    Computer Cabinet 2.0

    So I am redoing my cabinet and made a whole new one. I have a 9900k/32gb for a few cameras(4k), a Xeon E5-2620/16gb for fileserver/backup stuff. I will have 2 motherboards that will be dedicated for mining. I want to have 2 backup miners(Ryzen 3600/1700 16gb) that will run WCG when not mining...

    Single channel vs dual channel

    When running WCG does it matter if you have single, dual, or even quad channel memory? I just reveived my 3600 so the 1700 is going in the server cabinet and I have 2 extra 16gb sticks that I am not going to put into my main machine since I do not even use 32gb much less 64! i wanted to put 1...

    Chinese x99 motherboard

    So my GB x99 MB bit the dust and I did not want to sell the cpu which is a 5960x since I did not know if it worked. Well it works and I bought one of those Chinese MB's on Ebay for about $80. It seems to work fine. I put in an x4 512gb M.2 and ordered 16gb of memory for it. It will be backup...

    4K small text help

    So, I have a 4K 27" lcd Dell monitor. I have been able to change most everything to a larger font. Is there like a master switch that will just make everything a ...bit bigger? I admit, I am getting old and sometimes it displays text that is impossible for me to read without my readers. What...

    Rift hanging hooks

    I bought one of these. I did not really have a place to put it up. I now have a whole room just for me! So I put this kit on it to see how good it is. It worked out beautiful. The cord is up in the air...

    Fallout 4 VR only for Vive?

    I was reading that they are going to remake Fallout 4 into VR using the core game. So they are going to lose quite a bit of money they could be making from the Oculus crowd. I read something about a lawsuit from Zenimax or some crap. Who cares. I thought that they would rather make money than...

    WCG not getting work

    Last night Skill ask for some help on WCG. So I selected WCG and it grabbed 1 work unit, which I though was odd, but went to bed. This morning it had no work available. I checked the settings on the website and the program. Re-loaded WCG and still will not get any work. I tried Einstein and...

    Rift sensor location

    I got my replacement sensor in today along with a usb 3.0 powered cord. I have 2 sensors in front and I put the 3rd directly behind me on the wall instead of to the side. I think it tracks much better when I am turned away from the front sensors. The side back position seemed to have a dead...

    Gigabyte Mb return

    My GB X99 SLI motherboard went bad and this will be the first MB I have returned. 2011-v3 are too expensive to just toss it. I am hoping that I don't get the dreaded "Your pins were bent, you get nothing" routine I have read about on other threads. I will update how it goes!

    Just finished Arizona Sunshine

    I have to say it was a very awesome game. The mechanics worked good, shooting was great and the scenery was well done. I played on free walk mode and never had any problems so those are the games I will be looking for in the future. I have some non VR games that I haven't played, but after...

    EVGA GTX 760 died....Again

    So as the title states I got back a card which seems to be as good as the last one.. Which for all I know is the same card with a different sticker. So I have been gaming on an old 5870 which at least works. Screw EVGA, so here are 2 options, unless somebody has something better. 1080 gaming...

    XFX 5850 to EVGA 760 SC

    I finally bought a new video card! I will give the 5850 to one of the kids. It did all I needed but I couldn't resist the upgrade bug. I even decided to play with PhysX, even though not many titles support it. I don't think a CPU upgrade would of done anything for me, so GPU upgrade...

    Server 2012 NIC teaming

    Hiya, I just had a question on the NIC teaming in 2012 server. Does it increase bandwidth in addition to load balancing and failover? I also assume that you would need like a SSD to test and see how fast it goes?(I tried it with a SSD on one end and 7200 disk on another and got a bit over...

    Just saw the ultrabook commercial.

    I had never seen the Ultrabook that is a tablet and a laptop. That is pretty sweet and has the power of a laptop. Sure its heavier, but wow it has a nice screen and has the best of both worlds.

    Running internet explorer on linux
