    recently moved, got fibre installed for the first time, yay, except it sucks, super unstable, packet loss galore, don't really know if its the network they installed that's bad or the configs they're using on the huawei spy router they left me, but while i don't get it fixed, i'm using my phone to at least play some dota without massive packet loss, question is..

    TL;DR: I have ethernet, and a 4g modem, 4g modem works better for gaming, (sadly), ethernet works best for youtubes. Is there a program that routes all dota/steam connections through the 4g modem, and routes everything else through the fibre? so i can do both at the same time without either eating my mobile data or getting crazy lag in games?


    edit: i did a quick google before i posted, found a thing called forcebindIP, but that thing is like, command-line stuff that " might" have worked on a win7 machine back in 2013...so....



  2. I know that intel is the industry standard but I don’t always have that much spare money to buy intel NICs. How do these brands stack up against intel?


    Primarily looking at 1GbE Nics


    1. Realtek - cheap, Common on lower end motherboards these days

    2. Broadcom - Super cheap second hand, often found in macs as well

    3. Atheros - These are on some old Gigabyte motherboards and idk if they are good

    4. Marvell - I have some old LGA775 motherboards that have these

    5. Nvidia Nforce - I have a AM2 Board that has this

    There is no magic pixie-dust inside Xeons, they're just CPUs. There is NO reason why one couldn't run any regular CPU 24/7/365 and plenty of people do that all the time, including me.

    On the AMD side Epyc and Ryzen have THE EXACT SAME DIE lol

  4. Specs:
    intel core i3-7100

    Asus B250F Gaming

    16GB DDR4

    LSI 9211-8i HBA card

    Boot Drive Not decided yet

    Data Drives:
    Excel Stor 80GB
    WD 160GB
    Seagate 160GB
    Hitachi 250GB
    HGST 500GB
    WD blue 500GB
    WD Black 500GB
    HGST 1TB
    Seagate 2TB
    HGST 6TB *2


    I want a Windows Home Server 1 replacement for this random pile of drives with proper supports and updates.

    2 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors supporting up to 2 SATA 3Gb/s devices
    M4A785D-M PRO
    5 xSATA 3 Gb/s ports Support RAID 0,1,10,JBOD


    Well, it's a clear winner for the M4A785D-M Pro in my books.
    As for the CPU, whichever has the most cores and lowest power usage that is compatible with the motherboard (I really don't know any of the old, low end AMD CPUs, maybe someone else can help you out there) 

    All CPUs are compatible with my Motherboards
    Both the Athlon II X4 640 and the Phenom X4 9550 are Quad core CPUs with a 95w TDP

    how many sticks do you have?

    can you try 1 stick at a time?

    do you have different ram to try?

    other than that you can keep trying. i have a build where installing ram is vary touchy. i took several hours of reinstalling to get it to work. just make sure it is perfectly straight and insert with even pressure

    Tried different configs,different sticks, All won’t work
