound dampening, then held in place on the other side by two more cable ties.





Before installing it I had left the metal grills in place in the 5.25" bays but saw no reason to leave them there with a fan. After all the front panel takes care of the dust filtering so I probably should have already removed them. Somewhat annoyingly the 4 pin fan plug wouldn't fit on CHA_FAN1 header because of a little capacator getting in the way of the unused 4th PWM pin, so I had to stick it on PWR_FAN header and thus lose BIOS level RPM control. It just runs at full speed now, but is actually pretty quiet anyway. I may figure out a way to resolve that in the future, probably using a scalpel

Overall I got a 1-2C drop at idle and a 2-3C drop in Prime95 from doing this so I am fairly happy with the result.

Looks good
Why not take the old connector off & get a 3pin connector from a old fan and use that. Push on the little contacts showing on the side of the connector to get them out and then put the pins in a 3pin connector(after using a craft knife or scalpel to lift the little clips on the pins back up before re-inserting).

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
I like the light/dark woods As I was reading the start of your post I was thinking "then why not get it shortened a little", but like you said, its not like modding your car or computer. Its a life changing mod :s
Well what ever you choose to do, I hope it all works out ok and you are comfortable and pain free

Yeah that's a good idea, I have a box where old computer bits go to die and I did rummage around in it for just such a thing. Sadly I found a old dusty 120mm fan with the connecter lead snipped off exposing the wires but no connector itself! The other alternative was a fan with another 4 pin on it.

I'll have another look around, see what I have but if not then it's my trusty +4 scalpel of cutting to the rescue Or maybe I should just get a pack of 3 pin connectors from ebay!

Hey Bri. I wish you the best of luck in whichever route you take. As for the art, I like either the wooden ones or the digital camo. I hope this helps.
