  1. Hello, I am currently running a modded minecraft forge server for some friends on a dedicated pc Specs of the server: Intel Xeon 1650 v2 16gb (4x4gb) ddr3 1866mhz ECC memory 2tb Seagate 7200rpm HDD Radeon HD 7470 gpu (just so I have a display) Windows 10, (not linux sorry) (its a slightly modified HP Z420 if that helps) The issue is that server often lags and I am unsure as to why. There's never more than 3 people on a time It is wired through a gigabit ethernet connection on a 1000mbs internet plan so i dont think its the internet I would believe that the Xeon would be strong enough to handle the server I have 12gb of the 16gb of memory allocated to the server Temps don't seem to be an issue as I've monitored them while the server was in use and never passed or came close to the threshold of throttling I'm just not sure why it is doing it.The mods are relatively light minus a couple biome generating mods. Is it the CPU? Is it the HDD? Or is it something I am missing? Bonus question: If it is the CPU, would moving the server to a 9th gen i5 help a lot or would there be little improvement?
  2. Hello all, I am looking for some advice/suggestions for a recent prebuilt I picked up. I saw this beauty on the used market and managed to snag it for $150 : https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-ideacentre-720-18asu-desktop-amd-ryzen-5-series-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-silver/5887606.p?skuId=5887606 Specs: Ryzen 5 1400 1tb WD Blue HDD Radeon R5 340 2gb GPU 8gb (2x4gb) 2400mhz RAM 250w Lenovo Proprietary PSU Everything works perfectly Here's the deal: I'm unsure if I should upgrade it to sell for a potential larger profit, sell as is for some profit, or turn it into some type of home server thingy Potential upgrade I had in mind: Add a small SSD boot drive Swap gpu for a GTX 1650 swap ram for 16gb (2x8gb) kit Questions for this potential upgrade route: The lenovo case doesn't have much ventilation so I am worried that thermals may be an issue. It has one exhaust fan in the back and large side vent. Would thermals be an issue even though the 1650 is such a low power card? It would most likely be a single fan card for dimension reasons. I estimate that these upgrades would bring the total project cost to about $370-$400 usd. How much do you think I'd be able to sell it for? Another issue is the GPU's psu requirement. The upgraded specs according to pcpartpicker would draw close to 180w of total power, definately under 250w. I am worried because the 1650 has a minimum of a 300w psu need. I would get a new psu but because it doesnt use standard connectors (thanks lenovo) this would't be impossible with the oem motherboard. Would this be ok? Or is there an adapter I can buy?

I don't have any experience with dealing with blue screens and diagnostics or anything of the sort so I was hoping someone could help me or at least point me in the right direction on what to do next.
  4. Hello, I've recently built a brand new pc and have been having frequent blue screens at random times. The error code I get is a Critical_Structure_Corruption This happens at random times. It'll happen when I'm playing video games, writing an essay, surfing the web, watching a video, or even while idle. Please help!

  6. I want to thank you for this posting this!! I live nowhere near a microcenter so I was bummed out that it was in-store only. I've heard stories of Staples being very lenient on their price match policy and look!! $113 for a 2700x!! Anyone who doesn't live near a Microcenter should try this! Staples has many components on their website so go to a Staples in person to price match. Find a kiosk and find the component on their website. Show the Microcenter price to an employee and boom! Their 110% price match guarantee makes it even better than Microcenter!

I am trying to keep the entire pc under $500 The server will have no more than 10 people at a time but I do want to experiment with mods I've never built a dedicated server before so any help appreciated.
  8. Hello all, I'm currently in a specific situation and would like some advice on the matter. The family computer at my parent's house is ancient so I agreed to help and build them a new one. They wanted a good pc that would't cost anything. My sibling also wanted to be able to do some gaming on it. I purchased an old Dell Optiplex on Ebay with an I7 3770 as a base for the build. I bought a new Seasonic 500w PSU, some used ram, and a used RX 580 to add. I did get it working for about a week before the motherboard started having problems. I've already put about 400 into all of these parts and dont want to put much more out. I also am thinking of getting a new case as the stock optiplex offers little cooling Motherboard options im looking at include a New chinese Jingsha one and a used Gigabyte one on Aliexpress: https://www.newegg.com/p/1JW-00D3-00006?Description=lga 1155&cm_re=lga_1155-_-9SIAGKC9745382-_-Product https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32918067663.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.749344f4AYxU9u&algo_pvid=2a26189-5f75-4173-9807-92f367304f83&algo_expid=2a261d89-5f75-4173-9807-92f367304f83-7&btsid=40301fc6-3a6e-4697-a137-3fdf27c9b54e&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3,searchweb201603_52 Case options include these: https://www.newegg.com/midnight-black-cooler-master-n-series-microatx-mini-tower/p/N82E16811119274 https://www.newegg.com/black-thermaltake-versa-h15-micro-atx-tower/p/N82E16811133347 https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16811353049 Any help or recommendations welcome:
  9. Hello, I've recently built a new pc and started playing Rocket League again I've been off the game for a couple weeks so I'm not sure if this is a know bug/glitch with the recent update or if my computer has a problem. During kickoff, one of the corner full-boosts is gone but when I drive over it I still get the boost as if it was there. The boost then respawns as normal and doesn't go invisible but during random parts of a match another boost will go invisible and perform the same. Anyone else have this issue?
  10. Nvidia is typically sold out. Discount compared to Newegg and eBay prices. Just wanted to let people know that there is a place that still has some in stock at Nvidia prices.
  11. Anybody looking for a Founders Edition Super GPU shouldn't pay anything higher than MSRP! Don't pay any premiums. Best Buy has a number of Super Founders Editions still in stock at their base price with a free copy of Modern Warfare Free Shipping as well! https://www.bestbuy.com/site/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2060-super-8gb-gddr6-pci-express-graphics-card-black-silver/6361329.p?skuId=6361329 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/nvidia-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8gb-gddr6-pci-express-3-0-graphics-card-black-silver/6361328.p?skuId=6361328 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/nvidia-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080-super-8gb-gddr6-pci-express-3-0-graphics-card-black-silver/6361326.p?skuId=6361326
  12. Hi all! Quick question, I have an Asus Gaming Tuf Wifi x570 motherboard Like most x570 motherboards, the board has a fan for the chipset My 2060 super FE covers about half the fan with little clearance between the 2 Is this an issue?? Its not covered completely but it I am concerned it is hindering its cooling. Anyone else have this issue?
