    Recommend an Upgrade Route

    The Microserver G8 was particularly good value I think. Full iLO4, huge pro, upgradable CPU, built-in SAS support (just add a RAID card or HBA and boom) the lot. I run a G10 now because it's super power efficient and performs well enough. The pro to entry level servers is that they were designed to be a server 24/7 and off the shelf consumer hardware is not. I'm not saying it won't work, but there's a chance. Also remember Windows Server 2016 is quite picky on hardware. W10 drivers aren't guaranteed to work.

    Does NVLink Connector Have To Be Same Brand As GPU?

    NVLink is a standard, and as such, all products built around it are compatible with eachother. It's like languages. People from different countries can still speak the same language, so their conversations are still "compatible" if you will.

    GTA 5 can't run

    This is why I bought GTA V on Steam. No problems with reg keys, just add the steamlib folder to the client and click launch. So yeah, if you have the Rockstar Social Club version, delete and reinstall. Your account should be known, you created it yourself.

    ESXi trial ending

    I prefer not to use CLI if I don't have to. I'm used to ESXi and XenServer which allow full configuration via their WebUI or dedicated management client.

    ESXi trial ending

    Ah I forgot about Xen, I thought he meant XenServer, which was free until last year.

    ESXi trial ending

    Xen is no longer free, XCP-ng is the free fork of it now The free version is hidden somewhat. You need to browse for it specifically. https://my.vmware.com/en/web/vmware/evalcenter?p=free-esxi6

    dell optiplex mt gpu... this is gonna be fun

    I guess you're basically limited to running a GT1030 and call it a day, unless you want to transplant the parts if possible to another case.

    Which CPU?

    Reminds me of back in january 2013 when I upgraded from a Athlon II X4 640 to an i5-2500K. That was an insane performance improvement with my HD7770 crossfire setup. The i5 ran comfortably at 4.7GHz all day long. That said, I'm pretty happy with my 2700X now. It's a beast.

    Which CPU?

    FX didn't make AMD more known, not in a good way anyway. It wasn't competitive in the slightest and board manufacturers responded to that by making inferior quality boards, excluding the top end 990FX boards. The poor board quality showed in how many FX8xxx chips caused heavy throttling or burning of boards. I think AMD was best known through their performance leadership during the Athlon and Athlon 64 days (~'99-2006) and when they became the bang for the buck kings in the Phenom II era (2008-2011). The period 2011-2016 was basically rock bottom. Now that AMD is competitive again, I jumped on the bandwagon in 2017 with the R7 1700, and upgraded to the 2700X when it came out. Lovely stuff.
  10. Do you have certain profile folders redirected to OneDrive perhaps? It certainly looks that way. I'm guessing it tries to create a folder in My Documents to store files but runs into the redirection which apparently contains characters it can't deal with.
  11. I also wouldn't install software directly to OneDrive, that's an unsupported configuration. Install to Program Files.

    Lay down, try not to cry, then cry a lot.

    Dual channel vs single Channel

    That's margin of error stuff. You can't do one benchmark run and draw your conclusions. Also, it would've been better to just get another 16GB stick. Test with some more benchmarks, run the tests at least 3-5 times and compare.
  14. Well, it might not be an out of memory error but an unstable/defective memory issue. Run memtest86 overnight (not windows memory test mind you, that's as big of a turd as most things Microsoft has crapped out since 2012 ) and report back.

    Mystery CPU

    Looks like it, yeah. Only way to know for sure is to delid it, although I suppose it's possible there's a dummy die there.
