I'm battling my ISP regarding broadband speed issues and I've been doing a boat load of testing, I also have a new laptop, which doesn't help as its an unknown factor. This is not the reason for this post but to give a little detail, when I use speedtest.net it threads at 32...
I feel this is a daft question, but I'm stuck in a loop on this and need some help getting out of it.
I'm wanting the most flexibility in expansion and performance. Ultimately I intend to have the following:
2x GTX 1080 (PCIe 3.0 16x)
1x 10gb ethernet...
I'm looking at the Corsair AX860, which I understand is an OEM Seasonic Platinum 860. I'm in the UK so this will be on 230v.
I've raid about coil whine on these PSU's, but this appears to be the earlier production. Does anyone know if this problem still exists? It will bug the...
I have an existing board with LGA 2011-v3 socket, which I'm want to re-purpose. However I'm also wanting to reduce my power consumption, as its a 24/7 box.
I'm considering a E5-2620 v3 or i7-5930K. I cannot find the idle power on the 2630v3 but the TDP is a more reasonable 85W...
I'm struggling to find out how to install stuff within FreeBSD with options using the new Package Management 'pkg install'.
I'm specifically looking at nginx and I've installed using 'pkg install nginx' I also need http_dav and a bunch more modules and if I run 'pkg info nginx' I...
So 6 disks (4TB each), one vDev in RAIDz2 or 2 vDevs in RAIDz1. What are peoples thoughts?
I'm thinking 2 vDevs gives me scope for upgrade, such as expanding the pool by adding multiples of 3 disks... Thoughts?
I know most people are going to shout out "are your crazy go with RAIDz2" because lets face it, that's the new trend... However I have 6x WD Red 4tb and need as much space as possible. I really only need single disk redundancy because there isn't a lot of load and I don't have a...
I own two N40L Microservers and use one with FreeNAS, including 4x3TB WD Reds. I've just gone and bought 5x4TB WD Reds and stuck them on an LSI 9211-8i in the other N40L and been running it though its paces and comparing them side by side.
Its been an interesting experience...
I'm building a new workstation and my plan is to virtualise it.
My original though was to go ATI R9 290x with ESXi, because of the flexibility of using vt-d/vdga however I cannot ignore the performance, heat and power consumption of Nvidia's GTX 970. The cost is also about the same...
So I understand the X99 chipset officially has VT-d support, but can someone please confirm its available on AsRock X99 Extreme?
AsRock are normally VT-d friendly, which is why I'm looking towards them, but confirmation would be nice.
Let me just rant for a moment... I absolutely hate what Microsoft did with the search/indexing features from Vista onwards. Lets face it they broke it... I have never been able to get the same functionality out of search that XP had.
Rant over... So its been a while since I...
I won't bore you with the long story, so I'll get straight to the point. Has anyone done an in-house IPTV setup?
I want to distribute a standard STB around the house and am considering doing this via IPTV and mixing it with XBMC as clients.
I'm needing to backup my file and folder ownerships before I do a mass chown.
I read a post for Ubuntu using:
find `pwd` -printf "%u:%p\n" > /tmp/backup.txt
and to restore:
while IFS=":" read a b; do chown $a $b done < /tmp/backup.txt
This doesn't work for me on...
Stupid questions, but I think discussion points... I understand the 802.11ac is still in draft (5th gen) and is expected to be approved in 2014.
Now whats the deal with Routers like the Asus RT-AC66u. There are...
Anyone know of any good file explorers via a web gui?
I've been playing with Ajaxplorer, but wanting to see alternatives. I want to be able to do a little more than just browse files. I have a need for par2 and rar support.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hi People of the [H]ard kind,
Has anyone used a Live USB of openIndiana?
I'm not interested in the install process but rather how well it works? Or should I say how it works from a use case point of view?
I'm currently using freeNAS and always intended to trial openIndiana for various...
I've searched high and low and cannot find out if the N40L has support for 4TB Hitachi Deskstar HDS724040ALE640 7K4000 disks with stock bios and on-board controller.
Also if anyone has fully populated the 4 bay with these, can you let me know how its been running, temperatures...
I upgraded my Internet to Virgin Media's 100Mb and have been getting some very odd test results while debugging my router's speed.
I have this simple config:
I know there is a lot out there about these 2 drives but I just cannot make up my mind between Seagate's ST3000DM001 and WD WD30EFRX.
4 or 5 of them are going in a NAS using ZFS. I may be connecting to it using iSCSI or NFS for Visualization, so I like having something with better...
I'm looking at VPN tunnels to establish network access from the States. Usual reasons really, that I'm sure I don't need to go into.
I know about the anonymity side of these services and although it will be apart of my decision, it won't be the main reason.
I'm looking at...
I haven't taken my own advice of "not waiting sometimes" and this is defiantly one of those times. I was waiting for the Desire S as I was wanting to go down the Android route. However the Desire S for me has been a let down. Its seems like the same old phone, but with more memory...
I've been looking at the Sandy Bridge i7-2600 and 2600K processors and have spotted that Intel has removed support for VT-d on the 2600K on there marketing material.
I've also read a lot on different forums and sites that state the 2600K doesn't support VT-d. I'm finding it hard...
