    Well I used Eset to do a scan other night and it came up empty. Didn't find anything. Anyhow site probably was far from legit.

    Just got a Green screen of death with picture of guy in corner giving thumbs up?!!

    Thats true. Felt like a hit and run than outright infection. Anyhow found out after research you could trigger a green screen through a registry hack. So somehow access to my registry was gained. Microsoft is like swiss cheese. Filled with holes.

    Just got a Green screen of death with picture of guy in corner giving thumbs up?!!

    Said Windows Insider but I don't have Windows insider on that machine and had dumb ass picture of some guy looking stupid. Not only that CTRL-Alt-Delete not work. Must have landed on a bad page. Now got to run virus scanners. Great.

    Best encoder to use to compress old movies for Plex server?

    Thats good to know about the 1650. Maybe one day I'll update the 1060. Been using it as a multi use system yes at my girlfriends house playing games when I have time and serving Plex for us to watch movies. So it can adequately handle H265 though wonder if my old raspberry pi would choke on that...

    Best encoder to use to compress old movies for Plex server?

    I used NVenc with h265 on both a 1060 card and a 2080. Good to know about the 1650 super. On the 1060 I’ve been only playing Doom Eternal. Thanks

    Best encoder to use to compress old movies for Plex server?

    Best encoder to use to compress old movies for Plex server?

    All the videos I have in my library were done with HandBrake using H265 8 or 10 bit CPU encoded mostly on an 8 core 9900K system I have. Maybe a few done on the Plex Server but Bluerays take too long. Anyhow as of yesterday I decided on NVenc using the 2080. Only thing is that machine is kind...

    Best encoder to use to compress old movies for Plex server?

    Hi, Glad I checked back here. Wasn't getting notifications in my inbox. Anyhow after experimenting with different formats I found two methods of encoding that worked best. The best was hands down NVenc running off of a 2080 Touring GPU. The runner up was H265 10 Bit cpu encoding. Got to say...

    Hi, I have this Asus Z270 Apex board that I coffee lake modded. It runs a 9700K cpu. Been running ok for almost a year then all of a sudden I think because of a windows update I could no longer get into the desktop anymore. So I reinstalled Windows from usb stick and was fine for a few weeks...

    Best Backup software for Server Essentials 2016?

    Thanks. At the moment considering either AOemi backup, Acronis backup for server, or Macrium Server backup. They all cost between 170 - 275 dollars. The main issue for me is if the recovery environment will recognize the raid array and restore to it. Thanks.

    ASUS ROG Maximus IX Extreme $60 after rebate and coupon code!

    No I used the 9 pin header to access and flash the bios chips by using pitch header wire to custom wire Clk to clk, so to si, cs to cs, etc. Had to use a jumper to select which bios i wanted to flash. Jump pin 1-2 for bios 2 and pins 2-3 for bios 2. Did this all with a Flashcat Usb programmer.

    ASUS ROG Maximus IX Extreme $60 after rebate and coupon code!

    Yes I went the SPI Programmer method using a FlashcatUsb device and I flashed both bios chips because bios #2 gives you a double post so I went with Bios #1 in the end. As for my memory overclocking I figured that out too.

    BSOD city after nvme drive install Dell XPS 13

    All I remember its a blue screen stop error that says something like 'less than zero' something or the other. So far though no errors running off of the SATA installation that I had before. I really do not want to reinstall windows anyhow and would prefer to migrate my SSD as it is with all of...

    BSOD city after nvme drive install Dell XPS 13

    Hi, I recently purchased an xps 13 9350 motherboard to replace my 9343 motherboard in my XPS 13 Notebook so that I could upgrade my ram and hard drive to nvme. First thing I did was install my old SATA hard drive and boot into windows and made a backup. Then I installed an ADATA SX8200 Pro SSD...

    ASUS ROG Maximus IX Extreme $60 after rebate and coupon code!

    Funny I actually ran the 1301 through coffeetime auto coffe lake unlocker tool few days before I got the board. Was going to do the mod but shorting out pins on a cpu isnt actually something I would like to do. I know that the 8350K and maybe the 9350K don't need hard mods on the cpu pins but...

    ASUS ROG Maximus IX Extreme $60 after rebate and coupon code!

    Been doing research on this mod. Seems like its an Apex X bios modded for Apex IX? Is that true? And that you have to use a flash programmer clip to flash it? Looks like a coffee lake mod.

    ASUS ROG Maximus IX Extreme $60 after rebate and coupon code!

    A little confusion regarding the bios files. I went with the Apex IX not the Max Extreme your referring to in regards to the bios you posted. The apex bios goes as far as 1301.

    Shouldn’t it have hyper threading regardless? What issues? I just updated my microcodes to ver CC and updated the raid efi roms from 15.5 to 16.5. Didn’t know it had issues.
