Re: Any thoughts on CineRAID SYSTEMS CR-H408

if you have enough spare parts or system, see if you have a board with enough SATA ports and setup FreeNAS. Its based on FreeBSD, and uses ZFS to make drive pools with parity. No RAID card needed, it can be picky about HBA controllers if you wanted to pick up a controller card to run more drives tha...

Re: CoolerMaster V8 GTS

being legacy doubt Cooler Master will have anything laying around.

Its a odd fan being round, LED, and Low profile (20mm).

I had an OG V8 cooler until about a month ago (moving purge, didn't even realize I had the thing lol), but the fans for that are not the same as the GTS.

Re: Gone Viral?

I should get the $1200, what I don't qualify for is the forced 2 weeks full pay by employer for not being able to work or the modified FMLA that kicks in after that 2 weeks.

If I choose not to work I have to use PTO.

Me too. Have my "papers" so I can get to work. Since my work is considered "essential" we don't qualify for that reimbursement from the government. We build and support heavy equipment for local, state, and federal divisions like State D.O.T.'s and Army Corps of Engineers. So we stay open to support...

Fully expecting my son's high school graduation to be canceled. Its scheduled for May 10. Most schools around us have switched to e-learning until April 24th, for now mine are scheduled back on the 6th, betting it gets extended like the others.

I actively HATE RGB and full temper glass cases... that being said. I would throw the Fractal Design R6 USB-C in the ring as an option. Has 1 external 5.25 bay, and more importantly, a clean no glass option. https://www.newegg.com/black-fractal-design-define-r6-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811352091?review...

If you have some old lower power sucking system, could build yourself a PFSense box.

Re: switch vs router help

Going straight off the modem or the router, the switch would just extend the ports. Without the router in place, everything it basically talking straight to the modem. The upside to having the router in place is the better flexibility of controlling flow and watching devices on your network. If your...

Re: Who got a 3990X?

I just built a new VM server with a 2700 for home lab. This new gen has made the price drop nice. Wish I had the coin to go the threadripper route. The 2700 build hurt enough... frig'n RAM cost.. but, sips power compared to retired enterprise stuff... **** ton quieter too lol.

Until opensource brings something to the table that will go toe-to-toe with Outlook, there are loads that will not move away from Office.

Re: Win7/8 free upgrade to Win10

I have done several of these updates. I found that if you have Office 2010 installed the inplace upgrade will fail every time. Even if you uninstall it. So if they have Office 2010, back it all up (should do that anyway). Use a key sniffer to get the Windows and Office keys, nuke the drive, and clea...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

rafts can be nice, I try using whats called "brim" or a "skirt" first. Less plastic used. Sometimes the raft can be a complete pain to get the part off of. Good about the board. The trick part of print times is finding the balance of speed and print resolution. I print most if not all my parts at .2...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

Yeah, don't even think of using Flexible's on a bowden setup. There are people that run dedicated setups just for it due to the needs to print the stuff. As for the bowden tube not set against the nozzle. heat up everything, take the nozzle off and coupling. Shove the tube through the heat break to ...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

So it was before the bowden.. pure guess, but I would say the PLA was brittle or had a nic/score in it, that caused it to break, and the end started to curl between the feed tube and the drive gear. If you still have the filament that was left in the bowden look at what would have been the extruder ...

I would get access to the firmware. Need that to turn on features like Thermal Runaway Protection and add things like the BL Touch. TH3D sells a kit for $16, here is their "how to" for the boards with 1284p chipset. https://www.th3dstudio.com/knowledgebase/1284p-printer-bootloader-flashing-video-gui...

Re: I got a 3d printer - Creality Ender 5

Now you understand what I was saying how different brands/colors print different. The new brand may like a slightly lower print temp if its oozing that much. Priming can be fixed a coupe ways. Set there, preheat, then use control box to manually feed some filament, then as you move over to start the...
