I'm not poking fun, I'm being rational. Doctors and scientists cure disease, not prayer.

my dad was in the second trial before the FDA got to testing the drug and it worked like a charm with almost nothing for side effects


and back on topic
i just updated the work log. you should go check it out.
Heheheheheh!! And a great bigHA!!!
Yeah, I did everything against doctors orders, took out stitches because they hurt, removed staples that they said need a special sterile tool. Nothing 2 pair of pliers couldn't do.
I didn't take the Chemo or radiation but that was totally up to me. All my Oncologist could guarantee was that I'd loose 50% of my heart muscle and never get it back.

Anyway, I later met one of the other survivors, she lost her leg above the knee when she was 12. All her life she had been training to be a dancer, then she got Synovial Sarcoma. I also did herbal chemotherapy and prayer therapy (an actual "laying on of hands"). They can't quantify that scientifically though so they ignore it. Like I said before the biggest thing is, you've got to have a sense of humor.

My step dad's dad (Grandpa Jim) died before Christmas last year, metastasis related to Prostate Cancer. He was a very funny man most of his life but lost his sense of humor in those last years and that's when the cancer consumed him. He fought with it for 8 years, much longer than I would have ever put up with it. I'm glad they're constantly finding new stuff to treat it with. The general idea when I had it was to give you chemo and radiation and kill off most of the cells in your body and hope they grow back without the cancer in them. Targeted radiation, Interluken and other therapies have changed that a great deal.

Take your dad to a hilarious movie and have a laugh on me and know that somewhere in the world you're helping to kill off cancer. Mine's been gone what, 22 years now. Some little thing in my lungs showed up last year but I laughed it off and now they can't find a trace of it. Silly doctors!

I think typically the members have either cut their own plexi-glass or had a professional cut a custom piece. Remove the stock window by unscrewing the pins and swapping them out.

If you mess up, you can always get a replacement window side panel from Cooler Master for (I think) $11.99 + S/H (about $10) but I think the only part you can damage is the window itself (which you are replacing).

Maybe someone who has done this mod already will link you their work log.
Ooooh, guys who have done it..... Jolly-swagman, Kev_b, Photonmoo did it in orange. I think Pathogen X did his. The Austrailians call it Perpex, we call it Plexiglass or Plexi for short, it's usually 3 or 4mm thick stuff. Didn't DevilsX do it recently? The rivets pop right off and you can either re-rivet them or use screws.
It's one of the most common mods for the Scout, a lot of guys don't like those vents that come with it. It really does look better when you take a clean sheet and just cut the fan holes out. That's another reason it's been done, to move the fans forward of the CPU cooler or just to move them period, some have left them out totally. Just flip through the pages fast as you can. I scanned through the first six months and it only took a few weeks.

Yeah, I don't know about this one either. Like Enigma said you could take the p14 out of the middle and put in a 12, that would give you room, if it's enough you could then put the P14 in the Scout's blowhole, it works great there and will help any cooler you install. I know how you feel though, I got a Hyper 212+ to put in Mindy's Scout only to find out thier 1366 mounting system shorts out Evga x58 mobos, the original called just the Hyper 212 had different clips that didn't cause a problem. I had to send it back and I put in an H50 for her, used my reward bucks at Best Buy to get it.

Oh, before Clee jumps in here with his pic. This is how the P14FLX looks in the blowhole:
Attachment 153210

And before you ask, this is what an Enermax Apollish fan looks like in the drive bays: Attachment 153211 That bottom fan is now blue too. This is the old Apollish, they now have 7 light show modes.

Oh yeah!! Welcome to the club!!

@ Rockr. I got Bioshock today, the original. What was the other game you said to get? Was it Deep Space??

@ Everyone who posted games. Thanks so much!!! I don't know if Children will show up here again but if they do we'll be more prepared. Oh, feel free to post more games a 10 year old would like, remember they have to be downloadable and fairly inexpesive.

@ Clee. Great HafX post. Now we can refer everyone to it. Did you click on that guys member link? He has an article about how human waste may power the homes of the future in the U.K.
Don't be too surprised but our scientists are also working on these processes right now. Instead of dumping millions of tons of waste into landfills every year we may some day burn it. Know how much ammonia is in one typical flush of urine? Apparently enough to power the average American home for the average American Evening.


@ Y'all. Re: Corsair. The response they gave me was quite underwhelming. They absolve themselves from any previous claims made by salespeople, tech support people and any ads that were posted late last year that stated the entire HX line of PSU's were "80+ Silver". The HX 650 is indeed only 80+ bronze, despite "accidental mis-labeling" and they won't take it in a trade up agreement for any 80+ silver PSU from thier line. They basically gave me the stank finger and said they don't care. I for one will be changing out all parts from thier company for better quality parts. Enermax has a brand new line of 80+ gold PSU's and I originally wanted Mushkin 1866mhz Ram anyway. Hmmm Mindy's H50, guess I'll have to buy from the company that originally made it Asetek. Who was that company at Cbit that is going to release one this year?? I never have recommended one of thier cases to anyone but when asked in the future I will not recommend Corsair. They don't stand behind what they say or advertise. Sorry if I steered any of you wrong in the past.
Oh, it was Domino, they're going to take the unit that had problems before, upgrade it with a better block than the H50 and release the new version. They expect it to come out mid-year. I'll be recommending that over the H50.
Oh, I'm now on my third Corsair 128Gb SSD, the one that was replaced is now reporting itself as defective with unreadable chips. Digital Storm is going to get yet another support ticket on my rig, man I bet they're tired of me.


