    Need storage/backup solution for work.. Upgrade to Synology 1515+....?

    Funny you say that! I was just eyeing one of their units.. unfortunately, I think I'm going to just hit the easy button on this one. If we get another 7 years without failure, this thing will pay for itself a millionfold anyway.... haha.

    Need storage/backup solution for work.. Upgrade to Synology 1515+....?

    I am looking for a storage and backup solution for my small office, we have (6) desktops on location, and (1) offsite laptop. I have had a good run with Synology on our first unit (213j I think, still kicking), and I figured the 1515+ is a worthy solution. I can build, so I know it's a bit...

    Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 5U Tower Server, Intel Xeon E3, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD

    Hey, thanks for the input... I think I'm just going to stick to my original plan and go full blown build. That way I'm not stuck with anything but what I want... Otherwise I'm up the same creek in in right now lackluster OEM parts, just down the road... No thanks! But many thanks for the input!

    Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 5U Tower Server, Intel Xeon E3, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD

    Hmmph, I'm about to go drop ~$900 @ Microcenter for a new rig to run my triple Qnix, for WORK purposes only.. I'm wondering if this T140 might be my move instead..? Thoughts on that anyone? Here is what I was thinking, versus I guess this T140 now:PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by...

    Cheap Branded PCs still Proprietary?

    Quite honestly, I think a Dell is probably a good idea if you're scared of the upgrade situation. I say this as a business owner having gone through (3) servers, and about (10) desktops so far, all worked great. I've only had (1) server go down, and I figured that out, let alone their next day...

    Looking to build/buy work computer to run triple Qnix monitors

    Thanks for leaning in the direction I was in.. I just hate having all these really mediocre systems around... I'm the boss, so I can do as I please..but, I'm also a reasonable guy, sometimes. Anyway, I do really indeed just need a bill paying machine. I was actually looking at those the...

    Looking to build/buy work computer to run triple Qnix monitors

    Hey guys! Well, I can spec out a monster gaming build no problem, but it's this work computer that is bugging me. Here is what I have right now: Dell Optiplex 390, it's a mid tower, which means basically nothing to me because I still don't know wtf to do with it.... It has an i5-2500, 8 gb...

    should I go sr2 for quad fire...?

    Man, wish I could give daps on the forum..lol. Didn't know about the 3.0 update either... or maybe I did and forgot. Meanwhile, I just looked up and my CPU is still selling for $400 on ebay.. I swear I bought it for like $300 a year ago...? And, it's supposedly a high binned chip, too. I...

    should I go sr2 for quad fire...?

    Thank you SOO MUCH for laying it out like that.. That is exactly what I was having trouble trying to wrap my head around... whether or not I was indeed limiting the gpus... Perhaps I'll toy with the idea of has-e and see what kind of gains I would get per dollar.

    should I go sr2 for quad fire...?

    LOL @ 'chasing the dragon', what an amazing way of putting it... Yes, I certainly am on a bit of that kick. However, isn't my current rig bottlenecking significantly? Also, aren't I going to see some decent gains when I'm playing 4k? I would think so..? Frame rates?

    should I go sr2 for quad fire...?

    Hey guys, so I'm wondering if I should do a bit of an upgrade, or perhaps a reconfiguration. I'm running: 3930k RIVBE 16gb Dom gt Quad fire 290x 1600w cooler master (plan to replace/upgrade) Not sure if anything else matters.. But the whole rig is underwater, so I do have to...

    Looking for Tablet for Business Usage, Windows-based Business

    Busted, I'll accept my "F" on reading comprehension, and hang my head in shame. So, maybe the Surface Pro 3 after all, and deal with the wifi situation via my cell. As for vision plans, I don't even have one, it's my own company... ;c)

    Looking for Tablet for Business Usage, Windows-based Business

    Hahaha! Thanks for the input Kueller.. Sounds like the Surface Pro 3 might be the choice, but it doesn't even sound that good from what you mentioned. I have an Iphone, so the wifi thing is possible, $20/mo. But, that makes sense, because that would be cheaper than monthly service on the...

