  1. would cooler master ma620p or ma610p do the job just fine? I don't really care about the temp as long as they don't throttle
  2. Do i need water cooler for overclocking to 5ghz for 9700k? I am thinking about a ma610p or a ma 620p, which one will be better?
  3. Should I go with Barracuda pro?
  4. I will be probably doing some overclocking, I just thought a 750w will be good for it. (with upgrade ability for other parts considered) I don't really know what a hybrd drive does and I will probably go with a barracuda pro compute instead (the one with 5 years of warranty). Does the pro really matter by the way? A normal barracuda compute is like 30-40 bucks cheaper.
  5. Some gaming, some photoshopping and video editing, and some light streaming. I will probably be using it for a while so I went with higher specs than I need.
  6. The following is my specs with price and link, can someone please help check for incompatiabilities and bottlenecks? Suggestions are also welcome.

  7. I watched the new video today on the pocophone, I was wondering if the method works for other phones like samsung, alcatel, and lenovo. Planning to flash the firmware because those companies doesn't give you a lot of software support. I guess android 7 nano version will need the same steps?
  8. I got this weird letter p all over the place on my server when I logged on to it, I used a mac for this, when I hit ctrl + c, those weird syncing thing appeared (2nd pic). Does anyone know what's happening?
  9. I just got two used Xeon E5530 CPU for collection purposes, I was wondering if I can delid them? Also, does anyone know a cheap motherboard that is compatible with this processors? It doesn't need to have two CPU slots but having two will be nice.

    Is this worth it?

    Yeah, I tried to play COD and GTA5 from it and it seemed ok if you have it on low effect on an older computer b/c the computer itself is slow, but I mainly use it for backup. I thought this machine is kind of a great deal but now I don't know if I should buy it.

    Is this worth it?

    He said I can buy par of it, so I guess RAM and PSU? That graphics is not very good but I feel like it can still run some large games at 1080p with mid effect? I don't know about the board though... It seems to be ok but I don't like AMD that much and it seemed to be a really old processor (I think it might be even worse that macbook air).

    I have 3 5400 rpm 1tb hard drives and I might do a raid or something...
  13. Is this listing on Craigslist worth the price? https://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/sop/d/amd-ak-asus-motherboardram/6684502662.html
  14. So if I get something with 6c12t, those extra threads can be used for other programs and the system? I think I'm going to go with 6c12t or 8c8t, leaning towards 6c12t