This is the song in my sig, this isn't live action but is the most viewed version of this song: YouTube- The Kinks - Lola

Yep, I used a 3mm plexiglass from Home Depot (US). Fairly easy if you've got the right tools.

Here are some pics for whoever asked:

Alternatives to Corsair.......
Domino's cooler: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/318...ler/index.html
Where the CWCH50 really comes from: http://www.bing.com/search?q=asetek+...ox&FORM=IE8SRC

Look familiar? Socket 775 and AM2 compatible: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/76...ocket_AM2.html

BTW when you try to contact sales or customer service they re-direct you to Tech Support. There's also a link at the bottom of thier website that asks you what you think of Corsair, when you click on Power Supplies and then the drop down for model number, there is no HX 650.

I'd rather pay for this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...&condition=all
Or this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817194054

Than to be lied to about this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139012

And I'll put these in: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820226124 Just look at the timings on these.

I'll sell these for $200- free shipping: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145232

It's great to see I'm not the only one looking for alternatives: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ners-club.html

Anyone come across this problem before? Can anyone offer some advice? I feel like throwing something! :-(
I just fitted one of these in my scout this week, it will fit but it is tricky to get the 140mm fan to clip on. Check out my response to your post in the air cooling forum Basically you can't use your hand to pull the top 140mm clip back, you need to find a tool that will do the job. I imagine there are many creative ways to do it, I did it very very carefully with a long flathead screwdriver.

Based on the image and the Noctua site, I am assuming this system came with (1) P14 and (1) P12.

If that is the situation, 140mm fans for the CPU heatsink is large. But, since the P14 is round, and if this is the particular fan that is giving you problems, would it work if you changed from 1xP14 1xP12, to 2xP12 (square fan)?

P12
P14

As it has already been stated, removing the top fan would work. Also, if this product is still new, and you're willing to try a different product, there are a lot of CPU air coolers that are sized for using 120mm fans. Much smaller, and you shouldn't have the same problems.

Edit: Some suggestions...

For the cost of your Noctua cooling system, $90

You could try the CM V8, $60 after rebate.

Or even go water cooling with a Corsair H50, $80
10$ dollar rebate on the v8 not 60

GRATE post. if i hadn't gotten such a killer deal on my 950TX i would be in the market for a different one my self. as you know (cus i know you follow another thread of mine kinda) im trying to get away from my H50 too (real water oh yea ) and partly because they have started to turn their backs on what made them a grate company to begin with (incredible products with incredible support)

if any one is interested in the my H50 PM me and me might be able to make a deal

Anyway, I later met one of the other survivors, she lost her leg above the knee when she was 12. All her life she had been training to be a dancer, then she got Synovial Sarcoma. I also did herbal chemotherapy and prayer therapy (an actual "laying on of hands"). They can't quantify that scientifically though so they ignore it. Like I said before the biggest thing is, you've got to have a sense of humor.

My step dad's dad (Grandpa Jim) died before Christmas last year, metastasis related to Prostate Cancer. He was a very funny man most of his life but lost his sense of humor in those last years and that's when the cancer consumed him. He fought with it for 8 years, much longer than I would have ever put up with it. I'm glad they're constantly finding new stuff to treat it with. The general idea when I had it was to give you chemo and radiation and kill off most of the cells in your body and hope they grow back without the cancer in them. Targeted radiation, Interluken and other therapies have changed that a great deal.

Take your dad to a hilarious movie and have a laugh on me and know that somewhere in the world you're helping to kill off cancer. Mine's been gone what, 22 years now. Some little thing in my lungs showed up last year but I laughed it off and now they can't find a trace of it. Silly doctors!

the bolded part says it all. a supportive family and friends is also something that can make the difference too.

my dad and another guy (we didnt know him but dad and him had treatments at the same times on Tuesdays and Thursday. but he was always frowning and seamed to be pissed at the world. he was dead in 7 months when the docs told him he had 2 years with the experimental treatment (my dad is in the minority that went into remission with it for the most part it just slows down the cancer to get 4 or 5 extra months).
but my dad on the other hand always had a smile on his face and always tried to brighten up the attendants days if he could. for example on Christmas day 2 years ago my dad went in for a treatment in a Santa suit (he kinda looks like Santa i think i have a picture in my work log if you want to go looking) and started handing out dollar store joke gifts to every one that we passed (we spent like 300 bucks that day ) and when things were bad (it was touch and go for a little while because of some complications with a surgery he needed to get the rest of the tissue around the prostate out when the cancer appeared their too) he credits me and Jina (my gf) and my mom and his brother (also fighting cancer specifically Mesothelioma from working in construction for 40 years,hes not beating it but its not killing him either) for giving him the strength to keep fighting even when it hurt him to think. so i believe that family and laughter are as important as even the most effective treatments

and being Santa doesn't hurt either
