  1. Apparently making disk images is very CPU intensive. Im trying to make a 1TB back up image for my Macbook, its pinning the fans and still hitting 76c lul.


    On the upside, I just picked up some really cheap 2TB drives I am going to use as first-level backups for all my software n stuff. "Vault" storage is handed by an 8TB WD White.


    Everything is set up to be as painless as possible should a drive croak. Everything on the 4TB array (JBOD) is on the 8TB. Should the JBOD fail I'm out nothing, should the 8TB fail it is comparatively cheap and simple to pay for data recovery.


    I may also pick up some cheap 1TB drives, make a JBOD array, and do burst coin mining for a couple extra bucks a month. I have a source of really cheap drives.

      Yeah, my dad used to work at WD and we have about a quarter of a petabyte of drives. I didn't know that making isos took so much CPU.

      @Schnoz Now bouncing against 81c, seems the cooler has heat soaked. TJ on this chip is 100c, so I'm not worried ?‍♂️
