  1. Okay, so ist Turns Out 4 of the 6 cpu-controlled SATA Ports in the Board are ready, Looks Like a HBA ist the only way to Go... Any suggestions?
  2. Dayum... Okay that's... very, very low. So a Pentium G4500T or G4400T would fit with my Mobo, from what Intel's Site tells me...
  3. Alright... Can't use the PSU in my current System because it's as big as my current case haha. You're definitely right with the power draw though, it'll probably cost me more in the long run to run that System than getting a more power-efficient cpu now. Hm So what would you suggest? Getting a Pentium, and what else? I don't need the GPU either, I'd imagine? Any other tips?
  4. Thanks for the quick response! So simply using the headers on the Mainboard for Drives would be enough you think? What about expansion? It's got six headers, and I'm not sure if FreeNas can use the other ports (NVME for example) if I wanted to add storage...
  5. Time for a bit of an Update, and anyone seeing this because they want to buy a case, or want to get more info on it. --- I've been using the Louqe for two Years now, and I'm still very much happy with it. It's travelled with me on planes about 6 times now, and I'm loving how small it is as much as ever! If you want to take your PC with you, make sure you put it into your suitcase with some sort of padding. A good thought when putting it in is - would it survive, if I dropped the suticase with the PC in it1 meter (or 3 feet)? If you'Re confident that it'll take that, you should b
  6. Hello y'all, I'm sure this has been asked before, but I wanted to get an opinion on the build I was thinking about here, and hopefully some tips, because I've never done this before. I'm thinking about converting my old Gaming Computer into a NAS, since I have no other use for it, and I wouldn't get my money by selling it (See specs below), so I've kept it until now. Since I've got a Computer just sitting around, that could also accept more Storage in the future, I want to give this a try at least, before buying a Synology NAS which would cost me more money, and which would
  7. You can try that. Maybe the two versions are just not compatible at all (which would suck) but keep trying!
  8. There's a psu on the website... Here: https://hdplex.com/hdplex-400w-hi-fi-dc-atx-power-supply-16v-24v-wide-range-voltage-input.html
  9. Uhm... I was talking about SFX psu's (which should fit into most cases), mine has 600 Watts... I run an i7 8086k overclocked,980ti and I'm fine... Here's an article about SFX psu's... Everything from 450 to 650 https://graphicscardhub.com/sfx-psu-power-supply/
  10. Question is, if your RGB header is adressable, and if the fan has adressable LEDs. I had the same problem with my fans, until I figured out that my MoBo had an adressable header, and my fans weren't adressable. Bought a Coolermaster RGB controller, and everything has worked flawlessly ever since. So look at how many pins the header has, how many the fan RGB header has, if they are both 3 or 4-pins, it has to do with the software. Update all the drivers, and maybe re-isntall the software.
  11. [redundant] I didn't buy any NZXT fans (not a fan of the looks honestly), but I can strongly recommend EK's Vardar fans. They push a ton of air, and have RGB (if you go for that option). Just keep in mind that those are not adressable. (I have the EK fans in both a Corsair 900d, and a Louqe Ghost S1. Similar performance in both cases.)
  12. Looks like it has everything for a normal system; Qestion is, why use one of those PUS's if you can use a sff power supply? Are you doing a crazy tiny build?
  13. I'm looking for a used GTX 1080ti to upgrade from my 980ti. RTX is too expensive for me, but I want some better performance in Games and for Work. I've found anything from $480 to $600+ on eBay, for various models, everything from Reference coolers to Watercooled cards. Since my build is a super tiny ITX build in a Louqe Ghost S1, I can't go any bigger than reference board size. I already have massive issues with the 980ti, and had to bend some cables to unhealthy degrees. Thanks in advance!
  14. Honestly Windows. Better file System, better environment for troubleshooting and less restrictions.
