  1. It depends on the fans. some have it on, some don't. We can do an average... According to Google a 120mm Case Fan uses, on average, 4 watts. We know all case fans run on 12v. 4 / 12 = 0.3a (per fan) 0.3 x 4 = 1.2a total
  2. Well the equation to work it out is very simple I = P / V Take the voltage of one of the fans and divide it by the watts it uses and it will tell you how many amps one fan needs. Unfortunately without knowing the exact voltage and wattage of the fans its impossible to know how many amps you need.
  3. If you're worried buy a fan hub, they're cheap enough and take their own separate power from a SATA cable. You can plug the hub into the board then all the fans into the hub. IMO 4 fans on a single connector might be pushing it a bit though I cannot say for sure without knowing the current draw of the fans and the max amperage of the connector.
  4. There's a good selection of self hosted home automation services available, Linus mentioned one a few weeks back that he uses for his garage doors. Some of them support Google Home and/or Alexa integration which is important unless you want to start writing your own speech recognition libraries. Assuming you're OK with coding it shouldn't be too hard to get Alexa/Home to sent a WoL magic packet to your PC using a voice command.
  5. I'm confused though, why does a console not count as a dedicated player? That unit you linked has has an MSRP of £199, on eBay right now you can get a refurbished Xbox One X for £219 which will play all your movies plus you get an entire Xbox for an extra £20. There's a reason why you see the same suggestions made over and over again and its usually because something makes much more sense than the alternatives.
  6. RGB takes its power directly from the separate RGB cable. Standard RGB pulls 12v and addressable RGB pulls 5v. You don't need to include any RGB fans lights in your ohms law calculations. Edit - Sorry, I read that back and yes, you do need to include the fans but not the LEDs.
  7. Thanks, you've offered me more info in 15 minutes than OVHs documentation has in 24 hours. I guess they keep documentation vague since support is not free.
  8. OVH. OK, that makes sense. Then would I need to define each Apache Virtual Server as a CNAME also? Thought so but when I tried adding it I got a warning about the entry possibly causing a conflict with an existing entry. I guess this is just generic "If A or AAA exists while adding A or AAA then WARN" logic.
  9. After destroying my lab webserver with a missing . I decided to bite the bullet and move it off my NAS onto a VPS. I've got everything setup on the VPS now and its all working however I'm not 100% sure about editing the DNS Zone record for my new domain name and I have a few questions. Right now I'm half way through the 48 hour wait for new domain propagation anyway so I cannot actually do anything until tomorrow but still... My understanding is that all I have to do is edit the A record and point it to the IP of my VPS and that should work. Is this correct?
  10. Honestly, I don't consider any of it valuable enough to warrant the space for backing up. I've taken my Apache configs because I have some with proxy & rewrite rules that took me a while to get right but other than that, its nothing I cannot just redownload. Its only time. Luckily my SQL server is on my NAS so I've not lost anything from that. You want to know the REALLY bad thing? This is in a VM
  11. Thanks for the help, I really do appreciate it but I have to agree with Leadeater on this one, even if I did fix this I don't think I'd ever be able to trust it again and it is my one public facing server that hosts my website and a few other web services. I'm biting the bullet, calling it a loss and reinstalling.
  12. Yeah, found this command on stack overflow, unfortunately apt wants SUDO which I cannot give it. I'm backing up my apache confs and other important files ATM. This is going to be a fun day Edit - Well its a lesson learned anyway, I will never use relative pathing for anything important again, its absolute all the way.
  13. I'm 99% sure I will have to do a full reinstall here but just in case someone knows something I don't.... I was up mega late last night trying to get my webserver to allow directory/file listing on a single folder (with it disabled globally) using a per folder override, because it was like 2am I missed a totally obvious mistake that I hadn't chown'd and chmodded the the files after I moved them over from my Windows PC. I woke up very early (05:30) and literally the first thought was "a'ha, I didn't set permissions" so off I go to change them... So after chan
  14. Once you've enabled HDR in Windows a new option appears, it says something like "Adjust Windows HDR Brightness Settings". If you click that you can adjust the brightness and contrast between SDR & HDR. If the HDR option is showing in Windows then HDR is working, if the cable was unsupported that option wouldn't be there at all.
