    If you want black Noctua fans, get the LTT edition, the PPC Industrial or Redux models.
    Don't break $30 fans because you don't like their colour

    Elfuego got a reaction from Kyndros in New System - 980ti + i7 6700k : Is A 520W Platinum PSU Dangerous?   
    Google PSU Tier List;
    Personally I tend to use Corsairs HXi/AXi because of Corsairs support - (the less faff is worth it to me) but EVGA do some beastly value PSUs - Ive used plenty of EVGAs PSUs (T1/t2) and they are all fine.
     
    PPS: I cant heat my HXI over my Noctua Industrials @ 20% (mind you those things are like 38db at 20% lol)

    In the words of @Slick : its probably fine, but Id get an 850W one so it runs at less fan speed and is at a better part of its efficiency curve, plus it will give you some headroom .

    Elfuego got a reaction from SaladFingers in 6core/8core skylake   
    Broadwell-E should be Q1, 2016 with 6/8 core variants (i7, 22 core Xeons)
    Skylake-E should be Q3, with 8/10 and possibly a 12 core variant (i7, Xeons are rumoured to be 28core)
     
    Also we will be getting Kaby Lake on the mainstream platofrm (Skylake Refresh), in Q2

    Elfuego got a reaction from EChondo in Building a Nas Server.   
    I run a home server with 2K12 and a couple of FreeNAS boxes. I also have a "test" server with Win Server 2016 TP3.
     
    Firstly, I havent found a huge benefit to actually getting server grade components unless you want the cores.
     
    I have a Xeon X5660*2 Server and aside from 1 use case; it is not any better/worse than my micro test server and nas running an H81 Board, 8GB Ram and A Dual Core Haswell Pentium. Obviously you will sacrifice ECC ram on the consumer grade platforms but honestly with a proper backup strategy I doubt you will have any issues. (Assuming you are running parity raid).
     
    Case wise just pick something that has enough space for drives and any other bits you want. (I use my Xeon Server as a transcode box for Streaming video from my FreeNAS Boxes), so I benefit from CUDA. Unless you have a very large budget avoid rackmount stuff; its very expensive for what it offers.
     
    Even the dual core box was able to handle transcoding a 1080P stream using plex without any real issues. its only real issues were to do with transcoding a large queue of files to mobile devices (BUT was still good enough for a single or even 2 streams in real time) - Where it was lacking was the few times when I had to get something transcided very quickly while away from home on a poor internet connection.
     
    The only thing I would say don't skimp on is a raid controller card.

    Never underestimate denied access as a Motivator.. When at school one of the deputies introduced a whole bunch of measures to to try and block everything. It usually took me at most a day (or 2) to override whatever system he put in place that week (not because I was that fussed about playing games, or not having my PC remote controlled, but just because). Many people were asking me how to override it so they could game.
