    WTB: Z390 Board

    I have a friend gifting me an i5-9600k as an upgrade from my aging i7-4770. So I am in search of a decent but not super expensive Z390 board for it. I don't know if I'll bring my hardware RAID card over for scratch drive use or not, but I'd like the option if I can. Please save me from the...

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    I know that my expander liked to drop random drives, so I stopped using it.

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    I picked one up because my mismatched drives don't give great performance anyway. Plus with the way unRAID works I am fine with it.

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    I have one waiting to drop into my unRAID box, once I get a new case that is. However, I will be dual linking it to my cross flashed Dell Perc H310 (LSI 9211-8i)

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    My other option is to try to flash it with a Dell PERC H310 converted to an IT Mode LSI-9211-8i. I think the P410 will work better.

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    Not sure if it's posted, but Firmware 2.10(C) is out. I actually just ordered one for my unRAID box and thankfully I have a P410 to use to flash it.

    IT Resume Thread

    I have decided to start looking for a new position as the promised split of my dual role position into two positions will more than likely not happen in the near (< 10 yrs) future. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dcB8q09ZVyJ547Rx9DqK-GXwmtzB9Wo5T7jW5lTLya0/edit?usp=sharing

    ASUS Changes Warranty Exclusions in USA

    When I had my phone screen replaced they said if they saw an aftermarket screen or any indication I had been in the phone my warranty was null and void.

    ASUS Changes Warranty Exclusions in USA

    John Deer views the computer code as proprietary (which I'd agree with) but make it so the only people that can get the required diagnostic tools to allow replacement parts are their service centers.

    Decent inexpensive dual band PCIe 802.11AC adapter

    I hope so. I’ll use it for the same thing unless I get mad enough to run a CAT5e a way I don’t really want to

    Decent inexpensive dual band PCIe 802.11AC adapter

    I'll probably go with the GIgabyte one, since it works with Linux as well.

    Decent inexpensive dual band PCIe 802.11AC adapter

    I'm looking for a dual band PCIe 802.11AC adapter that won't break the bank. I had purchased an Edimax EW-7822UAC and they seem to be hit or miss as to if they will work or not. Mine didn't and I'd rather have internal anyway.

    Decent inexpensive 5.1 system

    Unfortunately for me, my wife shot me down before I could actually finish the sentence. Mostly because the kids room is right under the living room I'm guessing. I "might" be able to talk her into a stereo sound bar so we have better quality sound but that is it :(

    Not Enough GPUs for Gamers - Maingear Helps Make Sure

    A big issue is some of the newer coins use the CyrptoNight algorithm which is currently cost prohibitive to design an ASIC to mine for. The plan was to make sure any coin using that algorithm can never be mined on an ASIC and so far its working. But if I were to buy that system I could care...

    Decent inexpensive 5.1 system

    Although it will mostly be relegated to use with my Roku & Blu-Ray players I will have a Raspberry Pi 3 running RetroPIE hooked up so I figure it fits here. I am looking for an inexpensive but decent 5.1 surround system for my house. Currently we have an old Sony 5 disc DVD 5.1 system we got...

    HP Is Blocking Third-Party Printer Inks Again via Firmware Update

    RIP, Windows Phone

    Having used Windows Mobile 7, a lack of apps was the major issue I had with it. I use Google Voice and not having an official Google Voice app killed it for me, as did Google not allow EAS support on accounts after a certain date (01/30/2013).

    Keep Your Damn Pokeman GO Playing Eyes On The Road!

    You would think so, but I play on the train a lot and as long as you get it into the capture mode fast enough you're fine. And incense also makes it so that as long as you can see the Pokemon you can try to capture it.

    Your home ESX server lab hardware specs?

    I meant I can't upload ISOs to use to install VMs. However I figured it out. I had redone my router config and forgot to set primary DNS to my home lab domain controller, once I did that everything works great (at least on wired, don't care a lot about WiFi right now).

    Hardware needed for home lab?

    I guess the 3550 can be used, but isn't the best choice. Doing more research I'm leaning towards the Premium CCNP kit from CertificationKits. WIll cost a lot more, but I know it will do everything I need. http://shop.certificationkits.com/ccna-premium-ccnp-kit/

    Edge Router Lite vs Edge Router X

    I have a ER-X, for my needs it is great (for now). I power it using POE on eth0, and passthru POE on eth4 to my UAP. When It comes to needing something better I will probably go with the EdgeRouter Pro, EdgeSwitch, and UniFi AP AC Pros. But for most home connections, a ER-X is fine. Up until...

    white label drives?

    They will also cross ship a replacement for a drive with a DONTSHIP firmware. All in all, I have had better luck with white label drives than I have with name brand drives.
