  1. Thanks for the suggestion but no log. Diskpart errors out once I try to do a clean. I might just sell it on eBay cheap as is if anyone has a better understanding of fixing it than I do. David
  2. Hi, I have a 1TB Sandisk Extreme Portable SSD. I attempted to do a secure wipe with GParted but it seemed to failed. No mater what I try I can't access the drive anymore to try to create a new partition. Is there anyway to recover the drive? I can't find the receipt to send it back for a replacement. Any advice with greatly appreciated. Thanks! David
  3. Thanks for all the input. It really helps a lot. I think I'm going to test out the be quiet! Silent Wings 3 140mm fan. Based off the Amazon reviews they have a good mix of air flow and static pressure. David
  4. Hi, I would like to buy a pair 140mm fans for the top of my Factual Design Node 804. The top has a mesh filter so I'm sure if it would better to get an airflow or static fan? Attached a picture of the top plate of the case and the mesh filter. Thanks for any advice. David
  5. Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I think I'll go with the 3600Mhz since it'll be likely compatible with Ryzen. David
  6. Hi, I'm looking at getting a 64GB (2x16GB) Ram kit for my R5 3600X. I found two at Microcenter that that looks interesting and is in my price range: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 16-18-18-38 Dual Channel Desktop $149.99 G.Skill Trident Z Neo Series RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL 16-19-19-39 CL16 Dual Channel Memory Kit $178.99 If anyone could good give advice at which one would be better for the R5 3600X? I also have a Gigabyte RX 5700 I don't plan to overclock the CPU much. Thanks. David
  7. Hi, I just purchased an AMD R5 3600X. The stock fan is just to loud for me. I really like the NZXT AIOs in my previous builds. I'm looking at the 240MM X52 or the 280MM X63. I would prefer to use the X52 because it'll be easier to fit in my case, but I could get the X63 to work. Will there a significant difference in thermals and noise for a 3600X between the two models? I don't plan to overclock the CPU much. Thanks for any advice. David
  8. Hi, I'm looking at buying a 1TB Samsung PM961 ($139) or a WD Blue SN550 ($119) as a secondary drive. The PM961 is the OEM 960 Evo. I read difference performance charts and a few say is better than the other and vice versa. If someone has a recommendation on which one to buy I will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! David
  9. Hi, I have a Asrock X570 Pro4 motherboard. Is there a way to figure out who makes the SATA controller? I'm curious if it's made by Marvell or AMD. Thanks! David
  10. Hi, I have an Intel I9-9900K that I would like to use with a matx motherboard. I'm looking between the Gigabyte Z390M and the MSI MPG Z390M Gaming Edge AC. The other difference I see between the two boards is that MSI has a few extra features that aren't really important to me. Does one of the motherboards have a a VRM setup, heat shields or other features that would be better for the I9-9900K? I would like to overclock the CPU a bit but nothing crazy. Thanks for any advice! David
  11. Ok, thats good to know. If I run a 3800X will it be possible to run all four dimms at that speed or is that a limit of the motherboard? Also, will manually adjusting any of the other memory settings help? Thanks again.
  12. Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I need a matx motherboard. If I use a 3000 series CPU will I have better luck? Thanks.
  13. Thanks for the reply. I removed 2 of the dimms and was able to run the other 2 at 3200Mhz when I increased the voltage to 1.4. Is there any long term damage running at a higher voltage?
  14. Hi, I have a AMD 2700X installed on a Asrock X570M motherboard. I am trying to install 4x16 GB G.Skill Ripjaws 32GB DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3600C16D-32GVKC. I assume I can't run at 3600Mhz with a 2700X but I can't run the memory higher than 2133Mhz at 1.2V. If I enable XMP or manually adjust to clock speed to st the speed to 2400Mhz or higher it will not boot. Is there any manual setting I need to chance or is this memory just incompatible? Also, if I swap the 2800X for a newer 3600X or 3800X will I have the same issue? Any advice will greatly be appreciated. Thanks! David
  15. Hi, I'm building a new Unraid Server. I can't decide between the AMD 2700X or 3600X. I plan to run about 2 or 3 VMs and 2 or 3 Docker containers for Next Cloud and Plex. My storage will be two 500GB SSD for Cache and four 8TB Red Drives. I have a GTX 1660 TI that I'm going to use for Plex. Do you what the better CPU for this setup? Thanks! David
  16. Hi, just a quick question. Will running a GTX 1660 Ti in a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot but running at x4 speed impact the video cards performance? Thanks! David
  17. Hi, is it possible to gracefully shutdown a VM such as an Unraid VM and power down ESXi using the power button a computer case? Thanks!
  18. Thanks for the reply. I plan on using 4 10GB WD Red Hard drives along with 2 500GB SSD for cache with Unraid. The price difference is between the two controllers only about $15. I was more concern about the compatibly of running a PCI 3.0 x8 lane card in a PICE 3.0 16 slot with only x4 lanes. David
  19. Hi, I have a Asrock X570M Pro4 motherboard and a 2700X CPU with a open PCIE x16 running at PCIe 3.0 x4 speed. I'm not sure what if I should get the LSI 9205-8i or the LSI 9207-8i controller. The LSI 9205-8i runs at PCIe 2.0 x8 and the LSI 9207-8i x8. Both have the x8 slot. I would like to get the 9207-8i to be future proof but I'm not sure if I would have a better chance of the 9205-8i working. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, in the future when I upgrade to a 3000 AM4 CPU the PCIe slot will be running at PCIe 4.0 x4. Does that mean it can run the LSI 9207-8i controller at PCIe 3.0 x8? I'm not sure if that how that works. Thanks! David
