    ** NVIDIA RTX 30 SERIES (3090 / 3080 / 3070) NOW ONLINE AT OcUK **

    What's the qualifying criteria for the "GPU Deals" section voucher codes? I was hoping to wait until all this madness dies down before replacing my 1080 but my GPU has developed a fault so going to need to upgrade :mad:

    Spec me a NAS....

    In the past I;ve always used an HP Microserver for NAS duties, but mine is a bit long in the tooth and it;s time for an upgrade. The current Gen10 Plus is way overpriced for my needs.... So - what kind of things would you recommend? Low noise and small form factor are important I will be...

    Thoughts on EPYC or Threadripper as a SMB VM Host

    Why do you want dual socket? But yes, used kit will go far further if you're up for that.

    Thoughts on EPYC or Threadripper as a SMB VM Host

    For the vast majority of VM workloads the EPYC processors are fine - we run our enterprise vSphere cluster with over 600 VMs on 6 hosts on the 32-core 2ghz ones each backed by 1TB RAM, though we have a seperate 3 host cluster for high demand or time-critical processing which has higher speed...

    Decent water-based satin coat?

    Basically, oil paints always flow better. For water based wood paints don't skimp - the cheaper ones are generally awful. They all go yellow, virutally no difference there.

    ** NVIDIA RTX 30 SERIES (3090 / 3080 / 3070) NOW ONLINE AT OcUK **

    Can't order anything until we get published card sizes. Need to make sure it fits in my mATX cube case. The Nvidia cooler looks so awesome I don't know if I even want a custom cooler on it :)

    Microserver Gen10 BIOS request

    Managed to find the .rom file in a UEFI zip version online and used the windows flash utility to run it, so I'm ok now thanks. Have to admit HP's attitude on not allowing BIOS downloads after just 12 months has put me off Microservers as they also aggressively issue takedown notices if anyone...

    80mm fan blanking plate?

    Anyonme have any idea if these are available at all? I can find grilles/guards but not blanking plates. I want to mount a pump/reservoir combo in front of an 80mm fan outlet and the easiest way would be to use a blanking plate over the outlet which I can then drill for the pump mount points

    House modernisation-Bedroom washbasins.

    When I grew up we had one in every bedroom. In a big family they were great - no waiting in the morning to wash/brush teeth etc. However habits have changed now. Most people have showers every day whereas it was more common in the past to have a wash in the morning and baths in the evening. I...

    Have you ever known the outsourcing of IT Support/Services work?

    The trick to making outsourcing work is all in the contract negotiation - unfortunately most organisations who outsource don't realise this and then find out later that the service provided is not sufficient, or too expensive, or both. One organisation I know outsourced support of a legacy...
