    $50 + shipping: 48 Core Opteron 4P rig

    I know it's only two years late but I can give you some preliminary numbers. I just loaded ESXI 6.5 back onto it. Booting was ~350-415 W, idle ESXI (no workloads) was ~257 Also, finally got some RAM for it. Populated it with 32 x4GB dimms

    Opteron 16 Core 3.2Ghz 6380 Engineering Sample Unlocked CPUs

    toast0 Might be worth a look and actually cheaper shipping overseas than from within the US.

    MS Office 2021 Pro - Techspot store - $35

    I found open/libre would still run into issues with formating when opening some MS docs. This is the price I would be OK paying to use it and is nice to have on hand. Thanks!!

    $50 + shipping: 48 Core Opteron 4P rig

    If you know anybody. Only thing now is I'm pretty sure shipping is going to be stupid. I want to say it was 40-50$ when I got it from you. I checked Fedex to Washington state yesterday, if it'll fit into one of their flat rate boxes under 50lbs, it's 35$ but if it's retail, it's 150$!!

    $50 + shipping: 48 Core Opteron 4P rig

    Going to bump this since it's the same rig. Would anybody be interested in this setup? I still have it and it does work, it's just not getting any use anymore. I did change it to 4x4gb sticks of ram as one of the og sticks failed I think. Also, I would have to see if I have a spare small...

    OC an old 4770k with a few questions

    I will second/third, whatever it's at, to de-lidding if you can. From what I understood at the time, the IHS was the issue, even repasting didn't do much due to gaps. I've been running de-lid with 4.2Ghz ?v. I'm not sure which one to reference, so here is a screenshot. I just let the Asrock...

    Pfsense WAN load balancing CPU requirements

    Thanks! That is good to know they don't work properly. dslreports says it cannot connect to all four test servers and that it's my fault :) I did try from 3 different browsers on 2 machines with the same result. Using my phone on mobile data, it did appear to work though. The rest of the...

    Pfsense WAN load balancing CPU requirements

    I agree with you, they have a much newer CPU and it's dedicated to pfsense. I don't see an issue either. I was looking at systems with the same cpu. All good. I'm just trying to give some data since it's mostly what you find on the internet/or guessing. I think I got it working, although the...

    Pfsense WAN load balancing CPU requirements

    I agree about the linear speeds, at least on this setup. But it is worth noting the age and specs of my hardware vs what you are using. No baremetal. On some hold HP gear running esxi. Unfortunately, I don't have the same speeds as you to test with but my Spectrum is 400/20 and Verizon is...

    Pfsense WAN load balancing CPU requirements

    Late to the party as usual, but you got me curious now about my setup. I was running active-backup with 2 carries since one was dsl. But I just got Verizon home internet which is comparable to spectrum. I run a pfsense virtualized on a xeon L5638. pfsense has 4 vcpu /8gb ram. Running a...

    WTB: ASUS DOMINUS EXTREME

    If the 128 GB isn't a hard requirement on the Quest 2, I have a 64 GB I can part with. I've been meaning to list it and have been lazy. It's got maybe 10hrs of use and I have the silicone piece FB offered which hasn't been used yet.

    antok86 Any updates? I ordered a pack of 10 resistors and still have 9 left. If you need one to try the fix and aren't in a rush, send me a pm and I can send you a couple. Fixes like this are what make me miss radio shack

    Games to Play with young kids

    Geographical Adventures It's a work in progress, technically free but I think has the potential to be fun, educational, and look pretty decent graphically. I won't claim to know coding, but, in the videos, he covers that as well when he's creating/updating it which could add more educational...

    C'mon! You can't be [H]ard if you don't live on the edge once in a while! There was no way I was buying a similar model to swap the drives into. I'm not sure what I was going to do if the resistor didn't work. Probably call it a loss and try the drives in a different storage device. But, I...

    antok86 Just completed the resistor "fix" and so far it's up and running! Even cleaned (more like chipped and scrapped) the cpu cement and put some new past on and added a 4gb ram stick i had laying around. I wish you the same luck !

    Agreed. Just keep the specs in mind when searching. Not all Synology's are created equal when it comes to their horsepower.

    Qnap NAS died...better alternatives.

    I meant for the warranty piece of it and getting an "official" fix for it, not that it carries a ton of weight these days. But the fact they did offer something when they didn't have to, is worth noting. -I bought mine used about 2years ago from my old boss. It was running great until I did a...

    Qnap NAS died...better alternatives.

    You got lucky? lol. that it was in the extended warranty period. If OP is looking at new gear, this issue shouldn't be a concern but if looking at used too, I would keep an eye out since they aren't under warranty anymore. I think they ended 2017 or 2018.

    Qnap NAS died...better alternatives.

    Depending on your actual issue, It'd be worth looking into the resistor fix. It looks like it may have the exact same issue and has a chance at a second life with a simple resistor. This would potentially give you the time needed to transfer over to a new solution. I will hopefully have my...

    Qnap NAS died...better alternatives.

    Only because I'm feeling the pain now but if going synology, look into the models to see if there are any major flaws? Not necessarily Synology's fault, but still wroth checking. ex. Many products using the Atom C2000 series CPUs (older synology's rs815, ds1415, etc) have a fatal flaw that may...

    The Matrix Resurrections GeForce RTX Custom PC Giveaway

    Backplates look cool. The laptop or left PC would be my pick if there were a choice. Although any of the builds have to be better than my current gaming setup and it would be nice to upgrade. Going old school here. They need to do the work this guy did. The details were awesome...

    Looking for a POE swtich Need some suggestions

    I would look for the SG250 out of those two. The SG200 only supports 802.3af per my searching. The SG250 supports 802.3at but the SG250-26P or SG250-26HP look like they are over budget (SG250-26HP started at $350 on fleabay)...

    10 Gbps from the pole, how do I effectively do this?

    Spitballing here. Could you go something like they did here? Their 'budget' setup was about $325 and was only able to hit 6GBs but you might be able to bring that down some more with some different used equipment and maybe a 2port 10GB to start since that is all you need for the basics. That...

    What POE switch do you use?

    That's a good point. These seem like they would be a good middle ground then. I could still run 2 of them but they would be lower total power being 2 smaller port counts, and not as large a PSU because only 12 ports are POE capable. I started counting ports... I just realized I need to go back...

    What POE switch do you use?

    These cameras can record to DVR I believe but that requires paid software. I'm going to be doing SD card for recording which will lower the bandwidth too only for viewing. The gigabit is because I want to plug in the APs and not be restricted to the 100mb link. Less restricts for future...

    What POE switch do you use?

    Hyper-v, VMware player, or Virtualbox for XP?

    Correct both software accelerated but I was thinking more is still better in this case, at least a little bit since Virtualbox is only 256MB at max. Really depends on what they are doing in the photo editor... but for a 32bit app, I can't imagine it being too demanding on modern hardware.

    Hyper-v, VMware player, or Virtualbox for XP?

    Fair enough. I did mess with VMware player for a couple min. It did feel a little smoother with the same resources allocated. Another thing is it looks like you can allocate much more VRAM (8GB+) over VirtualBox (256MB) which may be necessary with the images being edited.
