    Looking for a new quality keyboard and keyboard protection

    you can go for the Corsair K68, its "splashproof" thanks to the rubber gasket surrounding the keyswitch so you can just pour water over it, if the keyboard gets dusty its matte plastic too, so any dust and grime wont stand out too much

    Post your CrystalDiskMark speeds

    important stuff are triple backed with RAID 1 and another drive that RAID 0 array is just for steam games and nothing else so if that array is lost, i can always redownload the games and reinstalled it being it is an enterprise drive, im not really scared of it failing too soon

    Post your CrystalDiskMark speeds

    the SSD is on not on an array, the 15k HDD is i say its quite a big improvement that RAID 0 array is only for games, and i have a backup 2TB drive with RAID 1 for important stuff

    How long does your pc take to boot to windows?

    my laptop takes about 30 seconds until desktop, my PC takes between 3-4 minutes, because the LSI card takes a while to boot

    Is Raid 0 worth it?

    im using RAID 0 on my home PC, but its hooked up to an LSI 8i controller, and its a 600GB 15k SAS drives, the only upside is the read/write speed which scrapes a single SATA3 SSD. load times are also quite fast with this setup but i dont suggest building RAID 0 for any important data, one...

    Fractal Design Define R6

    a very good improvement from an amazing case, good airflow (for a silent oriented case), dust filter for all fan mounts, and the flexibility. if its really up to 10x3.5" drives, i might switch to the R6 next year. tempered glass is a nice addition too

    Anyone have experience with infiniband?

    im pretty sure infiniband cables are pre-made in factory, dunno if you can open it up and re-crimp it to the length you want, i think you'd better using teamed 10GbE for 20Gb of bandwidth because infiniband is not something like ethernet, its a completely different protocol altogether

    Mass Torrent Server Build

    i can assure you most server hardware last a very long time, i have a IBM x3650 which is still running strong, and i've seen Compaq proliants dating back to 2003 still going strong today. so if you want longetivity and good upgradeability, get used Nehalem based server hardware. the...

    Which of these 3 fans is best ?

    i do read the reviews, and no im not biased, of course there are plenty of cases out there that has more airflow than the R5. my ambient are around 26-27C all year long, my GPU and CPU hovers around 65 and 60 respectively at full load, with all those drives obstructions up front. so for a...

    Which of these 3 fans is best ?

    I have that case, and i can say, it has outstanding cooling options, lots of fan mounts, the door has ample vents on the side to help with airflow, and its very silent too. i have a 15k SAS drive in there, and the drive while spinning never gets above 50C, that shows the amazing airflow this...

I have 7HDD inside the drive cage, and my SAS card or my GPU...

    How Many of You Moving to Coffee Lake from Skylake?

    if coffee lake is usable with Z170 motherboard, i'm likely change it to 8700k or some sort, if its not, i might rethink about it. its a real PITA to swap motherboards when you have lots of SATA and SAS cables dangling around
