That cooler is one of the reasons why I did not press my 480 radiator into service until I got an i7 4770k. :P
I could never really justify watercooling my 9950 @ 3GHz even though everyone was laughing at my 125w TDP. It just did so well temp-wise.  :D

That cooler is the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 which I used on a Phenom X4 9950 Black & Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H for a few years. (some of the stuff I dumped on you) That was a really awesome budget cooler, and with IC Diamond I did not have to constantly remount it! I think it was atop a Phenom II X4 955 with possibly Antec Formula 7 or AC MX2 when you met it.
The fans... I forget exactly. I got them through NCIX and there was some sort of hype about NCIX getting red ones because red was apparently not the normal colour. Someone else might remember more.
Also: mechanics wire, not paperclips. ;)

Either way, glad to see the cooler still in service. :D

Google says the fans are Yate Loon. That sounds familiar.

How is that 2001 not dead yet? Those 99-01 transmissions were notorious for one issue that was never fixed.

Supa, a little banged up but that truck should hold up fine. Keep the door latches lubed and be nice to em though. :P

Came back from GP today with a 2012 Mustang GT!
74k KMs, 3yr/60,000 warranty
NA 5.0L V8, 412HP, 390ftlbs. 6-speed manual.
I need to double check some things but it looks like it has the brembo brakes package and driving it is beautiful regardless of speed.
Unfortunately some dick decided that it needed flowmasters and a "cold air"(but not actually) intake. As far as I can tell so far the only issues with this car are that at around 2k RPM on the highway it has a brutal drone, and the paint has issues on the front, hood, rims, and rear badge.
Aside from that it is all pure sex.

I never thought I might want a modern car, but this one is nice. For a modern car the interior looks good too!

Do not quote me on this, but apparently the top speed of these cars when stock is a bit over 240KM/h. Neat!

How about a gain 10 lbs video?
Once per week for the rest of the year make a cake and draw DOOM related things on the top of each one. Different image for each cake.

your username -> no soul -> must be demon -> DOOM! -> DOOM is awesome -> needs moar DOOM -> demon gains weight with DOOM cakes?

Two things:
1. An oscilloscope that promptly received firmware to turn it into the next model up.

2. A car!
I have not run the VIN yet but IMO it looks like a 1974 Newport. What I wanted specifically is under the hood, a rotating 400ci MOPAR big-block to be rebuilt for my 91 Dodge W150.

there's no where to mount fans anyways :P
That does not sound like a modder talking.
Make that case yours!

IDK about that specific case, but in the past dell's 1x4 pin header fans were regular PWM with a different connector. You should be able to crimp a new connector to the fan, make an adapter cable for regular fans, or just cut and splice the ends.
perhaps you can talk someone with crimping tools into helping you?

Actually two too many.

12 valve and an NV5600 :P
Currently have 318 with NP435 trans(granny low!) and NP241 tcase.
As nice as torque would be, the truck is already 5000lbs and heavy enough without a diesel.

Was the gap too wide to straddle (wheels either side)? Hard to tell in the picture.
The gap where the F350 went in was too wide to straddle. In my case there was a spotter but my NP435's granny-first & and 4-low while riding the brakes was "too fast" and there was a bit of communication breakdown that resulted in me over-correcting. I ended up too close then slid in when I tried to back away. We did not have a good communications system in place. Needs more analog.

I will take most of the blame for sliding in. I firmly believe that if I was paying attention to the obstacle instead of a spotter I could have positioned my truck better.
I am not mad at the spotter, I am annoyed with myself for not doing it myself. I know my truck best, it is part of me.

Here, have a video:

Anyway, time for other stories!

So I was offroading with this guy. His 1-ton Ford (F350, 7.3 IDI) is quite heavy and slides around with little provocation. The ground is also both a lot slicker and a lot looser than it looks, just sayin.

More sliding when I take my 1/2-ton Dodge (W150, 318LA) around the other side to pull him out....

Fortunately my Dodge was able to drive right out with two people in the corner of the box! I was then able to drag the Ford to safe ground, and lived to wheel another day!
