    It moves vast amounts of air, at the expense of money and eardrums.

    When I was building the folding rigs I considered silly fans, but ended up with a mix of 120 & 140mm Noctua industrial fans. 160CFM is not to be sneezed at, but the Nidec can push 260!

    The airflow number is mighty impressive, but this fan's claim to fame is actually its static pressure - it has the highest static pressure of all 12v 120mm x 38mm fans and is only beaten by fans which are deeper (counter-rotating fans) or fans that have higher operating voltage (24V, 48V).

    It's kinda hard to picture just how insane the static pressure is, but if you look at a familiar fan known for its class-leading static pressure, you get the picture...

    Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm: 20 Pa
    Nidec G1238B 6300rpm: 520 Pa

    And here's where that glorious static pressure comes from:

    Bolt your house down, mate. It might just lift off otherwise.

    As I get older I'm finding the willingness to endure hangovers changes.

    The willingness is going down at a much faster rate than I expected. At this rate I'll have given up drinking by 2021.

    Yeah when hangovers last a couple of days it hardly seems worth it

    I don't even tolerate the 'feeling a bit weird' the next morning anymore. It's just annoying so I drink less so it doesn't happen.

    I mean I hardly drink now but there was never any pattern to my hangovers.

    I could have had one beer and have a cracking hangover, other nights have a few and nothing.

    That's unfortunate! Fortunately mine are somewhat predictable based on timing and amount of consumption, so I dabble still. I don't think I'll be replacing my scotch when I've drunk my way through it though. It's far too easy to whoops too much of that and feel like hammered **** for the next few days.

    Never had a hang over really, no matter how drunk I was the night before.

    I would wake up, have a brew or a litre of pure orange juice and I was fine, not enough to go and drive because that would be silly but fine enough to not have a head ache or feel sick or anything.

    I have not had a drink for ages, and I have no real interest in starting to drink or even just having a couple of beers after a really stressful day at work.

    Trying to be neutral in a world full of apparent hardliners (not the water cooling type :mad: ); agendas are for the arena they're written for, not to be used as a life philosophy.

    ... but then my relative sanity may currently be questionable, so why should anyone else give a f***...?
