  1. will start looking for that, 4u is definitely not an issue i have room for at least 2 4u units. thanks for the pointer.
  2. im looking for a server case that i could put into a communications rack where all my networking equipment is. i did a bit of a search but it looks like most server running ebay are just old server cases mostly super micro but i dont have enough knowledge of them to know if i could use them, not sure if they will fit a EATX mobo or if i need to use the server mobos in there to use the hard drives control planes, any guidance here would be appreciated. i would like to reuse all the components i already have. EATX mobo ATX PSU 10 iron wolf hard drives (maybe a bit of room to expand) 2 nvidia 1660 would be nice if i could avoid breaking the bank on the case.
  3. the main system will be running Linux for my work using the 2080. and i will have a VM with the 2080ti as a passthrough for gaming on windows as a reference, this is the workstation im upgrading from https://builds.gg/builds/hellas-6288
  4. actually it does. initially it was going to be dual 2080's but them i shifted all the hardware on my old workstation and my gaming pc and unraid server. so now this TR workstation has 1 2080ti and 1 2080, my gaming pc has a 2080 and my unraid server is sitting with and old 1080ti for plex transcoding.
  5. components are starting to arrive!!
  6. this was all components I had from other things, not being used so no money saved on anything. I just actually updated my workstation, and my prev workstation will be used to update my unraid array and that is going to free up a 8700k in a Mini-ITX board that will probably now find a home in this build.
  7. im running a 2080TI driving 3 1440p 100hz ultrawide displays, I think a 2080 could do that easily too.
  8.

  9. sorry for the delays updating this project, I had a few health issues and I just stopped working on this project for a bit. here are the latest updates on how it's turning out after painting the rads and the fittings and doing some aging on them. i still need to finish working on the front and back panel mods for airflow, this case panels are surprisingly thick and my dremmel died mid-work.
  10. thanks for that, I kinda gave up on 12mm tubing and went to 16mm, in my opinion, its a lot easier to work with and way more forgiving.
  11. so HR did exactly the same they have done were a woman has been the victims of this, but somehow this is now more important because it happened to a man?
  12. no matter how you want to spin it for your convenience. this is one of the biggest issues of all OSS projects. I already do my share of documentation on all the project I contribute to. but even so bad docs is not the issue in itself, the issue is considering how things are. the "open letter" is absurd.
  13. it looks like that "open letter" is just a cry for attention. nothing else. also, the expectation that in order to make good use of an OSS project one needs to get in contact with the creator? that is the total opposite of what open source is. I saw the video on floatplane and all I have to say it 100% reflects the use of a guide like that for a normal user. I dabble in projects like this from time to time, and some times I just find a guide and roll with it, most people don't have days or weeks to research all the content of the internet to find the "right" or "perfect" step by step guide. I totally hate it when the Linux community get angry when something is absolutely horrible to find. information is very outdated in some places and finding the right guide or documentation is very time consuming some times.
  14. you can't keep anything secure if you don't update. period. on the very very least you need to run constant security updates. if you're looking for security and stability I can recommend Debian.
  15. i been playing around with fitting all the parts. this is my last attempt. i ran out of 16mm petg tube, i may order more and try to do 2 90 bends on the tube from the RAD to the GFX and try to get it parallel to the other tube. next step i will paint the RADs red and the grill leave black. i will also be painting all the fittings red.
