  1. I don't mind learning the terminal stuff, that is part of why i am building this system is too learn, i just want to be able to learn it on my own time, and not be stuck having to use it just to get the system up and running with some programs i want to try...
  2. I have been thinking of doing that also and doing a triple boot but am unsure, I don't mind learning the terminal stuff, that is part of why i am building this system is too learn, i just want to be able to learn it on my own time, and not be stuck having to use it just to get the system up and running with some programs i want to try... I will get an installer for Pop OS and try it out.
  3. I am wanting to setup a dual boot workstation from parts i have, i already have the system put together and am now working Installing Windows. But i don't know which linux distro to install. The planned uses for this system is music creation, video editing and maybe some photo editing. one big thing is i want an easy way to install programs, because i tried unbuntu around 10 years ago, and the stuff i was trying to use it for wanted me to install via the terminal, and i kept having problems with getting it to work. The workstation is: I7 930 16GB DDR3 GTX 680 If you need any more info please let me know, and thank you for all the help.
  4. Ok thank you. What kind of overclock should I shoot for with that CPU and Cooler on the ASUS board?
  5. I am building an HTPC using parts I have lying around, and all my AM3 boards died, so I i got to go to using my 775 stuff. The 2 boards i have are: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813128358 ASUS P5Q Turbo https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813131375 The rest of the parts i will be using: Core 2 Quad Q8400 Cooler Master TX3 4x 2GB DDR2 800Mhz MSI GTS 450 1GB Cooler Master RS-500-PCAR-A3 4x Seagate SATA 7200RPM HDD Thank you guys for the help.
  6. The display worked fine when i used to to test another know working system, and it worked fine.
  7. Well the parts i am working with for this is going to end up being a home server, but it is AMD. The 2 cpu's i have tried are Phenom II X4 925. The GPU is an old GTS 450. The boards are the following: MSI 970A-G46 Biostar TA790GX A3+ Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P So far i checked the MSI and Gigabyte in and out of the case, and on the Gigabyte i did try with the GPU and with onboard... I am about to try and check the last board outside of the case, i will post back how it goes... Last board checked out of case and with the onboard and still no post...
  8. I have tried 2 of the boards outside the case and so far nothing... What are the chances of 3 boards dying for no reason? Because i tested them 2 months ago and they were all working, i just could not use them yet because i was packing up for a move...
  9. I was putting together a system with used parts i had lying around and i got everything hooked up right and I get no post, fans and lights on but no signal to monitor. So I tried different ram and same results,I then swapped out the board with one that happened to have a matching CPU, still the same. I tried a 3rd board with one of the CPU's and still the same. I also tried 3 different PSU's and again the same, I also tested those same PSU's in a known working system and they all work. Before I go tearing down a perfectly working system to test 3 possible dead boards, I would like to know if there is a chance that maybe it is the case? Maybe it is grounding in some way? Should I try another case first? Or test the boards in the known working system first?
  10. I am putting together a server from parts I have and the only spare PSU I have is an older one with more Molex than Sata. My question is there such thing as a safe Molex to Sata power adapter? Or would a Sata power splitter be better? I don't have the funds for a new PSU... If it will help here is the PSU I have https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Thermal-TM-420-PMSR-Desktop/dp/B00WQO79HA Also here is the specs for the server if it helps. AMD Phenom II X4 925 MSI 970A-G46 8GB of RAM Nvidia GT 240 6x Seagate 500GB HDD If there is no safe way to get this PSU working for this, what is the cheapest PSU you would suggest for this? And I will try to sell some of my other parts to pay for it.
  11. This is what came up with tell me what you think.

  13. I am building 3 systems out of used parts I have lying around, and I have most of the parts picked. I want to get the best out of each system but I will admit i don't know much about ram beyond the Mhz and the capacity. Knowing what to look for will help me pick out the best sticks out of all my ram. So it it would help to know more about different ram specs, and how they will what is more important for each system. The first system is going to be going to be a workstation, i think i am going to dual boot it(windows and linux) and i plan to do music creation on it, but i also want to use it to try out different video editing and photo editing programs to try and find one i like. The second system is going to be a server, it will be a game server sometimes for my friends and i,but i may also use it as a NAS and/or mabye even install plex on it. The last one is going to be an HTPC that will be streaming stuff from Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, but i will also be doing steam in home streaming, and some PS2 emulation. Thank you guys for the help.
  14. I am building 3 systems out of used parts I have lying around, and I have most of the parts picked. I want to get the best out of each system but I will admit i don't know much about ram beyond the Mhz... So I thought that maybe you guys could help me pick the best RAM for each system out of the ram I have. The systems: Workstation: I7 930 with an Intel DX58SO + Asus GTX 680 Server: X4 925 with an MSI 970A-G46 + Asus gt 240 HTPC: FX-6100 with an Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 + MSI GTS 450 If you need more info on the systems let me know. I am willing to do some minor overclocking on the CPU's, and maybe go farther when I get better cooling. I also do plan to look for a better GPU for the HTPC as soon as I can. Here is an in-depth list of all my DDR3 RAM: 1x 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz 1x G.Skill F3-1600C11-8GNT 1x 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz 1x PNY 64C0MHHHJ-HS 2x 2GB DDR3 1866Mhz 2x Micron MT9JSF25672AZ-1G9K1ZE 4x 2GB DDR3 1600Mhz 2x Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 2x Crucial CT25664BA160B.C16FKR2 10x 2GB DDR3 1333Mhz 1x Kingston KP223C-ELD 1x Nanya NT2GC64B8HC0NF-CG 1x Pacific Sun Memory X25642133p 2x Samsung M378B5773DH0-CH9 2x ASint SLZ3128M8-EDJED 3x Hynix HMT125R7BFR8C-H9 9x 1GB DDR3 1333Mhz 4x Hynix HMT112U6TFR8C-H9 5x Samsung M391B2873FH0-CH9 Thank for reading and helping me.
