    Any ideas on how I could fit 6 more hard drives into my Fractal R4 case?

    LOL I was considering upgrading the case but if I could fit 3 HDDs into the 5.25" bays then (didn't realize there were these adapters, nice!), another 2 into the HDD cages, I could probably just zip-tie the last sucker somewhere and make it ghetto fabulous. Well okay, if I were to upgrade to...

    Any ideas on how I could fit 6 more hard drives into my Fractal R4 case?

    Hey guys. Looking to add another array of 6x8 TB into my NAS setup, bringing the total to 12. Unfortunately, I'm in a little jam. My HDD cages have room for 2 so far and perhaps I could fit two into the 5.25" drive bays but is there a better way to do this? Perhaps, fitting a HDD cage in...

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    I also was not impressed by LG 34UM95 after coming from a Dell U3011 monitor. I am a web developer and only use my monitor for productivity (no gaming). The monitor feels small and is too stretched horizontally to get a proper viewing angle. 2 monitors that are angled side by side is better for...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I am a little confused about some of the ACL extension features. What is the difference between ZFS/dataset ACL and SMB share ACL? Also, setting the ACL for individual users works great. How do I do it for groups? I don't see any option to add groups (only add local user). Does it apply to the...

    CPU Fan Weirdness--Could my PSU be too weak?

    CPU Fan Weirdness--Could my PSU be too weak?

    Alright, I have a brand new 430W PSU, an old GIGABYTE P35-DS3R Mobo with a Core 2 Duo E6750. Nothing else is plugged in other than the RAM and the PSU. If I connect JUST the ATX connector and not the 12V connector for the CPU, the CPU fan comes on. However, If I connect both the ATX connector...

    Triple 30" Dells 7680x1600 Got Wallpaper?

    http://interfacelift.com has a few multimonitor ones. You can also get UltraMon to specifiy each individual monitor's wallpaper. But in general, InterfaceLift has a lot of 2560x1600 ones. If you choose to create your own wallpaper from say... a picture you took, you will need at least a 43 MP...

    30" Monitor Arms

    Any recommendations for monitor arms that support 30 inchers that weigh ~20 lb (Dell U3011)? Preferably, ones that mount to the desk. I've been looking specifically on Monoprice and nothing seems to appeal to the 30 inchers... thanks

    Asus P8P67 Anybody 'NOT' Having Problems with this Board ?

    I have the P8P67 PRO and everything runs top notch. Love the EFI and having no problems whatsoever. The only nuisance I have experienced with this board is the cold double boot problem. OCing on this motherboard was also a breeze. Specs in signature

    2500k & P8p67 PRO Stuck @ 3.3 GHz

    No matter what I change in the EFI BIOS. I am stuck @ 3300 MHz at load. It seems like the CPU sets the multiplier to what I want but auto adjusts the bus speed (although I have it at manual). My settings are: BCLK/PEG: 100.00 (Manual) Turbo Ratio (By All Cores): 42 DRAM Freq: 1333...

    So who went to MC today to get their SB cpu.

    No, the MC store wasn't taking any reservations. Everyone I talked to at the store this morning also had no luck in reserving.

    So who went to MC today to get their SB cpu.

    They were only doing in-store sales I believe. No one could reserve it because it kept getting canceled (I also tried)

    So who went to MC today to get their SB cpu.

    Bummers, I would have been frustrated too. It definitely was very unorganized when everyone got in and there were multiple lines of people trying to get the CPU. The associate I was with actually went to get the processors and mobos rather than printing out the purchase sheet for us. This...
