  1. Raid 5 Stripe size

    I have set up many RAID's for home and enterprise use. If its just general storage (like you said) stick to 128KB block sizes. Yeah you can gain from setting smaller block sizes if you are storing small files (a HDD must rewrite the whole block, so if you have 512KB blocks and are only storing 15KB files you are wasting a lot of time rewriting whole blocks). I find 128KB to be a happy medium.
  2. 1080 ti sli

    As somebody who has x2 1080Ti's I can tell you 1 is not enough for 100Hz 3400x1440p. Also OP dont forget to grab a HB bridge!
  3. Seems like a GPU issue but have you tried reverting your CPU overclock?
  4. Please I'm desperate I cant turn off eyeinfinty

    Open the AMD Panel and right click the program in your task bar and hold Win+Shift+Left arrow/Right arrow. This will move the window between monitors.
  5. Hi Guys So im thinking about swapping out my 980Ti's (not waterblocked) for some 1080Ti's (Waterblocked). I currently have my 6850k OC'd to and it runs super cool under water. I am assuming that adding two 1080Ti's to my loop will still be ok but perhaps cutting it close. I dont mind spinning my fans up to keep everything quiet.
  6. Recover Damaged Files External HD

    WD external drives are notorious for having the mini/micro USB ports go bad on them. Might be worth taking apart the enclosure and directly plugging the drive into a desktop and see if you can get all your files that way.
  7. Is your laptop using Wireless to connect to the internet even with the cable? Do you have DHCP enabled on your router?
  8. Do u like ur hypervisor

    Derp my bad, The management is called XenCenter
  9. Do u like ur hypervisor

    You forgot one, Xencenter I use a load of them for work (ESXi,Hyper-V and Xencenter). I just recently moved from ESXi to Hyper-V for my home server.
  10. Windows problems

    Was your last system Intel? If you have made massive changes to the system hardware your old (current) install of Windows will have the wrong drivers and it will fail to boot. Quickest way to fix it would be to backup your items via another PC and then reinstall. Windows 8 onwards are more tolerant to system changes but 7 is not so good at it.
  11. What is wrong with the drive?
  12. Now that you have taken the heatsink off the CPU you have no choice. You need to clean off and replace the thermal compound. What you're describing is perfectly normal and correct on a laptop CPU as they are missing the IHS that desktop CPU's have to allow them to distribute the heat more efficiently, so need the extra thermal compound to act as the TIM or buffer for the gap between the CPU and the heatsink.
  13. RAID 1 or nahh??

    If its worth the $49 to you then go for it. I myself store anything "important" on my RAID10 server so I have no need for my desktop to be redundant.
  14. Would you upgrade?

    No point I moved from a 4790k @ 4.8Ghz to a 6850k (more PCI lanes than 6800). Sitting at a stable 4.4Ghz and its as quick per core as a 6700k, just more of them... I notice no difference. DDR4 is just another benchmark pleaser its not any quicker for real world uses.
  15. Fixing broken raid 0?

    Ok well this thread has gotten out of hand.... If you have changed the order of the cables then yes this will be the cause of your broken array. (Mobo expect Drive 1 to be in SATA port X) etc. You can attempt to fix it by trying to get the correct order again. What does Intel RST say about your RAID? To check if your RAID0 is trimming within windows use this command from a CMD: fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify You are wanting the result to = 0, if you get 1 then you DONT have trim enabled.
