  1. 3950x would be ideal.. However I have been waiting for the 3900x since before their release ?.
  2. What is your usecase? You can use pretty much anything sub $100 with 8gb memory for a server. Just wipe it and install CentOS or Ubuntu. Depending on your usecase I'd suggest different drives or networking though.
  3. Your IP is public, what you're concerned with is the port-forwarding. It depends how crazy you want to get. You can restrict firewall ingress to only allow your friends IP addresses if you would like. Or you can just allow anyone to connect to your IP on that specific port. If you're looking to further protect yourself I recommend making sure the system that is hosting the game server is patched (or power it off when not used), port forwarding is to a specific internal IP address (the machine you want to power off after usage or have patched), a firewall enabled, all other inbound ports that are not used are blocked, on the host machine block all inbound ports except the required ones, also block egress (outbound) traffic to only go across necessary ports. If you decommission the gaming server be sure to remove the router port-forwarding settings. If you really want to get savy, you could setup a separate network just for the game server and have a route just for that in addition to everything I said above. Hope that helps!
  4. As per the cooler, I initially planned on getting the Noctua but since changed. I realize the performance of Noctua would be better but going with looks on this one. I might change my mind last minute though.
  5. Since Intel has dropped the price of the 9900k and the shortage of AMD components I've been on the fence. I'm initially planned to hold out for the 3900x and build that, however with recent gaming bench marks I'm not sure it's worth the hassle of trying to find available hardware to build a 3900x build. That being said... is it worth the wait? I'm using the 2080 as a place holder, I plan on getting the EVGA 2080 Super FTW3 Ultra. Either way I have to wait for that GPU to come back in stock. Any feedback on the part lists below would be appreciated. Thanks! My usecases: Mainly gaming Some software development Some virtualization (most of this I do on AWS anyway so a beefy computer isn't needed perse).

  6. Depending how beefed up your server is I'd make a virtual host and then build a server ontop of it. But server wise I use CentOS (same thing as RHEL just unsupported).
  7. That's a lot of money free for what you want to do. Personally I'd run it on a Linux distro, use 2TB or 4TB HDD's, maybe put it in a RAiD1 setup. If ya want to get crazy you could do 2x1TB SSD's for the primary data and then do a backup of it or copy over to HDD's. You also have the possibility to create a cache that would be SSD that would then ultimately write to SSD if you wanted to save on cost and not use pure write to SSD. Depending on what they are doing to access the stream I do a cifs share with a samba server and can regulate users/access completely with that and specify what files/location I want the to access. Things you'll need to focus on primarily will be networking since you'll want it to be pretty quick, 1G NIC should be fine, no need to get into bonding if you're not going to be worried about reliability (if it breaks your viewers will just have to wait til a new one comes in). Remember networking isnt limited to just the system but dependent on the type of router and modem you have as well, so you'll need 1G connection there too. Memory 16G I'd think would be plenty and create a swap partition of 4G. And a quad core processor as well, preferably intel since I'm an intel fanboy. EDIT* Oh yeah also use LVM so you can expand easily.
  8. The default swappiness value should be fine, if not you can set to 0, which would only swap if critically necessary for your computer to do so. I would bet most likely your computer will never use swap or very little of it.
  9. Sharing across WAN you'll want to be real careful as to not leave yourself any openings for an attacker. If you're just using regular FTP that traffic is insecure, i'd recommend ssh. To be honest I haven't done it with FreeNAS but what you most likely will need to do is use something like "owncloud" and configure that with FreeNAS. Alternatively I'd imagine you could also use no-ip + openVPN and allow them to VPN into your network and lockdown what they can do, that would be a lot more secure than an open FTP service.
  10. Personally I use Centos 7 with a Samba server running and shared to my windows computer. FreeNAS is well known and good as well. People will tell you ECC with FreeNAS on gfs or something crazy; I've been using cifs+a cron job of an rsync to an external HDD every night for years now and haven't had a problem.
  11. Sounds like it might be a bug with flaky audio hardware. Have you tried updating recently with apt-get update?
  12. you tried this? cd $HOME/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak cd $HOME/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.bak
  13. could probably just make an init script to play the sound clip in the bg.
