    You need special USB Drives which I don't happen to have.

    retro machine that runs native xp , which is apparently going to be a rare thing pretty soon. 

    it would be nice to just have a machine that always works and is meant for computing tasks as opposed to our "windows 10 needs to upload your nudes to the nsa today" method we're currently enjoying from microsoft.

    It runs Windows 10 64-bit just fine.

  3. I have a motherboard/cpu/ram combo from very old system:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2C2T@2.11GHz

    Gigabyte GA-M61SME-S2 (Nvidia Nforce 405 /Geforce 6100 chipset)
    2x AMD only DDR2 4GB sticks (max supported 8GB)


    4 USB 1.1/2.0 ports

    2 PS/2 ports

    Realtek audio

    Realtek 10/100 Lan

    1 PCIE 16X slot

    1 PCIE 1x slot

    2 PCI slots

    2 DIMM Slots

    Google the model number for more info


    What can I do with it other than recycling it?


    P.S. I have an AMD stock cooler on hand.

    well that's what i get for not googling the difference between the "a" and "plus". just put a rig together last night with the plus, and it had raid support, and i guessed that'd be the same. 

    yeah, software raid or a RAID card would be what you'd need then. don't write off the raid card instantly though, sometimes you can get em super cheap from companies selling off old stuff. Hell, i got a quad intel gigabit NIC for like 30 bucks last year. freaking great.

    I can get an LSI 9260-8i for like 15% of the MSRP BRAND NEW

    but there aren't any PCI-E slots on the board (except the one with the GTX 1050) that would fit the RAID card.

    Yep, you're all good. Assuming you also have the power cables. In fact, you should be able to RAID them on that board as well if you want, so you're all set. Just make sure to set the SATA controller mode in the BIOS to RAID from AHCI if you plan to do that.

    Motherboard doesn't support RAID according to the ASUS website

    I can use software RAID in windows though

  6. I have a PC with the following components.

    ASUS Prime B250M-A

    intel Core i3-7100
    intel stock cooler

    8GB of Crucial DDR4-2400

    Windows 10 PRO

    GALAX GTX 1050

    Kingston 128GB M.2 SSD

    Hitachi 250GB 7200rpm Hard drive

    EVGA 450W 80+ Bronze Non Modular Power Supply

    Fractal Design Node 605

    Sony Blu-ray Optical drive

    2 Noctua NF-F12 ippc 3000RPM fans


    I want to add 2 H3IKNAS600012872SWW HGST 6TB Drives to double it as a nas

    Will it work?

    I'm pretty sure it runs on an ARM CPU, so only Windows 10S with custom Kernels.  Which sucks.

    Microsoft and Quallcomm got the full-fat windows 10 running on a snapdragon 835 (which is an ARM CPU) with programs designed for x86 working fine
