    ESXi 5.5 help

    I'm not sure exactly how to fix this issue, so hopefully you guys can point me in the right direction. I had an ESXi whitebox running 5.5 just fine on a USB drive attached to an AMD system. I forklifted the USB drive and drives into an Intel i5 system and at first the system was booting...

    Cheapest way to get quad core + DDR3 support?

    I have a HP NL40 that has been doing admirably as a ESX 5 host server but I want to host some game servers on it and the performance has been...lacking.

    Starbound available for preorder!

    Hopefully they'll be able to execute their launch, unlike SimCity. I preordered a 4 pack! I figured since it was an independent and they're using humblebundle as their purchase system, it'd be okay.

    Can't install Bit Torrent client or uTorrent

    I've been thinking about this and I just can't come up with a good answer. I have a Windows 7 virtual in my ESX box and it's been running just fine for some time. The only issue I'm having is that neither the Bit Torrent client or uTorrent just flat out refuses to install. I've downloaded...

    Maximum RAM upgrade?

    I know this is less a VC question, but since its for my ESXi host, I'm thinking I'm in the right place to ask this. I want to upgrade the RAM in my box to 16 GB from 8 GB but I'm shackled at the moment to my skt 775 CPU. Is there any chipsets that support a C2Q processor and more than 8 GB...
