Re: Define Mini DAW (PICS ADDED!)

Looks likes an interesting build - thanks for taking the time to post. I have a similar set up in my DAW with an HR02 and exhaust fan in a P182. I have my drives ( Samsung ecogreen and Hitachi 7k1000.D) suspended and seek noise is only a minor irritation with the door closed. Questions: 1. The scyth...

Re: 1st HTPC

Balinus, Yes I think if you can wait the zacate boards seem a better option for your htpc. Linux support for a lot of the new hardware continues to impress me which is why I've made the switch for most of my day to day tasks. The Phoronix site its worth a look for linux hardware compatibility. They ...

Re: Needing to Build a Quiet Digital Audio Workstation!

Not to put a spanner in the works but SB has been great for the benchmarkers and the gamers but there are a lot of DAW builders getting a lot of trouble with the 67 chipset http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/mar11/articles/pc-notes-0311.htm http://www.soundonsound.com/forum/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=886...

I like what you're doing! Forgive the question as it is for my education but is software raid (mdadm) on linux a no-go for this array size?

Bluefront, I agree the standards would be difficult to make universal across multiple reviewers . However SPCR's heatsink test rig is our local standard so my point was that a quick "dash" of statistical significance with reviews at SPCR might improve the accuracy of our grain-o-salt-ometer!

Lies, damned lies and statistics

I feel that SPCR is the more scientific of the hardware sites out there at the moment. What made me think about this statistical analysis of reviews was the fact that coolers get top ratings based on a degree or two of temperature improvement over the competitors. (Granted ease of installation, size...

I think there would be a demand for a flow guardian. I have a flow switch in my loop which is hooked up to a 555 pulse generator. If there is no flow when the computer is switched on (pump failure) the MOBO doesn't boot. The pump is switched by a 240v relay with 12v coils connected to the 12v on one...

Here's to your total dedication...What about LAN parties?:D
How are you converting the flow sensors o/p for use? Can this be done using PICs ?
With regard to condenstion what about the gunge the phase change cooler guys use ? Would this help?
Best of luck with the rest of the project
