    I've grown up in a small farming community my whole life, its been hard for me to pursue any type of electronic entertainment just due to the fact of where i am located. The internet speed is abysmal and i am one of the few people who enjoys electronics and video entertainment. I make the most of it in hopes that one day I can move somewhere more accommodating to my interests.

  1. So i guess this is the solution im looking for? http://www.istarusa.com/en/raidage/products.php?model=DAGE412U20-3MS is that right? would i need to wire all 3 ports in the back for this chassis?
  2. I also would like to refrain from having cables hanging out the back of my chassis, and would rather have a port and use an external cable. I could be convinced if it was not too ugly.
  3. Ok, so today I have been looking for a long term solution to my home Unraid box being full. I currently have this case. (http://www.istarusa.com/en/istarusa/products.php?model=D-410-DE8-225T) I am setup with some 8TB disks and some other second hand hardware. But the issue is that the server is really getting full. I have the black tray handles and would like to build a DAS that has the same trays, or even the same enclosures. I found that istar sells this chassis (http://www.istarusa.com/en/istarusa/products.php?model=E-490-JB) but i am not sure how exactly to make it work. I can get more of the drive enclosures and fill the chassis no problem. I have no idea how to even do something like this in a case like that. I would ideally like to just grab a bunch of the istar 5.25 to 3.5 tray-less enclosures that match my existing chassis then wire them all to have just a sff-8088 port in the back. (My server already has a sff-8088 external port on the LSI 414e that i have.) The idea is that i'm looking for something like this (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LSQOY6G/?coliid=IIFZY6G21MO0I&colid=33G0P1X5AFZZ6&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it) but with istar trays that match my server that i already have. Wont mind buying parts and building somthing, but have no idea where to even start and google has failed me. Thanks for the help!
  4. yeah will do, can i ask you one more question @jonnyGURU? Do i need a redundant psu for my unraid server? its just me and friends that use it, but it does handle all of my file management here at the house and some stuff remotely for work, just curious if i should invest in one or if they are loud and not worth it for a home server.
  5. yeah the sf750 i dont mind the silverstone, and i assume that it will be fine. the warranty is good and its should do what i need it to, i am worried about the cables being long enough tho, so idk about that.
  6. this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/nJrmP6/corsair-750-w-80-platinum-certified-fully-modular-sfx-power-supply-cp-9020186-na
  7. well according to pcpartpicker i only have two options in the capacity and dual eps that i need. a corsair and a silverstone. and the corsair isnt sold on amazon and isnt prime, so looks like im going silverstone
  8. @jonnyGURUidk just doesnt seem "right" i dont think its founded in any sense of reality, im just being stubborn i guess. Do you have any to suggest? or any to stay away from?
  9. ok @jonnyGURUthat makes sense, i hate to have to do that, but it might be my only option. I found the FSP Twins PSU, and although I do not really need redundancy i guess it wouldnt hurt to have, and it does solve the problem with the fan situation. I wouldnt mind finding another case, but i really fell in love with it and even tho I have it here already I would be willing to go another route, i just cant find anything that is in that price range that I really like and that supports what i wanna put into it. Due to it being a fairly simple machine that isnt doing anything fancy (storage is already handled by a Unraid server in the rack) I have a hard time justifying a huge 4u or 3u chassis just for some game servers and a vm box. any suggesstions there? are the FSP twin PSUs any good?
  10. Hey all, so recently I have been building a server to use for general tasks in the homelab, some VM's and such, but I have been having a couple issues with finding a good power supply that I am happy with. The chassis that I will be using is this one here by silverstone: https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=763&area=en despite it being 2u (which I would rather try to avoid building in as I have plenty op space in the rack) I like it alot. I got it for a really good deal from a shop here locally and am super happy with how all of my components fit in it. I think it will do an amazing job for me, but again the PSU situation. As you can see from the pictures of the chassis, the PSU that it says it supports is "any ATX psu", and i assume that means that any desktop PSU will fit, but the issue that I think im going to have is with airflow. all of the PSU units that I have found on the market are all the top fan design, and that would get choked by the fact that the case is only 2u tall. I would like to find a modern PSU that has all of the protections and modern stuff built in, but is the older, rear fan design. I am open to all suggestions as to what to choose, and would love to have somthing in the 650 to 750 watt range. It needs to be able to support dual 8-pin EPS connectors as I will be placing a dual socket board into the system with dual E5 2630 V3 chips. I have a old Asus Z10PA-D8 board that I wanna use. So all in all, i would love to know what you guys think i should do, and of course, i appreciate all the help
  11. But i also have no idea what processor would be supported, or another way of being able to find out which processors are supported, if any
  12. Yeah, the CPU upgrade "should" be possible, from what ive seen the processor can be removed. but why would it be harder? just a harder teardown to replace it? i dont have any problem with that if thats the case.
  13. Okay, so i have a big battlestation that i sit at normally and do upwards of 80 percent of all of my computing and gaming on, but i also have this laptop laying around. I would love to know what, if any, upgrades i can do with the machine, and would love input on what would be a good option for it. The laptop in question is a HP Pavilion DV7-1451nr. I like it for alot of reasons. one its a laptop that was bought for me by a family member a while ago, and it has some sintemental value to it. For two, it has ALL of the I.O. that i could ever want. I love how much i can plug into this thing and what i can use it for. Currently the machine is running the latest version of the Elementary OS flavor of linux, and it does very well with the older hardware, but leaves alot to be desired in the processor department. It has a AMD Turion X2 dual core processor in it now, and the computer is really struggling to even just do things such as watch youtube. the low amount of memory installed (4GB) hasnt really been a problem, but i think that the spec page says that it can support up to 8GB (https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01753033) and would love to know what memory i should be looking for to upgrade this thing. I have no idea if the processor upgrade is even possible on this machine, but i would love to know your guys input. Thanks for the help!
  14. yeah im hoping your right about the bolts. and yeah, ive tried to get ahold of antec a couple times now, but they dont seem to be very willing to even respond at all. im gonna keep trying, but if all else fails, ill buy the aluminum side panel one before they go out of stock on newegg... hopefully
