    Ebay charges tax?

    Ever been to a second-hand store? This isn't a new thing.

    Who is still heavily using optical media ?

    I have loads of drives sitting around in the stack, some hanging out unplugged in older machines (except my Pentium ][ where it's needed for games), and a BDRE in my file server I actually use for burning. Aside from making CDs for the car, I have a couple friends that aren't able to get cable...

    Recommend me good Big Tower with 3x120mm ( 360 ) AIO fans support.

    Phanteks Enthoo 719. Enormous. You'll need to bring your own fans, though.

    Hackers Hold Man's Penis For Ransom In Digital Chastity Belt, Demand Bitcoin To Unlock

    May I first suggest a little Rule 34 research (with VPN/private browsing, etc.) if you want to look up this particular fetish. (I'm not speaking from experience, here, just knowledge, studies, other forums of a certain type *cough*, and maybe a psycho ex girlfriend of whom I am very happy I...

    Intel DG1 GPU Teardown, Failed Benchmarks, and Why It Won't Work on Most Systems

    Technically there was an i752 successor (if only briefly). The 800 series were chipsets (aside from the i860 CPU from the 80s), but the integrated graphics versions theoretically used the 740's successor architecture which had already been developed. I wouldn't mind a fully functional card for...

    Hackers Hold Man's Penis For Ransom In Digital Chastity Belt, Demand Bitcoin To Unlock

    Scans article for mention of "not his real name"...doesn't find it. Dude, I'm down with everyone having their personal kinks, but I'm not about to tell the whole office (and world) mine, especially when it goes wrong!

    How many SSD drives have you purchased?

    Despite the glaring flaw (can't remember what it was, it was so long ago) that required a "might erase your data" firmware update, I still have, use, and love my Vertex 3 MaxIOPS 120 and Agility 3 240s. Jmicron was always hot garbage. OCZ had some good stuff and some terrible stuff, those...

    Any experience with the Phanteks Revolt X / Pro? (Phanteks 719 / Luxe 2 case + dual system)

    The cooler is a beast! Right now I'm putting 315W into it and the hottest core is 78C (granted, the ambient temp is somewhat low), and it's not running 100%, either, so the sound is quite tolerable. Even the little VRM fan isn't annoying at all. The CPU is on a mild non-AVX OC and moderate AVX...

    Any experience with the Phanteks Revolt X / Pro? (Phanteks 719 / Luxe 2 case + dual system)

    They are similar, that's for sure. But the elite has 10 expansion slots, so it could actually be regular ATX+ITX if the ITX cooling is low profile. But either way, for a $700 price difference, no thank you. Yikes.

    Any experience with the Phanteks Revolt X / Pro? (Phanteks 719 / Luxe 2 case + dual system)

    I can't answer on #2, but since I have the case, I can answer #1: you will have a hard time fitting 2 PSUs plus all the other stuff at the same time. Technically, you will need to either mod the case or get creative to fit the second PSU since the case is designed for either ITX or 2 PSU, but...

    EBay for RAID Cards

    Yes, you can do that, many people do. When you flash it, make sure you use the IT mode firmware and it will turn the card into an HBA.

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    I've got one on my 10980XE. Fantastic performance and not too noisy, cores range 70s-80s C at 330W, and that isn't even at full speed. My D15 was over 100C with the same load and 100% fans.

    Dell Graphcore GC-C2-01 IPU PCIe Graphics Card (RARE AI Graphics Card)

    That is a cool card! Great design on the shroud, too. Shame about the price... If they are available at enterprise throwaway prices in 5 years, I must have one for my wall.

    How many SSD drives have you purchased?

    Damn, dude...21 drives! Share a pic of how you have all that crammed in your case? And why SATA instead of a few NVMe? (just curious)

    How many SSD drives have you purchased?

    Did a rough "in my head" count this morning and came up with about 16 just for me, plus a few more for family and friends. Most are low capacity (120-256GB) drives of one sort or another for systems that won't see many programs or user data installed on them (Boinc machines, HTPCs, my file...
