  1. Thanks for the list! I am quite new to choosing PSU's, so I was only kinda aware that Gold =/= good, but I was still under the assumption. With that said, my current PSU can't support my x5690 and a 1080 ti, much less an overclocked one. So wouldn't a second x5690 and an overclocked 1080 ti kinda be cutting it close with 650w, regardless of build quality?
  2. I have a Dell T5500 (essentially) with 2 X5690's, one of which isn't being used quite yet, and I have GTX 1080 Ti coming in soon. I would like some more experianced users to assist me in recommending a PSU to me, please. I do plan on overclocking the video card a modest amount, but not the CPU's (I can't). Currently I have a 525 watt PSU that has no 8 pin connector, so I am only able to use my current 1060 6gb with one Xeon. I am not getting anything below a 80+ Bronze rating. Is a 850w Gold PSU good enough? And before it's pointed out: Yes, I am fully aware the CPU being used bottlenecks gaming performance. I would like the conversation to focus on PSU assistance.
  3. System boots into Linux Mint on HDD, but won't boot to Windows 10 on SSD. It boots pass the DELL startup logo, then just sits on the black screen. All other hardware functions normally. BIOS is updated to latest revision for this model (A17). There have been reports and video evidence of windows 10 and SSD's working just fine on this system. The SSD is one I've been using for about a couple months and functions on other computers. If it helps my specifications are as follows: Intel Xeon W3530 @2.8Ghz Nvidia GTX 1060 6Gb 12Gb 1066Mhz DDR3 Memory (3x4Gbs) 500w DELL OEM PSU HDD: 500Gb Western Digital 7200RPM with Linux Mint version 18 SSD: 2Tb Samsung 860 Evo with the latest updates for Windows 10 EDIT 1: While in Linux, I can read data on the SSD and even move files from it. I, however, cannot write to the SSD even when acting as a Super User (admin). This includes moving files into the SSD from Linux and creating new ones.
  4. Ok thanks for the info! I think I understand. Just play it safe, and grab a new OS on a desktop Hard Drive
  5. You mean as in physically removing the drive from a laptop, then hooking it up? And what kind of errors could I get?
  6. I'm trying to to see if I can put an operating system from my laptop onto a Desktop. Is this only possible through transferring the files onto a "proper" desktop hard drive?
  7. Is it possible to use an operating system from a laptops hard drive on a desktop?
  8. Thanks for the suggestion. So this and the CPU should cooperate w/o any BIOS updates or anything of the sort?
  9. MSI Computer H110M ECO Motherboard http://amzn.to/2lE1X7E Intel i3 7100 CPU http://bit.ly/2llCkrK I can't tell if these two are compatible or not. What's messing me up is the CPU Page say But I can't find the motherboard's Chipset. The best I can get is H110M. Is this just the brand name?
  10. Thanks for the recommendation! I'll put it in the post so others can compare what I'm considering.
  11. I actually forgot about gaming at 1440p, I'll fix that.