    Looking for Tablet for Business Usage, Windows-based Business

    So, it looks like I'm going to become some sort of a traveling salesman, great. Anyway, I am looking for a tablet I can use for the following: 3G service - to avoid the $1000/day wifi charges the tradeshow mafia thinks they're entitled to... Use to remotely gather leads at trade shows Keyboard...

    Need a few pointers on flushing blocks, etc.

    As for rad placement.. in that case the only concern now is... will it be counter productive to have (2) 360s blowing at each other with only about 5" between them? The Caselabs case is amazing. I bought mine used off Ebay (for a steal), and it's immaculate, without an issue on it. Came with...

    Need a few pointers on flushing blocks, etc.

    Here is what I was thinking... Correct me if I'm wrong. (2) rads in the pedestal - but facing each other? Wouldn't they affect each others airflow? (1) rad in PSU side - I bought that side bracket, not realizing I could probably put it facing down in the floor. Pump in the pedestal, between...

    Need a few pointers on flushing blocks, etc.

    It's more my being prude, and preoccupied I think than a real fear of cutting the tubing. I meant it as a metaphor, despite the fact that it is indeed true. I have 15', I'm sure I'll have enough. Before I explain the specs, I should justify a few things. I made a ton of cash right before...

    Need a few pointers on flushing blocks, etc.

    Thanks for the input guys! Yeah, the blocks definitely looked nice and shinny... Not that I'm even a fan of that, but I guess I did splurge a bit on the build... ;c) Definitely aware of the PSU jump maneuver on the leak test, but thank you for sharing. I'm honestly considering renters...

    First WC setup, I'd love some advice

    First off, set a budget. I did not, and I'm now $2k into water alone. But, I'm a putz, and like to spend money. I am going to recommend the Caselabs simply because I have an M8, and it's amazing. I already forsee this case lasting my lifetime, provided computers are still occupying...

    Need a few pointers on flushing blocks, etc.

    Thanks chief! I flushed all the rads last night. See, every little bit helps! I never got around to reading up on the guides yet though. Today maybe.

    Need a few pointers on flushing blocks, etc.

    Ok, so I'm finally getting around to my build here, and I'm knowingly in well over my head, I'll be the first to admit that. But, I'm an all or nothing kind of guy. So, I have assembled the water blocks on all cards/chips, etc. I probably should have flushed them before doing so, eh? I'd...

    Small/Medium Business Printer Solution.. Quality Color MFP Choices?

    Thanks for the responses guys! rhansen - There's only (5) of us here, and we're all environmentally conscious, so I'm confident that we wont have that issue. But I appreciate that, as it sounds like it totally sucks. Unfortunately, we're not like a typical business.. I inherited one of these...

    A lot of problems.

    Sounds like that thing needs a digital enema.. I'd say backup all your important stuff, and give that whole drive a wipe clean, maybe even replace the drive itself.

    Small/Medium Business Printer Solution.. Quality Color MFP Choices? So, a quick lay of the land here.. We're a medical supply company, with a warehouse here behind us. I am thinking of going to a larger, in house print solution. Versus using our small fleet of (3) Dell 1815dn's that are all...

    HELP! Numerous Empty Phone Calls Each Day On 800 Line...

    Well, none I guess would be the answer? It's basically VOIP, but it's marketed as 'Optimum Voice' via Cablevision... In terms of hardware - we have (2) cable modems that bring the phone lines in the place... We have (5) lines.. Line 1 and 2 are for "back of house" calls (to vendors, etc)...

    Console owners what TVs do you own?

    Ok, my old ass tv is better than ALL of yours!!! Samsung 68" DLP. It's probably 10 years old, but still one of the best pictures ever.. New TV's are weird, and the movements look unnatural.

    Most Players Don’t Finish Games

    The real scrypt ASICs are coming... KnCMiner is in the game now.

    Probably because they're basically running their own crowdfunding operation, and don't even know what they look like yet. The fact that they only take wire transfers, and bitcoins, coupled with the "read the terms and conditions carefully" part sounds really promising as well.

    25% Off Hotness! Audioengine A5+ Desktop Speaker @ $299

    So, the big question is... Should I stick with my Def Tech PC600 Home theater speakers that I am no longer using? Or go for the A5s? I placed an order with the massdrop, but apparently they never changed me due to some issues, so I still have access to the price. Taking that into consideration...
