  1. It was definitely the controller bracket.. Manufacturered slightly too wide. I've got some more pics to upload and some info to update soon. I like the new site! Still looking around but so far so good. Lots of long hours, great work!
  2. Mandatory I would say Yes that control panel is really nice.. I am surprised how much information you're able to get.
  3. Much better, now I can see all the pics I was missing Great job, looking nice!
  4. I really like those temperature controlled fans... I didn't know they were a thing. PS. The really long link isn't working for me.. Not sure what it is.. A picture? I don't see a pic in the message and when I click the link it looks like it is trying to display an image. Just me?
  5. Those steel toed boots are going to come in handy Congrats! Nice UPS
  6. I think it would end up being free at the consumer level but there could be some high costs to insurance companies. I read that there would be free clinics offered also but who knows.. it is certainly going to cost a lot to develop/test/distribute and we'll end up paying for it one way or another.
  7. You mentioned this rack is right on the side of your desk in your office. I wanted to make some comments/suggestions for your consideration. You have quite a few options with rack airflow. As the rack is configured right now, air can come in and out from any side it is basically an open design like leaving the side panels off your case. In this configuration creating negative pressure/directing air intake/exhaust isn't really possible (but is it even needed?). You may not need to do anything and just let the individual components cool themselves. I guess filters could help in this use ca
  8. Come to find out that controller had a flaw in the manufacturing. It would not physically fit into the slot I even tried bending it (the old tricks) and it was simply not manufactured correctly. I had to remove the bracket and mount it inside the case instead... I wasn't happy about it (and now I cannot control it without opening the case) but it does work well.
  9. Subbed Nice Rack! ; ) Looks like, has some nice depth to it (full size it looks like). Good choice for sure. Mine only accepts a 19" depth (cannot use rails) so I've been restricted in quite a few ways. Looks like a nice project for the weekend, look forward to some updates. Is it on wheels?
  10. I haven't had a real lot of time to play around with the details of Plex I'm still discovering things. My old Plex server was not used much and was more of a test since I built it as a VM and in addition I now have the Plex pass so I have unlocked new features and options. I loaded all of my media, 3.29TB at this point. I am likely going to re-structure a lot of the media from the perspective of how I would want to see it within the Plex app as opposed to how I stored them on my file server. I need to fix a lot of posters and things of that nature but overall I'm really impressed with the deta
  11. Sorry for the delay, someone tripped on the power plug again <lol> Yes they have both Molex and Sata... they will take a while to arrive. It is what it is... I liked it a lot also because I could control it without opening the case. Those SilentTyphoons are some nice fans also. I have a few noiseblocker fans that I think are similar but overall I tend to turn the fans all the way up and I just block out the fan noise.. it is not even there anymore . https://www.ebay.com/itm/SATA-Power-....c100008.m2219 https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-Pins-Powe...72.m2749.l2649
  12. They are brave (in a scarcastic way) that's for sure. These kind of bully tactics make me want to walk the other way as I don't wish to support companies that do this. I personally wouldn't mind AT ALL if Apple went by the way of the Dodo bird, Packard Bell and New Coke.... I personally (not trying to spark debate here) have had nothing but problems with (several generations) iPhones...update after update... I'm really losing sight of what makes being an Apple customer attractive these days anyway. Today, it certainly isn't the "refined" experience they originally became famous for by any stre
  13. Gotcha... you also reminded me that my main PC was still @ 100 strap. I had forgotten to put it back. 4.5Ghz all cores 8/16, back to 125 bus now . Thanks for those screenshots, that was awesome seeing all of the different generations and how they have progressed. Threadrippers are beasts! Ya my Plex server's airflow is a bit congested right now.. it's not smooth and there's a big pocket of heat build up. The air that does come out of the rear fans is hotter than expected telling me that heat is being concentrated. All of the air comes straight into the front of the server and proceeds to
  14. Awesome info! I have (2) other ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboards (x79 also) and the BIOS is very similar so I am assuming that most techniques translate right over also (like Digi settings). I am assuming the RAM that I am using is not going to overclock well but I hope I can at least run @ 125Mhz strap. Agree about being conservative with the O/C applied in thie config. I shouldn't really need to push FSB because the I/O is already incredibly overkill for the task but the single core speed is something I think I would appreciate. There is the memory write bug that may also affect thi
