    Pimp Your Rig

    Just upgraded my CPU to a Phenom II x 4 945 from a Sempron 145 for that Plex and 8 Gigs of Ram Installed new Arctic fans since the old ones started to whine after 7 years. A new CPU cooler too I had laying around. But the coolest is that fan controller I had laying around. Double sided tape on one side in the case. ? Server going strong!

    SATA sontroller card $2 after rebate @ newegg

    You posted this one: SYBA SI-PEX40057 PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Low Profile SATA III (6.0Gb/s) 4-ports RAID Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816124060 (at the moment they give you a free 2 port card with this one) What is the difference? is it the 2 lanes of bandwidth? on the top one? SYBA SI-PEX40064 PCI-Express 2.0 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) Controller Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816124064

  10. Alignment has no effect on drives > 2.2TB. Thank you for the fast response. So ok I will not do the 4k and it will start on sector 63. Should I change the default partition format from 4k to unaligned?
  11. I am about to pre-clear my new 4TB HGST for my parity. All of my 2TB drives have been pre-cleared with 4k-aligned. Should I do 4k-aligned with my new 4TB drive? Thank you.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145912 Just bought one for my parity.
  13. I guess I am going to go with the HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 7200 RPM for my Parity and then upgrade to the Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 for data. Big price difference wish they where cheaper.
