What am I working on?
Jim – Finishing up adding all 12 x 8TB drives to the burst box.
- Not all USB 3 ports are created equal. My core i7 box couldn’t handle the load. The AMD box did. Using 2 USB3 x 10 powered hubs
- The Seagate USB drives I purchased will get hot if not give enough space.
- Purchase special plugs to make it all work.
- $50 rack from Home Depot to organize
Jim – Update for Nvidia Shield last week
