    Best modern equivalent of these drives to upgrade my RAID?

    Get one of the Seagate IronWolf 3TB drives, I have 10 Seagate IronWolf 10TB drives in my RAID 6 array and they are working great.

    why would they build a floppy disk drive on a Borg Cube?

    Also I can't see a slot for the floppy in the case so unless the floppy disk is permamently in the drive it would be hard to swap it.

    Anyone else love their old case?

    My Lian-Li PC777 is still going strong.

    AMD EPYC “Genoa” (Zen4) to feature 96 cores across 12 chiplets, 12-channel DDR5 memory and SP5 (LGA6096 socket)

    More cores per chiplet means higher risk of defective chiplets. Increasing the number of chiplets per CPU is a smarter move.

    EPYC 72F3 vs 5800X

    The speed optimized EPYC's were introduced a couple of months after the 7002 series launch and priced accordingly.

    EPYC 72F3 vs 5800X

    Sure, for $2500 ;) That is a server part optimised for expensive per core licensed software. Same with the 16 core version for $3500. Leaked pricing here: https://wccftech.com/amd-epyc-3-next-generation-milan-series-cpu-specifications-and-pricing-leaked-before-launch/

    I am abandoning this project

    For some reason I never got around to do a Star Wars themed case. An AT-ST would be a great desk side computer if anyone is up to the challenge.

    Australian invention will see 'transformational' scaling up of quantum computers, experts say

    It's one step closer to the one million qubits required to make a useful quantum computer I guess.

    (WTF Amazon?) Would you use these or return them?

    It takes a lot to kill a copper SFP, I wouldn't be the slightest worried.

    WoW Themed Fractal Design case

    That is a nice old skool mod.

    Anyone done a full body mannequin case mod?

    Well there is this one made 16 years ago: https://www.mini-itx.com/projects/ern005pc/

    Cerebras’ wafer-size chip is 10,000 times faster than a GPU

    Indeed, the article in the OP is for the model 1-2 years ago. It is quite interesting that the biggest issues building these wafer sized chips wasn't to make the chips themselfs but how to supply power and cooling.

    AMD Threadripper 3970X Successor

    I have seen some speculation that CES 2021 might be when they are announced.

    Smallest case with a 5.25” bay?

    True but if you are going to stuff 16 2.5" drives in a case today they are most likely SSD's and those are 7mm most of the time.
