    They make outdoor ovens too, or you can use a pellet smoker as one. Alternately if your house came with or if you installed dual ovens and never use the lower and and don't have any disabled or short people that cook in your kitchen, why there is an otherwise useless oven consuming cubic feet in...

    z490 and populating ALL 4 DIMM Slots, which mem layout is preferred?

    Fair, it's been a while since I done Z. The opposite has been my experience with running 8 16GB DIMM's in hedt. It seems like with all these ITX freaks running around these days with 2 DIMM slots seem to have the best memory overclocking.

    Cleaning your keyboard in the dishwasher

    If you have hard water in your region you could use distilled water and manually wash it with hot distilled water. Or you could install a reverse osmosis system and spray it down with that however IDK what pure water would do to the innards of a dishwasher.

    Any benefit to RAID 1?

    I second the synologies even my sister in law can use it and they use hardly any energy, one can deploy it in a loved one's closet and if it's not a frequently used closet they might not ever know where their backups go or where the LAN movies are other than accessible on their LAN.

    memory slots failing - Is the memory controller on the motherboard or in the CPU (Intel 3930K CPU, X79 chipset)

    You're doing it wrong, your central(!) air conditioning has a condensation drain tube that runs to the outdoors. There is no bucket to fill so long as that drain tube remains clear and is appropriately sized. You might want to look at a different insulation strategy or obtaining a more powerful...

    memory slots failing - Is the memory controller on the motherboard or in the CPU (Intel 3930K CPU, X79 chipset)

    this is good except that air conditioners remove humidity in the conditioned space they make systems that will run until the humidity is below a set point. If it works in AR it will work in the wetter parts of TX too.

    Worth it to go from x79 to x99?

    The only reason I upgrade to x99 is because my 79 became unreliable and it was easier to buy x99 parts than x79 ones on the day it became unreliable enough for me to order another mess of parts.
