  1. In some cases the lowest speed memory can be overclocked to match the highest speed memory. I do not recommend you mix and match brands and speeds.
  2. The Intel Xeon E5 2660 is half the price for twice the cores!
  3. Last year Microsoft stated that starting with Intel Kaby Lake and later that older versions of Windows would no longer be supported. Technically Skylake-X is based on Skylake so in theory older versions of Windows should be fully supported. Does anybody have any Skylake-X CPUs they can use to confirm this theory?
  4. In certain cases such as this one an NVMe SSD can make sense.
  5. Getting a faster SSD will also improve performance.
  6. Yes, in fact some motherboards don't have any type of video ports such as VGA, DVI, Display Port, or HDMI.
  7. Yes, it will work.
  8. I would just buy the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+. They can be found on eBay for less than 10 bucks!
  9. The second one is no faster than a hard drive.
  10. workstation

    A mainstream Core i7 isn't exactly a "Workstation".
  11. I've had many serious issues with the Asus Z9PA-D8 motherboard. Constant RAID and driver problems along with memory errors.
  12. Do you have a case for two power supplies?
  13. There are lots of options except /p.
  14. I get "Invalid parameter - /p"
  15. I've used all of the utilities built into Windows and there are no improvements. There drive will be completely replaced once I successfully complete a backup.
