    Completed Phanteks Shift (Dark Matter)

    One thing I find interesting about the riser is you can change the orientation of the GPU to have it either face up or down depending on what configuration works best. I thought that was some slick thinking in the design for sure. I've got a 4th gen intel board kicking around I'm going to put in...

    Completed Phanteks Shift (Dark Matter)

    It is a really cool case. I bought one a few months back that I've been meaning to build a system into but haven't got around to yet. There are a few bits I wish were maybe better quality on it, some of the plastic bits feel a bit cheap. Cool build though

    Work in progress Custom RGB controller using Arduino

    Ok, so some progress is being made. And there's a few changes to the PCB design due to things I cocked up slightly, and some of the pin selection for certain connections to the Arduino since there's a couple designed interrupt pins that are best suited for buttons, and there's a few specific for...

    HP DL380 Gen8 Server?

    yeah I looked at Ebay too and there's quite a range in pricing. Like JD pointed up, some are pretty up there, with drives, which I don't have to offer, and supaflyx3's statement from earlier saying 500-600 is actually inline with what I kind of had in mind. I've seen some for 200-300 on ebay but...

    Work in progress Custom RGB controller using Arduino

    So my breadboards and jumper wires and other goodies came in today which was a nice surprise as I was expecting them on Monday..... I put everything on a breadboard, and at first I noticed that the Arduino wasn't powering on. I started reading this page...

    Google sheets woes

    I'll take your beer but I can't say I have much help to offer. I use google sheers for shopping lists lol. Last time I tried to use it for something big, I murdered it with 40 million rows of data. My thinking was that rather than grinding that away in excel on my workstation I'd let someone...

    HP DL380 Gen8 Server?

    They're 2.5" drives. there's 8 bays on the front. Only one tray. I'm assuming those are SSF I should probably note, I don't think the ram is all genuine HP. I'd have to pop the cover and check what's what for all the ram sticks in it. I still haven't taken the time to reset ILO to defaults yet...

    HP DL380 Gen8 Server?

    Yeah, I have no intend on shipping it, will be a local sale, and I'll likely sit on it until current events come to pass. I'm not bleeding out for cash right now anyway. But was curious to get a gauge of what it's worth.

    HP DL380 Gen8 Server?

    I have an HP DL380 Gen8 server (2U rackmount) I'm looking to sell but I'm not sure what it's worth? I'd been using it as a file server and finally got around to downgrading to something more reasonable for a file server which is why I'm looking to sell. It has the following Dual Xeon E5-2670...

    Work in progress Custom RGB controller using Arduino

    I went with the Arduino for a couple reasons, mainly because I work with a few guys who are familiar with them, but there's also a library to use it as a lighting node with Corsairs iCue which I don't entirely intend on using, but I liked having the extra option for flexibility, especially if I...

    Work in progress Custom RGB controller using Arduino

    Hey guys, I figured I'd share a project I've been working on for my new Lian Li 011D XL build. It's inspired by some frustration with the lack of any kind of standard when it comes to rgb lighting components available in the PC market right now. I wanted to put some lighting in my new build...

    X79 board, cpu, ram combo

    Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking. Hardly worth selling, I may as well just keep it and use it for something else given it's monetary value

    Push/Pull Fan configuration

    Maybe I'm spoiled with the number of temp sensors and fan headers on my sabertooth boards? The software itself is a bit quirky in ways but for tuning fan curves based on their positions and heatzones is something I've grown used to as it's quite powerful I find. I'm pretty sure the settings get...

    X79 board, cpu, ram combo

    I've got an Asus Sabertooth X79, Intel i7 3930K and 4x8Gb Kingstron HyperX DDR3 (1866mhz pretty sure) kicking around that I'm not using at the moment, and have been keeping aside to setup a desktop for the "wife" when we move in together in the coming months, but I recently acquired a Gigabyte...
