How is your home server shaping up Blue?

I haven't seen you post on Reddit Homelab or Datahorder lately

YeeYee, awesome. What fans and cooling solution you putting in?

I'm buying a 3800X or 3900X this weekend. Already ordered the block from PerformancePCs, man their site still blows. I really miss Frozen CPU.

I haven't decided on a MOBO yet. Good God they are all fckking goofy.

Edt: Also the 3800X was on sale and cheaper than the 3700 last week on NewEgg and Amazon.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Are there any decent ITX cases that would fit my 2080 and a full size 1200w PSU? I want to put my PC and my NUC-like PCs in a cabinet under the desk to help keep all the cable clutter in one place

Looks like the thermaltake core x1 might be the only one, but it looks pretty damn big for an itx case

I have a 1200W PSU, they are usually "longer".

I'm not up to date with what cases are out there anymore, but one would think not. It's one reason why Seasonic spear headed efforts for the SFX standard.

I also want to "down size", but I have these huge RADs.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
I didn't want to have to go diving in on buying all new parts since I already have an Z370 ITX mobo.

I guess I already have a 450w SFX PSU too I forgot about

AMD big Navi passes certification, sounds like we're going to see it March 5th.

I'm going to guess $700/600/500 for the the 3 new cards. Decent chance at $800 for the top end IMO.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Supposedly 35% faster than 2080ti.

So probably 3080 non ti? Or in between 3080 and ti.


I'm not buying until the new monitors drop though, dumb to buy a 4K card until my 4K monitor releases and that isn't until 2H of this year for the LG 4K 144Hz Mini-LED.

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Think I'm going to go with this Lian Li ITX case since it'll be pretty much plug n play with all my current parts.

Probably gonna test my luck and run with my 450w SFX PSU in this build since that's the only SFX PSU I have

Why can't Corning just hurry up with an optical TB3 cable? I want to move my whole setup to the closet and get rid of all the clutter

The Silverstone RVZ02 and ML08B are both passively cooled. With the R5 3600 I was thinking of going with either the low profile Noctua L9i (AM4) version or the Big Shruyken 2.

For the GPU, I was thinking of actually going with a GTX 2070 Super from EVGA.

I've been researching R/SFF for ideas and double checking the Dimensions out of everything to make sure parts all fit.

Have you looked at the Fractal Node 202? I love mine, and fits nearly any graphics card. I don't have any HDDs in mine, just a single 1tb m.2 drive, so building in it was a breeze

Noctua L9i 

I have 4-5 of these coolers, love them in everything but when trying to use in a gaming iTX/SFF builds.

Its very limited. Can get pretty loud at times, but that is just the SFF life.

I love the simple look of the 202 too. Looks nice in my entertainment center.

Basically has a simple look of a console

Remember TekSyndicate fckking Wendell a few years back?

Look at their "pilot" episode. They throw shots.

YouTube: Level1Tech - Hello World

Wendell has always been a God on Earth. Remember for years he would hide behind monitors to not show face?

Ryan is fckking hilarious every show, if you love realist dry humor.

Krista is a kind heart, she has grown on my a ton.

Support L1Tech!

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
Yep, I have. Honestly can’t go wrong with either the 202 or the ML08B/RVZ02. Really my top 2 choices.

I do like the look of the Silverstone slightly better but that’s just personal preference
