    PF Sense test box build

    Well I got a small update. The system is pretty much on line. A few settings being figured out still but overall on line. My boss is no longer at the mercy if the POE or even the old firewall. I gave him a few minutes of help every week or so testing outbound and bound communications while...

    3700X: High Temp Underloaded...

    I thought they were getting on the warm side if you ask me. However I have not overclocked any thing really since owning a Q6600 Quad core in 2010. Everything has been run pretty much at stock clocks. Then again I stopped gaming not needing overclocks on things. However I do like how these...

    3700X: High Temp Underloaded...

    I'm running 68-74 C depending on the work load and freq. When I checked this morning I was at around 66 C running just under 3.9 GHz. Stock cooler but IC7 paste. Fan speed is around 2100 RPM just barely audible. When I PBO the CPU, I shoot into the upper 70s and low 80s on the stock...

    PF Sense test box build

    I guess it will be up to whatever my boss decides. 3 coworkers and I were laid off this morning due to low call volume and no incoming sales, no business in general. Management is hoping they are going to be able to call us back in in a few weeks or less once things settle. Simply put, I...

    PF Sense test box build

    Update!!! We got it working this afternoon. The boss gave it another shot this morning. It seemed like we were doing everything right to get it working. He gave in and said if I could source the part, buy it to verify proof of concept. At work, one of our vendors is an electronics supply house...

    PF Sense test box build

    Yes PFSense sees both Nics and during one our builds, we were in the web portal. IPs were assigned on both sides WAN with the ISP and the LAN have a internal test format. We still were not able to get out of the box.

    FAH has COVID-19 projects

    Running my new build so far. Finally running on the Prime X570-Pro board with a R7 3700X CPU. This thing just chews on this work. I did run PBO for a day but I was not to happy with the high temps and not much of a gain in speed. I think I ran about 10° C hotter for about 250mhz in clock...

    PF Sense test box build

    Hey everyone, Since we are pretty much dead at work but I can still go in, my boss wanted me to focus on getting a test box built for PF sense. The budget is -$0.00. Effectively, I am looking around at 10 year old computers at this point to perform a proof of concept sand box. Now I...

    FAH has COVID-19 projects

    My boss tried F@H for the first over the weekend. He's like I now understand what the hell you were talking about at the Friday morning meeting about computing power and Covid19. I think he has 3 rigs going full time. 2 in the office and 1 at home.

    I have been with VOIP.ms for a while now. Couple of early on hiccups mainly in the set up. It has been reliable and much cheaper than what we were dealing with. As matter of fact, we ditched the TV service and switched to Youtube TV as our trial seemed to work perfect for what we wanted the...

    Ryzen 9 3900x inconsistently posting

    FYI, I just performed an update on my chipset drivers. There is a new AMD version out dated 3/19/2020. It seemed to help out my Ryzen master software. The system seemed to be a bit more happier overall. However still rocking a 4.0 GHZ clock speeds on all 8 cores. PBO seems to be happier.

    Ryzen 9 3900x inconsistently posting

    Lakados I installed a R7 3700X tonight on my Asus ROG B450-F Gaming. Stock cooler but PBO settings. It's running just fine. I am wondering if it is something else with your board. Did you play with the voltages as some have suggested?

    Performed a little upgrade this afternoon. Mohr Cohrs! More Threads! I did it right before the lock down and also it kind of fell into my hands quickly. It was a tale of fate as my wife asked me if her monitor would work with her new computer for work. About 2 months ago my wife's employer...

    FAH has COVID-19 projects

    I have not gotten Covid19 WU lately for my GPU. However, between Boinc and F@H my CPU and GPU have been getting supplied with work. My hope is the components are being put to go use. We as citizens of the US and beyond are able to put our excess cycles to good use and find the break...

    FAH has COVID-19 projects

    Ok That explains it. I knew F@H was using the GPU for computations when it can get them. I should look into projects that will grab GPU idle time. As for Covid 19 on F@H, I got 3 WU and it cranked them out like it was nothing. However, the servers are a bit overwhelm right now. I am letting...

    FAH has COVID-19 projects

    Yeah I was using BOINC with R@H. I don't know but it was not using my GPU just CPU. However, I am figuring everything is getting hit up big time. The F@H forum was saying how much of an outreach has taken place in the last 5 or so days. I was actually thinking about using some extra coin for...

    The PC community has been kicking the sh!t out of the WUs and servers. They cannot issue WU fast enough. Personally I have not folded in ages. I figured I would give my Ryzen 2600 a workout. Its a slow go but you will get work.

    Ryzen 9 3900x inconsistently posting

    That is what I was thinking. The board might be able to handle the higher TDP CPUs like the 3800X and 3900X properly. Could this be the VRM design, components, a little bit of this and that, something else? Possibly. I know your board seems to have a different power delivery than my B450F...

    Ryzen 9 3900x inconsistently posting

    It may require the extra power. I should have clarified my previous post with VRM layout and components used as part of the main board build. I have been in and out of the PC building game. On these newer systems that are running multiple cores, they are requires better power delivery...

    Ryzen 9 3900x inconsistently posting

    Lakados I would check which slots which RAM is in especially when you . Usually A2 and B2 are usually recommended for the RAM dimms. It could be something like putting the RAM in the wrong configuration like A1 and B1 or B1 and B2. Something like that. However, I have a feeling it might be...

    Ah OK. That's interesting to know. I seen a few other ATAs out there. Grandstream seems to have descent support and reputation. I may have to check with my Amazon account and see if the return window is still open for this and off load the Cisco part. As for the link, I figure I will be...

    Unfortunately, it is a SPA 112. What was the problem with them? It seemed to be a good choice from what i could find on it via web and user reviews. I know we have some weird Cisco based phones in work that are on some non standard protocol from years ago. When the switch for those phones...

    Hello! I am looking into this VoIP.ms. Looks pretty good. During the holiday season, I snuck in a Cisco ATA into the Amazon cart. I have been pretty busy with life in general to look into most of this. However, If I can pay around 60 a year to keep the number, still send the occasional...

    what to do with old Platter drives

    We have a local recycler that will pay money for the hard drives. I would guess if they are cleaned up and you can handle them for for a few bucks to tthem. Also I generally drill the drive and handle it off for a buck or two more to my recuycling price. This guy also handles main boards...

    Just opened my E mail for a Ryzen 1700X at $349. 50 dollar drop and it has not been a week since launch. That is not boding well for AMD here. OF MC is a hair over stocked on these. I might have to grab a 7700K instead of the 6700K if the price is going to be sub $300. However, poster...

    Microcenter Skylake I7-6700K $279.99 In store only!

    Ryzen will be a good deal once the supply chain settles. However, AMD is making a case to getting back into the CPU market. I hope the best for them. Like anything in the tech, give it 6 months and thing start to settle and build up unless it's a Nitendo Wii. LOL Anyway, I wished I had seen...

    You Can Now Put Windows 98 on Your Wrist

    The question here is.... Why would you really want to? The last time I came across 95/98/2K(yeah I know 2K was different) was about 2 years ago. I had to break off the rust to figure out what was going on since the last time I even used a 98 machine was about 12 years ago. The only reason...

    I thought about this direction briefly. If I go this direction, I might want to wait for Rysen to launch. This should drop the price of the components lower. However a brief search on AMD 970 boards resulted in a no go for ECC memory. I kept seeing Non Ecc DDR3. Chip wise, I figure any...
