    Poor Man's vmotion like setup?

    I'm waiting for 3.0 to get released so I can test LIO-target, but lopoetve is right. Default iSCSI initiator for OF 2.99 and below is SCST, which doesn't have SCSI-3 persistent reservations. Now you can CLI configure OF to use LIO-target, but it's a PITA. For now, I've succumbed to just...

    Acer Iconia tablet Best Buy $243 w/tax + $10 gift card

    SOLD OUT. Got it for my GF. I'm really surprised that more peeps weren't more interested in this on [H] (unless you already saw the deal on SD or Bens Bargains).

    New SFF gamers case: presentation and advices

    Mind telling us how much? I was going to sell my case to an old customer for his gaming rig, but I didn't want to sell it without getting a replacement or properly pricing it.

    Early OCZ Synapse impressions

    Thanks for the review. I take it that when you install the Dataplex software it's only good for use on one PC? What's the maximum cache size you can provision? Can you cache muliple drives? I know I could Google, but I'm feeling extra lazy.

    3rd Party SSD Caching software

    I don't think Readyboost is as advanced as SSD cacheing impementations. Readyboost can only use USB, not SATA\SAS attached storage for cacheing as far as I know.

    Heatsink needed on power MOSFETS/VRM/circuitry?

    MSI........................ In all fairness, I doubt you'll have problems, especially since it's an Intel-based board, but I'm keeping away from MSI for awhile.

    Corsair Giveaway - Force Series™ GT 180GB Solid-State Hard Drive

    I already bought a Corsair Force 3 60GB and would like to get one for my GF, who just had surgery and she would feel a whole lot better if she had an SSD. (this is actually a true story) :D

    Installing patch panel and cable length

    Always leave them longer. You can alway cut can't add unless you splice/extend, which is a bad idea. My 2nd house, I was lucky enough to be able to install conduit which made it a moot point. Didn't have that luxury on my current house so I left plenty of extra.

    Heat limited I7 2600K with a Noctua NH-D14?

    I'm running a Cogage Arrow, which is no slouch, and I'm seeing the same temps...........4.8 Ghz wth HT at 1.35V and I'm hitting 80C with LinX. My HS/Motherboard sits parallel to desktop, so I doubt contact is an issue in my setup.

    Any other decent mATX board besides the Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z?

    See my sig for my OC on my Gene. When I get a hair up my butt, I'll raise the voltage and see if I can hit 5 Ghz (at 1.35v for now).

    Help me find a shoe-box style case with specific specs

    You really should get a bag to carry your case. I tried the Gear Grip handle thingy and carrying it that way beats your rig up pretty quickly. I actually had mine break in the was not fun. While a solid-mounted handle may not break, you're still going to beat your rig...

    MicroCenter i7-2600K+Z68 Savings Power Event

    I picked up 2 2600K's and a Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 and a Gigbyte Z68MX-UD2H-B3 for $695 after taxes. I priced on Newegg and I saved about $200. Both boards were 80 bucks off, so one board came to $35 and the other $60. Gonna swap one of the 2600K's into my Maximus and see if I can hit the...

    Looking for a work pc build

    This rig doubles as a work rig when needed. New components are in my sig..........SSD caching has been working good for me despite the problems others have had. I have to run multiple VM environments at one time.

    OpenFiler vs. FreeNas

    I'm sure this has been beaten to death in this forum but I'm looking for some updated information. Quite a few posts around the net say: "Openfiler hasn't been updated in years..." This isn't true. 2.99 has been out for some time now. 3.0 Is pending release "Openfiler is faster than...

    ATX vs mATX - still important?

    My Maximus IV Gene has 6 internal SATA ports, 2 SATA-3, 4 SATA-2, and two additional eSATA ports for a total of 8 SATA ports. I don't use eSATA.............I use an external USB 3.0 HD docking station......much easier to add/remove drives on USB than it is eSATA and speed is comparable. It...

    G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 C9 $34.99

    So I've got 16 gigs in my rig........just bought the GSkill deal a few weeks ago and got 24 gigs for $134 and thought that was a damn steal, and now just bought 3 sets of these. It was really, really tempting to not jump on 5 sets. At least I'm one step closer to having a 2-node HA/FT...
