    so who did the original install? Was it Brian? I re-watched the video installing the old one and it was just linus and another guy putting the batteries in.

    I might look like a fool , but i must ask, why do u guys need a dedicated server room this big, even if including all the data for the 3D printers along with raw files, it cant be this much

    Linus: *Complains about spending like $90 on custom cheap PCs* Also Linus: *Doesn’t seem bothered about buying a $30000 server replacing a $10000+ server.*

      Do you even math bro? They covered the cost of the unit. He paid for batteries, warranty, and whatever else. So he probably paid like 15k-17k. Not bad considering the original one was out of warranty.

    Try Vertiv UPS they’re better. Also they’ve good PAC units typically for small sized server rooms also with RH control & also for other types of sensible heat generating environment.

    Doesn't he lock the server room? Kind of defeats the purpose of the lock if you can just open a triangle in the wall to get in.

    Sorry I'm so late to the party. Eaton really has some explaining to do and Linus should really get his money back for this bullshit. See if you can find anything in the manual that mentions this: www.eaton.com/content/dam/eaton/products/backup-power-ups-surge-it-power-distribution/backup-power-ups/eaton-9170-resources/Eaton_9170Plus_Users_Guide.pdf I certainly can't. Further my guess would be those rails don't need a locking nut since they're soldered on. Then go and immediately try to shift blame on anyone but themselves. No a "service" wouldn't have caught cables in an non-service area. The only reason they should be in there is to replace a broken module.

    I now am wondering why he even locks his server room considering there are now 2 easily accessible doors to it.
