  1. It looks like a good case, kinda pricey and I would prefer a little cheaper, but if I can’t find a better option by the time I start upgrades I’ll definitely look into it
  2. I have a 5 spare 500gb hard drives, I want to get a case that can easily fit them all, needs to be atleast ATX to fit my motherboard, preferably Under 100 dollars, I would prefer AT LEAST 3 built in 3.5 inch drive cases, and then if I really need to I can just set the others somewhere in the case and find a way to secure it, but no less then 3 actual drive cages,
  3. So, I have a couple of hard drives, 2 x1tb and a single 2 tb drive, I’m planning on putting the 1tb drives in a hardware raid then combine them with the 2tb with a software raid, the way I see it, Raid 0 on hard drives should increase the 4K and small file performance significantly, but does it? I’m fairly new to raid, I don’t really care for any sort of redundancy as the entire thing is strictly for games and non important files
  4. I figured that’s probably what I’d end up doing, I have a ram cache on my computer using ddr4 using primo cache, it helps even with my nvme Ssd, I know it wouldn’t be nearly as fast but I figured something of an 4-8 gb of ram cache on a hard drive may make a difference, oh well, I googled a few things and found a thing from like 2009 that is a 5.25 inch bay drive that supports ddr2 in a way that the I-ram did, but I couldn’t find it for cheaper then 500 dollars
  5. I have about 16 gigabytes of old ddr2 ram just laying around, from different computers I’ve had, and I’m trying to find a way to use it in something of a ram cache/scratch disk, in a similar way to a gigabyte I-RAM did, I can only find DDR models of the I-ram sadly, anyone know of similar products I could get? Or just a way to do this in another way?
  6. It’s not an issue about graphics, it’s just it’s hard to see texts and icons on my tv from where I sit, which is why I want to find a way to zoom the entire system in a similar manor to display scaling on windows
  7. I’m relatively new to linux, but I have an old core2quad system that I’m using as an HTPC, and i use it on a 73 inch 1080p TV, which as you’ll probably quickly guess makes things kind of difficult to see on occasion, and I’ve been trying to find tools that allow for something similar to the system wide zoom features from windows 10, maybe linuxlite is just not ment for something like this? If so I would happily take recommendations for other distros to try
  8. I mean something similar to a bsel mod for older cpus, blocking parts of the pins that let the motherboard read what speed the part should run at
  9. On a few older systems I’ve messed with, stuff like bsel modding can provide an overclock, and I was wondering if there was some way to do something similar to ram? Like, say I have ram slower then the motherboards maximum speed it supports, but the bios doesn’t allow for ram overclocking, would it be possible to block off a pin or something that tells the motherboard what speed the ram should run at so that it defaults to its maximum rated speed? I’ve never messed with fam overclocking before so please correct me if there is extra steps I’m missing
  10. I’ve used software raid before on similar drives, but I’ve recently ran out of space on my main rig , which has a single 1tb drive,and I was planning on moving 2 of my 500 gb drives into it and running it in raid 0, then I realized that it makes a 1tb volume once put together, would it be possible to create that 1 tb volume using software raid 0, then put the 2 separate volumes together in another raid 0
  11. Haha actually I made a mistake, somehow when I was messing with different connectors seeing what had power and what didn’t, I unplugged my power button, so when I drained the caps and tried to turn it on the button wasn’t connected, which is why nothing responded, I connected the button and everything worked fine, guess I just need to stop using that 4 ghz oc profile
  12. Tried this, now the whole system is unresponsive, the molex fans also don’t power on and the USB ports don’t supply power (forgot to add in original post, the USB ports still provided power when the psu was turned on, even though they are connected to the motherboard
  13. I have an Inspiron 5675 prebuilt with a Ryan’s 5 1400 and a gtx 1060 6gb, I was running the CPU and gpu overclocked and in the middle of a game the system turned off, I tried resetting it and pressing the power button does nothing but turn on 2 of the molex powered fans I modded into the case, nothing directly connected to the motherboard does anything, I’ve cleared the cmos and even tried a different gpu, I was running the cpu at a pretty heavy 4 ghz OC with 1.45 volts on the core, I normally only run that for a short period though, is it possible I somehow fried the motherboard? Or maybe it’s another issue? The computer doesn’t play any sort of beep codes or show any sort of power button lights, the motherboard responds to nothing except a press from the power button which only turns on the power supply and that’s it
  14. everything seems fine, but the only other thing i can think is a fresh install of windows 10. and im trying to avoid that as i have a lot of stuff on this drive, i have tried a few different graphics driver versions and they all have the same issue
  15. from some benchmarks i found, you should not run into much of a bottleneck if you went with something like the new GTX 1660 TI or even an RTX 2060, which has a performance similar to a GTX1070 and GTX 1070 TI respectively , and as discussed here, you should not see much of a bottleneck, if you are dead set on playing in that resolution though, you may run into an issue, since you have a limited budget i would recommend an I7 4790 if you absolutely have to upgrade, as you can find one used for around 200 USD on ebay,
