So to make a long story short. a while back i got a Ryzen 2700X 8c/16t great gaming cpu.
running it in a gigabyte aorus m w/ b450 chipset. I hate this board. lots of random blue screen crashed when gaming.
I need advice on a new mobo, case and video card maybe PSU as well. I need to make this...
FrgMstr ill check it out this week. when I put it back together will i need some kind of thread tape or sealant?

i got new tubing, and new XSPC coolant for a build im doing. the old coolant was some nasty thermaltake glycol crap. how do i best clean out and prep the pump and everything for new coolant?
The colors will be drastically different sdo I dont want any green left over to mess up my new stuff...
Ill keep this as simple as i can. I am liquid cooling an old socket 478 Pentium 4 build.
I am trying to reuse as much as i can from an old Thermaltake big water 735 kit.
pump/res in good shape, currently using them to clean out water block and rad.
rad is in poor shape. lots of bent fins not...
I am looking to do a retro build, I have a nice northwood pentium 4 on the 800mhz FSB w/ HT that I want to run.
I have memory and CPU, I need a decent board to run it, obviously not looking to spend a fortune. hoping like 30 bucks or close to that.
a few preferences but not exact requirements...
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...
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

Looking to setup a simple media desktop for my home office and need a sound card that supports optical audio for my receiver.
Hoping I could find one for 50 or less, but lmk what you have!
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.
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...
