I gave away my old Dell R610 to some college students about 6 months ago so they could get into IT with something to play with.
I figured the itch was gone. But I picked up a Dell R730 w/ 128gb and 2x E5-2680V4 14core/28thread, has 4 x 960GB SSD's in it.
$1400 or so, seemed to be fairly...
Is there a set markdown for items before they go extinct on the site?
Like, if you see it at 50% its probably the first markdown, because the max markdown goes up to 70%?
Do they do markdowns on set days?
If you're in the market for some NAS or Enterprise SSD's, there's a few WD Red's in 2TB and
some WD Gold's in 2TB for about 50% of market prices floating on the site.
I picked up a monitor a few days ago for $25 (just a vga for servers) and that was a welcome addition, damn kids broke my...
Debating on what direction I want to go.
Considering 2 x HP Microserver Gen10+ units running ESXI, but it appears they are rather limited @ 64GB each.
Or, just getting my big boy pants on, and just grabbing a nice 1u unit with an Epyc 7302 or 7402 and 256GB and a
shit ton of SSD's in it...
Since I just started at a place thats a Fortinet shop, that 80E is a great way for me to learn on the fly without blowing shit up.
1/2 the price of Amazon for the hardware only, the fact you get a year of Fortiguard with it, for that, is stupid, its a better deal than the 50e.
Its for my gf's son, building a PC for him for Xmas, he's on a like 3rd gen Intel laptop I scavanged together for him.
All he does is play Roblox and surf Pornhub, so that might work.
Whatcha want for it?
Appreciate the input on that. I kinda felt that way. I bought a board, and case for my gf's son in prep to upgrade, now I might just hold off till next generation and drop a 3600 in his system once the new chips go on sale.
I mean, I'm doing 150fps in CoDMW, and thats about all I play right...
If you're wanting to buy cards to churn for coins. Radeon 5700 series are the best bang for the buck.
If you can find a 2070 Super close to their price, it would win on a 1:1 battle, but you can score a 5700 used for probably under $300 USD now.
So I have the following for sale.
4 x 4GB Corsair Vengeance 16GB total kit DDR4-2133 (see pics for labels) - $45 for all 4 SOLD to dbwillis, payment accepted, shipment pending, tracking # provided by Paypal
2 x 8GB Mushkin Silverline 16GB total kit DDR4-2133 $40 for both
1 x Ubiquiti USG...
I picked up a fleabay mini tower, dropped a 4 port NIC into it and went with Untangle, swapped out a USG Pro4, very much worth the upgrade. Total cost: $130 with Home Pro license of Untangle.
Within the first 15 minutes of setting it up, I noticed one of the kids was using Bittorrent and...
If I couldn't see an obvious issue at this point. I'd rip everything out of the case, sit it on the table, and start going part by part
till I could recreate this problem. But I'm old school, and remember a time when you could short out boards with standoffs if you didn't
use them cute paper...
3700x with 32GB, 5700XT, Phantek case all strapped to the Asus x570-P (non pro). I got the 5700xt off Ebay / Newegg refurb, but it was brand new in box, even had the gigabyte security stickers still sealed. So. All in all, I dropped about $1400. If I woulda tested the 5700 further, I mighta...
System is together, did minor tweaking to get the memory inline at 3200 speeds, but otherwise, its cookin with gas.
I have the R5700 still and I might have saved it. I didn't see any scorched spots from the damage, so I dropped it into the system and it powered up.
The funny part was, I...
My board has 24 pin ATX, 4 pin and 8 pin aux connectors for CPU. My 3700x wouldn't boot on my x570 board till I plugged all of them in. It would light the LED and spin the fan for about 5 seconds, then just die out.
So, make sure all your cables are plugged in
Chili Cases was another aluminum case mfg. They made the mini-tower case with a single 5.25 that was 1/4" aluminum panels.
I dunno what I ever did with the one I polished to a mirror finish and then did in red, but I miss that little bastard. I probably took it apart and
tossed it in the trash...
Pretty much my direction at this point.
So far I have the case. Phanteks Enthoo TG series
And I snatched up a x570 Asus Prime-P for the board.
I wasnt looking for a super high end board and its color scheme fit my goal with that also.
I have a complete set of the Razer Stormstroopers items...
There really isn't anything outside of what I detailed there. The 32GB might be overkill, but its what I came from, so to stay within the range of what I worked with previously.
I've always been a build to the longevity. The system in my sig was 6 ish years old and while I was planning on...
So, I had a major fuckup. While cleaning up my PC room to prepare for future job improvements (working from home instead of at office)
I fucked up.
Knocked a cup over, cup went into the top of my case, fans at the top of the case, Radeon 5700 below it...well...the rest is history. It sprayed...
I have the i7 - 1050 version of this, it plays the games I wanna play flawlessly.
This will be a solid laptop, it runs hot tho so get a cooling pad under it. Once I did that, it can run full bore for 10-12 hours nonstop gaming without a hitch
Take it from someone with a vast amount of knowledge on this issue.
Its not easy and it won't be cheap. I sunk probably 35-50k dollars in design and work and still wasn't able to get a product to market.
Just because you think you can, doesn't mean you can. I was making pretty solid money...
You can apparently buy up to 2 per CC / Paypal acct, and up to 6 can be applied to an account at once.
This is good for new and current customers, so if you have a Lastpass Premium acct already, well, here ya go
your renewal has arrived.
