  3. Good, cause one of my 2TB drives went ti.... Belly up. I suddenly found myself with a 500GB nVME and a single 2TB drive. Need moar. The old drive was an ST2000DM001. Junk. Decent spec though, 7200rpm, 64mb cache. Looking forward to 256mb cache! Wish I could afford a couple 2TB nVME drives, gen 4. 5000Mbps+

  5. My first custom build. You know that foam that came with some motherboards? The softer stuff behind the PCB, plyable? I installed it with the motherboard. Also didn't use screw sets. couldn't figure out why it wouldn't POST. Guess the foam wasn't exactly blocking all shorts. Luckily when I removed the foam, and used the screw sets, everything worked just fine. IDIOT
  6. That's all I need!
  7. No, that's a good suggestion. I plan to keep improving this, it's quite a project. Unfortunately I don't have as much free time as I'd like, and I can't dedicate 100% of it to this, but I'll be working on it!
  8. No way we can utilize that kind of resolution in the near future, but there's hope, at least, for some major improvement. Me like.
  9. Pook holy hell. I've been trying to word what has been going on, I thought it was a glitch. Holy crap it's a freaking feature? I feel like such a moron. ITS BEEN SO MANY YESRS ARGGGGHHHHH I love u
  10. Added a couple. Let me know if you guys have any questions about any of these. I will work on importing more over the weekend.
  11. So, I'm attempting to get notifications for Ryzen 5000 chips. I want the 5900x for myself. I'm trying these methods. Add item number to end of https://secure.newegg.com/NewMyAccount/AutoNotify.aspx?Submit=ADD&Item= Thus: https://secure.newegg.com/NewMyAccount/AutoNotify.aspx?Submit=ADD&Item=N82E16819113664 Curious: https://www.amazon.com/DANIPEW-Sand-Man-Cotton-Performance-T-Shirt/dp/B08164VTWH Also, if I see them I'll post here, and hopefully if someone else does they'll post too
  12. Still rocking my Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced. I would love to see a refresh of this case, maybe even upgrades to buy? The front panel ports come off easily, so come on Cooler Master, build me a USB 3.1 panel! USB-C, etc
  13. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/Power-Supply-Units-Advanced/RMx-Series/p/CP-9020180-NA Corsair RM850x. The most stable one of the series. Should be enough for what I'm building, likely even overkill.
  14. I'll be using this post to provide tips and tricks I've learned with PowerShell. I keep most of my stuff at work, so perhaps tomorrow I'll bring some content to this post after I scrub my scripts of anything specific to our organization. I'll start with a few simple ones. Yes, these can be done with other methods, such as .bat files, or python, what have you, but I use PowerShell, and it's what I know. I'll be writing descriptions below, scripts to follow. Feel free to request scripts! I enjoy doing this, and it's good for job security. I'll likely even be updating scripts on here as well, as
  15. Perhaps this could be better served as a post that lists distros, with a small description of their intended user base is, and a link to their website?
