  1. Thanks! Why is that preferable to using plugins?
  2. I do want the drives easy to upgrade! What do I want to run VMs for?
  3. Here is my hardware: Xeon E3 1240v5 32 GB (2 DIMM) Crucial ECC RAM 6x8TB Seagate Iron Wolf HDD m.2 system drive I am CURRENTLY RUNNING WINDOWS 10 with about 13TB of data used in my BIOS RAID6 array. I chose Windows 10 at first because I needed to run HD Home Run. Now, that's no longer relevant and I'm free! Use cases are: Media server for Windows, Kodi, and Mac, and iOS devices Home server for files and such Torrent seeding and download ROM server for HyperSpin/emulation Potentially as server for my D&D game? Maybe not... Note that I have to figure out some way to incorporate all the data I currently have on my Windows drives in the machine, so please take that into account! All that said, which direction should I go, OS-wise?
  4. Hey all, Building a new system in which I'll have 2x240 rads and one pump. May add an inline temp monitor. What sort of arrangement do you suggest for controlling fans and pump speeds? My mobo has headers, but I think I'd prefer some sort of hidden component for a more stealth look. Is an Aquaero still the state of the art? Is there something that will also allow me to control LEDs? Thanks!
  5. Truly fantastic work--sleeving and all the rest.
  6. Hm. I do wonder what the integrity would be like. Maybe I could machine my own PCIe slots. Not just to see whether SLI is possible...
  7. Thanks kind-of my point, though. These tools/implements rely on using the mid plate for support. How can this be done with an inverted case?
  8. Inverted case...Thanks for pointing that out. I think I might need more help with how to actually make the PCIe slot into a vertically mounted GPU on an inverted case.
  9. Title kinda says it all. I'd love to do a vertical GPU setup, but have an inverted mobo. Has anyone seen someone do this? Seems like most solutions leverage some kind of leaning on the midplate for support...
  10. I got it from Silicon Lottery, so it is in fact delidded. They guaranteed 4.8 stable, and that was their best performing class of 7900Xes. I get some crashes there, so keep it at 4.7 24/7. Seems like sticking with the 7900X is the way to go then.
  11. In light of that, any reason to upgrade from my 7900X? I currently have it at 4.7.
  12. In light of the above, if I had to choose: i9-9900K, i7-9800X, or other?
  13. I've heard that with NVlink (and based on my own testing of 2x2080Tis), scaling has gotten a lot better! Any recommendations for particular Z390 boards? I'd like something without a log of branding because it's going to be upside down in a reverse case...
