    Easy way to transfer from PC to PC?

    Why not just transfer over Ethernet? Might go a little slow over 1gbit but it's probably the simplest solution.

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    If you want to try the 5930k is for sale! I pretty much capped out at 4.6, had to bump the voltage almost to 1.4 for 4.7. I've found this fairly common for Haswell E chips, I've owned several over the years. None could go above 4.6 without a lot of voltage, and I cant justify anything above...

    Xeon E5 1660v3 Overclocking

    Clock for Clock I believe they're about the same with a slight edge toward the Haswell chips. However from what I've seen overclocked they perform closer to gen 2 Ryzen in gaming. Even though they're older, slower chips, the relatively high clocks (when OC'ed) along with quad channel memory & a...

    Xeon E5 1660v3 Overclocking

    Thought I'd post this for anyone interested, replaced my 6 core 5930k with an eight core xeon 1660v3. Processor is unlocked and overclocks well, can do 4.6ghz @ 1.36v & 4.5ghz @ 1.28v. 32gb @ 3200mhz case 14. Basically a 5960x, these xeons are coming down to the $150 range on eBay. 1650v3(6...

    I'm over colored coolants

    I run straight distilled with appropriate amount of ptn nuke added. Been doing it this way for years with zero problems and great results. I've tried Primochill Utopia once, came with the tubing and decided why not try it. Didn't have any problems for over a year but when it came down to rebuild...

    Wtb: 4770(k)/4790(k)

    Looking for a 4 core Haswell to upgrade my neighbor's little gaming PC. Installed a spare GTX 980 couple of weeks ago but it is being bottlenecked by the Pentium that's in his system. This is kind of a charity thing, I've lived next to this couple for years, great people who've fallen on hard...

    Even swap Zotac Amp 1080 Ti for new 2070 Super?

    Pretty much a wash but the 2070s is faster in newer games, especially in DX12 titles.

    RTX 2070 Super Overclock Results

    Interested in seeing everyone else's results on these cards. On water I got mine stable at 2040mhz, or so I thought. 2040mhz was stable at pretty much everything I threw at it, 3dmark, battlefield 5, Witcher 3, ect. But then tried out Control that came with the card, and had to bump down the...

    Struggling to decide - 2070S vs 5700XT?

    I just got a 2070s directly from Nvidia. $540 after tax. I went with the reference model because it was the only one I could find in stock at msrp & it'll be getting a waterblock. Hopefully the upgrade from a 980ti will be worth it.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2060 SUPER Review Roundup

    I really want to upgrade from my 980ti, thinking the 2080 super might be it but now I think I'll keep playing the waiting game. Only game on the horizon that'll force me to upgrade is cyberpunk.

    watercooling flow issue

    What kind of filter do you use? If there really is low flow then you have a blockage somewhere, I'd look at the filter first (never used a filter personally in a wc loop), then start taking your blocks apart for a clean.

    My first watercooling loop (Not the usual, I suspect)

    Whats the purpose of running the cpu to the gpu line on the outside of the case? Those 90's don't do you any favors with flow.

    What is the go-to coolant now?

    I generally avoid silver if I have nickle in the loop, I know most don't have issues but that's not my experience. I go straight distilled with PTN Nuke. Went three years without a fluid change, blocks still looked brand new, but I also go use nothing but copper/brass in my loops now.

    Post Your pfSense Setup/pfSense Sugestions

    I've thought about this as well. I do have an exsi box and have messed around with a pfSense vm. I'd like to do it, but I know I usually have to shut down my host at least once a month. Not sure I could get away with the down time. Question, why don't you use passthrough for your nics? Is there...

I would like to repurpose the Dell as a blueiris server, so I'm looking for ideas on what to replace it with...
