    Should I Get New Headphones?

    No, Dont bother.
  2. FloRolf


    No, i was saying exactly that:
  3. Imo the last big update, what like 2 years ago, already killed it.
  4. FloRolf


    The only difference really is that the 470 has more pcie lanes so for itx with a dgpu and M.2 ssd it's fine.
  5. Hold on there buddy, I don't think your employer likes that you upload their data to mega or mediafire, lmao. If you really want and are allowed to take the data, get a USB stick from your IT.

    Name is ™ Yeah I figured two usb is a safe way to go. Ofc I'll probably also backup on the array aswell. Not sure if I'll compress my stuff. I mean, I buy Blurays because of the quality over Netflix and if my network can handle it, why not stream in full quality? First off, thanks m8, I really appreciate it! Hope to see you around this thread to debunk some mysteries and show my mistakes About the cache, the idea was to cache game data mainly. Ofc streaming a movie or storing a picture won't benefit but the intention was that playing a certain game for a couple weeks will essentially cache it into the SSD and load it up faster. My "small" 16gb ram won't suffice. Correct me if I'm wrong for this kind of situation. If it doesn't work out or I won't see any noticeable difference I'll just remove the drive and put it in another PC as boot drive also, my RaidZ2 should in theory (https://calomel.org/zfs_raid_speed_capacity.html) be pretty fast already so it might not be worth it at all. Second, yes I know 1gb/1tb isn't actually true but more is always better and I think 16gb isn't overkill by any means. As for ECC, i might replace mine with ecc once prices come down. Good thing is, I can always swap stuff out and reuse this ram in other systems. Do you think it's worth it in my use cases though? I'm not doing any serious work, just saving pics and streaming media. From what I've read VMs work quite fine on FreeNAS but it's just for basic VM experience anyways so if it doesn't work, it doesn't matter Thanks again!
  7. Another day, another Boss-NAS update!

    [Build-Log] FreeNAS "Boss-NAS" by FloRolf

    Aaaaand another update! Went full SYW and got myself a used but perfect condition Fractal Design R5 which even has acustic insulation. I know it's quite huge for a NAS but due to my need of the ATX board and at least 6 HDD Slots it's the best I could think of. Plus is was just 50€. Here are a few pics of: The case: The system finally inside the case and not full ghett0 mode on the tablet: Also some nicer SSD mounting and shitty cable management. I'll remanage the cables once I have all of my HDDs. One issue is, that the SATA power cable supplied by the PSU is not made for SSDs installed next to each other so I had to use a Molex to SATA adapter. i'll probably order another SATA PSU cable from Seasonic though so i dont need Molex anymore.
  9. What exactly do you mean by lag? Like when moving a window on the desktop it feels choppy? Fps drops in games or just lags? Is vysnc on or off? Display set to at least 60hz? Edit: oh and welcome to the forums. Make sure you use the "quote" button so people you are responding too see that you replied.
  10. Wow wth. But like the others in your comment section already suggested, return that thing. Can believe Samsung sells something like this at that price point. Go get an LG Oled instead.
  11. What about R7? You can get the 1700X for like $160 easily. Only thing rn that is holding new platforms back in price/performance against old Xeons is the crazy expensive dram.

    1. Do not expect any profit for at least a year
  13. Random idea:


    SYW just in reverse. Everybody gets the exact same system and you have to sell everything. The team that gets more money back wins. 

    Selling the whole system at once isn't allowed though as that might end the game in 5minutes :P

      While the series would probably be edited shorter, I think this could be a good one off

  14. Man, these Zen 2 Rumors are becoming really dense. If that 16Core AM4 Cpu is true then ... oh my god....



    Also, early Boss-NAS update:


    1. DocSwag


      I doubt a 16 core... If they did a 16 core the vrms on many boards just wouldn't be able to handle it. But 12 core could be possible

    2. FloRolf


      The rumors are also saying that you need a new board for the 16core because of that reason. Apparently the other CPUs are fine with current AM4 boards tho.

    Does this exist?

    Nope, as far as i can see it we are both correct as there are two JBOD modes. A spanned and a unspanned mode. Spanned is the way you describe it and unspanned the way i describe it, which is also called "Vanilla-JBOD". So again, how many drives do you actually want to use?
