I've wanted to make a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for a long time, but I took a while to figure the best way to do it.

It has a 12V 5A power supply to power the Server, Modem, Router * Network Switch. This way even with a power cut the Server and all the required network equipment to keep it online will all be powered by the built in lithium-ion battery. The battery is also charged by the mains power.

The difficulty was because the server and modem are 12V, the router is 19V and the network switch is 5V. So I added the ability to add modules that slot in to the back of the UPS that can provide different voltages. The modules can also be swapped out for different ones in the future if need be.

The UPS monitors the voltages and current of the mains power supply, battery and the output. This information is shown on a small OLED display on the front of the UPS and also sent to the server via a USB cable. The server monitors the data from the UPS and can then shutdown safely if the power is off and the battery is running low.

I'm not completely sure what the capacity of the battery is but I think it should be able to power the whole system for a few hours if need be.

It's not perfect and my decision to package it so tightly has caused a few problems but the hardware is complete and now working but I still need to finish the software side.

Fingers crossed it all works properly :/

I don't know if this is good or not.

Sadly this a Xeon Server motherboard made by Portwell and not really intended for desktop use, but it's good to see lots of USB ports :D

It has 20 USB 3 ports on the back and 4 more USB 3 headers on the mobo.

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH USB PORTS!!! XD

The perfect movie?

After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first horrified by this new power, a hooker convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas.

The leaked specs for the new Samsung 980Pro show insane speeds, 7GB/Sec Read & 5GB/Sec Write.
But notice that the endurance of the drive is lower than the previous generation of Pro SSD.
Of course unless you are reading and writing large files you won't really notice any improvement.

no info on injuries

Just a snap though. The idiot parked his car partially on the road and when he later drove away 2 cars had to stop to avoid hitting him.

Yep, it looks good.
