  1. yeah I know its hard... 1 may go for only one 5.25" Bay if the case has an integrated fan controler but I'm not sure yet
  2. Thanks for the suggestions so far, here is my breakdown on those PURE BASE 600 no easy access & removable filter except for PSU Silent Base 600 hard with watercooling greater that 120mm radiator (may be an upgrade when I switch CPU/Mainboard next year) top vent is not that great in terms of airflow and has no filter door may not be able to close because of my fancontroler knobs DARK BASE Pro 900 Looks good in terms of what I want but 200 € ... heck no never spend more than 100 so I'm not willing to spend 200 Fractal R5 looks really good with just over 100 € its pricy and offers not much more than my current one (silent feature is not a plus for me) missing a magnetic top filter with that cover Fractal R6 same as R5 but has filter on the top which is good at ~115€ its getting pricy and has not much "more" features than my old one, just being more expensive MasterCase MC500 liking this one the most so far! just under 90 € so that is doable^^ air intakes are good, filtered and easy to get to offers a large window which is a "plus" over my current one not 100 % sold yet because I think the mesh + removable filter on mine is still better that the MC500 front filter Anyone got other suggestions?
  3. Hi, im looking for a new case. I have a case that I really like in terms of features BUT I bought it a few years back for under 60 € and since then the price just went up to like 72 € right now. So I guess its not being produced anymore (or in small numbers) so it will disappear some day or get much more expensive. My case is the Aerocool Aero 1000: http://www.aerocool.us/pgs/pgs-a/pgs_a_a1000_bk.html I "challenge" you to find a case that matches my criteria When you look at mondern cases this case is just "awefull" as many people would say I believe, but I just dont care about most of the new stuff (mostly looks) it has to be functional! Must Have's (if doenst have those it's out): easy access dust filtration with removeable filters on Front, Top and Power Supply look at the pictures of the Case on the product page these are just fantastic for easy cleaning Front USB 3 Type A (at least 1) Full-ATX motherboard & full atx power supply compatible mounts for at least two 3,5" drives two 5,25" Bays (BlueRay Drive & Fan-Controler) Dont Care about / Nice to have: RGB (yeah i'm one of those guys) if it has RGB i'm probably gonna turn it off anyways so super unimportant USB-C dont have USB-Devices other than my phone and that charger has Type-A on the other end if it has regular USB 3-Type A & USB-C it would be a "nice to have" but nothing more tempered glass Many want that these days, but I dont I dont care about a windowed panel of any kind be it glass or plastic since that most of the time conflicts with easy access dust filtration! I would buy and use a case that had USB-C or glass or RGB but I would not sacrifice anything to rather have those! So plz dont hate because I dont care about the 3 bigget new "things" with cases these days and I hope you guys can find me a case that: does the same thing at a lower cost has the same features but adds mondern stuff (like USB-C, RGB) look cooler etc. I wish you the best of luck since I looked at quite some cases and could not find one that could rival my current one but maybe one of you guys out there are better that me.
  4. Hi, im planning on setting up a rackmounted NAS (got a rackmounted chassis already) running FreeNas which is responsible for storing backups of the mail Fileserver. Choosing a motherboard I found myself stuck with a rather unusual choice All that mathers for the motherboard is this: 1151 Socket (going to use a i3-7100 in there, maybe a Pentium G4600) 8x SATA3 connectors ECC memory support At first I thought about grabbing just the right board from Supermicro and call it a day but I found an Asus Board that matches my specs too. Supermicro X11SAE-M Asus P10S-M WS Costwise they are on par at my supplier. Can anyone tell me something about Asus's workstation/server "stuff"? I know that Supermicro makes really good boards but all I know Asus Boards for is their ROG for gaming
  5. It is the case, thats true. Reason being is that those specs are what they call "futureproof", meaning that those specs are safe to run that software for at least 4 years no problem. What you said about clockspeed sounds right and is inline whith what I thought. I now settled on 1x Xeon Gold 6128 (essentially the 2643v4 but on the new architecture) which basicly has the same specs but a lower TDP since it wasn't much cheaper than the previous gen E5. Thanks to you for helping me out
  6. Its a software for a tax consultant office and its quite demanding in terms of hardware. Thats why they list the dual config along with 16 GB of RAM for 8-10 users In this case there is no need for virtualisation as this will be the only task of that machine (serve the "tax software" and office to 3-4 people)
  7. you are right, fixed that. thanks
  8. Hi, I posted this earlier but in the wrong section (too dumb do see this one here) Im currently speccing out a server (about to serve its duty as a WTS) and I got stuck on CPU choice with 2 Options: Go with Dual E5-2623 v4 (4C 8T @ 2.6 Ghz) each has 16GB RAM in Dual Channel Go with Single E5-2643 v4 (6C 12T @ 3.4 Ghz) with 16 GB RAM in Dual Channel It will serve 3-4 Users in the beginning. The point at which I am stuck is upgradability. + for Option 1 -> better performance from the start - for Option 1 -> Upgrading means swapping both CPU's + for Option 2 -> Buy a E5-2643 v4 when needed and double performance, sweet (RAM will be doubled as well) - for Option 2 -> lower performance at the beginning Can anyone say something about performance when it comes to a duel between 2x 4 Cores vs. 1x 6 Cores on those chips? The performance recommendation for its purposes is exactly met by Option 1 and rated for 8-10 users. Since I only have 3-4 users I thought I could drop down a bit to a single 6 Core and have a much better upgrade path down the road. Am I on track or am I missing something important?? I took a look at the following benchmarks and was surprised that the 6-Core beats the two 4-Core's but that doenst quite reflect the workload on a Windows Terminal Server. Dual E5-2623 v4 Benchmark Single E5-2623 v4 Benchmark greetings Alkahna

