    Hosting Servers behind CG-NAT (port forwarding through WireGuard tunnel)

    I have recently switched to T-Mobile Home Internet, and speeds have been great. I have been getting between 150 and 300 Mbps download, and 50-100 Mbps upload most of the time. However, I host a few services from home and need to be able to expose them to the outside Internet. I purchased a...

    Remembering deals of yesteryear

    Sometimes I like to look at my eBay purchase history and wonder how we have strayed so far from reasonable GPU prices. Anybody else? And no, I don't own any of these cards any more. Most of these went into builds that ended up with friends or family.

    LGA 2011 Narrow ILM CPU Bracket

    I recently purchased a SuperMicro X9DRi-F from another [H] member and it uses the wonderful LGA 2011 Narrow ILM socket.

    H50 Does Not Fit LGA 2011 ASUS P9X79
