    x299 raid5 to a x99 raid5

    You'll have to set the sata controller to raid mode, I've moved old intel software raids around but usually to newer hardware so can't say it'll work 100% but it probably will show up.

    Hey! Please help me choose a stationary server for storing data.

    Since you provided no information, ask your software vendor what sizing you should need.

    SR-2 optimization thread not loading

    was looking for it from an old bookmark since it was basically the only/best sr-2 oc thread, they do show up if you click back through the distributed computing page though which is where I saw the 2nd one I thought it was originally...

    Another AssRock Board Bites the Dust?

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    Cool, does reminds me a lot of PSU just barely squeak by on their efficiency ratings lol. My old ABS 1100W was like that. I had issues with that one cutting out so I replaced it with a 1250.

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    I'm sure manufacturers are really smiling now that the general pop knows they can buy undersized PSUs and run them over spec just fine lol. The GN testing though, it just reminds me of car audio guys hooking up shitty subs to huge amps and blowing them up for memes at comps. I mean it's cool...

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    I pulled out mine from the corner and it does fall within the serial number range so I shot Newegg an email back, will see what they say if I can get a refund or replacement. Since I'm not using it I'd rather get a refund though.

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    Got an email from Newegg about it. To be honest I haven't even looked at it since I got it with my 3090, I guess I should see what the serial number is.To be honest I haven't even looked at it since I got it with my 3090, I guess I should see what the serial number is.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I am guessing applepay did a antifraud chargeback? If that is the case then I'm not surprised unfortunately, pretty much every company will instantly close your account if you do a chargeback no matter what the cause. That's almost why cards are better since they do pending charge holds...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    This is the same on my old PA329Q Asus proart monitor's profiles, it was pretty stupid. I mean I can understand some, but brightness??? That thing had bad issues with one half the screen bugging out too so I don't use it anymore.

    Computer in separate room (suggestions welcome)

    Corning makes some optical thunderbolt 3 cables which you could use a thunderbolt 3 dock with, amazon makes them seem not super reliable though. Alternatively you could daisy chain some thunderbolt devices and use cheaper cables lol.

    Recommendations for audio card for listening to Classical Music?

    20 years or so ago one of the home theater mags did a 3-way blind test for the reviewers and it was pretty interesting. The same guys also hooked up some bookshelf speakers to a 2kw amp or something and caught them on fire as well, ah the "good old days" of hifi mags haha. I kinda miss my B&K...

    Intel introduces new high-performance graphics brand: Arc

    It will be interesting to see how the driver development for these cards is, if it's like 11th gen series with no graphics drivers for like 2-3 weeks or their vast amount of things they have just abandoned support for like VROC then it won't go anywhere.

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    Not having the option to make the taskbar small mode is definitely a real estate omission if you don't use autohide which for servers is a bit annoying.

    Case for retro hardware

    I don't really mind that to be honest lol. I like it more than the plastic rgb covered junk we have these days anyway. At the time that was released though I was running a black soyo dragon which was one of the few black boards back then.

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

They were like what the hell pictures are these? The person only did it to download apps they couldn't I...

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    I think I paid 199 dollars for my original PNY AGP 6800 256 MB at CompUSA back when they came out. It was quite a nice upgrade from my Geforce 3 (original non Ti model) that was $299 when I got it lol. The fan on the GF3 died so I bought a cheapo quadro and did a heatsink swap on it lol.

    Do you overclock your gpus? Edit fixed gramar

    FF14 always shit itself out with graphics overclocks for whatever reason so I stopped bothering, my GTX 570 I had to actually underclock its factory OC. Only that game too, never had issues with anything else lol.

    ASUS Prime Z590-M Plus + Radeon compatibility issues?

    I've run into some Asus boards not outputting bios display via DP and only via HDMI, if you're using DP it may be worth a shot to try the HDMI output.

    installed Xeon E 1680 v2 want to OC advice please?

    Around 44x is limit for these, I had one that went higher but I think I toasted it a bit with too much voltage and now it doesn't run that high anymore lol. JS's suggestion is probably a solid one.

    Who ran Haswell-E for a long time or is still running it?

    My office PC I have a 5820k I built on release with some 2667 c14 hyperx 4gb sticks on Asrock X99M Killer. Originally ran a 4ghz simple oc but bumped it up to 4.4 2 years ago or so, got win 8.1 on it but no issues with it at all.

    TRX40 owners and in particular Gigabyte

    Gigabyte dual bios likes to switch to backup bios automagically, that may be what happened to you. I have my x570 xtreme set to single bios mode but I'm not sure if your board has that.

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Most people don't actually read things that pop up for sure, we got a few calls at my office asking about this people were like I clicked a box and my pc rebooted and it says upgrading windows. My parents got the popups to upgrade on their computers and I told them to wait and I upgraded them...
