    That thing's freakish looking. I mean in a cool way. I hardly even recognise it as a computer.

    Just ordered a 1tb NVME ssd to upgrade the 500Gb sata, should be a nice jump and a new 200mm fan to finish the gengar build.

    Overclocked an R9 270X and 2500k i've been playing around with. Who knew the R9 270X can still do 2k gaming so well for such an old card (it's a 4Gb version).

    Plays Crysis 3 and GTA V on decent FPS while looking amazing. Super impressed.

    Although, it's not the best clocker, didn't get the 1200 clock and 1500 memory I was hoping for :(

    Me neither. I didn't bother trying too much on my R9 290X as it's hot as HELLLLLLLLLLL.

    It warms the CPU up lol

    Added some aliexpress barrow QDC's. Tube runs are a little messy but i wanted to just get them all in to make sure they didn't leak, plus they are easily replaceable now i guess :p

    I was originally going to run a pair off the side rad rather than the cpu but they require a decent grip to connect/disconnect so not enough space beside the top rad to get my fingers around. Ran a very quick stress test and no difference in temps - dual d5 probably helps a bunch.

    I do and I did.

    A few points changed my mind
    • It will probably take between 24-48 hrs to rebuild. While annoying, that is not an impossible wait for a home server. I won't have a disk ready to go, so it will take a day to week to buy a replacement. The rebuild itself isn't a huge issue in terms of solving problems.
    • During that time the data is still accessible, and you should probably look at getting really important stuff off, and of course, you have backups right?!
    • Depending on how old the server is, you might just decommission it before the other drives fail. Sure 1-2 years old, replace the disk. 5 years old, maybe if the disks are cheap enough. 10 years old, that whole thing is probably going to recycling, disks and.
    • Mirroring 14tb on another 14tb drive wastes a lot of space. RAID1 gives me 24tb. RAID5 gives me 42TB. I almost double my storage with raid 5 (well 50%, but it feels more when we are talking big disks). This is also the argument I followed when people explained how pointless and wasteful 2 bay nas's were, particularly with large disks.
    So there we are.
    I also don't have a computer with ~46 Gb of ram as a freenas server. But Im told it shouldn't be a huge issue for a single person NAS.

    Upgraded today from a 9700K and Maximus X Hero to a 10900K and a Rog Strix Z490-E Gaming.

    I love it when new bits arrive through the mail : )
