For Sale – Brand New Fractal Kelvin S24 AIO CPU Water Cooler Unopened

Brand new Fractal S24 CPU Cooler AIO Water Cooler

Still in cellophane packaging, just decided to go with air instead of water and had gone past the 14 day returns with where i purchased it from.

Fractal Kelvin S24 AIO Water CPU Cooler

Simple to install, silent operation, powerful performance and easy expandability define the Kelvin Series. The silent high-performance ceramic pump is strong enough to support considerable expansion, should you decide to include GPU blocks and/or additional radiators in the same loop.

The Kelvin Series water cooling systems are constructed from enthusiast class components. Both the CPU block and the radiator are made from pure copper, for maximum performance and an increased product life span with zero maintenance required.

All modern CPU sockets are supported by the versatile, easy-to-use mounting kit.

Key features

Fantastic cooling performance

The strong pump and the full-copper construction places the Kelvin Series water cooling system ahead of the pack in cooling performance.

Pump resistor included for the ability to optimize the system to a lower noise level, while maintaining impressive performance levels
Dynamic GP-12 PWM fans for quiet operation with significantly large airflow

Wide PWM speed range, 500-2000 RPM, providing accurate and better fan speed control with quieter operation
Expandable system. Just open it up to get the full benefits of custom water cooling, with the ability to add any components you want to the loop, such as a graphics card cooler.

High pressure pump allows strong water flow rates even when an additional CPU or GPU water block or an additional radiator has been added to the loop.

Standard G 1/4″ thread fittings for compatibility with the vast majority of enthusiast water cooling products.

The tubes are fastened with two-part brass fittings, providing a secure seal while being easy to open and re-seal with a standard wrench.

Easy refilling with dedicated fill port. Extra strong fill port that can be accessed by hand, with an allen key or with a coin for easy durable handling.

Made with enthusiast-grade components developed in cooperation with Alphacool

Highly reliable ceramic bearing pump, with custom tuned maximum RPM for the optimal balance between performance and noise level
made with a revolutionary copper/nylon radiators

Full copper CPU Water block design featuring strategic jet plate improvements

Avilable in many radiator configurations

Long lifetime. The performance of most pre-filled water cooling systems degrade quite significantly over time, because of galvanic corrosion and water loss.

Galvanic corrosion occurs over time when two metals with different galvanic potential (such as aluminum and copper) are in contact. It can be slowed with anti-corrosion additives in the water, but the best way to maintain performance over time is to use metals with similar galvanic potential. The Kelvin Series water cooling system is constructed with pure copper in both the radiator and the water block, along with brass fittings.

To avoid the common issue of most pre-filled water cooling units (that tend to lose performance over time due to water loss in the tubes), Fractal Design equipped the Kelvin series with a fill dedicated port.

SDS, HCI and CDP are key to dream enterprise storage system

What better way to start a new year than to plan and build something brand new? My pet project would be an enterprise storage system. (OK, I really had my eye on that do-it-yourself Ferrari Portofino kit, but this is a storage column after all.)

Unfortunately, my extremely limited engineering abilities and all-thumbs hands mean I won’t be able to cobble my dream enterprise storage system together myself. My imagination doesn’t have those limitations, however, so I’ll describe it here. I want my new storage system to do everything and to do it well.

Some of the newer storage techs that have gotten a foot in the data center door over the past few years share a common theme: Storage has been too hard — hard to buy, hard to set up and configure, hard to use and hard to maintain. Easy, the new industry byword, might be a difficult concept for some storage pros to wrap their heads around. However, today, LUNs are shunned and provisioning is no longer a three-day turnaround, but rather a menu pick for end users.

HCI to the max

Nowadays, if you can’t call your storage hyper-converged or software-defined, it’s probably not really storage — at least not in the 21st-century sense. Given that, my custom-built enterprise storage system would be built around a hyper-converged infrastructure architecture, but with a couple of variations on the HCI theme.

My system would integrate the key components that make HCI, well, HCI — storage, servers and networking. But it would have such closely integrated software-defined storage management with software-defined networking and software-defined servers, everything could be throttled up and down and configured and reconfigured on the fly, so storage performance and capacity could be rejiggered as needed. Every component — CPU, memory, network interface card, network, whatever — can be manipulated. That kind of endless flexibility would allow my system to morph into whatever was necessary at any given moment — to make sophisticated decisions like what data to tier, when to tier it and what to tier it to. It will be one big whole software-defined enchilada.

