    Replacement Heatsink 9361-8i

    I've found a supplier that sells heat sinks which I think will be a better option for the 9361-8i, they are a 26 fin heat sink with a 10mm base and an overall height of 28mm, they are 80mm long and have a width of 31mm, an eyeball comparison shows them looking identical in size but longer than...

The reviews I've read of NVMe's with pre-installed heatsinks, e.g. WD Black SN750, the heatsink didn't seem to make that big a difference in performance (kind...

    FS: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO $20

    Sigh. Turns out this particular model does NOT work with the 2011-3 Narrow ILM sockets: it only works with the square ones. So I have an unused one of these looking for a good home. I'm new here so happy to do a facetime or phone call or whatever before the sale to verify. Free ground/USPS...

    How to remove heatsink on Intel X520-DA2?

    Hey all Quick question: I'm in the process of making my server much quieter with low-RPM quiet fans. As part of this, I am refreshing the thermal paste on any heatsinks I can. All my components are used and potentially many years old, and I have expensive enthusiast thermal paste, so I...

    HDD Noise/heat

    Hello, My future NAS has to be in the living room of my home and so it has to be silent. I'm considering two different HDDs for Storage - WD Red or IronWolf (both 8 TB).

    X10SDV Thermal Paste

    Hello all! I've recently put together a SuperMicro X10SDV-6C+-TLN4F inside a CSE-721TQ-250B Super-chassis. It's a great system but a bit loud for my taste. I just saw Patrick's article on quieting it down using a Noctua CPU fan so I am going to give that a try. As long as I'm taking the...
