  1. A DAS sounds fun, if ure into ure storage. I'm currently a little put off! Well I have fixed my problem, but its annoying I now have two SSDs that can't be used. I will have to take them into work and wipe them on our machine.
  2. Sitrep. I've got it to boot to the M.2 SSD on its own. Problem. I had to disconnect the two SATA SSDs I had in there to make it work. So, me thinks that the harddrive format must have something to do with it, as both SSDs used to have Windows on them at some point in their lives. Could there be some truth in that? Also the two other SATA HDDs I have in there are not registering as OS bootable options, and they haven't. I so prefer working on commercial workstations and servers, theyre so simple!
  3. This is what I thought. But looks like it is possible. So the M.2, when F11 is pressed appears as a bootable option, and I'm currently on that OS. But when I come to set it as a boot option, it's not there. Infact none of my hdds but 1 appears. But that has been wiped clean. I will try unplugging it to see if that makes a difference. But im at a loss with it too. Doubt I would have a faulty mobo?

  5. So, there is only one installation of windows on all my harddrives, which is on the M.2 SSD. I didnt think the M.2 would use a Sata port?
  6. Just bought an MSI X570 Mobo. I've got 2 NVME M.2 SSDs installed on the mobo. Windows recognised the drive in the install gui but when I added in my sata SSDs I now have to manually select it from the boot menu upon post. Any ideas? Do I need to install on UEFI? I have experience installing windows so I know thats not a problem. I can't see any clear settings in the mobo to allow me to do this. Any ideas appreciated.
  7. It means I need a new Motherboard for overclocking which are hard to find at a good price.
  8. Hi, I'm playing BF5 a lot at the moment and I recently put a GTX 1060 6GB into my pc that I had been mining with for the last year. I'm not getting amazing performance in big scenes with 64 players and I'm running at 1080p medium settings. It just seems silly. Is it my processor that is making the biggest difference or do I just have a crappy system that I need to upgrade.
  9. Hi there, It's probably been said before so don't crucify me. I'm trying to find a DAC/AMP combo to run my AKG K550 (I know it isnt a big powerhouse, but I intend to upgrade in the future) I also have a pair of Rokit KRK 5 G2 Monitor speakers. I really need the input to be optical (SPDIF) Outputs to be balanced XLR also with a 3/4" jack out the front with the ability to switch between the two as I like. (Or something to run my speakers off and a 3/4" jack, the switching is a must have too) If anyone knows a good solution then let me know. Preferably something that is in a single unit but beggars can't be choosers. Many thanks Alex
  10. Hi, I take it the priority is CAD and video editing. Just some things to think about. CAD takes advantage of GPUs so you could possibly look into getting a second hand quadro from ebay. It doesn't need to be anything recent, but could be worth looking into it. Another thing is a second hand GTX 1060 6Gb. Miners have started selling them second hand, and as its light gaming it won't be being used as much as a normal gamer, so longevity shouldn't be too much of a concern. The SSD is a solid choice. The HDD tho. Maybe a WD black would be better. I know from my own CAD files having the faster HDD makes a difference. But you will pay more for this. The ram could be changed to G.skill instead of Kingston to save $30. I get why you chose it but G.Skill is still reputable and the difference would be much better felt elsewhere. EG: WD Black HDD. The last thing is the case. I mean woooooow. That is an expensive case. Have you looked into the Define R5? Ive got one and its solid. Other than that I reckon this is gonna be awesome. You've got room for more ram in the future, which was my only other possible problem but cross that bridge if you get there. Nice one
  11. Okay, so as soon as I start to do anything demanding off my computer. EG: gaming or video editing or CAD. I start to get a buzz, even a small one when running chrome. I guessed its because its a crappy motherboard with no shielding from electrical interference. The Fulla 2 is a dac as well so thats for the question regarding the USB getting the same interference. Hopefully this helps?
  12. Hey, So I've read a few posts that went over this but everyone has a unique situation so I figured I would ask a similar question again. I currently have a Gigabyte basic crappy motherboard from 2012 which is awful. I get a buzz as soon as I start to run a game or music, so lets put it simply the audio is pretty bad. I want to get something nice, so I decided I want a Schiit system. I looked at getting the Modi and Magni combo, and then saw the Fulla 2 and thought it would be perfect. But the real question is will it be perfect? I run KRK Rokit 6 G2 speakers off its own Pre amp, and AKG K550 headphones straight from the motherboard. I want to know: Will it run both? (I would still use the pre amp for the speakers) If I get electrical interference with the audio could I get it with USB? (Will it pretty much eliminate my buzzing!) Is it worth it for the headphones I have? (Could I tell a difference in audio sound?) If you need anything clarifying please message, as Im no English expert! Alex
  13. I meant that the parts that dont turn on are dead, not necessarily the whole thing is. Sorry
  14. Honestly would say the miners ruined the 1060 6Gb too. I being one of them. Im not very proud but I did buy 100 cards
