  1. Hi all, So I live in Australia, and I don’t yet have nbn (what a surprise). I’m still on an ADSL connection, and we recently moved houses and got a new modem. While connecting and testing the network, I had a quick look at the splitter/filter that plugs into the wall outlet. As it turns out, the in/out ports on the splitter are pretty weird, at least to me. They fit an RJ45 connector, but they only have 4 contacts in the port (Is 8P4C a thing?). But, RJ11 connectors are used for phone lines and ADSL connections. So telstra have little plastic inserts that convert the RJ45 into an RJ11. What is the point of all this conversion even though there’s only 4 contacts in the port!?
  2. Now that looks pretty funky. I'll definitely check that one out.
  3. Hi All! So, in my case, I've got two empty 5.25" bays and i really hate the way they look. A couple days ago i filled one up with a disk reader and i just want something to fill the empty slots. They don't necessarily have to be the most useful add-ins, just something to fill the space. I was considering a floppy disk reader as my parents have a VERY substantial amount of these, and i also kind of want one of these: https://www.kioskreader.com/products-ex-s5 Buuut I'm finding it incredibly difficult to find one, as they're meant for photo kiosks in shops, not really for home use. A fan speed controller would be nice as well. Any suggestions about any of this would be immensely helpful, as my PC looks a little too bare-bones for my liking. Thanks!
  4. Duly noted. I think I'll hang onto them and chalk them up as my first ever collected CPU's.
  5. You've got a good point there. Resale isn't really on my mind at the moment, so i guess I'll keep them. Who knows, I might desperately need a Pentium from 2008 in the years to come.
  6. So, I recently salvaged four different CPU's, as my high school was getting rid of some older workstation desktops. I managed to scrounge up: Intel Pentium E5300 2.70 GHz Intel Pentium E5400 2.70 GHz Intel Core i5 2500 3.30 GHz Intel Core i5 660 3.33 GHz I kinda want to start a general CPU collection, but i'm not sure these are even worth the small amount of space they take up (especially the Pentiums). Should I use them as the beginnings of my collection or should I find something a bit cooler? PS - I only have a (presumably) working motherboard for the 2500. PPS - this is my first ever post on these forums so i hope i'm doing it right.
