    NelizMastr got a reaction from Salv8 (sam) in 5U The Waifu. my new server   
    I Lol'd at the sudoko meme.
     
    Anyway, to be more to the point, I rarely trust PSUs beyond 5-8 years, depending on the specs. If this server is from 2006-2007, they probably aren't even 80+ rated yet, which is concerning. They are usually build pretty well, though, so reliability should be fine. That said, the ATX spec has changed over the years, and newer components don't always work well with old PSUs. If you can find newer compatible units for a fair price and higher output, they're worth considering.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from Melonmysst in Z490 Platform worth the wait?   
    What would your reasons be to wait for Z490 over X570?
     
    Gaming performance between 14nm Intel and 7nm AMD is basically the same. IPC slightly in favor of AMD at the moment, SMT scales better than HT as well, which may or may not be a thing you'd want.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from Ben17 in My RAM is too fast for motherboard   
    You're likely CPU limited more than you are motherboard limited. Most Ryzen 3rd gen chips will do 3200-3466 fine, 3600 takes some tinkering on some.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from Ben17 in need help with mac not booting   
    It could still be the SATA cable. SSDs are harder on these cables than harddrives are.
     
    Swap the cable for a new one and test the SSD on it again.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from ShovonKhan in SATA Iii port getting SATA II speed!   
    So what happens when you connect a SATA3 device? If this HDD is SATA2, that's all you will see.
     
    That said, this HDD won't even saturate a SATA1 link (1.5Gbps) so it's not a big deal anyhow.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from paddy-stone in Which AMD Ryzen is suitable?   
    ^This.
     
    It might very well be that all you do is store files which would mean an Athlon 3000G is plenty. If you want software transcoding and VM's, going with a 3700X might be the best option. It all depends on the use case and your requirements. 64GB of RAM will also need a use case as it's not cheap to buy speedy ECC UDIMMs.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Is the vega 56 worth it for gaming and some editing   
    It's a bit faster than a GTX1070/GTX1660, and a bit slower than the RTX 2060.

    If those are the prices, the Vega 56 is the best of the bunch for sure.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from Wingfan in Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB   
    I'd say the 660p is ideal if you have 2 m.2 slots and this is your data/game drive. I have a TLC SSD for boot and the 660p for data and that seems to work splendidly.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from Amir93 in Disk usage in windows 10 goes to 100%?   
    This is normal behavior for Windows 10. This is also why people use SSDs. Current gen operating systems are optimized for use with SSDs, HDD as a boot drive is something that belongs in the past.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from Wolfycapt in CPU Upgrade (potential motherboard issue)   
    The 3800X will work fine, but you need to install the latest BIOS first. Some MSI boards need to run the latest Beta BIOS for Ryzen 3 to work, I know my X370 Gaming Plus did.

    Use another PC to create a live USB with something like Ubuntu. Boot it, access your drive and copy the files from it. Then format and reinstall Windows.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Pci 1 adapter ro Pci 16 GPU speed   
    You can't make a x1 slot run at x16 bandwidth. You can only make it physically bigger with such a cable. And yes, they exist as they were used by the crypto miners not that long ago.
     
    Just look around for PCIe x1 to PCIe x16 riser.

    NelizMastr got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Graphics Card to HP SFF with 240watts?   
    You can't game on a GT710. It's barely better than the onboard video. Can't imagine you can stream much either on a 2011 dual core.
    Also, the GT710 isn't a $80 card, it's a $20 card.
     
    Either way, to answer your question better, the better value option would be a low profile GT1030, GDDR5 version obviously.
    There is a chance however that your motherboard will not accept it, as HP is known not to support everything that physically fits.
     
    Update the BIOS first to the latest available version before installing a new graphics card.

    Don't use adapters. If your PSU doesn't have the right cabling, it's probably too shit to handle anything beefy.
     
    I'd get a name brand PSU with good reviews, like the Bitfenix Whisper Gold 450w, Seasonic Focus series, Cooler Master V-series, Corsair TXM etc.

    Ubiquiti gear is ideal for this. You can even link them wirelessly if there's no possibility to run cables to them, creating a mesh like system.
     
    Just get 3 AP AC LR access points and a switch and you should be good to go once you've set them up. I'd recommend a cloud key if you don't have a computer to run the controller software on.
