    I7700 cpu frequencies too high *need help*

    what kind of cpu cooler and case/fan setup u got? Sounds like your issue may be overheating or failing power supply

    I7700 cpu frequencies too high *need help*

    Theres nothing wrong here. the motherboard overclocks the CPU when the load is high. temperatures arent bad for an i7. your system is a little bit dated as rust can be resource intensive.

    Server locking up, constantly needing hard reset.

    A fresh windows install isnt bad, but first I would connect things back up, and while monitoring voltages and temperature, run something to stress test it. also check power settings, is it set to sleep, hibernate, check bios for c states, turn them off. it may be getting stuck trying to go into...

    New Small Business Server suggestions

    Having it running in a VM doesnt guarantee its still not bottlenecking the disk drives. upgrading the h700 isnt too bad, you can also use consumer SSD's. Dont get caught up the the enterprise BS. Im running dual 500gb samsung Evo 870's and ive never had a single issue in my dell server

    New Small Business Server suggestions

    typically any server used for a database should be its own machine. that would probably take 60% of ur load off right there

    Athlon 64 x2 bottlenecking?

    For this rig I run Windows XP 64 bit. Its low impact on the hardware and takes advantage of the 64 bit capability

    Worth Upgrading Server to Ivy Bridge E5-2xxx V2?

    Depends, how much ram do you need and whats the server used for? Whats the full current specs? Also I dont believe the hardware bugs really affect end users, mostly large scale server operations and to date I have not heard nor seen an attack using them.

    Home plex server/HTPC suggestions , mine diedish

    I had one of the R420s for several years and found the rack servers to be very loud, power hungry, and hot unless you do heavy mods or have a basement/separate area to put it in. Power hungry depends on opinion, and settings, same as loud. I actually have mine here in my office and I cannot...

    Honestly, this is not the first time I have heard of those MSI boards having PCIe slots shit the bed. if your willing to drop 500 you can do a lot. Think about your current load, is it a lot? Do you need more cores than you have? was the ram usage high? Do you need more? The point I guess im...
