Astaroth Just keeps getting better and better. Using the LSI MegaRaid 9240-8ijust for JBOD seems like a waste, but cost obviously isn't an issue lol. You should add it to your loop. Take off that passive heatsink and put a universal waterblock on it
Thanks
I tried some cheaper Raid cards but no love for them
not sure im gonna like adding 25 secs to startup but will see what happens

I picked up a rasa gpu block for a upcoming Matx build but seems a little big unless i can McGyver it on there somehow

Jail Binger: If you wanna pop that puppy's can you don't have to grease him so hard, jarhead.
Highway: Well, it sounds like you're a man of experience.
Jail Binger: What the hell's that supposed to mean, grunge shit.
Highway: It means: Be advised. I'm mean, nasty and tired. I eat concertina wire and piss napalm and I can put a round in a flea's ass at 200 meters. So why don't you go hump somebody else's leg, mutt face, before I push yours in.
Jail Binger: Ain't gonna be so smart with your balls stuffed in your mouth, jarhead!
Highway: [hands cigar to the young man] Hang on to this, boy. I think war's just been declared.
