  1. Just a large barrel that connects to the gutters of your house to collect rainwater.
  2. Try and cool a PC using thermal mass alone. In the UK, a 350 litre water butt is the same price as a triple radiator. It would be pretty neat (but completely impractical) to see if plumbing the waterblocks directly to a couple of waterbutts and 700litres of water is actually worthwhile at providing better temps. You could even put the pumps in the waterbutts and the waterbutts outside to get rid of the noise completely. Might need a bit of antifreeze though in Canada.
  3. As the title suggests, I plan to dual boot mx linux and windows by installing them on two different ssd's. I don't want to mess around with bootloaders or anything like that as I don't plan to switch between os' very frequently (only when I need to run a windows program). I already have windows installed. Can I simply disconnect the windows ssd and connect a blank ssd to install mx linux before reconnecting the windows ssd and changing the boot order in the bios so the mx linux one is first? Many thanks
  4. As it turns out, it was a theme in chrome that was messing up the tabs. I changed the theme and it is all fine now. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  5. For some reason, all of the inactivate tabs on chrome look strange and some are completely blurred. Any suggestions of possible fixes? I have already tried disabling hardware acceleration.
  6. Check out @smicha 14x 1080's render station. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxzzySn5rLO7S6ui4D_wCwQ?&ab_channel=smicha7 Seems pretty similar to what you want.
  7. Get a 256 gb MLC ssd of your choice to act as cache then a 4tb Red for mass storage
  8. Did you really have to say this 3 times?
  9. Why don't you use Seagate's Archive Drives to well....archive your videos? Are you using the enterprise capacity drives just because you can?

  10. You learn something new everyday. Thanks Sebastian-Very informative
  11. At our school it is: 9 = High A* 8 = Scrape A* 7 = A 6 = B etc....
  12. Why don't you upload the WAN Show in 4k upsampled vs 1080p @LinusTech?
  13. @nickmlg More thumbnails like this please. Shows off the product (kinda) and hints at the opinion of the presenter, Much better than what ever this is. https://postimg.org/image/obdhc7u1l/
  14. Question @AshleyAshes. Although you are right about how compressing a lossy video format into another lossy video format such as h264 into h265 will always result in a loss of information/degradation in quality and the simple solution is to simply have more HDD space. Have you not considered for the majority of people who aren't cinephiles won't be able to tell the difference due to the limitations of their TV or projector and instead just want to save some money instead or have an encoded h265 version to backup into the cloud in case their house burned down and all their blue ray rips were destroyed. If quality was of the up most concern, why don't the published simply use the RAW recording and not compress it at all (I am not an expert in this field so this is actually an honest question) or encode it in h265 to begin with (also an honest question).
  15. you say "faster" (than ram) and then say "bottleneck from SATA." WHAT? SSD's are orders of magnitudes slower the RAM. Maybe when xpoint comes out definitely not at the moment
  16. 6 Months Time.....24 Seagate Nytro's
  17. I think people just use the c word to act "cool" in the comments sections. Much improved Edzel. Keep it up.
  18. @smicha Are you planning to do this again with the 1080ti when (if) they launch it later this year? EDIT: Realised Octane only supports CUDA
