    Overclocking on non overclockable mobo?

    It's not new. It's an architecture from 2008 and even overclocking won't make it magically run new games well, especially since it's only a dual core i5.

    "Engine Error" in Apex Legends (Crash)

    If you're driving a Mazda RX8, an engine error makes sense jk.

    Core i5 8250U vs Core i7 8550U??

    The difference between them is mostly negligible. Both are 15W quad cores with high turbo and neither are very good at staying cool. There's no major difference to speak of.

    Eight failed NAS drives?

    If it turns out to be a faulty sata controller, you can pick up a cheap SAS controller with SATA breakout cables running in HBA mode.

    Full Hard Drive Backup to OneDrive

    Sounds like a school account or Office 365 subscription. By default, OneDrive is limited to 5GB in total.

    Full Hard Drive Backup to OneDrive

    Onedrive is only 5GB so I'm not sure what you're expecting to backup to it.

    IOS help

    Try to back-up with iTunes and do a wipe and restore, if the problem persists, reset to factory and don't restore anything and check if you can modify that setting then.

    Radeon RX 570 8GB or GTX 1060 6GB?

    I agree. Both in terms of price and performance there's a sizeable delta.

    Radeon RX 570 8GB or GTX 1060 6GB?

    The 1060 6GB is faster in any case than the RX570. Memory size doesn't matter on AMD cards as they don't nerf other parts when lowering VRAM.

    Win10: Administrator account, but no administrator rights?

    Since Windows 8, you're no longer allowed to write to the root of the C drive without being prompted about permissions. This is by design. Store programs in a subfolder like Program Files, or Software.

    Eight failed NAS drives?

    While the 3TB WD Red is arguably the worst WD Red in history, getting 8 faulty ones doesn't seem likely. How are the drives connected? Is it a PC tower with regular drive bays or is it a rackmount case with a backplane? If the latter, make sure all power connections are in place. Backplanes need all the juice they can get. Also test the drives in another system.

    3 old server racks

    Server gear is practically worthless after max 10 years. You can buy dual 6-core Xeon servers for $100 nowadays. Those single core Xeons are literally worth $0.

    refurbished graphic card and cpu

    Still low end. i7-2600 is the minimum for that gen imo, or Xeon E3-1230, which is more or less the same chip.

    refurbished graphic card and cpu

    Bad combo. The i3 2100 is super weak and a bad match with a RX580. You'll need to get a much quicker CPU to make good use of it.
  15. That means you can only use one at a time. They can't work together.
