    ZOTAC Announces EN72070V

    Yes you can have 2 nvme drives at the same time. yeah I was hoping the cpu would be socketed. Which is a shame. If you want 6c/12t then this is the system to get, you can’t put anything more than 4c/8t in the en1070. I honestly feel like the system is a little underpowered and would opt for an...

    ZOTAC Announces EN72070V

    In case any of you were wondering what the inside looks like. I was slightly disappointed that its not like the 1070 series where you can upgrade the CPU and the GPU followed a proper MXM format. The thermal paste application is also really bad. I replaced it with CoolerMaster Maker Gel and...

    Injecting SLI into ITX motherboards with PCIe Bifurcation

    No I haven't. I posted about this in the past but never got around to posting it up. I had a few people contact me via twitter asking for the instructions, hence I'm posting them up. I had a full guide written for z170/z270 boards as well, but I left in on my NAS in Australia, so its...

    Injecting SLI into ITX motherboards with PCIe Bifurcation

    Here is the tutorial for injecting SLI certificates into ITX motherboards with PCIe Bifurcation capabilities. There's no need for silly driver workarounds, works with Nvidia drivers out of the box. AMD: LINK Intel: TBA For Intel the process is slightly different because the UEFI / BIOS is in a...

    Prototype Project Orthrus - Smallest SLI mATX case (V2)

    And once again I am humbled and I thank everyone for their support and patience. As I mentioned before a lot of unfortunate personal events pushed this project further out than I wanted, but with those under wraps now, its just going to be a matter of working out the details with manufacturing...

    Prototype Project Orthrus - Smallest SLI mATX case (V2)

    Yes gents. Development is continuing. My apologies for lack of updates, but not much has progressed just yet. I'm next in the queue with the manufacturer to get this case into production. Few small design changes have been discussed and as soon as I can I'll share the final changes and further...

    Tri-Bay NUC M.2 NAS

    Hey mate here's something that might be a little easier to contain in the small footprint you're working with: http://www.sybausa.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=930 This 4 port M.2 raid adapter has Port Multiplier abilities. So you could theoretically hang up to 8 SATA drives...

    Roo-ter (How to setup a SFF Router + Redundant NAS)

    Hahahah. I feel ya :) It's being worked on .... believe me ... I couldn't want for this case to be released soon enough. There were a number of reasons for the delay, some legal, some related to the creator's health and personal circumstances ... but last I heard ... and I have some good...

    Roo-ter (How to setup a SFF Router + Redundant NAS)

    There goes that idea ;) The power brick for the Brix is 19v so without a step-down to 12v I couldn't piggy back this adapter from the power brick. So this wouldn't work :/ Unfortunate.

    Roo-ter (How to setup a SFF Router + Redundant NAS)

    That's awesome ! I wonder if I could use that with this setup. Reason is I was doing a little bit more digging last night thinking to myself .... What if I forewent the M.2 NVME cache drive and instead put something like this: Amazon Link I could use an M.2 -> PCIe adapter to connect it. I...

    Roo-ter (How to setup a SFF Router + Redundant NAS)

    Heheh no worries, I moved the PDF setup guide above the diagram so its more visible :) Good point. As to the guest OS, you can literally change it to anything, you can make it a permanent install or run off an ISO every time ... any flavour of Linux or Windows, whatever you want. You can also...

    Roo-ter (How to setup a SFF Router + Redundant NAS)

    Overview As a frequent traveler I needed a portable router + NAS solution. Something small, with minimal amount of cables, no dongles etc … Something that I could take with me on the road and something I could store my data on securely. In addition to that I wanted it to be fast. Fast to boot...
