Heh... I hear you.

I took a trip down memory lane last night by starting off on page one of this thread and working my way forward.... it's amazing how much cases, fans, cooling, etc... have advanced over the last 5+ years. It's also pretty neat to see a lot of the same usernames still around. :)

It is a PC-Q25B. Very cramped but a pretty awesome NAS box for the price. So good I bought two.

The rig is a Celeron G555, 2x4GB of Samsung (maybe?) 1600MHz, Asus P8P77-I, 64GB M4 for boot drive. 3 Seagate 3TB Barracudas for storage. CPU is cooled w/ Noctua NH-L12.

Does the G555 transcode ok?

I don't transcode. It is my HTPC. XBMC has no issues with playback of any of my videos.

Ah. My Jailbroken Apple TV runs plex and needs everything in MP4. I am thinking that there maybe a setting like speedstep that is slowing the CPU down. I have just been too lazy to check. Might try XBMC

My Camera, is crap. Its about...10-12 years old now. And, this new build isn't done yet. I have no proper GPU's for it. And I have lots of management left to do due to not having all the extension cables.

40% of this rig is thanks to many good friends.





The Video Card however, if there are those that remember came from a Folding Contest. One, that I was Quite happy to win :)

I might take you up on that once I get it finished. Its far far far from complete, just haven't added anything in forever so I figured I would.
