Welcome to my “Ultimate Overkill Desk” project! It’s basically what it says, I’m building a new desk for in my office and it’s going to be total overkill in all regards, including custom cable ducting and integrated LEDs! Continue reading Ultimate Overkill Desk Project
Recently I was approached by a company who had a kickstarter going for their product, the Juiced 2.0. They offered me a free sample and I decided to subject it to one of my full load reviews!
A friend needed a simple machine he wants to use as a virtualization host. A true server grade machine wasn’t needed in this case so I built another Ryzen based server! Continue reading Home Networking: Simple Ryzen Proxmox server build (Fractal Design Core 2300)
In looking for items to review I found this power bank + charger combination on Aliexpress and it looked quite interesting. I decided to buy it and subject it to my full load review test!
Today I’m taking a look at two cables made by TOPK. I picked these up myself from Aliexpress because they looked interesting! One has a magnetic quick disconnect with a LED and the other has a built-in Amp/Voltage meter, let’s see how they did when we stress test them a bit!
Another charger review! This time it’s the Aukey PA-T1 a 5 port charger which has 4 normal ports and one Quick Charge port. I also discuss the PA-T15!
Today we’re taking a look at the Powstro 5v 2.2A phone charger with 2 normal charging ports and a display which shows you the current output voltage and amps!
As I mentioned previously, one of the reasons for this server is to use it as a live streaming server for some of the IP cameras we use on our LAN parties. Since we now have 8MP/4K IP cameras I also wanted to stream in 4K, preferably in 60FPS to make scrolling text look all beautiful and crisp.
As I mentioned in my previous post about this subject, I recently built an AMD Ryzen 1700x based 2U server. Because next to running at LAN parties this server also needs to run at my home I wanted to have it somewhat quiet so I can run it in the garage without hearing it somewhere else like on my YouTube recordings
I recently had the need to build a 2U Server for home and LAN party usage. Since AMD Ryzen is now offering a very interesting 8 core CPU with plenty of PCIe lanes I decided to use a Ryzen 1700x. The server is running Proxmox and is even using GPU passthrough! This post will host the first video and some configuration details that are harder to convey in a video. A second video and post with more information about some hardware and the GPU passthrough will go up after this.
