    Lucky Draw - SilverStone ST80F-TI 800W Power Supply

    There's seems to be an unfortunate lack of USB Type-C peripherals for PC that can take advantage of it, or maybe I'm just not finding anything I need that can use it yet.

    Same here, there's a square msi ad in the banner ad area. Had to tab to it. Also, anyone found it funny that the mac's previous owner account was named Steve H? :D

    Official Mad Max Stronghold Trailer

    I had to read the news title twice, for a moment I thought it said "Office Mad Max Trailer" :D Looks pretty good, but after the whole Arkham Knight stuff, I'm going to wait till it's out.

    500 Million ASUS Motherboards. The Celebration Starts at [H]. - Lucky Draw

    My first Asus Motherboard was a Slot 1 Asus P2B. Together with a Celeron 300A in a slocket adapter, I was riding the magically easy 450mhz OC. I had to get rid of it along with a bunch of my old stuff to unclutter my garage. I felt like I had lost an old friend. I did fire it up one last time...

    Microsoft Ends Windows 7 Mainstream Support Today

    I don't think it means all that much for companies, at least not for us. Extended support and security updates will still be made available until 2020. We also have SA, so we are entitled to a few support calls for free. I think this matters most for consumers that need immediate help.

    Build Your Own Storage Server

    8 4TB drives in a raid 5 array? That's just asking for trouble. And Like Nate7311 said, $6700 for this build? well... that's just crazy. I did notice that the article was originally published a year ago, so that might be one of the reasons why the cost looks so high, but I built a 24 x 3TB...

    Belkin Routers Unable To Connect To The Internet?

    This truly is interesting. What would cause so many routers to go down? A Phone Home problem? Reminds me of when Sonicwall messed up their licensing servers and invalidated our licenses.

    New Device In Development To Catch Texting Drivers

    Yea... and some times it sends tickets to the wrong person. I got a red light ticket because the car in front of me with a similar car blew the red light and somehow they got my plate instead. It was a real hassle to get it thrown out, I contested it through mail, sent evidence that my car...

    NA I could really use a 1600w PSU to get my gaming rig running again, my puny 600w PSU decided to burn up on me and now I'm typing this from a small tablet.

    Microsoft Extends Windows 8.1 Update Migration Deadline

    Just because a workstation has an LSI SAS controller does not mean it's using SAS drives, the one causing us problems is loaded with SATA. This specific issue not only affects 8.1, but also Server 2012 R2, we have one brand new Supermicro server that can't even install 2012 R2 with update...

    Microsoft Extends Windows 8.1 Update Migration Deadline

    I would've hoped they extended that a bit more, there's a nasty bug with LSI SAS2 drivers that makes systems unable to boot once the update is installed.

    Disgusting Things Found Inside Computers

    ugh.. man... Don't remind me. I was brought over an old Dell PC about 2 weeks ago, we're talking Pentium 4 socket 478 era. That thing was a hazard, full of monster dust bunnies of doom that got sogged up with dog urine. Owner was not happy when I told him that I was not going to touch that...

    HP To Charge For Updates And Service Packs

    My thoughts exactly. We are an HP shop, well, not anymore. I'll no longer recommend HP servers in our department. I just hope Dell doesn't do the same in the near future.

    Intel Xeon L5639 Hexa(6) Core LGA1366 Price:US $79.80 Used Ebay Seller

    Got a Xeon E5540 to boot and run without issue on that board (Mb.g4109.002). Zero overclocking though. Don't have the board with me anymore, didn't get a chance to mod the bios.

    Intel Xeon L5639 Hexa(6) Core LGA1366 Price:US $79.80 Used Ebay Seller

    I use 48 gigs on mine for virtualization. But just for the fun of it, I did boot ram disks with Windows 7 and 8. I used an SSD to house the boot image, took about 3 - 4 mins to boot since it has to copy the image to RAM, but everything was so smooth once it was running. 32GB for ram disk, 16...

    Which OS for home ZFS system?

    But not impossible, it depends on the chipset and bios. I actually have 2 Core2 desktops and a laptop that can do it. But yes, 8GB should be plenty for a home NAS on a gigabit link.

    Which OS for home ZFS system?

    I suggest Freenas as well, simple to use with decent performance if you give it enough ram. Freenas as a VM does suffer a performance hit, but It's more than fast enough to saturate a gigabit link. It is highly recommended you pass through an HBA if you virtualize it. Running 2 of them...

    Intel Xeon L5639 Hexa(6) Core LGA1366 Price:US $79.80 Used Ebay Seller

    Got this board for 40 bucks to use with my i7 920 that the L5639 replaced and done some quick testing. No POST with hex core, long beep, very likely needs microcode update. Tested with a quad core Xeon and the I7, both worked great. 48GB of ram was no problem, very stable. Socket back...

    Silly me: using a 10 year old Seasonic 330w to OC an i4770k

    LOL, I'm amazed you reached that high. I actually made mine pop with an i7-920, a radeon x1300 and a Sabertooth when I reached close to 4ghz about 2 years ago. Before that, I was running a q9550 on it. I was trying to see how much I could get out of it while my new psu was in the mail, I...
