  1. Well i wasnt sure and i had no way to check them individually so the store i bought them at just told me to send everything pretty much and they would test it. From what they told me it was the motherboard. Im not sure i understand exactly what you mean, but if i remove the cooler then there is still space and wobble yes. It should be the correct ones as i have the rest of the mounting parts stored away and the ones i showed are the only ones i have. It does feel like a issue with the standoffs but i have so many questions. Like, isnt the backplate supposed to be mounted by it self somehow? from watching build videos it seems like it is pretty rigid while they are mounting the standoffs. The only thing i can do is pretty much stick it through the 4 holes on the motherboard and nothing more. And it does seem like a lot of places shows standoffs like these, however i dont have those.
  2. Hello! So recently i had to send in my motherboard, cpu and ram for RMA as one of them were making my PC unable to boot. And so now that i got my stuff back the motherboard came back with the backplate off from the motherboad, now im unable to mount it correctly. From what i remember this thing used to be able to sit on the motherboard without my CPU cooler being on, however im not able to do that anymore, it feels like im missing some mounting parts or something. The screws are definitely screwed in tight, i even went a bit harder than i usually would. This is what it looks like when i've used all the screws and parts i have available (not secured properly) The related specs are: AMD Ryzen 1700x Asus Prime X370 Pro Kraken X62 CPU Cooler These are the things im using to try and mount it: If you need any more pictures or info to help me fix this let me know and i can provide. Ty in advance.

    Problems while Livestreaming on Twitch

    Can you upload the log file from OBS? If you press help -> logfiles -> upload last
  4. It will be fine, CPUs really dont break just because they get pushed to their limit.
  5. Proxmox looks nice, i might give that a go to start with.
  6. Hey! So i recently sent in my mobo+cpu+ram for warranty which i now have gotten back. The problem i have is that i got it back with my back plate taken off, and im pretty sure i sent it in with it on, and i dont know how to put it back properly. I've done some googling but i cant really find anything helpful. So the relevant specs are: Mobo: ASUS Prime x370 Pro CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 I have mounted it somewhat, but it doesnt really feel "secure" its like the backplate is supposed to be attached to something which i dont have. Basically what i did to attach it is i took the backplate, stuck it through the holes on the motherboard and screwed in the standoffs to the backplate. Then put the pump onto the standoffs and screwed it on. Heres a video of what i mean when i say it doesnt feel secure And this is what the backplate looks like: https://i.imgur.com/mS3sEYR.jpg https://i.imgur.com/SSpo84l.jpg Is this right and am i just being worried about nothing? i just dont remember it being this loose before.
  7. I dont really have a "real server" so to say, it's just consumer parts serving the server role. I'll look into compatability though since i use a i7 4670k but i would assume the hypervisors arent super picky. And that's good about the raid array, i dont really have any solutions to move my existing one over so if i just can mount it again that would be great.
  8. Hi! I've been planning on moving my current setup, which is just a linux debian setup, and move over to some kind of hypervisor, and just turn it into a VM pretty much. However i do have some questions, the first one would be which hypervisor should i go for? my plan is to just have my server as it is already, just as a VM instead, and then have the ability to start up a windows VM if i need something that cant be run on linux. I havent really looked into hypervisors too much outside of hyper-v The second concern is that i have a linux software raid setup for my storage, will i be able to mount that in the VM ?
  9. Also i forgot to mention, if i leave it running for a couple of minutes it just shuts off abruptly.
  10. I havent tried that, but i doubt its the monitors. I have 3 of them, and if i take one out of the graphics card and plug it back in it says no signal for a while before going back into sleep.
  11. This problem popped up overnight and i noticed it today when i came home and wanted to start my PC. When i press the start button, everything seems normal, fans spin up, lights light up, harddrive starts spinning, but my monitors dont get any signal. I feel like i have tried everything at this point, i've tried all ram slots, both with a single ram stick and with two. Tried resetting CMOS, moving the graphics card to a second PCI-E slot, trying a different graphics card in either slot, taking out the CPU, reapplying thermal paste and putting it back, basically disassembling my whole PC and putting it together but the results are still the same. I have had this PC for probably close to a year and it's been running fine with no problems the whole time, until today. The specs are as follows: CPU: Ryzen 1700x @ stock RAM: 16gb Vengeance RGB 3000 mhz MOBO: Asus Prime x370 PRO PSU: EVGA Supernova g2 750W Any help would be apreciated.

    Plex buffering issues

    So what is the problem exactly? is buffering just slow or does it not do it at all?
  13. Depending on which generation the E3-1275 is from it could be a lot more recent architecture compared to the E5530. But for your use case it seems like you will be fine with either, at least speed wise. Depends how much you care about power usage and what not.

    Need help making home server from old computer

    Also worth to mention that your CPU has integrated graphics so you can most likely drop the GPU unless you have some other plans for it. But yeah it seems like you are going for what i did a few years ago, i turned my old Phenom II x4 pc into my home server, bought 2 WD reds for it and its been going for 3 or so years.

    Noob server build questions:

    The difference between normal desktop intel cpus and xeons are that xeons have ECC support, usually have lower clocks and lower tdp for more stability and better power efficiency. But honestly its not a must have. Have you looked at Ryzen ? i heard there were some price reductions for the older generation ones so they should be super good bang for the buck.
