  • Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Ti OC 11GB Turbo Rev. 2.0 Blower Fan picture
    Ken Colorossi (Repair Technician) Says:
    The new Gigabyte 2080Ti blower card gives a slight boost in clock speed than it's previous revision which makes it one of the most powerful GeForce cards out there. Do be prepared for some fan noise as the card is expectantly noisy for a blower card.
  • Intel NUC NUC8I7HVK picture
    Ken Colorossi (Repair Technician) Says:
    The NUC is a great all around lower budget and compact sized computer. It is great for home office use and low intensive workflows.

    One thing to mention is the NUC has a low hum you can hear if you put your ear right up to the system. Otherwise, it is quiet and perfect to place on your desk.
  • EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER XC 8GB Open Air (B-Stock) picture
    Ken Colorossi (Repair Technician) Says:
    The 20 series EVGA cards are extremely reliable and after the fans spin up they are one of the quietest cards currently on the market. However, I will say that there is a slight 'click/hum' noise when the fans first spin up. Since the default fan curve of the card has the fans at idle, you can hear the fans click on/off for light-medium loads if you are working in a quiet office. You can mitigate the fan noise by setting a default fan curve to anything above idle either through a VBIOS flash or using an application like EVGA Precision XOC.

  • Athena RM-3U3035S 3U Rackmount Case picture
    Ken Colorossi (Repair Technician) Says:
    This server chassis is a nice median between the short 2U and tall 4U. Like its 2U counterpart you are able to fit upto a Micro-ATX motherboard. But, with the 3U you are able to fit full size expansion cards. It has three 5.25 inch bays for a lot of expansion. I like this case for the ability to fit a five 3.5 inch drive hot swap bay. Makes a nice compact storage server.
  • Athena RM-2U2022S 2U Rackmount Case picture
    Ken Colorossi (Repair Technician) Says:
    This is a really nice compact server chassis. It allows you to fit a decent amount of hardware into a small space. It supports an Mini-ITX motherboard with up to 4 3.5 inch HDDs as well as a Micro-ATX with up to 2 3.5 inch HDDs, along with 2 5.25 inch drive bays for more expandability. This chassis is only 15 inch deep which means it will fit in shallow server racks for more compatibility.
  • iStarUSA D-400L-7 4U Rackmount Case picture
    Ken Colorossi (Repair Technician) Says:
    This is a really nice server chassis for many reasons. It has ample cooling ability from its three 120mm fans in the center fan array along with the two 80mm fans in the rear. It has plenty of 5.25 inch bays for expandability for items such as HDD and SSD hot swap bays and optical drives among other items. It also supports large motherboards like EATX and SSI EEB server motherboards.
