Is it just me, or does it seem that Lian-Li is getting a little more aggressive with their pricing? <Downward trends>

I'm actually going to start moving away from Lian Li for my servers, simply due to the lack of cable management ability. I tried really hard with my B10 to keep it looking neat an tidy, but without more clearance on the back panel I'm going to have to go with a fatter case.

Are you not happy with the PC-09 case either? I routed a bunch of cables behind the mobo with it.

I haven't owned a new Lian in quite sometime. My newest one is in the box PC-Q07R Only other ones I have are B10, PC-60B, and V1000B All old styles.

 

While I love the B10, its not able to handle the full breath of wiring required for that box. My V1000B is an excellent gaming rig and design still holds up as does the thermals. But If I was to rebuild the server I think I would choose either a Fractal, NZXT or Corsair.

Interesting. I'm only sure of one thing re: new cases; I will not go back to steel. I want all my cases going forward to be light.

      The SDM R4 is SOLD OUT!
       
       
      The SDM R4 is a bracket that facilitates mounting two additional 2.5″ drives in a HP MicroServer Gen8. There are also mounting holes for fans across the bottom to help cool RAID/SATA cards. The kit includes all the fasteners needed to install.
       
      With optional Stackers you can run four 2.5″ drives on the SDM R4. The SDM R4 will support four 9.5MM 2.5″ drives. If you want to run four drives on the SDM R4, you need to order SSB stacking brackets listed below. One set of SSB per drive pair, four drives will require two SSB kits. Because of the size of the SDM R4, if you are going to boot your server using the internal USB port, you will need to use a USB stick that is shorter than 1″. For more information on mounting instructions look here: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5960-hp-ms-g8-25-drive-bracket-revision-history-new-rev-35-and-rev-4-info/?p=137922

      Panos Panay just wowed the Microsoft crowd with two incredible hardware reveals. The first was the SurfaceBook i7 with a whopping 16 hours of battery life.  The second was Surface Studio. I dare you to call it an "All in One" after today.
       
      I'll be chatting about all this gear on my new podcast, RESET. Find it here: mccabe.io
       
       
       

       
      Surface Studio
       
      The specs of Studio are impressive but visually it is stunning. It has 28" of wow that can be manipulated to however you prefer to create.
       

       
      Screen: 28" PixelSense Display
      Resolution: 4500 x 3000 (192 DPI)
      Color settings: Adobe sRGB, DCI-P3 and Vivid Color Profiles, Individually color calibrated
      Touch: 10-point multi-touch
      Aspect Ratio: 3:2
      Surface Pen
      Zero Gravity Hinge
      Quad-core 6th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M 2GB GPU GDDR5 memory or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 4GB GPU GDDR5 memory
       
      It looks like a creative persons dream machine.  Apple picked a bad week to follow Microsoft when it comes to hardware reveals.  I personally would like to try the Studio and Dial with some video editing software.  I think it will be great for that.
       
      Look at the Microsoft Store online for more photos.  It really is a nice looking Surface. Link Here.
       
      Surface Book
       
      The Surface Book is plain and simple; More.  More graphics and more battery.  It's a little heavier and starts at 3.6 pounds where last year's Surface Book was 3.3 pounds.  Maybe it's the new 6th Gen Intel Core i7 or the i7: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M with 2GB of GDDR5 memory.  That's nice but Panos stated they just put in more battery!  It's nice to see that.  Adds a little weight but for those that want the battery life it's a welcome change.
       

       
       
       
      Surface Dial
      The Dial is impressive.  It's compatible with any Windows 10 enabled PC, laptop, or tablet as long as it has the Anniversary Update.  Don't try this with your Surface Pro but it will stick to the screen of the Surface Studio!  It will have optimized off screen compatibility with Surface Book and SP4.
       
      It's a jog dial on steroids and Panos and software partners demo'd many uses of it. Color wheel, zoom in, etc.  It's $99 and can be purchased now for delivery on November 10th.
       

       
      Thanks for shopping with my links.  Maybe I can get one too!

      Well finished all the gyrations with Haswell and wrote it up on these posts.  The punch line is that there will be some growing pains.  Memory timings appear to be an issue just like the first gen Core I series.  Mostly in the motherboard which is good thing.  The Part 3 explains what happened.  In summary, safer to run on 2 banks of memory till some of the BIOS tweaks get implemented.  Affects several MFG from what I understand but I only tested 2 gigabyte models (2 each).
       
      Part 1 - Problems
      Part 2 - Success with the 4570S
      Part 3 - Lots of pain but ultimately success with the I7-4770
