  1. Here’s the pics. For whatever reason I confused the inlet/outlet so I have to swap those two. Already had the liquid in, so just decided to do the leak test for the “other”.
  2. Hi all, doing my first hard tubing loop and decided to run pure distilled water for a leak test. Leak test ran fine and now I wanna get the distilled water out so I can put in the real coolant. Issue is though, I cannot seem to drain the loop somehow.. Case is a phanteks evolv x and I am using a Kinetic flt 120mm res/pump combo which sits in the bottom front. Only water that came out was from the res itself, from the loop, nothing is coming out. looked at the manual but there’s no notes about draining. Used to run separate res and pump before, draining
  3. Dell might very well not have the option in their bios. If you are lucky they might have a tool where you can export the bios configuration to an xml, change the setting and import it again.
  4. Just don’t forget that HP servers are known to speed up the fans if non-hp-approved pcie devices are plugged into the system. regardless, that system will also use some juice, wouldn’t it be better to look for a 2600K or 3770K system? These should be pretty cheap these days..
  5. pfSense would be able to do what you need. Both load-balancing and failover as such.
  6. In regards to going 12Gbps, just make sure that you actually do get SAS 12Gbps SSDs.... It doesn't make too much sense spending the money on a 12Gbps backplane and controller if you will be using 6Gbps end-devices. Intels DataCenter SSDs are among the most robust and popular, but afaik, they only make SATA-based SSD's, not SAS. So that would mean that these would run on 6Gbps. And we all know that HDDs can't reach anything near of even 3Gbps speeds... If you go the HDD route, make sure to get a controller with a decent battery-backed flash-cache. Otherwise your 4K IOps will be pret
  7. Unless there is a specific and valid use-case for the setup, I would recommend running the games locally as well.
  8. Look at the title of this topic, the guy is asking how this is possible, I am giving an answer to that question. I’ve never experienced any performance tanking to 0 through iSCSI... it mostly rather comes down to the configuration and hardware. in addition many games don’t even support being run over SMB. You circumvent this with iSCSI because windows sees it as a logical device. One use-case I had for this was to host the games for my home on 3 pc’s. We had 1tb of games but instead of using 1tb on each pc we managed to clone the zvols of the original gaming-partition a
  9. Are you using active or passive mode? With passive mode you need to have an wxtra range of dynamic ports forwarded as well.
  10. WSUS is a bit of work for such small network. It would probably be easier to just get a http proxy like squid which could cache the contents.
  11. Why would you add an extra overhead like SMB? iSCSI has a much lower overhead and has much better compatibility between unix and windows. And even for large games, the iSCSI method worked flawlessly for me. I played far cry, gta v and cities skylines mostly. maybe the games are big but the data loded per second is not that much. For my case, it was small enough to reside in the ARC (ram-based read cache on zfs) almost the entire time. So basically, not much was ever read from the actual HDD’s... only the first time, loading it into the ARC.
  12. FreeNAS (and ZFS) you could technically make it work with a striped 1TB mirror and 320GB mirror. Scaling would be pretty bad though. If I were you, I would try to get an extra 2TB and get rid of all the other drives. Then make a pool of a single mirror with the 2tb drives. Then create a zvol and present that as a logical device to your pc. Make sure to use wired networking with a transfer rate of at least 1Gbps!
  13. If it’s a 660, it’s not DDR4. i’ve run games over the network before and it was pretty damn fast! You just gotta use the right setup, then it will work pretty well. i used FreeNAS (still am for other stuff) and it has a iSCSI target service as well. What size drives do you have?
  14. Since you have Active Directory, I would recommend Kerio (if money is a problem), or Exchange Online through Office365. it doesn’t really matter though what you use, many employees are stupid enough to put a label with their password on the pc somewhere. I would strongly suggest, whatever you choose, to implement 2FA.
  15. You only need TCP 32400 forwarded. What plex server version do you run?
