  1. Hey All, Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing issues with booting windows 10 recently? I noticed that recently that my PC will boot past bios and potentially lock up either on the lock screen or just after getting past the lock screen. Essentially I cant use the mouse/keyboard during this time and need to hard power cycle. It doesn't happen every time and once booted i don't have lock ups or issues during use. I have turned off fast start and initially thought through searching that that was the issue, but it has come back again. Specs i7-5820K MSI X99-A SLI PLUS Samsung 950 Pro Corsair Vengence 2400Mhz 16GB Asus Strix 1080 Samsung 850 Evo WD Blue 1TB Logitech G910 Keyboard Logitech G502 Mouse
  2. I have tried a few but end up back at ubuntu based distros... Mainly because what i want to do most of the time (android building/server) tasks are easily achieved and can be done on a relatively light distro. Anything else, while fun for a little bit become mondane and annoying when you need to hit google/stackoverflow just to get day to day things working on your rig.
  3. Linux can help, depends on what linux distro your looking to use. There would be a lot of preferences out there but lite linux and lubuntu (box based on ubuntu) should be light enough and still be easy to navigate around... if your feeling particularly adventurous you could try puppy linux but there are differing learning curves in doing more than just simple tasks
  4. Not an android computer... its a build computer for dev work
  5. Hey all, I have been using an intel G3528 as the brain for my current NAS setup. Its connected to 2 sets of mirrored 3TB HGST Deskstar 7200rpm drives as well as a 128GB SSD Boot Disk and 128GB download disk (old and punished SSD). This is running Ubuntu 17.04 with access through samba shares. I have been setting up a wired Cat6 LAN network in my house as well as beginning to buy a bunch of 4MP POE cameras to use for a CCTV setup with BlueIris. I will have at the minimum 3 CCTV cameras as of next week with an expansion to probably 6-7 in the future (my POE switch has 8 ports ). I have read that for a setup such as what I'm looking at I will most likely need to use a better CPU. My gaming system at present has a 4790K and my android build PC has a 5820K. I still run builds, probably not as much as I used to, but was thinking of maybe using my 4790K with UnRAID, splitting 1 core&thread to NAS duties and the other 3cores&threads to CCTV duties. Will I be leaving myself short with NAS duties if i run this route? Should I just throw my 5820K in the system instead? If i setup UnRAID will I have to reformat all of my storage disks again? I was thinking of picking up another drive and using another spare SSD i have lying around for CCTV cache and somewhat long term storage (Or am i missing something that I wont be able to confirgure?) Should I pick up an add in NIC for dedicated LAN access to each VM? Thanks all.
  6. While i understand why you are keen to jump on the latest CPU bandwagon, as if you don't do it someone else is going to anyway, but I don't know. It just feels wrong. Weirdly, using a buzz term for it, it does just like, 'fake news.' It just feels over extending and creating a video during the Ryzen buzz just to say you have a video out. You can see why people are pissed and I think you will most likely not make this mistake again. I watch every video and live stream and enjoy the content as a whole but this video could have been better spent on a Ryzen motherboard round up or Ryzen chipset reviews or testing overclocking ability between the B series and X chipsets to see if any performance is gained between them.
  7. The only real gaming stuff i really saw being spruiked was its ability to game and stream, something it did quite well in fact. @Mihle exactly they marketed it differently to a gaming chip. If it was a gaming chip beating or at least matching intel we would have seen a very large number of gaming benchmarks by AMD as to why it is better and we didn't. I'm no AMD fanboy by any stretch, I have nothing AMD at this time, with a 5820k, 4790k and G5328 and laptops with Intel chips but this AMD release has definitely peaked my interest considering I can get a replacement for my 5820k with a mobo for extremely cheap with 2 extra cores that has good performance
  8. ^^ you i like you... That is exactly what is happening here. After watching/reading from most tech tubers and reading pages like gamers nexus there are a lot of things that are at this stage immature with the platform.. Some are getting multiple bios updates just in the week alone, which are impacting on results. My belief in summary is; Don't believe temps as at this stage it is somewhat of a guessing game with programs such as aida64,etc (Level1techs, gamersnexus) Expect to receive multiple bios revisions in the coming days/weeks (Level1techs, gamersnexus) Don't expect great overclocking at this time until the platform steadies ^^^ somewhat related to this Don't try and push your memory too high 2933Mhz seems to be the highest stable through multiple sources (Level1techs, gamersnexus) Multiple vendors and game devs are currently working on optimizing games to Ryzen (PCper podcast) Don't believe charts supplied by any manufacturing camp as they are all trying to market why their product is best, of course they will spin it in their favour, everyone does it (Jayztwocents tech talk) Power draw can increase over tdp if the power and cooling ability is there (Level1`techs) Use performance mode over balance PC profile (PCper, someone else i cant think of right now) That's all i can think of in a couple of minutes, feel free to add more.
  9. Just bought this myself today as well. Waiting for it to download...
  10. ASUS Strix 1080 & a Acer G-SYNC XB281HK 28" UHD 4K Gaming Monitor Gonna be a good jump from 1080p gaming =]

  12. hit up XDA Developers - http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4 have a read through the general thread, there are a couple threads within that have some information about which devices can and cant be rooted to allow for further custom firmware to be flashed
  13. Holy moses... that is one expensive, yet dam fine case you'll have to do system pics for sure. Personally, i would one of those phase change cases, which are about that price.
  14. I have been wanting to sure up my network around the house, with about 20 devices connected if not more at times to wifi across 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz networks, our poor TP-link D7 cops a hammering. I have changed the router to optimize for the best channels on both bands. So I picked up 2 x kits of these D-Link AV2 2000 Gigabit Powerlines. We don't own our house so powerline is all I got for better connectivity. In the future in my own place ill get a 24 port switch and wire the whole house, a mate of mine is a sparky so a case of beer (in his case probably protein powder haha) and ill be good I also picked up 2 of the TP-Link 5 port gigabit switches (cheapest ones), nothing special but they work perfectly. Further picked up 2 x 2M Cat6e cables, 1 x 5m Cat6e cables, and 3 x Cat6es with 2 x Cat5e (both of those cat5e's came with the powerline adaptors). Attached a powerline at the router, my desk, my room and one to the satelite television. put a switch in the room to mediapc/NASpc, PS4 & a further cable to my laptop (when im in there) put the other to the desk attached to my build rig, gaming rig and RPi2. Seeing speed improvements from 4mb/s while on wifi (close to router) to up to 58Mb/s on the powerline from 2 i7 based PC's... the dual core media/Nas PC still see's lower with maybe around 9Mb/s weirdly (potentially CPU bottleneck???)
