  1. Yeah, that's what I was thinking, but it's always nice get some confirmation
  2. Hey, I was wondering if it's possible to use three SATA power cables on a Corsair TX650M, when it only comes with 2 SATA power cables, and a MOLEX cable? I have some additional SATA power cables from another build, that uses the same PSU just higher wattages. The reason I'm asking is because I want to use my old rig for a small NAS/Plex server, and it needs a new PSU. It's not going to use a lot of wattages, but I do have a fair amount of drives for storage, so I either need to get some MOLEX to SATA power adapters, or if it's possible use three SATA power cable. I don't think that it would be a problem, as both SATA and MOLEX can be plugged into the same port on the PSU, but I figured it was better to be safe than sorry.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions, I will check them out
  4. Hey guys, I'm having some trouble with finding a new case. So I wanted to see if you guys had any recommendations. I have some criterias and a budget around 150-200$ Must have: Tempered glass side panel Black or gunmetal No brushed aluminum Minimum fan support: Front: 3x140mm Top: 2x140mm Rear: 120mm Like to have: Mid tower "Open" front panel something like mesh PSU cover
  5. So guys, I was wondering if it's possible that we will see non-server/ws motherboards with 10 gigabit ethernet connectivity, when Kaby lake is launched or if there will be a couple more generations before we'll see that? I should mention that I'm not 100% up to date with the latest news about Kaby lake, so it's likely that this have been confirmed or denied, and that I have missed it. I personally think that it could be possible that this is the generation we will see 10 gigabit being implemented by some manufacturers, and that it will be more or less a "standard" thing with next generation. I want to know your thoughts on this matter, so please let me know. By the way I'm a geek, but not a big one so I might be completely wrong
  6. Very nice projector, was looking for one to go with my home theater / gaming system, and this is just perfect
  7. I don't really have a budget at the moment, still in the early stages. I'm planning on gaming in 1440P, but I might end up in 4k (not likely at the moment). I want to get a new monitor as well. But it seems like my setup is still good, so I will get a GTX 1080 and go from there. Thank you all for the quick replies
  8. Hey guys, So I need some advice on whether I should just upgrade my GPU or build a new computer all together. I was considering getting a GTX 1080 in the near future. And was in doubt whether or not my current setup could handle the new NVIDIA 10 series. My current setup CPU: Intel i5 3570K MOBO: MSI Z77 GD65 RAM: 4x4GB Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 1600 MHz PSU: Corsair AX760i I know that it's some old hardware and it wouldn't surprise me, if my current setup will be a bottleneck for the GPU performance. I just wanted to ask here before just going out and buy a new GPU, that I can't really use to it's fullest. I should note that I do want to make a new build at some point, but if my current hardware is still good, then I will save the money and wait a year or two with the other upgrades.
  9. Hey guys, I'm having some problems with my home media server, causing lag spikes on my local network. I'm using an old computer as a linux server, at the moment I'm only running Plex on it. But I have some problems with lag spikes with 30 seconds to 1½ minutes intevals, I know that there is some issues with having DLNA enable on some networks, so I have completely disabled that feature in Plex, but it haven't helped on the lag spikes. When I turn off Plex on my server the problem goes away, so I know that it's not the hardware. So my only conclusion is that it has to be the software. I think I have tried almost everything to fix the lag spikes, nothing seems to help. I would love to hear from one that have some experience dealing with Plex, or someone who have had a similar problem. I'll add some dumps of some of my settings, so that you guys can see if there's something wrong.
  10. Cool, thanks guys. Are there any cards you can recommend? I have heard that LSI should make some good raid cards?
  11. Hey guys So I was wondering whether I should get a raid card for my storage server, or if I should just go with software raid? I'm using Linux os at the moment and I was planning on going with 8 drives in either two raid 5 or one raid 50, haven't decided yet. I just want some input on what you guys would do. And if you could recommend a raid card in the 200-300$ range that would be awesome
  12. I would love that Kova, I really need a new mouse, have been using a Logitech g9 for years, and sadly it's in really bad shape
  13. Hey guys, I was wondering, have Noctua released their Chromax rubber modification yet, if not when will they most likely do so? It's not that big of a deal for me to get them on release day, or anything, but I like that they are thinking about letting their customers choose what their fans should look like color-wise, and I would like to get some, for my own fans. I was hoping they would be released at the same time as the Linus Tech Tips edition fans, but I haven't been able to find anything on a release date, nor have I been able to find some one who sells them. What do you guys think, is this something you want, or simply doesn't care about?
  14. Hey guys, I have a kind of theoretical question to ask you. So I'm planning on making a small home file/media server. And I want to have a raid 5 over three drives, to start with. I want to make it raid 5 with a spare disk. But at the moment I don't have the money to buy another disk (already have three disks that i will be using). I was wondering if it's something I can do rather easily, or if I have to rebuild the raid from scratch. I should mention that I will be using Linux ubuntu for the server OS, and it will be a software raid. Any help would be lovely and very much appreciated I should also mention, that I'm not interested in hearing that I shouldn't be using raid 5 with a spare disk. I have already decided, that I will use it
