    HP G7 with MSA70 have some questions.

    They are sitting on top of each other in my server rack. I thought about doing a 8087 to 8088 cable out to the msa70 but then id loose 4 of the internal drives as the P410I only has 2 SFF-8087 ports on it. I found that card on listed on ebay yesterday for $150 so i pulled the trigger on that...

    HP G7 with MSA70 have some questions.

    Ahh ok so the LSI card is no good for this. Thankfully I only spent 20 bucks on it lol. I do want to run the 8 internal drives as well as the 25 in the msa70 as one large volume to use as storage. Do I need to look into a new card to replace the LSI as well as the HP P410I? If so what cord...

    HP G7 with MSA70 have some questions.

    Thanks for the reply and I get what you are saying about the msa70 having a SAS expander in it already. The reason I bought the 20 dollar LSI card is so I could connect the msa70 to the G7 server. Or is there another card that I should be using that will let me connect the G7 to the msa70?

    HP G7 with MSA70 have some questions.

    Hi everyone! I haven’t posted on here in a while but I’m kinda new to network storage and I wanted to upgrade my home file server which is just a old computer with 4x 3Tb drives in it running server 2012’s software raid 5 on it. I wanted to move to some more hardware raid based as well as...

    Trying to set up cheap HTPC...need a little help.

    If you need a video card that is cheap I would say the AMD 5450. They range $20-$30 bucks. Sapphire has a passive cooled model that i use for less noise from fans, and less power used. I've used mine for ~3 ish plus years and it's great. Looking on newegg you can get the Sapphire card for...

    Debt-Ceiling Shutdown Will Close Some Gov’t Websites

    The only thing I can say is this: I don’t vote because this is what happens…. We vote in complete retards that tricked all the voters that did vote for them. I almost think of them as suckers for falling for it. (For those of you that do vote I’m not trashing on them/you...

    Senate Passes Internet Sales Tax Bill

    This is what I was wondering myself. I live in MI and sales tax here is only 6% but I know other states are 7-8% and some states have 0% sales tax. I think Montana doesn't? I could be wrong and something i heard. But hell if so I see a lot of Etailers setting up shop there to keep customers...

    Bought two Sapphire Radeon 7970s 3GB OC with BOOST --- Running too hot?

    I have the same card (but only running 1 of them) but I've Oc'd mine to 1.1ghz on the core and mine has never seen above 65C I can sometimes get it into the low 60's. So the only thing I could think of is break out the Dremel and put some slots in the bottom of the case and if you need too...

    Monitor 30's sound like junk on X-Fi Titanium

    You don't have them wired in a bi-wire or bi-amp config do you? i bought the Monitor 30's for my brother and he had the speakers sounding like crap, or underwater or as you put it "in a plastic box" i disconnected the wiring from both ends and then re-wired them up, made sure all EQ environments...

    Titans already on Ebay for 1600 USD

    It could be a good lesson for Ebay as far as keeping a better eye on whats being sold on Ebay. It is protected by the buyer protection so if you did buy one I am assuming that if you got a fake titan that's really a 660 or 680 (or hell a plastic box) you could file a claim with Ebay and get...

    HTPC / PVR / BD MKV's

    I'm still waiting on my BD player to arrive (lame fed-ex shipping) and a few other parts just yet to build my new HTPC. If WMC is going to run Infitni TV better then XBMC 12 RC3 then sure I'll just use that. I should of mentioned that my cable provider is Comcast (my options are limited and...

    Controlling my HTPC...

    Nope not cheap. I grabbed a MCE remote for the IR receiver (chucked the remote) and a Harmony C300 remote (they are cheapest and not as full of features like the others are) I think I'm into my setup for 65 bucks. but again you get what you pay for. I use Event Ghost to launch certain...

    looking for a new tv, around $500

    I was reading that best buy was having a 25% off on some of their TV's for the super bowl. You could probably find something in the 500 range I'm sure. I was looking at a $1300 Samsung that with discount is $899 but that was a 55" LED LCD. If you look smaller I'm sure there is one in the 500...

    HTPC / PVR / BD MKV's

    HTPC / PVR / BD MKV's

    Thanks for in input. So i would be better off putting the blue ray player in my main rig to cut some time off from it? And i can use Make MKV to rip them then compress them down with Handbrake. That sounds easy enough. I'm at work or else I would dive into the tutorials but I'll leave that...

    HTPC sound quality question.

    Yes I normally run HDMI but as I look at it now I'm only running in stereo (fronts only) with no option for 5.1. Also I am running windows 7. So if I right click on the speaker on the task bar and select play back devices, right click on AMD HDMI output and select configur speakers that's all I...

    HTPC sound quality question.

    So I have an odd question. For my HTPC I use a Sapphire 5450 512mb video card and run my video and sound via HDMI to a Yamaha receiver. When playing back movies that have DTS or DD 5.1 and I change XBMC audio settings to DTS, or DD or anything other than analog the video play back pretty...
