  1. So I've been trying to set up a couple of shares off my Debian machine to act as Time Machine volumes for a couple of MacBooks. It worked fine, using Netatalk and avahi-daemon (AFP implementation). My Macs saw the shares, and Time Machine was able to start backing up, but I noticed that it was only writing at ~800KB/s. I tested the drive performance on Debian using dd, and saw reads and writes in excess of 100MB/s, and my network can definitely sustain that, so I was just wondering if anyone knew of any potential causes, or a better implementation to use Debian (or any OS really) as a Time Machine server. Thanks in advance!
  2. I had Windows 10 running on a Ryzen 5 1500X, perfectly fine and stable. I decided I wanted to install and use some flavor of Linux instead, for better compatibility with my other *nix machines. First, I installed Ubuntu 18.10, but found that the system would completely lock up and freeze every 15 minutes or so. I figured it might be something weird with the install, so I reinstalled. Same thing happened, and so I decided to try Debian 10 Stretch to see if it would be more stable. It is, but it still locks up every once in a while and I can't find anything that seems to fit, so I was hoping someone here could help. If you need any more info, please let me know. Thanks so much!
  3. Have Comcast reset the modem, then change all the passwords and such. This thread might be a good read for you: http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Your-Home-Network/DPC3941T-Modem-hacked-Utopia-net/td-p/2888703
  4. I know... I was looking a couple weeks ago, and prices seemed at least reasonable... now they're just absurd! I'll probably end up waiting until Volta, because there's no way I can afford this.
  5. It shows as in stock at OutletPC, but when you go to the website it's actually out of stock. Then Newegg shows it in stock, at almost $700 ?
  6. Thank you! Although I will say that the 1060 you have is out of stock... ?
  7. In complete honesty, I haven't heard of that case in a while, but if I were to get something like that, I would get the MasterBox Pro RGB, because I personally think it looks better.
  8. I'm back. Ok, so now I'm curious. People have such vastly different ideas on how to spend the same amount of money, so I'm interested to see what all of you could build for $830 USD. More cores is better to a certain degree, but a quad core hyper threaded is minimum. And go! (Don't include storage or PSU in the $830)
  9. Right, because you knocked $30 off the cooler, and $40 off the case... and gave me a really crappy looking one. Look, at this point, I have this, and I'm going to say thank you to everyone who contributed here, and go on my merry way. Who knows, by the time the money clears, I might have changed something, and in that case, if I'm still not 100% confident, chances are that I'll post again. For now though, I'm going to stick with what I have gotten from this thread (including info about overpriced GPUs as well as RAM speed and Ryzen.) Thank you to everyone who contributed, I really appreciate it, and I hope to be back in a couple weeks with a completed build
  10. $30 more isn't going to get me 16GB of RAM, and I don't need the 1600 right now. AM4 gives me a great opportunity to upgrade in the future, and aesthetics are pretty important to me, hence my justification in spending $60 on a heatsink, and getting a case with TG, along with trying to stick with a color scheme. I totally understand where you are coming from, and other people might do that, but it's just not for me. Thank you for all of your suggestions, though
  11. It's a Rosewill Photon... Not the greatest, but I received it as a gift, and it works fine for me, and am getting nowhere near the amount of issues I was getting with my previous PSU (10v on the 12v rail, crap like that) Like I said, picked that cooler for aesthetics, as well as the case.....
  12. Ugh, ok, so I just placed a bid on 3 980Ti's for ~$380... See how that goes ?
  13. Damn, I'm not seeing anything under like ~$400... What is your opinion about the 980 non-ti? I'm seeing them around $250-300
  14. I'm not really interested in a Ryzen APU or RX 550... I need something with a little bit more oomph. If anyone has any suggestions for a GPU that isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg more than it should, I'd love to hear it. Like I said, I'm willing to buy used if anyone has any ideas.
  15. It's a 750W one... Overkill for this, tbh
