    I have a friend who has a wonky home server. All he has is 2 desktop systems accessing a Quickbooks database, so there is no need for a big server. What I would like to do is get him off of his wonky server and into a simple NAS box. The problem is there are so many to choose from! I was...

    Xeon Coolers?

    OK. I work at a 3D Studio and we all work on Dual Xeon rigs. I built them all myself in CoolerMaster Wave cases. They have rather sucky air flow but I did not buy them... Anyways, we have 2 dual 3.06 systems and the fans Intel use are heat sensitive. BOTH of them start SCREAMING like...
