    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    _Gea Could I get an opinion from you? How would you handle less important *ISOs* mixed with personal photos and such, and some CPU for converting said *ISOs* around while supporting a few game servers? I have 8x8TB drives right now in a mergerfs and I'm irritated by it more than anything. My...

    Herman Miller Aeron - $669

    I'm glad I randomly read your post. I never knew what the chair from a couple jobs back was, but it was comfy. It was the Gesture. I'm really not a fan of my Aeron, even though I got it for 300 used and in great condition. Trying to find a well priced Embody locally, though maybe I'll grab a...

    Question about Google Authenticator

    I went a different way, GA and switching phones sucked in the past. Lastpass did make that easier, but it still wasn't perfect for me. Authy does the trick, but again it meant I was still using 2 apps and had to grab my phone each time. Bitwarden is where I ended up and it keeps the 2FA in...

    Netflix Password Sharing Crackdown

    It's a deal if they have enough things you like on it, but I find I personally don't enjoy enough of their media to justify the cost, and most of my content comes by other means truthfully. That last part makes my household a lose lose for what they're aiming at since I have no need of having it...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    Feel like I'll be on the same boat but replacing the 2080 with an AMD card and a bit delayed timeline wise. It's going to replace a Xeon 1270 and a 970 that were both second hand from a friend, so anything in the new line of cpus will be a nice upgrade. This system will probably make it's way to...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    And many modern cases do as well. But you tried to say that you wanted to use the space. So water cool the CPU and all X number of GPUs. Have a blast. It'll still be a smarter choice to get a 2990wx in there instead of a dual Epyc. We showed you the dollar value benefit to using TR vs Epyc or...

    New AMD Navi RX 3080 "XT"- "Pro" / 3070 Info

    A lot of factors for an effective PR campaign for this market. The gamers who build their own know what they want and look at that performance per dollar. The ones who build their own and aren't knowledgeable look to those who are, hopefully ending up in the first group down the line. The ones...

    New AMD Navi RX 3080 "XT"- "Pro" / 3070 Info

    I just really hope this isn't everything for them. AMD needs to offer either a 10% lower value for matching performance or a 10% higher performance for a matching price to really get this off the ground. A dollar for dollar performance to price match isn't going to get people to switch preferred...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    If you label AMD as hype and refuse to accept that it clearly and obviously isn't by the myriad of reviews saying that the current lineup is a damned strong comeback from them, then go bug the Intel people. Again, you're considering the wrong processors for the workload, and clearly I understand...

    Jeez, you're on the friggin internet... USE A SEARCH ENGINE! https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/amd/epyc/7601 https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/amd/ryzen_threadripper/2990wx Also, why would you expect they wouldn't have damn near a matching feature set of Intel? Do you color AMD completely friggin dense...

    Email info@cancom.com if you really want to order from them. Don't waste their time if not. Feel free to discuss with HPE direct if you want to as well. They'll all sell it to you if you're really willing to pay for it. Why do you keep crapping on AMD and yet you're looking for an AMD...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    But again, $600 12 core, 24 thread 2920X @ 629. You need to go down or up $100 to get the next nearest current Xeon Scalable system. And yet the 2920 beats both of them hands down by a mile. As to someone willing to sell you a platinum, Newegg has some for sale on their site. Cancom in San Fran...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    Wait wait... You say you can only afford a $200-$600 processor, but somehow that ISN'T THE PROBLEM? Why the hell are you even considering dual and quad processor epyc systems? And to top it off, you say that's the cheapest and slowed quad or hex system??? What rock have you been living under...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    I read most of this thread a couple of days ago and had a giggle watching Dan_D school you on what you need. Well, attempting to do so except that you're not listening to anyone. You're being told by a person who has managed systems you're describing including for the things you're wanting to...
