    Hello everyone! I am ready to become a part of the xx collective and support ideas that can do the world better)

    Hi, mehatronicar!
    Thank you for your time, I really appreciate it!
    in my form, I really didnt indicate the hard drive, as I was choosing between models to use PCIe Gen4.
    here is the boxes from it
    its corsair mp600 1tb nvme

    I also bought a new memory DDR4 2x32gb hyperx 3600 to update my home server, its on a photo too)

    I am completely ready for launch, but it looks like my profile was not approved for this month ((

    moreover, I am so ready that I have a second 2070, the same one, to enhance the work in heavy loads :smiley:
