  1. I was thinking power supply also when I read the OP's post. Either that or a overheating issue, could check to make sure your H/S and fan are properly mounted. Given the random nature of the reboots it could be either imo. But Power supply is top of the list for me as well.
  2. LTT Storage Rankings

    My System is updated as well whenever you get time to update it.
  3. Silent PC build for friend

    Noctua makes some great heatsinks with almost silent fans.
  4. Best Build under $400?

    Intel build looks good
  5. Best Build under $400?

    dont think that motherboad will work with the 2600. Needs to be updated, and i dont believe it has a update feature without a processor.

  8. Best Build under $400?

    Is this a pure gaming rig or do you plan to use it for other things?
  9. 10 GB SSD Space Gone

    See My post above which mentions both of the items in the previous posts..
  10. 10 GB SSD Space Gone

    Try using Windirstat, it shows you where all the files are on your drive are and how big they are.. it is possible if you have a large amount of ram you are losing some of the space on your drive due to the pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys.. You can turn off hibernate and gain back valuable disk space. Run CMD as administrator and type powercfg -h off and it will gain you back roughly the amount of ram you have in disk space. If you know how you can move the pagefile to another drive preferably a larger drive or just reduce the file of the page file. That is probably were your missing SSD space is. Windirstat will show you this.. Link: https://windirstat.net/
  11. Need help getting started on NAS/Plex server

    Honestly using the FX chip he already might be a better option. Graphics Transcoding is kind of weak on Plex, only allows two stream from hardware accelerated option instead of using a nice cpu and a small/low power GPU.
  12. Need help getting started on NAS/Plex server

    I wouldn't use a laptop unless it is modern.. Old Laptops have slow processors and they are not built for transcoding. Your FX6300 would be better. You dont need a Graphics Card like that for a server. It uses alot of power, get a low power card just to be able to have a GUI. I used a Zotac GT710 1x pcie for all my server machines just to have video. Internet speed is great. FX6300 has a passmark score around 6300 at stock speeds. That should be able to handle at least 3 1080 transcoding streams and possibly some direct streams. If you need more streams you could invest in a 8000 series fx chip on the cheap from ebay. I run Windows 10 with Plex, file storage and other programs.

  14. Need help getting started on NAS/Plex server

    Do you have a system already set up? if not what is your budget? How many streams do you anticipate will be sharing at the same time and what is your internet connection speeds?:
  15. What is the best budget RAID card?

    First we need to know what OS you are running, second are all three drives the same size? You can do Storage Spaces in windows for a NAS, or if you do freenas you can do a HBA like some of the posters have suggested. You can do a raid card if that is something you want to do.. I have been using raid cards in my Windows PC for years and all these people saying you cant use without a back-plane are wrong. On top of that I have had little to no problems with my setup.. I have a Raid 6 with 28 drives, a Raid 5 with 3 drives and another raid 5 with 10 drives. All used in different manners one is a backup array. Most of the used raid cards on eBay are decent they last for awhile but run hot so you need to make sure you have enough fans to cool them down. It depends on what you intend to run on your NAS which will depend on what hardware or software you want to use. They have software raid options on the market as well.
