Yeah, I think you guys are right considering the price of 3TB WD Red's vs 2TB Reds.
Maybe I need to do some more research. My budget is pretty low so maybe ZFS is a better option for me instead of hardware raid. Put more money into actual drives instead of more hardware (and I actually would...
Thanks for the responses guys!!
I dont really plan on upgrading to larger than 2tb drives. As long as the 2tb Red drives will work with the Perc 6i, I think it should be just fine. I will be getting a brand new battery for whatever controller I end up with anyways.
I really dont need high...
Hi Guys, I have a quick question for those that know alot more than I...
I have always wanted to migrate to a raid 5 or raid 6 setup for my home server. I really just want something stable that will do Raid 5 with 6x2TB HDDs (Or 4 depending on my budget).
Anyways, I favor reliability over...
I'm in the same boat.
I am going to wait for the 860m to release, and if the power consumption is lower than the 765m I am giong to get either the MSI GS60, or the Clevo W230SS.
But if there is not much of a performance increase, I am going to try and get a used W230ST with the 765m for a...
I am trying to find info on which mSata drives are the best for raid applications. I am getting a laptop with 2x mSATA slots + a standard 2.5 HDD bay and I want to take full advantage.
I have been looking at the Plextor M5M and Mushkin Atlas Deluxe 120/128gb models, but was...
Guys, I need some help with a good audio setup for my mom. She lives in India so I kind of need to be able to fit this stuff in a suitcase to avoid import taxes :D
No home theater duty -- She only needs to be able to play music from an Iphone/laptop so I was really thinking about buying some...
We're looking to move physical machines into a different cluster, basically "collapsing" or merging 3 clusters into a single cluster. The virtual machines will stay on the same server / storage.
The kicker is I dont currently have access to he Vsphere console but I need to figure out the...
It depends on what you do really.
My preferred setup after lots of testing is independent mid-sized drives (vs raid 0 or one large drive).
I can use it as a scratch drive for my VM's so my main programs and OS dont take a hit on performance/usability.
If you are just running games off it, I...
I love my Enermax twister-bearing fans.
Quiet, not too expensive, and they have lasted a loooong time (at least 3 years at this point).
By comparison my Yate Loons lasted about a year before the bearings started to go (one by one), Lian Li case fans are just terrible, Scythe regular sleeve...
Its called Classic Shell.
You can pretty much disable any of the metro BS if you really dont like it, I have been running 8 on my desktops for quite some time now and It is basically like windows 7 but feels alot snappier (but less sparkle because there isnt any areo).
Will try that tomorrow (its for a work computer), thank you very much.
Describes the problem exactly as I am having - forgot to mention that I googled the shit out of the problem for an hour before posting.
I am having a similar issue.
Brand new build, Asus P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT, i7 3770K, 32gb Gskil Ares 1866 32 GB kit, XFX 7770 Ghz Ed, Seasonic X750
F3-1866C10Q-32GAB is the exact model # of the ram kit I bought (32gb matched kit)
I double checked the CPU pins and I dont see anything that...
so I cancelled my order with newegg and went with this one from Amazon + the 3yr square trade warranty
Drive: 109.99 (prime shipping), Warranty: $14 = $124
Ok so quick bump (hopefully no one minds)
1x Samsung F4 2TB
2x WD RED WD20EFRX 2TB drives
I should be OK to put them into a raid 5 setup, right? All are ~5900rpm drives so IO performance should be similar. I basically want one big drive to show up, and I will backup critical stuff with a 3TB...
It should be more than enough rad for the heat output, but like others have said there arent really any good fans.
Running them push-pull would help with that though.
Adding a 120mm rad with good fans would help out quite a bit, if you place the radiator in right spot in the loop (after CPU...
From this statement, you know you are admitting to going full retard - right?
I agree on the fact that both sides are acting like a bunch of fucking children. Israel does try to provoke shit, but Hamas does as well (but a superior nation is supposed to take the high-road, no?)...
I like their lifetime warranty, but I too HATE how they try to mess with the reference design to increase their profit margins.
If they stuck with reference design and actually put work in to the R&D of the card (cooling, etc), rather than marketing and packaging, I would have no trouble...
I picked up a 3770K from MC on friday and the 2500k was definately OOS.
They looked for like 20 mins in the back and confirmed it with me (the i7 was not actually for me, would have loved to pick up a 2500k to replace my old ass Q6600).
Also, they had 15 in stock at 9AM when I called...
You simply cant undercut microcenter - there is no better price :lol:
Wish I had the cash, but its overkill for me anyway. If they dump the price on the i5's I will pickup one (though its already cheap at the normal $170 price)
Yeah, I guess your right, 6950 crossfire is tempting - I will keep an eye out on ebay to see if I can snag any deals, but I only save $50 or less I am going for a 7950.
Also, I like faster single cards because I did have stuttering issues with the 4890s
Nice - fast shipping but I am sad to see the price went up :lol:
Will probably end up going with Dreamseller (pretty good reviews and he bubble wraps the box seems).
Have you tried applying a display calibration profile? How are the colors out of the box?
I actually have access to a Spyder4 Pro as well but I appreciate the offer :D
I also think I am going to stick with a single GPU setup for now. Less complication and I can throw another 7950 in when the prices drop after the 8x series releases.
I have an H50 right now and temps are OK...
