  1. I'm planning on building a NAS and i'm planning to start off with 4x8tb drives but because i don't have any spare components so i'm looking in buying a base system for my build off of Craigslist would this be a good base system? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/N2pHBZ edit: is it worth replacing the PSU and CPU cooler with something newer?
  2. For cheap CPU's I would usually go for something used which usually results in something like the facebook marketplace or Australian version of craigslist you could also try looking for engineering samples of CPU's on eBay or aliexpress but these CPU's can usually only run on select motherboards and require specific BIOS versions in addition to probably having lower clock speeds and cut down feature set. Probably your last option would be to look on Aliexpress for some cheap Xeons on the x79 platform as a lot of servers are retiring this line of CPU's But these will also not be of the latest-gen.
  3. This may work for you but I'm not sure that they will ship to Ireland https://slickdeals.net/f/13266040-hp-pavilion-15z-touch-laptop-ryzen-3500u-16gb-ddr4-256gb-ssd-15-6-1080p-532-free-shipping?src=frontpage
  4. Nice build personally I feel like a 850W power supply is a bit overkill but its good if you want to upgrade to something more power hungry and do a good amount of Overclocking
  5. I don't think the updated the BIOS all the way to ryzen 3000 compatibility the reason I think that is because I built a PC with the same MOBO and when we tried to start it up with out the BIOS update it exhibited similar problems but after the BIOS update it worked perfectly fine. you could try going to a store with a relaxed return policy(Best buy worked for us) and buy a ryzen 2000 processor and use it to try to update if it doesn't work with that chip then its a RAM or mobo problem. to narrow down beyond here i would try putting only a single stick of RAM in and trying all of the slots with both of the ram sticks and if it doesn't work then then most likely its a MOBO problem
  6. Honestly I don't think the Asrock BIOS is that bad(unless they changed it from the x99 days) it just gets some getting used to
  7. Also another thing to consider is if you have a microcenter near by then you can get a $50 discount if you buy both the mobo and cpu form them
  8. I just noticed we are using the same mobo but yours is $35 more expensive
  9. as for the PSU you have a point
  10. if you planing to use this for an HTPC then he probably won't need VRM that powerful unless he decides to OC
  11. you could also use this case if you want something smaller: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/YLDzK8/silverstone-case-sstsg11b
  12. the ssd is from newegg with the fantastic sale

  14. I'm also working on a build if you want another perspective on a build
  15. 1. you may but the likelihood is there that it is already updated due to how old the mobo is 2.you won't feel much of a difference in the ssd but if you transfer a lot of files there will defiantly be a difference
