  1. I did look at a few of these, especially the 12 bay. When the power supply inevitably fails, to replace it will be quite a cost.
  2. Mainly because I know there's going to be quite a few drives in this system. To find a PSU with a high enough output to cover all of them is hard. Especially in a 2U form factor. Going with the 4224 case, I can use a standard ATX PSU and not have to worry about sourcing a stupidly priced rare item. I hope this clarifies it a little.
  3. Hi, I've currently got a 4 bay Qnap with the plex app, but it can't trans code anything. It's really frustrating. So, I'm going to build a plex server that will not need updating for quite a while. I just want to be able to set and forget. I'm also Case: Norco RPC-4224 Rackmount Server Chassis - $532.00 Motherboard: Gigabyte X170-WS ECC Motherboard - $289.00 CPU: Intel Core i5 7600K - $299.00 Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock CPU Cooler - $45.00 RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M2A2133C13 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 Black - $239.00 Storage: Western Digital WD Red 4TB WD40EFRX - $205.00 SAS Controller: Yet to be determined. OS: unRAID - USD$129.00 (All prices in AUS/AUD) I'm open to any constructive suggestions. I've also thought of perhaps AMD? Never used them. I'm also looking for some really good software to rip all of my blu-rays and dvd's. I've been using MakeMKV but the files are quite huge. I've come to the conclusion that if I really want to watch a movie in all it's glory, I can just grab the disk. I'm also thinking of building two of these servers and have the other at a relatives house. That way they can both sync and we can both add to the huge collection.
  4. I like the expansion options and the laser distance finder. Won't be long until someone hacks it to actually measure distance. Love it.
  5. Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom says users will be able to record 15-second clips by tapping a video icon on the app. There will also be opertunities for these to have small video effects placed on them to make them a little different such as contrast, making them black and white or different hues. The app will record for as long as the button is held down or until 15 seconds is up, which ever comes first.

  6. Sony has recently taken it upon themselves to release a very short, helpful and deep insight into how to share games on the new PS4 console. Well Done.

  7. I've got an application where a usb device needs to be run for approx 25-30m. I've heard that usb doesn't really work over 5m. I came across this solution that should in theory solve that problem. This can also be run to around 50m I was wondering if anyone of you have used these before and had any luck or not. Thanks in advance.
  8. One of the very first Apple 1 computers from 1976 will go up for action as a 70 year old man, Ted Perry who made a swap for this second hand machine. The trade was some other computer equipment for an Apple 1 only 3 or 4 years old. This computer designed by two college dropouts (at the time) known as Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak is going to start at $US300,000 and could reach as high as $US500,000. Another Apple 1 was sold last month for a record $US671,400 by a German auction house, breaking a previous record of $US640,000 set in November 2012. With this item alone being one of only 200 made, stored in a cardboard box at Mr Perry's house in Califonia, the outlook is looking bright for this piece of priceless history.

  9. For some reason I usually have Seagate drives in my PC and I've got 4xWD Drives in my NAS. I've also found Seagate to be more reliable. But at the end of the day, it's apples v apples. I've got WD greeens in my NAS as it's only used for network backups, so I don't need the performance.
