    New Unraid wont boot HELP!!!

    The only downside is that ESXi doesn't support softraid, otherwise it's a great hypervisor. All my "server" machines run it, even a Celeron NUC that hosts my website and a remote login VM.

    last gen card value?

    Prices seem reasonable, but I can't judge what the actual going for rate is for these things.

    Is my PSU killing motherboards?

    The old CX models (pre 2015) were pretty bad, yeah. Especially the CX430 and CX600. Modern day CX and CXM (both green and black label) are okay mainstream PSUs. Now that I have money to spend, I prefer going with 450-650W gold units.

    CONFLICT ? GTX 1060 + Ryzen Threadripper 1920X

    Which software? What kind of resolution and framerate are you targeting for video editing? Which games?

    Can I upgrade, or should I start over

    The 8700K is more like $500 now with the shortages. Bad value chip.

    Can the quadro do ray tracing?

    No ray tracing on Pascal. Too old. Gaming wise, it's roughly a GTX1060 6GB.

    Upgrading/Remaking my Gaming PC

    Those parts are a decent upgrade for sure. Word of warning, make sure that new board either gets a BIOS flash before it's shipped or make sure it has a way to flash the BIOS without a CPU installed as the 9700K won't run on Z370 out of the box.

    Can I upgrade, or should I start over

    That CPU is dual channel only, btw. 4 slots doesn't equal quad channel Enough with the nitpicky stuff. You'll get a great experience with just a GPU upgrade. Up to a GTX1070 should pair well if you want 1080p, up to a 1070Ti/1080 for 1440p.
  9. Running a fan all the time isn't as bad as you might think. They're rated for more hours than the card will be useful for you. I have a few systems of 20 years or older with working original fans

    win rar password

    There's software to brute force passwords, but the forum rules strictly forbid discussing stuff like that, since we can't know for sure this is your own set of files.

    Does an eGPU combine the internal and external GPU?

    Nope. Unless your eGPU and dGPU in the laptop are the same, i.e. RX580 and RX580, GTX1060 and GTX1060. If it's integrated only, they work independently.

    Would his build be missing anything?

    Tweaked it for you. Dual channel RAM at high speed is absolutely compulsory with Ryzen. Cooler isn't necessary. Newer PSU, better GPU, SSD added.

    The Quadro RTX models do ray tracing, all others don't. Yes, they can game. Source: Wiki fuqqin Pedia

    Asking For a Friend ...

    When both of those cost the same I'd always pick the newer option. While X58 and a beefy 6 core Xeon are nice in many ways, it's still 8-9 year old gear without a way to upgrade it cheaply. Those are just my two cents, though

    Am i doing wrong on my Disk management?

    It's harmless, so you might as well just ignore it.
