    DAN C4-SFX: The smallest water cooling case in the world

    I'm thinking riing fans atop 30mm rad, with the side panels clearanced around the fan "barrels", and the top fan flanges removed, would be a badass looking mod

    DAN C4-SFX: The smallest water cooling case in the world

    Dan - great to see you continuing to optimize your ideas and support the mITX community! I had good luck with 4.3GHz air cooled CPU + dual GPU in a Shuttle, back in the day, and the power supply fan helped get heat out of the case. Power supplies can typically survive warm air intake, though...

    Intel Core i7-8700K Benchmarks Leaked

    FWIW, I'm basically running my i7-980 as if it were an X5650 - hot bclk and low multiplier for better IO and 4.0GHz all-cores. CFL at stock is trying really hard to maintain Kabby single core performance within a thermal envelope, but also deliver better multi vs Kabby (eg. 6 * 80% clock > 4 *...

    Citi, Oxford: 80% of Retail Jobs at Risk from Automation

    All the new economics is deflationary. Automation/efficiency engineers the cost out of both supply chain and production. Then competition at lower cost drives down price. Factory owners take a cut from price, but price is shrinking. Probably the only thing holding back faster adoption of...

    Philips Demos 328P8K 8K UHD Monitor

    Yeah, in theory, given the bandwidth to do 8k @ 60Hz, should be no problem pushing variable 4k up to 240Hz on the same interface by shoving more packets. Not that a TV would know what to do with that. But it at least suggests 4k VRR will become the new normal, as well as movies at "real 24Hz" on...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    I'm lazy too - as evidence by the dust ...but that side panel is a hinged door, so easy picture FWIW, probably makes sense to stick the foam to the inside of the dan side panel, so just part of the foam hits the frame of a fan / GPU shroud, and the rest of the foam rolls over the edge of the...

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    I haven't seen the LGA2066 Application Guide floating around the web yet, so I can't just sort and diff the pin names.That said, I think: * mostly power and ground * less a few to cover the fact that some of the repackaged chips have onboard secondary voltages, while others need those from the...

    Why 802.11ax Is the Next Big Thing in Wi-Fi

    $100 per port + some free 1gig ports. I'll pass, but that's a great price. I'd definitely ask about compatibility for transceivers though - that's definitely an area that can be a pain. Specifically, if SFP+ DAC / SFP+ cable style are supported, which brands [those tend to be even less expensive...

    Why 802.11ax Is the Next Big Thing in Wi-Fi

    I've been doing tech a while, including being at Cisco back in 2002 when they and other vendors had pre-standard 100GbE and no market for it, and I'd counter that wifi is good enough a lot of the time (usually "just works"). I mean, of course wired is what you use for servers, or between your...

    Record Sized Data Center Planned Inside Arctic Circle

    Using hydro to run computers creates no net difference in heat - the water gives up 1000MW of potential energy when it gives up height, either in a turbine or along a river. Hydro also releases no carbon. Because science. Or do I just not realize everyone is trolling/joking? B/C if you want...

    New Ultrathin Semiconductor Materials Found That Outdo Silicon

    Wow, OK. After reading a bit, these guys are pretty far down the path of checking fabrication techniques - either due to expedience for the sake of their own work, or possibly with an eye toward commercialization. The wafers need to be made in high vacuum, but once passivated many of the...

    Is Intel's X299 Platform Better than the X99? @ [H]

    Great analysis Dan_D - really ties a lot together I'm looking at X299 as bringing HEDT to parity with Consumer line, rather than leaping past the Consumer stuff (as we had come to expect in X58 and X79 days). I mean, if I actually utilize 6+ CPU cores or GPUs more than 40% of the hours in a...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Gotta agree w/Chapeau - cross-flow in place of the PSU is about the only place with room for a rad, unless you want it external. FWIW, a 2x92mm rad has 17.5% more frontal area than a 1x120mm. You may even have room to throw one of these in the case: Edit: Dual 92mm rads I can find are 229mm...
