    Raid 0 - we all know hard drives die and will but would you do if you did not care ?

    ng4ever how many drives are you thinking of using? if you want redundancy then you need to look at a different raid setup that is a NO to your question above. You need to start over again if you pull a disk/drive describe your intended setup or what gear you have to play with

    Any of these 1000W+ PSUs any good?

    I would go for the larger units if $$$ isn’t an issue corsair, evga would also have some contenders good luck - ohh by the way, are you planning to have anything else in terms of PCIE cards? You only have 24-lanes on the chipset and CPU series, you need to look at Threadripper if you want more...

    Is Windows 10 20H2 the worst windows yet?

    Late to the party here, looking at the OP, with 1000’s messages and many years spent here I am a little surprised to hear that Windows 10 is the worst MS OS ever. all the OS’s have some issues, in particular if you stray of the mainstream equipment list, one reason is a lot easier to deal with...

    Threadripper 3 (3960X) & Win 7 work around?

    Wow - we are out punching here today ! Too much cordial? Probably not helpful! OP Threadripper ,it might work or it might work out of the box but would you even entertain this in a commercial space with no support for the OS etc...and newer technologies since the inception of Win7 could you...

    A couple of questions on CPU threads and clock rate

    What is it you want to achieve? Apart from not upgrading for 5 years? i built the below to last me 10 years with the odd upgrade here and there ;) faster cpu, more cores, faster GPU, more ram, bigger and faster hard drive(s) but other then that keep it as is

    AMD MoBo to support Dual 3090?

    AMD Threadripper 3970X Successor

    I agree with those who have stepped up to the Threadripper platform due to the extra pcie lanes, until I start to do rendering the CPU isn’t the key to this. Hopefully in years to come the 64 core will drop as my need goes up. sure it would have been nice to have had a lower price entry point...

    Need Monitor Advice (1440p vs 4k)

    How Often do you

    Many times when I have new equipment but when that settles down, it can be years before I do it again it is definitely easier these days with a USB key and windows 10 picking up all the drivers more or less unlike the F6 for windows NT 🙄

    I got this from Eddy at Alphacool It always depends on how high the noise can be. For example, a 120mm ST30 radiator can handle up to 300W with a 4000rpm fan. But there is a simple rule you can follow 80W TDP per 120mm radiator space with 600rpm fans 100W TDP per 120mm radiator space with...
