    Tripplite Rackmount UPS Reviews

    Interesting. I hadn't seen they were acquired by Eaton. You'd think I would've noticed the big "By EATON" in their site logo, but I didn't lol. I wonder if their newer versions of the software moved away from the Java dependency. Looking through their requirements I don't see it specifically...

    Tripplite Rackmount UPS Reviews

    I've narrowed it down to a few models, but in this regard I just wanted to gauge more of a general feel for long term quality. I know that not a ton of people have really jumped on the Li-Ion wagon yet, so I don't expect too much long term evidence regarding those. The total order would be for...

    Tripplite Rackmount UPS Reviews

    In the process of getting ready to do a bulk replacement of my aging APC network UPS's with some newer Li-Ion models. Both Tripplite and APC have models with similar features/power capabilities and support network management/monitoring. My only problem is finding reviews on their rackmount...

    Intel Core i9-11900K

    Looks like MSRP on these is 613.99 based on Newegg/Microcenter. That's gonna be a no from me dog. Not sure if it's been asked, but is there anyway to adjust the price/performance metrics now that we know the retail cost?

    [FS][US] EK Reference 1080/1080Ti/Titan XP & 2080Ti Waterblocks

    Recently upgraded to a 3XXX's series GPU and can finally get rid of some old blocks. Both have been disassembled and cleaned with Dawn dish soap and a soft toothbrush. I then hooked them up to a test loop and cycled some distilled water through them for ~10 minutes. I'd still recommend using...

    [FS][US] Asus Maximus X Hero Wifi & 8700k Combo

    The 8700K has been de-lidded and had the stock TIM replaced with Conductonaut. IHS has NOT been reattached with any adhesive. It's held together via the socket bracket for ease of serviceability in the future. I've owned the chip for around 18 months with this setup and always used it under...

    Full Watercooled Fractal Era ITX

    The bracket is what the front IO mounts too. I suppose you could remove it (and lose your front IO) but with this case it wouldn't enable you to mount the PSU further forward. I've been toying with the idea of another 240mm passive radiator in the bottom of the case. Below the GPU space is...

    Full Watercooled Fractal Era ITX

    Thought I would share what I've been working on in quarantine. While not as impressive as the Dan A4 build below this, I really liked the look of this case but wasn't willing to compromise on cooling. I also really wanted to try out the Crosshair VIII x570 board which prevented me from using...
