    Vertagear SL5000 Unboxing & Build

    Received the Vertagear SL5000 in Back/Red today. Thought I'd share the unboxing, build and initial quality review. To preface, when the big brown truck arrived and mister delivery man wheeled it up to my garage I was a bit apprehensive to sign for it. The box was in not that good of a...

    Going dark

    It was a good run for a bit, but I had to shut'em down last night. At less than $0.90/day per 1080ti it's just not profitable. What to do with a stack of 1080ti's. Might build some budget gaming rigs for my nieces and nephews.

    Edgerouter ER-X-SFP suddenly stopped port forwarding

    Like the title says. I have an Edgerouter ER-X-SFP that suddenly stopped port forwarding. All of it. Running the latest version 1.10.0. I've tried deleting all port forward entries and reapplying them. Deleting them and doing DNAT with a firewall policy. I'm testing via Anyone...

    Seasonic Prime Ultra 1000 Platinum strange noise

    Installed a new Prime Ultra 1000 Platinum today and the unit is making a faint high pitched click/tick noise about every 1-2 seconds. It's barely noticeable, but still audible. Anyone experience anything like this? The unit seems to be working fine otherwise. Does not matter if the hybrid fan...

    Using nsgminer with my sig rig to mine FTC. Currently I'm only getting around 340 KH/s, and I feel it should be higher. The other problem is I have a ~20% invalid rate. Current config: nsgminer.exe --neoscrypt -g 1 -w 128 -I 18 --gpu-engine 1060 --gpu-memclock 1600 GPU loads up to 100% and...

    Sound card recommendations

    Apparently, the on board audio on my mobo is starting to show signs of crapping out. I only use the optical audio out going to a Sony receiver. At first I thought the receiver was going bad. That's not the case. Plugged a blu-ray player up to via optical and it works just fine. Plug it back in...

    Reconfigure virtual machine taking forever

    ESXi 5.5, cisco blade hosts, K2 all flash storage. Just recently, doing something as mundane as adding space to a vdisk, is now taking 34-50 minutes to complete. This used to take seconds, if that. The progress bar does move, but damn. It shouldn't take this long, as hasn't ever. Anyone see...

    Cisco ASAv CPU usage disparity

    We're running a ASAv v9.5(2)2 in ESXi 5.5 environment. What's odd is that vCenter is showing high CPU usage, 80-95%, while the ASAv itself is only showing 25-35% CPU usage. Has anyone seen this before? That's quite a large disparity in usage and I'm not sure if that's normal or not. Anyone...

    EdgeRouter ER-X-SFP backed up config is lacking CLI entries

    Just like the title says, whatever I do via CLI and commit is not represented in the backed up config files. My worry is that I'd have to restore a config at some point and everything I've done va CLI will need to be re-done. This is crazy if those entries are only stored in volatile memory and...

    P2V Server 2K3

    Have two standalone servers, both running 2k3, that I need to P2V. Run in to all kinds of problems when doing this. Is there a trick I'm not doing? I've done a dozen or so 2k8 R2 servers with no issue, but these 2k3 servers are being a pain in the ass. And, no, we can't upgrade them at this...

    Roku 4

    Have any of the bugs been worked out of the new Roku 4? I bought one at release and the fan was ridiculously loud at times, it would freeze up requiring resets (6 times in 1 day) and sometimes the interface would double in size requiring a reset. I need a H.265 compatible player to use with...

    Going 2560x1440 .. not sure which card to get

    Trying to stay in the $350 price range to run a 2560x1440 panel. I guess my options are 970, 390 or 290x. Looking for suggestions. I'm leaning towards the 970. But, I guess they all run around the same depending on the game. I mostly play FPS, so.

    Eqaullogic PS4100 controller battery failed

    Have a PS4100 where one of the controllers is showing a battery failure. This is causing it go in to write through mode and decreasing performance. Any way to manually fail the controller over to the secondary controller since it doesn't seem to be doing it on it's own.

    27" for gaming

    Currently have a Westinghouse 22W2 TN panel 22" 16:10. Personally, I like that aspect ratio. I'm not a fan of the 16:9. That being said, no, I give shits not about color reproduction, or whatever the hell else people complain about. I game with it. TN works for me currently. 1920x1080 would also...

    EMC VNX5400

    Anyone have any experience with these? We're looking to upgrade our storage and this looks promising from the specs alone. Our data sets are large. 5-100 GB databases, 10-200 GB attachment databases that aren't compressible. I know an all flash array would be ideal, but the pricing just isn't...

    Pernix FVP possible bug

    I don't know if anyone else here uses FVP, but I thought I'd post about a possible bug that could compromise your VM's that are being accelerated. We have what appears to be either a flaky SSD card or the driver for the card is not functioning properly. Mind you this has been in place for 6...

    Creating a cluster

    We need to add our production VM's to a cluster. Can this be done during the day? Will this affect the VM's availability and disrupt accessibility by our clients? Or should we wait until the evening to do this? My google-fu only turns up answers on the actual creating of the cluster, but not...

    Fusion-IO ioCache

    School me on these Fusion-IO ioCache cards. Are they worth putting in each of our 3 hosts? Will they make that much of an IO difference to the SAN datastores? $7,500 a card plus software and licensing is a bit steep if it's not going to do much. I understand they're more for burst traffic...

    SQL performance over 1GB iSCSI

    Migrated VM to new host, now slow bad performance

    As the title says. Last night we migrated a VM from one host to another. Both hosts are HP 580G7's. Only difference is one host is using E7-4850's and the new host is using E7-4830's. Allocated the same 4 vCPU's and bumped up the memory from 24 to 32 BG. Now, that VM is showing near 100% CPU...
