  1. I used almost the entirety of the paste you get with the BE QUIET Dark Rock 4 PRO, almost double pea sized.
  2. Bought and installed both the elite motherboard and pro cooler and it seems the temperatures have gotten worse somehow?
  3. Brill, thanks. How about this motherboard? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Z390-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-Express/dp/B07HS3BV24?SubscriptionId=AKIAIPHVZTVH6LZ5BFZA&tag=hawk-future-21&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B07HS3HGCJ&ascsubtag=trd-1103024688203597495-21&th=1
  4. Both of these were bought from amazon so they can get returned in change for something else if these are the issue. This is the cooler that I have; https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07BYP9S95/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I cant see anywhere it mentioning 200 watt or 250 watt? EDIT: nevermind, i see it in the pic Also in short what's up with my motherboard? what do you recommend?
  5. I did this on the day of the posting, I took it off, alcohol wiped both surfaces, put on a slightly bigger than pea sized blob of thermal and tightened it down tightly.
  6. Hi, My 9900k is reaching temps of around 93 degrees when at load, testing with handbrake. I've just re-seated the cooler with new thermal paste and getting the same temps. I've attached images to show the temps, and also my bios settings which is mainly defaults. I have XMP enabled to run my ram as 3000mhz. Specs: Ram: Corsair CMK32GX4M2D3000C16 16gb x 2 (32gb total) Motherboard: Z390-A Pro CPU Cooler: BE QUIET Dark Rock 4 CPU: i9-9900k
  7. Hi,I've recently moved my server to my under stair closet. I've been monitoring temps and at low usage, the two CPUs sit at around 45 degrees. However once starting to hit max load they start to hit around 80 degrees, still safe temps but the room becomes extremely hot, the server case hot to the touch. This isn't surprising as there is no ventilation into/out of the room.What can I do to add ventilation?
  8. Decided to just go for it and bought a super cheap 40mm fan and screwed it straight into the heatsink and brought it down to about 50 degrees. Doesn't make any more noise and brings down the temps so I'm happy
  9. Hi, I'm running Unraid on my S5500BC motherboard using both cpu slots and it's showing very high temps for the "Intel5500 - MB temp". At Idle it's hitting around 77 degrees celcius, whereas the cpus are sitting at 28 degrees. I've attached an image with an arrow pointing to possibly the heatsink that's hitting this high temp, as it feels extremely hot . Do I need to be worried about it hitting so high at idle? Can I get a fan to clip onto it to cool it down?
  10. Brill. Thank you. I got the server with everything in it with 1 cpu for £40 then threw in an extra Intel Xeon E5620 cpu for £4 so I'm extremely happy with price to performance. The motherboard is the Intel® Server Board S5500BC. This should bring the temps down a lot, especially in the room its sat in.
  11. Hi, I'm running a server in a SC5650DP case with Unraid, and most of the time it sits idle waiting for Plex streams. I have a UPS running the server which shows power stats, and it uses about 150 watts idle. It has a E35746-004 power supply but it's constantly kicking out blistering hot heat. I'm trying to look for a replacement which is a lot cooler and quieter, it's a 600w (E35746-004) power supply. I'm not sure where to start looking. Help would be appreciated.
  12. Looks like i've sorted it, if the server goes down it doesn't bring down the rest of the websites, here is my reverse proxy config; <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin administrator@test.co.uk ProxyRequests off DocumentRoot /var/www ProxyPreserveHost On ServerName testsite.co.uk <Location /> ProxyPass http://testsite.co.uk/ ProxyPassReverse http://testsite.co.uk/ Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location> </VirtualHost>
  13. I've got an apache server running a couple of wordpress websites and also a reverse proxy to another server which I use for testing. However, if the test server which the reverse proxy points to goes down, it brings all the websites down with the error of; The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later. Is there any way to stop the reverse proxy bringing down all the sites if the reverse proxy cant find the site? Here is my reverse proxy config; <IfModule mod_proxy.c> ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyReceiveBufferSize 4096 <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyPass / http://testsite.co.uk/ ProxyPassReverse / http://testsite.co.uk/ <Location /> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location>
  14. Hi, I'm moving into a new build house soon and i'm looking at options for internet (Always a priority) and I'm looking at business internet which has higher upload speeds and static external ip addresses which would be very useful for my self-hosting website. In the UK, are you able to order business internet to a residential home or is it for strictly only for businesses? been looking at providers such as XLN
