Donations needed v2

  1. Looks like the server's power supply is on the way out (50,000 hour MTBF was spot on), so going to have to ask for donations again

    Thankfully server grade PSUs are not as stupidly expensive as other parts, so I only need £65. Will be replacing with a 350W Seasonic gold rated PSU


    Pls donate via Paypal to:

    Donations so far:
    • £15 - me
    • €60 - Queen
    • £30 - Joel

  6. pics as promised


    ^ City Reach, the building the datacenter is in


    ^ nice clean xeon ready for re-pasting


    ^ Appreciate how thin this thing is and yet it can still cool like 90W worth of CPU


    ^ Old dodgy PSU


    ^ new psu installed


    ^ another angle


    ^ it's ridiculous how much smaller and lighter it is than the one it replaced. the old one filled the entire space


    ^ psu label


    ^ casually making a mess of the DC floor



    ^ one of the 10,000rpm case fans had partially seized, fucking piece of shit

    inb4 it was triggering short circuit protection in the psu and the old psu was actually fine (it was connected directly to the psu with nothing else in series)

    have now wired 4 out of the 5 remaining case fans into motherboard headers so can keep track of future fan failures
