    Ok I am back. This thread is now shifting to: "What to get my son for his graduation?" FYI for his 18th bday we ending up getting him a three piece set of suit cases. 

    He really likes his DCS. He is interested in building his own computer. That is right up my ally and so my wife and I are thinking of helping him buy some parts. 🙂 

    So far he is thinking:

    R5 3600

    32GB ram (DCS is a ram hog)

    B450 mobo 

    Fractal Meshify C

    500GB SSD

    video card?? so expensive

    PSU?? also super costly


    Do you guys have any other ideas besides some (not all) money/parts for a computer? 

    PSU and GPU's you say 😉 we got you fam


    Also specs above look great

    this is one other way for you to finance your channel ? I really liked the latest budget pc build, the one with the Phenom 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.

    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. Watch the video to know more and as always thanks for the views and have an awesome day.

  5. 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.

    That looks insane! Would this used as an archive or what would you need all those HDD for?

    Also 5TB 2.5"? I did not know that those were a thing...


    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.

  7. 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

    93759491-103B-41AC-AD97-4F2810D406E6.jpegprepped my rig last night also jammed in some of my backup drives and a new 1200 watt psu.

    D123F73E-BD45-4526-A9C5-839699EDAF1C.jpegthis 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.
