    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

    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

    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...

    Push/Pull Fan configuration

    This is more for curiosity at the moment, but I'm just wondering, for those here with watercooling setups and push/pull configurations on each side of the rad. is there any value in controlling the fan speed on each side separately? I'm thinking the pull side doesn't need to pull as much...

    Looking for case suggestions

    Some may have seen the recent build in the projects forum I did in a Lian Li PC-Q10WX mitx box, but anyway, it gave me the water cooling cooling itch and unless I can talk someone into paying for me to build a system with a custom loop for them, I can't really afford to break the bank on a whole...

    Completed Lian Li PC-Q10WX (mitx watercooled) build

    A friend of mine asked me a couple years ago to build him a new gaming rig. Not that he can't do it himself but my cable management skills are far superior, and he knows I like a project once in a while. He really liked his last build in the FD Node 804 and said he wanted something similar. So...

    Anyone have anything against Koolance pumps?

    Some may have seen my previous recent thread, but I'm working on an SFF water cooled build. I'm leaning toward a tube res with pump, but height is an issue. I have 14cm between the graphics card and the top rad, so I need something to fit within that height profile (she tight). I'd like...

    Single 120mm rad enough for a GTX 2070?

    A friend of mine has me building him a new gaming rig. Technically it started a couple years ago when we picked up the chassis but it went on hold for a while but now he's back at it and dedicated to building it. I told him to just give me money and I'll build him something special. Back when we...

    Want to Sell Laing D5 Strong waterpump

    I have a Laing D5T Strong waterpump for sale. I purchased it from Dazmode last year when I set up my loop. I just replaced it with a different pump as this one had a little too much power for my need and I ended up with some cavitation as someone called it. It's in working order or I wouldn't...

    Supermicro board and Dual Xeon 5670s

    I have a SuperMicro X8DT3-F board with a pair of Xeon 5670's (6 core HT 2.93ghz) that I'm replacing with something a couple gen's newer so I can add more ram since this board is limiting me to 192gb. Pair of Intel STS100C heatsinks included I have a spare X8DTi-F board to go with it. They're...

    90* PCI-e Power adapters?

    My manager contracted me out to build his new rig. Maybe it's not really a contract, but he gave me money so I'm delivering magic. Anyway, we opted for an SFF build in a Silverstone RVZ01, but I've run into a snag fitting a GTX 1070 card in there. Literally, the amount that the wires stick out...

    Want to Buy CPU and RAM, SSD?

    Hey Guys, One of my friends kids is looking to upgrade his system that I gave him years ago now. Unfortunately, there's not much money to invest, so he's looking for as close to free as possible (I know right?). Anyway, I've got a socket 775 board that takes 2 sticks of DDR3 so I'm thinking...

    FD Celsius S24

    I posted another thread recently about a PSU inquiry for a build I'm doing for a friend. But anyway, I was going to try an sandwich in a Corsair h100i but having seen the recent review about the fractal design AIO, I'm thinking the S24 might be a better option. We were going to do 2 closed...

    Corsair SF600 for Kaby lake + gtx 1080?

    So my friend has been getting the itch to build a new system after watching my water cooling project on mine currently. He wants something small and compact, so I spec'd something out in the Lian Li PC-Q10 chassis. Now I'm pretty sure we can fit a "hybrid" GTX 1080 in there mounting the...

    To upgrade, or not to upgrade to faster DDR4

    So it's occurred to me that my 32gb quad channel DDR4 kit is only 2133mhz, and since the watercooling I'm adding currently is going to block my access to some of my ram, so I'm asking the question, should I upgrade to faster RAM now, or just leave it because quad channel DDR4 at any speed is...

    Completed Arc Midi / X99 Watercooled build

    I figured I'd start a thread for my watercooled build/rebuild I'm in the process of doing. Thanks to the guys who provided feedback in the watercooling section of the board as its definitely helped with ideas, and I'm sure plenty of info will come to use as I go along here. If anyone wants to...

    Does this layout make sense?

    So I'm trying to at least sort of plan out my loop. I'm still waiting for gpu blocks though, but i've taken some rough measurements of my case, the FD Arc Midi R2 which seems like it's going to be tight in some spots, like having to remove the stock hard drive cages to fit the pump/res, and then...

    SLI loop, serial or parallel

    So I've got most of my WC gear that showed up from Dazmode. but i'm still waiting on the GPU blocks from EK since the pair was on sale for 100USD off the regular price. My blocks aren't compatible with the terminals so i get to join these up old school i guess So I was orginally going to go...

    Canada computers is going on my do not deal with list

    I'm not usually one to complain, but I just dropped 1750$CAD this past Saturday at Canada Computers on a pair of EVGA GTX 1080 cards (not the Ti, sad face), and they have a note on the page as expected regarding nVidia's current game bundle promotion with the following mesage: Now, it occurs...
