    FS: 3 Bioshock Infinite/Crysis 3 download codes

    Annoyed with WHS, new fileserver time

    After trying to remove it with the drive unplugged, plugged in, hot plugged it a few times, and about 100 reboots, I performed a registry edit to remove it. I then re-added the registry keys to make it re-appear in the console and was finally able to remove it. I know what I did wasn't the...

    yes, everything was duplicated all the files i'm manually restoring are visible on other drives, but WHS refuses to re-duplicate the files even though they're there basically the only function that i would want it to perform (keep my data accessible to me in the event of a drive failure)...

    Annoyed with WHS, new fileserver time

    I'm thinking that once I get the new solution up and running that I'll build a backup server with the 3 1.5TBs, then perform the first backup over the local network and move it to my GF's place...I can establish a VPN tunnel between the two in order to back up incremental changes.

    These were all several years ago when I was getting my start in IT...my ghetto modding days are mostly over now...these days it's more efficient to just buy something to accomplish the task at hand rather than spending my precious free time constructing something. It was fun building all...

    The ghetto SCSI box Old Compaq case, mostly gutted...two PSUs wired together to power all the drives...one is duct taped to the top of the case, although it's difficult to see in this pic. Drives duct taped and stacked pretty much wherever I can fit them. I built this when I wanted to learn...

    5 in 3 drive cage?

    A while ago I found a cage with no backplane or hot-swap capabilities that would fit 5 3.5" drives into 3 5.25" slots...I guess I didn't save the link, and now I can't find it...it was only about 20 bucks or so, basically just a plain metal cage with a fan...anyone know what I'm talking about or...

    How long before air-cooling is obsolete?

    Keeping the ever increasing heat output of today's faster and faster components in check is becoming more and more difficult with standard air cooling, especially in the GPU world...how long before your average mid to high end PC is water-cooled?

    Should I add a fan to my side panel cone?

    A long time ago I did just this and made a small cardboard duct to direct the cool air directly to the heatsink and the change was noticeable...however the fan was on top of the heatsink, not on the side. Give it a try and see what happens...most of the fun in overclocking is in the tinkering...

    I'm going to go after the heatsink sometime this week...anyone have any experience with lapping a direct contact heatpipe cooler?

    Lapped the i7

    Very true...I wasn't going for any sort of scientific result, and I can't be 100% sure that just the lapping was responsible for the temp decrease.
