    Cheap RAID controller with passthrough mode recommendations.

    I took off the stock heatsink and wiped off the stock TIM, cleaned everything up with a microfiber and rubbing alcohol, then applied some Kyronaut grizzly thermal paste on the chip and some thermal pads on the backplate behind the chip. Hope it helps. I haven't plugged it in yet.

    What is your backup GPU?

    Current GPU I'm running on is an Nvidia 2080Ti on an EK waterblock. Backup GPU is an Nvidia TITAN X (PASCAL) waterblocked with the 5M0 resistor solder shunt mod. Do not use liquid metal to perform shunt mods. I still can't believe people are still making videos on how to perform liquid metal...

    Cheap RAID controller with passthrough mode recommendations.

    Flashing the H200 is a little confusing, I think there are two firmware's with the same name (P19) and you have to make sure to verify the checksum that you are flashing your H200 to the correct P19 to use it in IT mode. The flashing process was straightforward, the information out there was...

    Cheap RAID controller with passthrough mode recommendations.

    I found a Dell Perc H200 from a decommissioned server a few years ago. Flashed to IT mode and used it in FreeNAS for a while. Then I upgraded to a Dell 330+. Its basically an HBA that's already preflashed to IT Mode. They did go up in price probably because of Chia, but since I got my last card...

    How many SSD drives have you purchased?

    Mid 2008: Bought three ES Intel X-25E SLC 64GB SSD's. I put them in RAID0. At the time, the multiplayer advantage was unreal. In Battlefield 2, I uncompressed the game files (they were actually compressed so a faster CPU also helped you load the game faster), but I also had a fast CPU with the...

    Why do AIOs never give any information about their cooling power?

    What also doesn't help is that Corsair released a hunk of garbage AIO that required you to install Windows based software to control the pump speed via USB. Corsair, STOP. Keep it simple, we don't need SOFTWARE to control our pump speeds. Whatever happened to a simple PWM connector? BTW this...

    Does pump speed matter?

    I got the Swiftech Dual MCP 355X2 pump and a Hardware labs Blackice Extreme Quad 140mm radiator and this combo is fuckin BEAST. Why two pumps? Because it's safer, you want some redundancy. Also the Dual MCP355X2 has two inlets, so I can fill a loop in a few minutes as the pump literally sucks...

    Sure the drive is far. But its all about the experience. You get to see all the motherboards, bread board kits, Raspberry Pi's and all the add-on parts, water cooled PC's on display, cheap drone toys, etc. It's a shitload more fun than going to Bestbuy :rolleyes: Plus if you need to build a PC...

    I reserved my order online, printed it out. I slacked off for 4 days cause the drive was 50 miles round trip. I didn't even know there was a barcode for a $10 off coupon. And they still honored it after it expired.

    Dude Microcenter was so awesome in NJ, I was in the store as they were closing, but they didn't rush me out. They also honored a $10 off coupon that expired yesterday and the manager did an over ride on the register to process it. So the drone was $6. Awesome staff.

    Alienware AW3418DW Ultrawide 34”, 120hz, IPS, arguably the best 34” G-Sync monitor - $800 at buydig.

    I bought this when it was on sale 3 months ago for $834. Fucking taxes ruined the price at $891, but I still bit the bullet. This monitor is still great for office work, you won't notice the curvature (at least I don't). Resolution of 3440x1440 is sharp enough for me. I know its only 120Hz max...

    Senate Wants Emergency Alerts to go Out Through Netflix, Spotify, etc.

    Senate Wants Emergency Alerts to go Out Through Netflix, Spotify, etc.

    IMO, the best way to implement emergency alerts for streamers is to use their zipcode. Streamers will get a popup prompting them for their zipcode. This prompt could come up during first power on/first usage of streaming service OR the zipcode could be set in the options menu later on. Also, you...

    Senate Wants Emergency Alerts to go Out Through Netflix, Spotify, etc.

    I agree, this proposal is asking for a fucking recording disaster. Guys, this is the last thing we need. It sounds good on paper, but in the real world there will probably be bugs that issue duplicate Amber alerts and Amber alert cancellations even when you opt out :rolleyes:
