    Do you attach gear to a sheet of plywood in the basement?

    Do you attach gear to a sheet of plywood in the basement? About 15 years ago, in another city, I had a small sheet of plywood attached to the wall of the basement. It held the DSL modem, the network switch, and other small component related to my home network. Fast forward: I've just bought a...

    R720 connector documentation wrong?

    NVMe using PCIe slots on X9DRE-TF+

    SuperMicro 846E16-R1200B replacing PLINK IPC-ML4U20-MSAS

    I have a PLINK IPC-ML4U20-MSAS with 20 HDD and 4 SSD, but lately I've grown tired of having to derack it to get into the case.

    What power supply are you using with your Lian Li PC-D8000?

    I am planning to buy the Lian Li PC-D8000 case and install about 28 HDD into it. Those of you already running this case, what power supply are you using? I'm thinking an 800W PSU will be sufficient while powering an Intel Xeon E5-2630.