My HCI system will also let servers outside the architecture access its storage resources. That way legacy gear can be part of the new world order as well. And the enterprise storage system will allow you to carve out storage regions that provide custom media configurations based on need. This means the system would accommodate all kinds of media: really fast flash; fairly fast flash; and pokey, cheap and commodious hard drives.

Cloud access would be built in — of course! — to allow access to multiple cloud providers for live, backup or archive data. This would be enabled by a file system that works like an automatic transmission, shifting transparently among protocols — block, NFS, SMB or object — as required by the apps accessing data. Seriously, users shouldn’t have to go under the hood of the storage machine to get that kind of protocol flexibility. It should just happen.

Built-in backup

If you can’t call your storage hyper-converged or software-defined, it’s probably not really storage — at least not in the 21st-century sense.

I’d also add continuous data protection-based backup, which has been languishing too long on the storage sidelines. It’s time for ongoing data protection that backs up data automatically to other storage systems or the cloud or Venus. Wherever it makes the most sense and recovery is easiest, just as long as you don’t have to do anything but point the system in the right direction. While it really doesn’t matter how it gets done, whether it’s via native software or third-party apps, we definitely want to do away with proprietary formats. So we can recover data with other tools or simple copy commands.

Encryption — in flight and at rest — will be the default. And if I can’t incorporate full-fledged security tools, the system will at least alert users when anything doesn’t quite look kosher, such as off-hours access, sudden activity or unexpected access to secondary data.

Storage, manage thyself

This dream enterprise storage system would also support mega-metadata. It’s an amped-up level of metadata that enables data to be smarter than us, or at least more on the ball than we typically are. So the data knows what to do with itself, what level of protection it needs based on its sensitivity or usefulness, how and when it should be tiered, who can read it and copy it, and when it should self-destruct by pressing its own delete button.

And, of course, all of this should have endless scalability to grow to those elusive n numbers of nodes or whatever — storage, servers, network, you name it. Your starter kit might be the size of a Cracker Jack box, but it should be able to expand to Google-ish dimensions using easy, in-place upgrades to ensure you’re always running on the latest technology.

Truth or fiction?

A lot of the stuff described here is actually available, so it’s not all pipe dream stuff. The problem is you’d be hard pressed to find a single product that has it all. The first vendor that gets there will corner the storage market for sure. OK, maybe not the whole market; maybe just me.

For Sale – Big bargain £375 for 8700k 16GB G.Skill 4266Mhz Noctua D15 Fractal Nano S

Hi purchased around 4 weeks ago.

I have a brand new motherboard which is an Asus Maximus X Apex, however I was just going to return that to Amazon as I can get a refund as opposed to taking a hit on it.

The reason for the sale is because I’m going to go for X299. I initially went to Z370 to save money but I’ve not saved anything at all. I paid £408 for the processor when they were in short supply at Scan. They’ve since dropped in price (inevitable) which is a kicker….

The CPU and Ram are not new, they’ve been used in an ITX build I had, but the motherboard died, and then I ordered the above motherboard, but on reflection I just want to go X299.

With regards to meeting, I’m not well at the moment so it certainly wouldn’t be any time soon, hence collection.

On another note, I’ll post pictures up at some point this evening.

For Sale – SurfaceBook Performance base i7 16gb ram 512ssd

For sale is a brand new Microsoft Surface Book with performance base. I have just received this Surface Book as a replacement for a damaged laptop.

Surface Book is brand new, I have only opened it to show for pictures and booted up to check it works.

Bought from John Lewis in April (25/4/17) for £2700. Microsoft warranty until April 2018 and 3 years warranty from John Lewis. So buy in absolute confidence.

If you’re looking for a 13″ laptop, this is best in class and for this price nothing comes close. It’s amazing what you can get for your money considering an iPhone X is £1000 :)

Ideally I would like a trusted forum member to collect. However willing to post. Special delivery 1pm is £10 (as far as I am aware).

Specification as the picture below.

Price and currency: 1500
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: Cash on collection, Paypal, Bitcoin, Vertcoin, Tron, Lite coin
Location: Hawarden
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference
