so ive been contemplating lately in getting a UPS for both my desktop and home server.. the specs as follows:
i7 3770k @ 3.5ghz
corsair 16gb ddr3 1600
msi gtx 680 lighting
x-fi fatal1ty titanium champion
2x SSD (128gb and 256gb)
1x wd black 2tb
ive been looking for a case like this but the lack of optical drive is preventing me in buying this.
any plans on making a revision with a slim optical drive? maybe mounted at the bottom?
recently i got a pretty decent deal on 5x4tb hdd HGST 0S03359
and was looking to expand my storage. my current setup is:
kingston 8gb ram
all the sata ports on the mobo...
are the HDD's you purchased the same as these ones?
i mean in addition to goharddrive's 1yr warranty does it also have 5yr limited warranty with hgst?
i just got this case and planning this server build with some spare parts:
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333
im planning on putting the max 10hdds in.
will my CX430M be enough to power up my system or should i go for the CX500M?
is there a difference? if i were to buy the exact same RAM with same timings, voltage, speed, brand, etc.., would the XMP profile be affected?
it seems that buying 2sets of 2x8gb ddr1600 ram is cheaper than buying 4x8gb ram ddr1600.
planning on putting this on my buddy's...
my colleague already made up their mind in regards to the psu, ram, optical drive, keyboard + mouse, case, os, monitor
