  1. So I finally managed to get my 2 new Seagate 8TB drives configured as a RAID 1 array and got it formatted while on my Win10 setup. However, despite loading the rcraid-dkms module, Arch doesn’t seem to be appropriately recognizing the array. Any ideas on what might be going wrong/misconfigured? (Yes, yes, I know mdadm > on-board, but it needs to be accessible to both OSes in my dual-boot config, and VMs aren’t an option as I’d need a second GPU for PCIe passthrough)
  2. I seem to remember @LinusTechcomplaining about this fairly recently in a video (WAN show or another stream possibly?). Any comments from LMG staff on the subject? I imagine you guys with your 10M subs would have a bit more weight behind your recommendation to Microsoft to fix their shit compared with a nobody like me.
  3. Well GPOs and the registry are a bit different, but fair enough.
  4. Also, @dual290x saw that your profile said that you run Win10 Pro too. Is the "Disable Web Search" GPO bugged for you? 'cause I still get web results in the start menu despite enabling the damn things. I made a thread about it but it's just been gathering dust since I posted in September.
  5. I don't plan on swapping drives in and out all that often, but it's nice to have the ability to do so, and I do wanna keep one of them free in case I need to help someone out getting files off a disk they didn't back up despite my telling them to or some such scenario.
  6. Like 80-90C (The way its configured right now the 2 SSDs are in 1x3.5"->2x2.5" adapter, with the 2TB Black RE below them) Edit: also looking at HWinfo in Windows I'm not seeing that issue, might just be something screwy with psensor in Arch. Right now I'm in Windows to run the Clock Tuner util as soon as the CPU Work Unit for F@H finishes up.
  7. I most definitely will now that I've seen them Well I meant more from a convenience standpoint: re the drive sleds, but the cat fur & carpet & dust etc was another part of the reason to get it off the floor.
  8. Between living with 2 cats & having carpet on the floor, & the fact that I want to use the front drive sleds it's got, I've got it up on my desk rather than squirreled away like Linus has with his home rig in the server closet lol. The Arctic ones are a good suggestion. Really I just want something blacked out that's not too noisy. As far as the 80mm fans go, one of my SSDs that's in there currently is supposedly roasting according to its sensor (though that's probably partly due to the rat's nest of cables from the non-modular Antec TP-750 Blue in there), so I didn't want to leave any
  9. Yup! All the stuff that's been "purchased" was either a holdover from the FX-8350 system or from my upgrade back in May.
  10. Budget (including currency): ~$1500 Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: General purpose workstation Other details: Semi-recent upgrade (~6mo) to 3700X from FX-8350 in a kinda crap Corsair case with no front bays. There's a few things that aren't on here, mostly from Monoprice (a Mechanical KB, pseudo-KVM-USB, wired headphones, and a pair of desktop speakers to replace these 10+ year old Dell ones, SATA cables etc), but also a Blue Yeti Mic off Amazon.

  11. I inadvertently burned myself buying my last case (Corsair something) not even thinking to check that there were indeed front 5.25" bays available to use.
  12. Yeah, I only saw that this was up about when I commented, I only just got to the bit where he got around to mentioning the part about the giveaway.
  13. Kinda cool to see the case I use featured for a change, I'm used to seeing the fancier RGB cases with tempered glass and whatnot featured.
  14. Yeah, it was just a random thought that I'd had, I figured if it hadn't been done already there were probably reasons it hadn't been. Out of curiosity, how do ya have so many machines working on it, a homelab set-up I'm guessing? My "lab" consists of my "workstation" and a Pi4.
