  1. Hello, so I have a new idea for a project I want to do, I am looking at making a dual opteron 24 core build, which would mainly be used as my new home server, and honestly, just a fun project to see what you can *do* with 24 cores and tons of DDR2 server RAM. My idea here is to have it be near $100 (give or take $50), which I *believe* is possible but I am looking for some advice as to which parts to use, my current part ideas are: CPUs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-2-AMD-Opteron-6174-12-Core-2-20GHz-CPUs-G34-OS6174WKTCEG0-Magny-Cours/173860181848?epid=1838588195&hash=item287adfd758:g:hf8AAOSwo8NcesHI Motherboard: Unknown, please suggest a relatively affordable one that works with the CPUs, has tons of RAM slots and uses DDR2 RAM (preferably around $30-$40 or less if possible) CPU cooler: Really dont want super loud fans, possibly looking at passive cooling (again, please suggest ones that are fairly affordable) RAM: Likely 64GB DDR2 ECC RAM, since its not that expensive PSU: WIll likely reuse one from an old optiplex I have laying around Storage: Will use a 500GB HDD that I already have Please give me any suggestions or parts that would work, thanks so much! Also if there is a different combo of parts that dosent use the same CPUs I listed, thats fine too as long as its 24 cores. Not exactly sure if there is even any socket G34 boards that support DDR2 but let me know. I was looking at something mainly like this:

    Bitlocker USB *or* Password possible?

    I figured out how to do it, just enable the 'Allow Bitlocker without a compatible TPM" group policy, then go to encrypt the drive and select PASSWORD (not USB), enter your password, then press the button to *save the file to a USB*. Now, once its encrypted it should simply continue booting up if the USB is plugged in, and if not, request the password.

    Bitlocker USB *or* Password possible?

    Mhm, I have been able to get password bitlocker working on this PC before (since it dosent have a TPM module), but I cant seem to find any option to use a USB also
  4. Hi, so I have been trying to figure this out for a bit now, im trying to do bitlocker encryption on my NVME drive, which has Windows on it. The only issue is that I want to be able to use a password as sort of a 'backup' method if the USB isint plugged in. In other words, if im at my PC and the USB is plugged in and I rebooted it, it would just use the USB to authorize it. But if I were to take the USB out and reboot my PC, it would then prompt for a password. Is this possible in any way, I haven't found anything online.
  5. I will definitely look into getting a B450 board then, thanks for the info
  6. I have a Ryzen 5 2600X, which apparently is overclocking even on my A320M-HDV board as ive seen it go above the base clock a few times even though you technically cant overclock on the A320 boards. (It goes 3.8-3.9 when running cinebench)
  7. Hello, I am looking to upgrade my PC's motherboard as I currently have a A320M-HDV which cant overclock, and I am wondering what is the best possible motherboard I could get in the $60-70 price range (new only) that allows for overclocking?
  8. So I recently got the S10+ and I saw that Samsung had apparently made a cryptocurrency wallet for S10 devices only, I went looking on the galaxy store for it but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know what to search for it, or did they just remove it?

    RX 480 fans keep turning off

    I was actually able to fix this simply by switching 'Speed/Temperature' from Automatic to Manual, now the fan stays on and works fine.

    RX 480 fans keep turning off

    I have checked that before, and the fans do indeed stop spinning when it says 0RPM after a reboot.
  11. Alright so I have been having a bit of an issue lately with my GPU, I recently decided to turn off 'Zero RPM' so that the GPU is always cooled (literally makes no sense to *not* have the fans on, since there is really no noise difference and it does bring the idle and small load temps down quite a bit vs Zero RPM). Anyways, I will switch off Zero RPM, it will work fine and have the fans running for as long as the PC stays on, but once the PC goes in sleep mode or reboots, the fan is stuck at 0RPM and the only way to start it again is to Turn on Zero RPM, save, Turn off Zero RPM, save, then it works and the fans turn on. What is the issue here, is Radeon Settings just not saving my config? (Want to note that even when Zero RPM decides to re-enable, the setting shown in Radeon Settings is still set to 'off') Screenshot when Zero RPM is turned off, and working properly:
  12. I might look into that, but there is some software I use for one of my classes that is only available for Windows and Mac
  13. Hi, so I am looking for a quite small, thin, cheap, and somewhat powerful laptop for school (web browsing and some other windows software), I have seen a few online that might fit my criteria but I wanted to see if anyone here could help. My budget for this is around $100-$200 (preferably more near $100). It dosent really matter if it has a Celeron CPU as long as its not shit and I would like at least 4GB of RAM. If anyone could help me, that would be great! (Dosent have to be new, however that would be preferred)

    Corsair Vengence Killer?

    I mean, you could just buy a cheap Windows key off ebay to save $100 (which is what I have done for all my builds, never had a problem)
  15. Ok so heres my problem, I have 2 servers, a NAS which is used only for storage, and another linux home server that is basically for anything else such as a Webserver, VPN, Mail forwarder, etc. The problem is I can only port forward port 80 on one of these devices, and at the moment I am forwarding my 'everything else' server, as it serves my 2 websites. However I would also like to be able to access my NAS Web GUI page over the internet as well, currently I have all my domains pointing to my 'everything else' server which is running vesta (for the webserver and mail), it handles seperate websites for each domain. Would it be possible to point another subdomain such as 'storage' to my same IP, and then make a simple HTML page for the subdomain that has a webview that connects to the local NAS and then forwards the content to the HTML page on the storage subdomain, even though the NAS isint available on the internet, so the webview would be for a local IP such as 192.168.x.x I know this sounds a bit confusing, if you have any questions, just ask.
