    Stock OC Cards? Worth it?

    Are stock OC cards worth it? The card that I am wanting currently is only available in stock non-OC clocks. Is this a bad thing? Are stock OC cards better? You can just overclock the stock cards.

    iMac Won't Turn On

    So I have a late 2015 iMac that will not turn on at all. No fans, backlight, charms, lights, clicks, just completely dead. This happened overnight. Could it be a bad power supply? The computer was in an office environment where the building looses power somewhat often. Any ideas? I've got it tore down with the screen off and now I just want to know if its fixable. Thanks

    What OS for Snort??

    What operating system would you choose for Snort? I have Windows licenses but I'm wondering what would be the best and most secure/durable OS to install Snort on top of. Thanks

    Gigabyte Triple Fan vs. EVGA Dual Fan???

    Yeah I love the design of it!! Definitely looks like quality. I've always built in huge cases and I decided on this one to go as small as possible. My next build I'll probably go big again.

    Gigabyte Triple Fan vs. EVGA Dual Fan???

    I tried the strix card but it was too big for my case.

    Gigabyte Triple Fan vs. EVGA Dual Fan???

    There reviews on Newegg are horrible lol
  7. So, I didn't look at the specs of my case the Louqe S1 and the first GPU I bought and it was way to big.... Thankfully I got Newegg to return it today so after TRIPLE CHECKING the specs I've narrowed it down to two different options. One of them a triple fan stock card and the other a dual with a slight overclock. I prefer EVGA but I feel that the extra fan might benefit in my SFF case. What GPU would you pick?

    Plex Can't Get to the Internet

    Yeah I tried that just in case and it didn't do anything. I thought maybe it might be because it has two IP addresses. One on ens256 and the other on virbr0 (I have no idea what this one is). I've statically set it but I don't see a way to delete the other IP address.
  9. So I've installed Plex on CentOS and I cannot get it to be reachable from the internet. I've added the port into the firewall which DID make it accessible on the network from other computers however it can't reach the internet. The port is already port forwarded on the router with the static IP of the CentOS server. I had a Windows computer with Plex installed on it before with the exact same IP so I know its not the configuration of the router and something within CentOS but I cannot figure it out. Any help?? Thanks
  10. So I'm looking for a new GPU, I'm limited to dual slot otherwise I probably would go with the EVGA FTW3. Do the triple fans provide a difference over dual fans? Because the dual fans are larger are they quieter? Is the EVGA board of a better design with better power delivery? Please vote and also tell me what card you would choose in the comments.

    9700K Temp Jumps

    It's just under idle, all cores run around 30-40C at idle then randomly cores will spike to 50C and then go back down. Almost all of my builds have been Intel, I have a couple AMD servers at work. All stock BIOs but it's an ASRock board. As I understand unlike other companies ASRock doesn't enable any of the 9th gen performance hits that other companies have. SFF (Small Form Factor), I dont have a graph but I can make one later. I do have a min/max chart I'll post. Idle around 30-40C with spikes up to around 50-55c randomly for 1 to 2 seconds

    Noctua NH-L12 Stress Test
  13. So I've got a 9700K in a SFF build and consistently see multiple individual cores jumping higher than others? Is this normal or I'm I looking at bad thermal paste application? Cooler Noctua NH-L12 with bottom 92mm fan

    Louqe Ghost S1 Build - Project Tiny

    Small update, NVMe drives came in today so PICTURES!!!! Still haven't ordered the GPU or sleeved cables but these will be coming, trust me. Got the NVMe drives installed with the intent to put them in a RAID. I haven't had luck with that yet but at the worst I'll have a dedicated drive for game storage. I'm trying the Cooler Master GeminII M4 first and will swap out to the Noctua to compare. So far the Cooler Master actually holds its weight fairly good. Under a stress test using AIDA64 max temps were 85C which isn't horrible for how small a cooler it is. The fan isn't the greatest, it makes some vibration noises and you can tell its struggling for air and could benefit from a high static air pressure fan. Here's some pics, share this build and lets get some action going on in this build! Cooler Master GeminII M4 Stress Test
  15. So I've got an ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/ac motherboard with 2x Samsung 970 Pro's and I wanted to put them in a RAID 0. Even though RAID is enabled in BIOS and also UEFI is set to display to ROM where you would press Ctrl + I doesn't show up at all. Is it because the chipset isn't compatible??