    RX580 8GB or 1060 6GB - *Closed*

    @Majestic why that? and though not right now I might upgrade the cpu next then and from the current standpoint I might actually swap teams on the cpu side over to team red^^ So then the 580 would make more sense in that case I guess

    RX580 8GB or 1060 6GB - *Closed*

    @Majestic I added the rest of my system specs as well as an Sapphire alternative RX 580.
  11. Hi, im deciding wether to get an EVGA GTX 1060 SC Gaming ACX 2.0 6144MB (Link) -> 258€ for me here in Germany or an MSI RX 580 Armor 8G OC (Link) -> 254€ for me here in Germany or an Sapphire Radeon RX 580 PULSE 8GB (Link) @ 265€ Im really uncertain about those cards as they are pretty much on the same level (performance wise) from what I have read/seen with each card doing better in some games. Im only gaming at 1080p (no plans to go higher for now) and no AAA-Titles (and if then it doesn't need to be max settings) and I want that card to stay around for quite some time (~4-5 years) just like my HD6950 I bought in 2012. EDIT: My System is the following: Core i5 2500k (not overclocked but I have a AiO so I might go ahead and do some overclocking) XFX Radeon HD 6950 Gigabyte P67A-D3-B3 12GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws 256GB Samsung 850 Evo 1TB HDD I know its pretty old but still doing its job (except the HD6950) EDIT 2: After comparing the two 580's I decided to go with the one from Sapphire, thanks a lot to every one who helped me out on this Any recommondations from you guys? (for other cards to suggest, my pricepoint was 200-270 €) I could see the RX 580 ahead with more headroom in terms of driver tuning and Vulkan support becoming a thing but again, unsure^^ I hope you guys can help me out on this one ;-) regards Alkahna

    AMD Polaris Giveaway

    I own a Card that is somewhat outdated^^ I have a Radeon HD 6950 in my Rig. It is "ok" for running games on medium at 1080p. Now a days everyone is stoked on high res and 4k ans stuff and I'm like "well ....."

    LG PF1000U Ultra Short Throw Projector Giveaway

    Holy crap that thing is beatiful. I love the fact that you can put it below the wall you want to display the image on. That would fit my new living room since my acer projector needs wall mounting but there is a widows where it would have been mounted (would also need to run cables..) so no chance on getting it to work in my living room at the moment.
