  1. IBM x3850 GPU Help

    Molex over usb is a DIY thing I believe. Shouldn't be hard to do but you'll be limited to the 5V the USB port can handle. On the other hand, I found these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/External-MOLEX-Power-Supply-US-SELLER-12V-DC-4-Pin-Adapter-Cable-Cord-NEW-/360170366699 https://www.amazon.com/110v-Power-Supply-Molex-5000mA/dp/B002TJNDU4 Dunno what it's worth tho.
  2. Memory_Management

    Try to run a memtest on it to be sure but I agree it's almost sure it's a faulty stick.
  3. IBM x3850 GPU Help

    Hi, You would need something like that if your PSU has sata connectors: https://www.allekabels.be/interne-voedingskabel/7032/1145920/interne-voedingskabel.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjw--DLBRCNARIsAFIwR247BamxJbReto9-PzP06fDqq84kjCp4FijUmXEk3SikRpOkwSZZBwIaAkqSEALw_wcB Then you can find this kind of riser: https://www.highflow.nl/modding/stroomkabels/pci-express-pci-e-x16-extension-cable-riser-molex-powered-19cm.html I think it also exists for pci-e x8.
  4. LTT Storage Rankings

    Hi guys, As promised, here are some more recent pictures of my setup I finally have the last pair of rails for the 2U chassis. Rack as it is now, the top still requires some work and shelves to serve for miscellaneous storage place And here's a little close-up for the hardware bit: From top to bottom: Netgear access point TP-Link TL-ER6020 VPN router Cable manager (That kind of manager is a really a must have for a rack, wonder how I did without it for so long) D-Link DGS 1510-20 L3 switch with 2 10Gb ports RDP Server (not a Xeon anymore but Ryzen 7 1700X with 32Gb DDR4 2133 ECC) NAS in it's 4U chassis with it's 4x3Tb backplane (Not a Ryzen CPU, it's the wrong sticker) 2 UPS's to protect everything. I placed pieces of paper over the Power on LED's cause they are quite aggressive
  5. Where are you from?

    I never really thought about it that way but... yeah, they're also not my taste for sure
  6. Where are you from?

    Yep, you're right about the sprouts origin
  7. DIY NAS

    For a gigabit connection, going for HDD only is good choice, i.e I have a 10Gb connection to my server and only use HDD's but it is very fast for file transfer so I don't need caching, even when my girlfriend's using it at the same time. For the PSU, you can pick up a good 300-400w seasonic which is globally a secure choice or you can check here: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Review_Cat&recatnum=13 There's a $hitload of PSU reviews on this site.
  8. DIY NAS

    The UPS is an important factor for a NAS. You can of course, live without ECC. As it's your first NAS and you have tight budget, this board is a good starting point. If you need beefier afterwards, you'll always be able to upgrade.
  9. What would you charge to fix someones PC?

    Well, I usually charge 35€ / hour when troubleshooting/working on the hardware,... Otherwise system build: 100€ all inclusive assemble hardware: 50€ troubleshooting (soft/hard): 35€/h software installation: 35€/h Software tutorial/assistance 35€/h For family and friends, well, the cost of hardware + 5% I'm not a considered as a pro in the segment so I do it only for people living nearby who I do this stuff.
  10. DIY NAS

    And some say not: http://louwrentius.com/please-use-zfs-with-ecc-memory.html ECC vs non ECC for zfs has always been a big discussion topic, if you go for non-ECC you'll be fine but I tend not to advise it. Anyway, I'd just say try and keep the one you prefer based on functionality/ease of use you need.
  11. DIY NAS

    Hi, Everything depends on how much you want to spend on your NAS. If you wish to stay at lower costs at the moment, this 40€ E35M1-I will be OK, even slow CPU's are able to handle storage appliances. Because it has no support for ECC ram, you'll have to stay away from ZFS so no FreeNAS but you have other options too like Open Media Vault (that I use myself). As caching is concerned, FreeNAS offers the best solution, OMV is not that good for it but it's performance is already perfect (No problem to saturate 1Gb with 3 WD Red in RAID 5) I hope this helps.
  12. Where are you from?

    I live in Brussels, Belgium now, hopefully not for too long anymore
  13. 3 fans for this motherboard?

    Any splitter can basically do the job. Personally I use Noctua ones.
  14. I had the same and I have to say it really helps in some situations. Where I live now, drivers don't get this kind of driving training and so most drivers don't know how to react and when it snows or gets wet, it's road panic all over the streets creating massive traffic jams.
