  1. Well it would never experience that but it might slip if you moved it around. If you want something to stay on more permanently you can get a matching set of neodymium magnets.
  2. Since they're plastic the regular magnetic strips will work, I've installed clear acrylic panels before for others using nothing but magnetic strips around the entire edge of the case before without any issues.
  3. CPU fan only in a Minibox M350 case?

    As mentioned it shouldn't not fit in a larger form factor or case but your going to be limiting your cooling capabilities if you go smaller than you can physically fit. The noctua cooler you have should be alright, and as for tiny air cooler's go they are some of the best performing. There is other options such as the Cryorig C7 which is very close in performance.
  4. Best bang for your buck thermal pad?

    This wouldn't be too bad for the price, however I don't see this having a huge impact on temps. https://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-Thermal-Efficient-Conductivity-Handling/dp/B00UYTTXSM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1531958563&sr=8-3
  5. First Liquid Cooling

    The order doesn't matter as long as the res is above and just before the pump to ensure it gets a constant feed and doesn't run dry.
  6. Rechargeable Batteries

    Ni-Mh has a nominal voltage of 1.2V but when fully charged they rise up to around 1.5V max so there is a somewhat large voltage range. The only time where Ni-mh might not perform as well is if the device requires high amperage and high voltage to get the best performance such as in high power LED flashlights. For general electronics around the house and tech gear you'll rarely see an issue like that.
  7. Rechargeable Batteries

    As mentioned Eneloops are pretty much the best you can get, usually a good sign is if they're made in Japan, I'm quite certain the ones from Amazon are essentially rebrands. I've used a fair number of Amazon basics rechargeable batteries and never had an issue.
  8. Rechargeable Batteries

    For your basic devices high quality Ni-mh are the way to go, if your looking for high current or power draw devices you would be looking at Lithium but the voltage for those would be 3.7-4.0V There are non-rechargeable 1.5V lithium's for flashlights or energizer's version but that defeats the purpose.
  9. fresh install but keep all my games and files

  10. @an3k Please don't forget to format the post as per the Tech News Section, as of currently it has been moved to Liquid and Exotic cooling until updated.
  11. Macbook i9 massive throttling

    As mentioned this was posted a bit earlier. -Locked-
  12. I’ve not heard of that one but in general you want to make sure it provides good quality power just like a regular ATX power supply.
  13. UPS Sugession

    It’s more of a safety issue than anything else but you can get a socket tester to see if there is a fault with the way it was wired up in the wall. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000RUL2UU/ref=pd_aw_lpo_469_bs_img_1/134-9469697-9886710?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=KTJ7SDCGTRM4X7Q8M2PD
  14. UPS suggestion,

    I'd recommend the PFC units or the Pro sinewave units from APC but that would work. As said your runtime will not be an hour even being over 800W, for those UPS's you can configure auto shutdown on your NAS once the battery runs down if there is an extended power outage.
  15. UPS suggestion,

    Your not going to be able to power it for an hour with most UPS's, most are for maybe 10 mins before saving and shutting down. You can overrate the UPS so it's larger than what is needs but there's a certain limit to how long it can run unless you get extended run time units which are in a different class. That NAS will only use maybe 50-75W max but even with a 450W unit you loose that efficiency at a low wattage and only get around 40 mins of runtime. http://www.apc.com/shop/us/en/products/APC-Back-UPS-BE850M2-850VA-2-USB-charging-ports-120V/P-BE850M2 http://www.apc.com/products/runtimegraph/runtime_graph.cfm?base_sku=BE850M2&chartSize=large
