  1. PSU and GPU's you say we got you fam Also specs above look great
  2. Thanks appreciate the kind words, I think we will try our best to do 1 a week older hardware video with the mix of new gear. The older hardware videos get great hits and amazing ROI. I really want to do a FM2+ vs 2020 video soon as well as that above laptop
  3. Over the years we have been asked countless times for recommendations on making a ‘homebrew’ or ‘DIY’ Network Attached Storage system. For many this was because they were dissatisfied with the ‘performance’ NAS-appliances such as those offered by Qnap, ASUStor, or Synology had to offer. For others it was the asking prices those appliances demand. For others still is was their lack of easy expandability – as you cannot (easily) stick a 5th hard drive in a 4bay NAS appliance. Others still were simply because enthusiasts like to tinker and did not want to buy a pre-packaged, pre-built system… after they had built dozens and dozens of computer systems. The reasons for wanting to make your own NAS really do vary. One common theme though is the ease and sheer luxury of having a secondary backup to push all your data to that is not ‘on the cloud’… and ask anyone involved with the Fappening or countless other data breaches about how secure cloud storage really is. In this article we are going to go over a sample build. Along the way we will go over typical alternatives and solutions that we did not opt for. As we discuss in this article, it is not the be all and end all. No two scenarios will be the same. You may disagree with our personal opinions. These opinions are shaped by our experience, our requirements and since we do have access to a lot of parts ‘for free’ some of our component selections may not be optimal for you. Nothing used in our guide though would be parts we would not recommend to others. As such this article will come with a somewhat limited list of alternatives. As we go through the build we will give you our reasoning why we picked A over B or C, and when B or C may be more optimal for you. We will only talk about serious options. Their benefits and their negatives. Be it software, hardware… or even configuration of the NAS. We will do our level best to show you what questions you should be asking yourself and what would be right for you before you pull the trigger and order any part. At worst you can consider this a good introduction guide on building a NAS that is easily expandable, and upgradable, using parts we would recommend to you if we were talking in person. It will not be the cheapest but with tweaking to better fit your budget and needs is a good safe place to start. So while some may find our selection… odd, we hope you at least find it worthy of reading. Enjoy, and please feel free to comment in the forum. We will always do our best to give you an honest assessment and honest answer to any question(s) you may have. Read the Full Review
  4. Today I am comparing the new HyperX Pudding...Key Caps to the old PBT as well as enjoying my custom HyperX Pudding. A fine keycap with some aggressive font and light transfer, HyperX did a great job with their Pudding Keycaps. HyperX Double Shot PBT Keycaps, Only $24.99, 2 year warranty as well as oil-resistant. They do work with 99%(excluding the spacebar) of mechanical keyboards, making your old keyboard look new and/or adding a great look for any led mechanical keyboard.

  13. Not every review goes as planned but the Maono AU-PM421 is an extremely durable high-quality microphone kit, the boom arm is not the nicest one on the market but the sound quality and touch mute button with LED indicator is one of the best. If you are needing a great audio solution the PM421 should be on your shortlist and is currently even lower-priced then during the review. Use our Amazon link to help support RHR.

  18. Just got this bad boy should be fun for a “can it game in 2020” video current video I am working on, shockingly good kit for such a low price
  19. Thought it was time to treat myself and the family so I made some prime rib and Yorkshire puddings it all turned out awesome
  20. it is far from thin hahah this is my video editing rig, most times I make a video I have about 20tb of external storage that I backup every broll or video or event to, then I save a copy on my local system. At 1080p I could record forever and hardly put a dent in this. At 4k I’m using a 250gb min pretty much per video. i also like to have mirrored backups of family photos and things like that. from time to time a physical backup of the site helps to. i will also have a capture card video coming up after this cooling video and 2 audio ones where this capture card is chewing up space like no tomorrow haha beyond all the spinning disks I have 2 1 tb nvme one is the OS and adobe drive as well as a few game other is current videos being edited. my plan is to some day when I can find 5tb Ssds for a good price is swap them all for ssd storage and move and spinning to a nas. i was going to build a new nas on Friday but a emergency put any other projects that I need to be out of the house for on hold.
  21. Haha if only it was that cool but it was super low priced so I could not pass on that. kit includes all the pipes, res, pump, rad fittings and block As well as liquid for $99. new their on sale in Canada for like 118 plus shipping normally their over $200 so I was happy to get it prepped my rig last night also jammed in some of my backup drives and a new 1200 watt psu. this was before cable clean up, had to remove one drive from this stack do to lack of ports. There is also a 5tb 2.5” hidden on the other side I’ll show with my embarrassing cable photos.
  22. Well it was on newegg direct from Alphacool next day for like $99 cad so I 'm guessing the "open box never used" had something to do with this haha
  23. yah I was with you till 2 other tech discords I am in wanted a unboxing even if I make it a joke to do with how bad the box is damaged. I will hammer something out tomorrow
  24. Have a watercooling kit that showed up anyone want a video on it and review or Na? Product is fine inside
