    I need a SAS Expander card but what about the specs? x16 versus x8 and 12Gb/s versus 6Gb/s...

    Wow! Thank you so much, guys. That's a lot of resources and info. I appreciate it. Some forums truly suck! And then some, truly come through... I will work on the info and do some related research. Meantime, anything that runs about $100/TB will be too painful to achieve at the moment. I need...

    I need a SAS Expander card but what about the specs? x16 versus x8 and 12Gb/s versus 6Gb/s...

    I have one 10TB drive, 6x 8TB drives, 4x 6TB drives, and 2x SSDs. I might later consider one backup-related RAID for the system SSD. I am also hoping in the near future that I would populate more SSDs and some 16Gb/s SAS drives in my system. And maybe some M.2 devices... But while we are at...

    I need a SAS Expander card but what about the specs? x16 versus x8 and 12Gb/s versus 6Gb/s...

    Hi, I found myself in need of a SAS expander card to accommodate my Z590 series motherboard that I am running an audio workstation with. Which only comes with 6 HDD Bays. I am not going to RAID. I need 6 ports. So they are gonna be 12 total with my MOBO. They should support at least 8 TB...

    I believe I did reset CMOS prior to upgrading to the latest BIOS. But I'll check it, for sure. I am on a different PC at the moment.

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Hi, I have not experienced the errors so far, after reducing my HDMI cables with an extension plug to a single one. But, I have received a response from Asus service that claiming I would not get those errors due to an HDMI cable error. As disappointing as this sounds, I have one single hope...

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Probably but it did work once in a while. But do you know if the errors would happen with bad cable?

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Hi, yes I meant iGPU... I was using an HDMI extension thingy and when I removed it and connected with a single cable I was able to boot. But my main concern is to know if the cable is bad would I get the errors? The whole shabang: Beeps and the white light but since the POST is completed no Q...

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Rog Maximus XIII HERO It's a simple but very crucial question for me. This has been happening for a while now! I had bend CPU pins, thus I got the VGA error. (One long three short beeps and white light) I had the motherboard RMA'ed, fixed. And occasionally I am still getting the same errors...

    A Devilish Problem With Maximus Xiii Hero And I9-11900k Q Code D4 And Its Reincarnation

    Also, all my parts are compatible. I did my research! Matter of fact, both Asus and Corsair gave me their blessings personally. Asus put some 128 GB Corsair rams that higher than 2333 MHz into their compatibility list after my request. The video card is also listed as a compatible device. I...

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    You mean upgrade the rear exhaust fan or the front fan or both? (both are stock fans) And the side panel fan I mentioned should be intake right? Remember though, I have 2x120mm intake artic fans also on the side and they blow directly onto the bottom HDDs.

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    No, the stock fan I mentioned is the case exhaust fan on the rear. (Cooler Master) The artic 120mm one is the one I added... No room at the bottom I do have room for 2 x 120mm fans on the side panel. but they are not aligned with the top HDDs...
