  1. Yeah the server has a max of maybe 10 people online at peak hours so I guess it wont be a problem. Thanks for the help. @TofuHaroto
  2. Ok thanks Should I worry about how it is non-EEC @TofuHaroto
  3. So I have an old computer that I am upgrading to be a Minecraft server, and if you didn't know they need a lot of memory. The computer I am upgrading is an old prebuilt with the following specs: CPU: Pentium G630 (REPLACING with Core I5 2500) Mobo: chipset: H61 socket: LGA 1155 Memory: 8gb 2x4 DDR3 1333Mhz (REPLACING with 16gb 2x8) SSD: 500gb sata 2.5in PSU: 220w (according to newegg) PCIE WIFI card If you look on Newegg it says it only comes with 4gb of ram but the one I have was upgraded to 8gb a long time ago. Now I am interested in buying the following ram and I just want to make Shure it is compatible: https://www.newegg.com/p/0RN-00A3-000K8 I'm pretty Shure it is compatible but I want to here from someone else before buying. If you want more background here are some other threads I made about this: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1203168-upgrading-an-old-pentium-computer-for-a-minecraft-server https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1204082-do-i-need-a-new-psu-for-upgrade
  4. @VEXICUS @YT_DomDaBomb20 So I have an update: I have decided to go with a Core i5 2500, I chose this because Minecraft servers dont need crazy server performance at least for the CPU. With the extra money I choose 16gb of ram https://www.newegg.com/p/0RN-00A3-000K8?Item=9SIA56XA8D6672&Description=16gb ddr3&cm_re=16gb_ddr3-_-9SIA56XA8D6672-_-Product&quicklink=true Ram is essential for Minecraft servers. My only question is whether this this ram is compatible. I think it is because I currently have 8gb of ddr3 1333mhz 2x4.
  5. Thanks @SavageNeo and @Ralf I probably wont replace it then.
  6. So I have a decently old small form factor PC that I am upgrading to use as a Minecraft server. The current specs of the computer are: CPU: Pentium G630 (REPLACING with Core I7 2600) Mobo: chipset: H61 socket: LGA 1155 Memory: 8gb 2x4 DDR3 1333Mhz (REPLACING with 16gb 2x8) SSD: 500gb sata 2.5in PSU: 220w (according to newegg) DVD-Rom (its 2020 not really necessary to keep) PCI wifi card I plan on replacing the CPU for a core I7 2600, and possibly replacing the ram for 16gb. I put this into Newegg's PSU calc and it said that it would take 191watts which is very close to the 220w that the PSU is rated for. My question is should I get a better PSU to power everything? If I do need a new PSU I have no idea what form factor to get. Here are some pictures:
  7. So I have never really bought much off of eBay and I am just wondering if it is safe to buy a used processor. I will watch a few auctions but this seems like a pretty good deal for $70 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-i7-2600-3-40GHz-8MB-Socket-LGA1155-CPU-Quad-Core-Processor-SR00B/153957858204?epid=3031098161&hash=item23d89a7b9c%3Ag%3A1JgAAOSwPWVe1rM5&LH_ItemCondition=1000|1500|2000|2500|3000&LH_BIN=1#rwid Also for the power supply newegg has it listed for 220 watts. The Pentium in there right now has a TDP of 65w but the i7 has a TDP of 95. that's only a 30w increase but I don't know weather I would need a. I took some pictures of the power supply but I dont know what form factor I need.
  8. At this point I am just trying to figure out where to buy it from. Here are a few eBay listings I found: https://www.ebay.com/p/109598386?iid=164226918161 (auction) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-i7-2600-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-3-80-GHz-Used-WITH-COOLER/174302091811?hash=item289536da23:g:03UAAOSwDM5e1CD0 (auction w/cooler) https://www.ebay.com/p/109584005?iid=383572887078 Here is one from Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Intel-Core-i7-2600-Quad-Core-Processor-3-4-GHz-8-MB-Cache-LGA-1155-BX80623I72600/16472585?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=1148 I assume it is as the Pentium G630 is a LGA 1155.
  9. Alright I guess I will go with the 2600 I'm just trying to figure out where to buy it from. I have never really bought much off the used market. So my main options for buying it are from eBay or from some random sketchy site for under $100 or buy it from a reputable seller for $150. @YT_DomDaBomb20
  10. I could go with the i7 2600 but I also think that i7 3770 is also compatible. When looking at this lisiting https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/52806/intel-h61-express-chipset.html My only other concern is where to buy them. @YT_DomDaBomb20
  11. Budget: $150 USD Country: United States I run a small Minecraft server that my friends play on there are at most 15 active players. Currently I run it off of an Intel NUC (NUC8i3CYSM) and recently we have experienced lots of lag. I thought about upgrading it but because of the small form factor it seemed difficult. The only easy upgrades for the NUC are Ram and storage which aren't the largest bottlenecks. I believe that the CPU is the bottleneck because it is often at 100% load especially during peak hours on the server when up to 7 people may be online the lag can get very bad and the server sometimes will crash. So to upgrade the CPU for the NUC is not really an option that I am aware of. Luckily I have an old Gateway computer with a Pentium G630 and a new SSD + 8gb Ram. You can find further details here https://www.newegg.com/gateway-sx-series-sx2865-ur11p-student-home-office/p/N82E16883113219 The Pentium G630 is not as good as the NUC but I am interested in upgrading it to something better that is supported by the intel H61 chipset. Here is where I need some help I want to decide which processor I can go with within my budget and if I need a new power supply. If there are better options within my budget please tell me. I have built a computer before so I have some experience.
  12. I have a Asus Prime X470-Pro and it has a 4 pin RGB header on it. I was hoping to be able to use 3-Pin addressable RGB Strips with it. Is there any type of adapter I can use to be able to maintain the addressability.
  13. I dont have the Budget for a 3700X Even if I drop to 16gb
  14. probably wont go to 240hz. 144hz is more reasonable. The reason I cant get the 3600 is because ASUS MOBOs dont have flashback ability that I know of. also the 2700x has 8 cores vs 6 allowing for better performance in rendering, because I wont just be gaming. I Dont really like buying used and prefer new and definitely want the 580 8gb for they have versions for $150 Although with the monitor it might be over budget that is okay. Here is what I have now.

  15. Would this be good memory. I know this is 32gb but I am willing to spend that so it is future proof and better for large video projects.
