Thought this might be fun. Who can put together the highest CPU PassMark per dollar system?
Has to be parts that are available, say at least 10+ available on eBay. We could include entire systems but for now, I’ll just start out with a CPU/motherboard combo copied from a recent LTT video...
My Corsair AX 850 from September 2010 is still running strong. Has been in almost continuous use for a decade albeit at probably 100 watt typical load at idle. Have thought about replacing it but hard to get rid of something that works.
Out of nowhere, my LG 27UD58 appears to have died. I get a flickering screen as soon as I turn it on regardless of input or even without anything connected. Sometimes I can get the on screen menu to come up but as soon as I close out of it, it's back to the flickering. Any ideas? I couldn't find...
I currently have the following system:
128GB DDR4 ECC RAM
CSE 846 chassis
2x80GB SSD mirror boot
Chenbro RM31616 as JBOD
Storage is currently configured as follows:
2x 1 pool with 12x RAIDZ3 vdev
Tank1 is using...
I know I know, refurbished hard drives?! But I was considering picking up a few of these for a 6-drive RAIDZ2. Usually HGST drives run for many years. Anyone have any experiences with these drives or similar? Easystore deals have been scarce lately.
I assume there will eventually be a Geforce driver cutoff point like LTSB and I don’t wanna have to deal with that. Also getting LTSC activated is more of a pain in the ass, even if you purchase a key, and is sort of a grey area if that’s legit.
For a computer I plan to basically use like an...
Interesting. You may consider something like this.
Gorilla Grip Heavy Duty Premium 24 x 14 Inch Wire Shelf Liners, Set of 3, Value Pack, Waterproof, Plastic Liner for Wired Metal Rack Shelving and Cabinets Shelves, Kitchen, Garage, Charcoal...
I’m planning a 10th gen system.
There are some nice improvements in the midrange imo.
Better ITX boards and all CPUs have hyperthreading.
Have a preorder in for the Gigabyte Z490 ITX and waiting on the 10600K to go on sale.
My situation is somewhat less common, I’m taking the gaming GPU out...
I agree, and being one of those people bucking the bandwagon, I’ll share my reasons for building some recent new Intel systems.
Main PC is a Xeon 2288G with 32GB ECC RAM. Not used for gaming, currently using the integrated GPU. The reasons I chose this over a Ryzen build were I wanted verified...
Planning to finish the following system this weekend, do you guys think it is feasible?
Case: Fractal Nano
PSU: EVGA SFX with Silverstone bracket
MB: Gigabyte Z390
RAM: 16GB b-die 3200MHz C14
GPU: MSI Ventus 2080 RTX OC
I’m hoping for a 5.2GHz overclock on the CPU. For cooling I...
I bought one but still on the fence about this vs a 3600. My main hang up with ryzen is the availability of ITX motherboards and the high prices of X570 ones especially. But man what an upgrade path. However for a secondary system that really just needs to be good at gaming I think the 9600K...
