  1. I have now tried updating the BIOS as suggested by TheCakeIsNaOH over on level1techs forum. Sadly this didn’t fix it, the system is still stuck with the fans pinned at 100% but with no post, no screen output and no error beeps.
  2. So i have the strangest problem. I bought a Supermicro mobo (X8DTN+) for my nas with dual Xeon X5670 cpu's and 12x2Gb ECC reg. ram from Samsung/Hynix @1333MHz preinstalled. Before i first booted it i installed new thermal compound and inspected the sockets for damage. After i reinstalled the cpu's and applied new thermal compound i booted the machine and it worked fine. I also bought 6x4Gb Nanya 1333MHz ECC reg. ram which also worked as expected. A month later i bought a different Supermicro mobo (X8DTN+-F) with dual Xeon E5620 cpu's and 18x4Gb ECC reg. ram from Hynix @1333MHz preins
  3. So my Synology DS 218play died on me last week. Fortunately i was able take one of the drives out of it to copy all data to it so i still have a backup (i even mirrored it to the other drive i had in the Synology nas). Both drives survived. But now i need a new nas and because i was not really happy with the feature set of the Synology box anyway. I have an old Lenovo ThinkStation C20 lying around that i intend to use for my diy nas. The specs for the Thinkstation are as follows: CPU: Xeon W3550 Ram: 6Gb DDR3 GPU: Dell Radeon HD 6350 Psu: 625W I

  6. Hi Guys, (be advised im not a native speaker, im from germany, so if i get some things wrong please excuse me, so anyway:) so i want to do a few things with my home network but because i dont have any experience with networking i need some help. First of all i attached a shitty paint drawing of my current setup (in the green boxes) and my attempt of trying to come up with at least anything that might work for what im trying to achieve. To give a short explanation of said drawing: on the left top is my main rig which is connected to my switch in the same room via LAN 1Gbps. Thi
  7. So i did go with the sonys and thnks too all answers guys
  8. Sorry that i didn't put it right because i was trying to say that i want to get away from my CURRENT pair of standard accessorie sony iems from my last phone. So i wasn't hating about all iems and i know that there are very good ones out there, i even considered buying the jaybird x2, but i just dont want iems in general anymore because i personally prefer on ears.
  9. Srsly ? They do look good but the m40x which @Dackzy suggested do seem better even though they cost 20€ more Sennheisers are too expensive so sorry Im not shure about the creatives but the m40x are pretty decent although i wonder if the m50(x?) are worth the extra 50€ which would bring me 30€ over my budget but i would consider it if they rwally are worth it. And no iems please im trying to get away from my cheap ass iems thats why i posted here at all
  10. I just love the new Blade and it would be such a big relief not having to carry my big old heavy desktop to my friends lan parties anymore ?
