    Budget AMD build

    I just picked up this one, I think it's pretty nice but it is a bit bigger than I was originally looking for. lian-li

    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    Many of the vintage Technics AVR's have optical and pre-outs, but have not seen a stereo receiver with either. I use an old stereo Technics reciever to drive an unpowered sub off the "B" channel and the main speakers off "A" since both can be active. That doesn't help with your optical in...

    Recommendations for a backup server

    I am running a DL360 with 24TB DAS and MSL2024 library attached to it. I use Robocopy to copy data to the DAS on a schedule and let Windows 2012R2 dedupe take care of the backups to disk. From there I use VEEAM to encrypt and backup to LTO7 in the MSL. It's a bit overkill and power...

    price/performance AVR recommendations

    I bought the Denon X3600 but I got a heck of a deal on it. At the time Crutchfield had it for $200 off and I had another $300 in Best Buy credit so I got it for $599 shipped next day free. I really like it. ARC works perfectly with my Sony TV so I only have to use the TV remote to control the...

    Budget AMD build

    I would agree with pendragon1, go for a 550w or 600w PS at least. Gives you headroom .

    NAS Storage Recommendations

    Stay on the spinners. Even if you look to bond a couple of NIC ports together you still won't see much of an advantage with SSD's on it if any.

    Looking for a HP LTO-4 tape drive docment

    If the computer can see the drive you could use Library and Tape Tools to see if it can pull the codes. It can also do some diagnotic tests and flash the firmware.

    HP MSL2024 Tape library firmware Firmware is in that folder.

    Anybody have 10gb home network here?

    I'm working on getting my Brocade switches set up properly. Got plenty of DAC's and fiber cable to get it done, but I'm a n00b with networking beyond the basics so doing VLAN's and POE properly is taking a bit of time as I only have a little time each day to do anything with it. Fun stuff.

    Yes I do. I have access to firmware direct from HPE. Send me the model number (or part number)...

    Yes I do. I have access to firmware direct from HPE. Send me the model number (or part number) of the library and what kind of drives you have (LTO4,5,etc and Fiber or SAS) and I can pull the firmware.

    Anybody have 10gb home network here?

    I have a Brocade ICX6610-24P and a VDX-6470 as well as a 4 port 10Gbe HP Procurve that has 48x 1Gb ports. I don't know that I'll use the 6740 since it's 40Gb and I don't have any use for that other than as a stack link to the 6610. The 6610 has 8 front 10Gb ports and 4 back 40Gb ports that can...

    HP MSL2024 Tape library firmware

    I can get it for you. Just need the type of drives (SAS vs FC) and the generation of the MSL. I have one with FC LTO7 drives in my home lab.

    A question about a server

    Not sure I'd take the G7. If you really want it you could get an MSA 12 drive shelf and hook it up via a PCIe SAS controller. I have a similar setup with a DL360 Gen9. It does take a lot of power though. I could kill-a-watt the setup and get an "idle" wattage for you since I don't have any...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    The first episode was interesting, I watched it on Youtube. It didn't capture me enough to want to pay for CBS All Access on top of the other subscriptions I already have. I haven't seen enough of Discovery to render an opinion there. I'll either wait until it hits OTA or another service (or...

    AMD Releases the Radeon Adrenalin Edition 20.2.2 Drivers

    These newer drivers have been causing issues with my RX480 8GB card in games like Fallout 4. Lots of stuttering and lockups that don't happen in previous revisions before the Adrenaline drivers. I'll give these new ones a try and cross my fingers! I am keeping my eyes open for good deals on...

    PCIe meltdown

    I worked for Cargill Steel for a while. There were a few times I wondered how those PC's even worked anymore when I had opened a couple up to see about RAM upgrades the case was full of steel dust up to the level of the CPU heatsink; sometimes all you could see of the motherboard was the...

    GIGABYTE Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi AMD Ryzen Mobo Review @ [H]

    I got the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB kit for my build. The XMP settings didn't seem to ever do anything automatically like I thought it should so it always showed as 2133MHz. I decided to force it to profile 1 and now it shows as 2999MHz and seems to be running just fine like that. I haven't...

    GIGABYTE Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi AMD Ryzen Mobo Review @ [H]

    I got mine set to not be on now, but was annoying at first. You can set those things to be on even when sleeping/off. I hate that my monitor flashes a little blue LED when it goes to sleep, if it was steady on it would be less of a problem since it is small and really doesn't light up much...

    X470 ECC Support

    I had a compatibility problem with a FusionIO IODrive2 1.2TB card. Couldn't boot with it in the 3rd 16xPCIe slot or the 2nd 16x PCIe slot in Gen3 mode. It only works with the PCIe mode set to Gen2 for the first 2 PCIe slots. Why I imagine it didn't work in the 3rd slot due to that card...

    Aorus Gaming 7 Wifi - question about PCIe power

    I have a question about power supplied to the PCIe bus for add-in cards. I know by spec it should provide 75w power to the PCIe slots, but have run across things where the MB manufacturer will share that 75w between slots. This effectively means I can't put in a card that requires 75w if more...

    GIGABYTE Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi AMD Ryzen Mobo Review @ [H]

    So, with this MB the power and reset buttons are lit all the time unless you go into the BIOS and tell it to turn off all LED's when off or in sleep mode. I think it was under the power settings. Those 2 little lights lit up my wall and were super annoying when trying to sleep. So far I do...

    File Server CPU

    I was running PlayOn on an i3-3220 and had the problem with going forward or backward. Haven't checked that yet on the i5 since I just swapped it in last week and haven't needed to yet.

    Prime Day 2018 Fuels Amazon Sales to 100 million Products in 36 Hours

    I bought a few things. They had a good sale on MicroSD 128GB cards, got a Ryzen 7 and MB, and a few little odds and ends that I needed.

    First AMD build in 12 years.

    Looks good. I really like the sleeve job, I may check into doing that myself even if the last time I tried (many years ago) looked terrible.

    NEWB to RAID setup little help please

    The only reason a backup software would delete files is if you have the data protection set to expire after a certain length of time. Even then, most software won't necessarily remove the data but the catalogue that keeps track of it will have entries removed that point to the data. Many do an...

    File Server CPU

    I run an i5-3470 with PlayOn and 16GB RAM. I can stream 2 HD movies as long as the server isn't having to do a transcode at the same time (like say a couple of MKV's instead of MP4's). Some of your limit is going to be what NIC and hard drives you are using. Good quality components should...

    Which Ryzen?

    I got a 2700 off the Amazon deal for Prime Day. Just need to go find some RAM now. edit: which unfortunately being a new sign-up, I can't get from the for sale forum though I see Vader has just what I need.../sigh
