    Any recommendations for a portable 2TB storage drive?

    Well the T5 is usbc 3.1 and says up to 540mbs not sure about actual speed tho. I'm not sure if I would be gaining anything significant paying a bit more buying a 2.5 drive or m.2 and putting it inside an enclosure, Any thing I go with I would use at least usbc 3.1 but preferably 3.1 gen 2

    Want to upgrade to a Ryzen 3000 (maybe 4000), and need to know about DDR4 and the AMD IMC

    I recommend no matter what clock you may be able to hold stable, stick with buy 4 sticks of the fastest memory you budget for because you have the potential to be able to run that memory at lower speeds but tighter timings and the new ryzen loves it's timings as much as it loves ram speed I...

    3 Phase PDU at home

    Just googled a picture of one and I really dont think there is anything you can do to get it working 100% without 3 power phases... you may be able to get it mostly working with your residential 208 tho and possibly just loose 1/3 of the plugs... really dont think it's even worth trying 120v...

    3 Phase PDU at home

    He said it is a 3 phase with a 4 prong connector so there is a 3rd phase complicating things... As long as there is nothing digital should be fine with 120v but you most certainly not have power on some of the connectors on the pdu from the missing phase. Best bet here is if you are dead set...

    My first watercooling loop (Not the usual, I suspect)

    You may have already said why and I missed it, but why do you not just have the output of the cpu block go straight into the gpu block? Would likely help with the water flow as well.

    Should I wait till summer for the GTX 1180 or get a 2070 or 2080 now ?

    I dont see why nvidia would make a new high tier card without ray tracing that could potentially ruin there RTX plans for the future... but then again it truly would not surprise me....

    I need a simple USB switch to use my KB (and printer) on 2 PCs

    A usb print server adapter could solve the printer issue if his printer doesnt already have wifi built in and with the printer being on wifi you can print from anything on the network (maybe even remotely) I love having wifi on my printer so I can print from my phone or tablet

    Watercooled DDC?

    5930K @ 4.2GHz a bottlebeck for 2080 Ti?

    At 1440p the cost of a new cpu and motherboard in no way would justify the very small gain in fps... from everything I see you will only see the fps gains from a high dollar new cpu at 1080p

    Receiver Loses Signal When Turning Off Light Switch
