    I need a SAS Expander card but what about the specs? x16 versus x8 and 12Gb/s versus 6Gb/s...

    Wow! Thank you so much, guys. That's a lot of resources and info. I appreciate it. Some forums truly suck! And then some, truly come through... I will work on the info and do some related research. Meantime, anything that runs about $100/TB will be too painful to achieve at the moment. I need...

    I need a SAS Expander card but what about the specs? x16 versus x8 and 12Gb/s versus 6Gb/s...

    I have one 10TB drive, 6x 8TB drives, 4x 6TB drives, and 2x SSDs. I might later consider one backup-related RAID for the system SSD. I am also hoping in the near future that I would populate more SSDs and some 16Gb/s SAS drives in my system. And maybe some M.2 devices... But while we are at...

    I need a SAS Expander card but what about the specs? x16 versus x8 and 12Gb/s versus 6Gb/s...

    Hi, I found myself in need of a SAS expander card to accommodate my Z590 series motherboard that I am running an audio workstation with. Which only comes with 6 HDD Bays. I am not going to RAID. I need 6 ports. So they are gonna be 12 total with my MOBO. They should support at least 8 TB...

    I believe I did reset CMOS prior to upgrading to the latest BIOS. But I'll check it, for sure. I am on a different PC at the moment.

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Hi, I have not experienced the errors so far, after reducing my HDMI cables with an extension plug to a single one. But, I have received a response from Asus service that claiming I would not get those errors due to an HDMI cable error. As disappointing as this sounds, I have one single hope...

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Hi, yes I meant iGPU... I was using an HDMI extension thingy and when I removed it and connected with a single cable I was able to boot. But my main concern is to know if the cable is bad would I get the errors? The whole shabang: Beeps and the white light but since the POST is completed no Q...

    Would I get the VGA error if the HDMI cable is bad? ASUS Motherboard

    Rog Maximus XIII HERO It's a simple but very crucial question for me. This has been happening for a while now! I had bend CPU pins, thus I got the VGA error. (One long three short beeps and white light) I had the motherboard RMA'ed, fixed. And occasionally I am still getting the same errors...

    A Devilish Problem With Maximus Xiii Hero And I9-11900k Q Code D4 And Its Reincarnation

    Also, all my parts are compatible. I did my research! Matter of fact, both Asus and Corsair gave me their blessings personally. Asus put some 128 GB Corsair rams that higher than 2333 MHz into their compatibility list after my request. The video card is also listed as a compatible device. I...

    Hello, I rebuilt my workstation from 10 years old P9X79 WS to a couple of months old ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO coupled with an 'Intel i9-11900K', 'Corsair VENGEANCE® LPX 128GB (4 x 32GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 ' and an 'Asus GTX 1660Ti...

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    You mean upgrade the rear exhaust fan or the front fan or both? (both are stock fans) And the side panel fan I mentioned should be intake right? Remember though, I have 2x120mm intake artic fans also on the side and they blow directly onto the bottom HDDs.

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    No, the stock fan I mentioned is the case exhaust fan on the rear. (Cooler Master) The artic 120mm one is the one I added... No room at the bottom I do have room for 2 x 120mm fans on the side panel. but they are not aligned with the top HDDs...

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    Got it. So, by the way, is there any better way to somehow manage the heat of those HDDs? Because they get over 50 celsius with that front stock fan alone.

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    But do you think would that contribute to the cooling of the HDDs? Because they get hot. I have 5 drives in that cage.

    How to configure the Mid HDD fan inside the case?

    Hello, I have a Cooler Master Cosmos II case. I am not sure how to configure the mid HDD fan. Should I blow towards the HDDs or the opposite? Ideally, I want to cool down the HDDs, but I am worried to blow hot air from the case. I do have three outtakes: 2 x 120 mm fans on the top and a...

    Asus Rog Maximus XIII Hero No Room for a "PCIEX" card

    What I've heard is that; nonconductive fluid in time will become conductive due to collecting ions and then being charged by ions... And the fact that you never had a problem with LQ might lay on your habit of replacing them like oil... ;)

    Asus Rog Maximus XIII Hero No Room for a "PCIEX" card

    I won't put any water block for possible shower on my mobo... It is not a matter of "if", it is a matter of "when"... @ toast0 I realized the riser is not what l thought but it is a delightful twist. Especially if I can find a USB3.2 version it would be super...

    Frozen Screen! A non Windows related, long term problem...

    I had a very strong feeling about the motherboard and went to the other way. (GPU). But now I am told that CPU could also not be excluded from the usual suspects' list as I initially was told otherwise by a technician. But I feel like the motherboard got really tired and those Q-codes are too...

    Thank you, I knew I'd left out some things... My temperature control is very unorthodox yet very powerful. I have very low temperatures in my case it is a huge case. and I have 10 HDDs in the case so I care about the airflow and the heat. My CPU's thermal paste has been renewed. I have a...

    Infamous Driver IRQL not less or equal crash

    So when I first discovered this, it was when I put my system together, I realized crashes came every two hours! I mean like a clock..
