    2.5 inch HDD NAS drives

    I have a Synology 4 bay full of 3.5" Reds sitting on a shelf about 4 feet from me. There is nothing noisy about them at all. Either step up to 3.5" for capacity or do like several others have suggested and migrate to SSDs.

    Microsoft cancels "new" console

    Microsoft already has a huge installed user base for this. Their existing consoles already offer the option to stream games directly without an install. This isn’t nearly the leap for them that it was for Google.

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    This is how I see it as well. These aren't regulated industrial tools intended to be used by only skilled/trained/certified professionals. These are consumer targeted entertainment devices. They quite literally need to be idiot proof. There is no expectation of end user competency here.

    How do graphics adapters order multiple displays??

    We are listening to this. You are just ignoring the answer. The GPU doesn't do this, the OS does.

    Please. Some mod put OP and this thread out of its misery already.

    This is all anyone should need to hear. Equipment that has fallen out of mainstream enterprise support is scrap and not much else.

    Supermicro SC825TQ-700LPB Chassis with X9DAI Motherboard+complete build

    The irony is the hot swap chassis and power supplies are probably the only things worth any real money. If you were local to me I'd probably give you a few bucks for them. Those super micro cases make great foundations for a NAS.

    Question about Synology Active Backup

    100TB? Damn. That's almost every Hallmark Christmas movie. Almost. I'd update the RAM regardless. 2GB is just too low for a device that can do so many things. The slot is easy to get to and everyone has a spare DDR4 sodimm sitting in a drawer rotting somewhere. Even just a 4GB stick would...

    Question about Synology Active Backup

    I believe that 220+ has a celeron with a quick sync GPU in it. If you have a Plex pass then you can hardware transcode and replace your Plex server. I moved mine to a 920+ 2 years ago. I can tinker with my “real” machines without affecting Plex. Much more wife and kids friendly. Great little...

    Question about Synology Active Backup

    It's just the changes. How many versions you save is configurable when you setup the backup job. I think dedup is limited to synology SSDs.

    Gaming in your 40s

    43 here. I have an XBOX One X and a PC with a 10900 and a 3090ti. Both attached to the 70" 4K screen in my office. I play The Division 2 and Minecraft. On the XBOX. For about 2 hours total on the weekends. I watch an embarrassing amount of YouTube instead.

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    When you get outside of the starter galaxies onto planets that have the more rare resources it does get more challenging but yeah, I wouldn't call this a "high risk" type of game by any stretch. It's pretty chill.

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    It's definitely a "choose your own story" type of game. The main quest line (if you can even call it that) is pretty meh. It's the freedom to do whatever you want that is the appeal, or the turn off depending on what you are looking for.

    Wow. How is this game still producing all of these updates. Are that many people still buying new copies?

    Raid card for NAS.

    Pretty obvious that OP doesn't really know what he is asking for. RAID5 for a Plex server as a secondary function of a windows box is just dumb. RAID5 is just dumb. EDIT: I sound like more of a jerk than normal here. Your post is technically correct and your information helpful.

    Raid card for NAS.

    I would second this if you need additional ports. Pre-flashed LSI cards can be had for under $50 all day long. They make excellent HBAs.

    Raid card for NAS.

    Then just install Plex server and add storage. Once you get it up and running and realize it's a PITA to keep your main power hungry PC running 24/7 just revisit this post to continue your dedicated NAS journey.

    Um. Ok. OP already said he was building a NAS. Run a NAS OS.

    EDIT: I'm a dumbass. You specifically stated "Without a Mac" Can definitely do it on a Mac. I don't have a windows box nearby to check.

    Sniper Elite 5

    I've put a few hours in. Other than playing 4 for about 20 minutes on the xbox after seeing a youtube early preview for 5, I'm new to the series. Climbing is kinda of annoying but you really don't do it all that much and it's not like it's hard, just a bit cheesy. Game is definitely buggy...

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    Agreed. Only place you can fit the zip drive. Or the 8 track player.

    External monitor.

    I did not read the whole thread admittedly but you don't need a "thunderbolt" monitor if you're just wanting an external display. Just buy a usb-c to HDMI or whatever you need and pretty much any monitor will work fine. I believe you may be overthinking this...

    How do you calculate how much of a difference dual channel makes over single channel?

    The short answer is it doubles your effective memory bandwidth. Double is your answer. That's how much of a difference dual channel makes over single channel. The long and much more relevant answer is it depends on what task you are looking for an improvement in and how much that memory...
