  1. What Crunchy said. Just don't wear gym shorts, those things create so much static for me. Just touch the metal part of the case every once in a while and you'll be fine.
  2. Are you sure you are booting for your new drive?
  3. I think he is saying if it gets to 100 WITH a water cooler is it better than using his stock cooler that hits 100 right now
  4. I know for Gskill I had to pay for shipping but I could go to whoever I wanted to ship it, so that isn't really weird. What is weird is the part I quoted you on though, that is just purely strange.
  5. Here is my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/P7WG29 The ram is $32 per module with needing to buy 2 at a time due to dual cpus So i'm looking at making an unraid nas/media server at the end of the month and I was wondering how much ram it would require. I would be starting out with a 10TB drive, Plex, 1-2 VMs, and whatever i find interesting in docker while adding a 10TB parity drive in mid October. My endgame is to just keep adding 10TB drives and eventually would just end up with 7x10TB data and 2 parity drives with Plex and 1-2 vms. This would be much much further down the road though. Just want to say now I know that this isn't a back up nor is it meant to be just mainly a media server and I would have backups of anything important on and off the nas. I've read that unraid doesn't require as much ram as freenas and that people regularly run with 8-16GB of ram for just their nas section. So what I am asking is how much ram would I need for my endgame because I would rather just get it now and not deal with getting it latter. I would need to go with 32GB,64GB,96GB because the sticks have to be added in pairs. I would appreciate any help~
  6. Sorry to say but it doesn't seem like it is going to work according to this https://www.dell.com/community/Desktops-General-Read-Only/Precision-490-cpu-upgrade-5xxx-series-processors/m-p/3255042/highlight/true#M764096 Edit: Supported motherboards Site 1: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Xeon/E5450_motherboards.html Site 2: https://www.delidded.com/lga-771-to-775-adapter/3/

  9. What do you mean it came with a heat pad? Was it a circular gray area on the bottom of the block? If so that is the thermal paste
  10. You will want something like these https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_1_14?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=m.2+nvme+enclosure&sprefix=m.2+nvme+enclo%2Caps%2C215&crid=28ILVUHTBFO58&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Am.2+nvme+enclosure
