    Should include anything you need to know. Has a long revision history (see Editions chapter)

    I would recommend against this. After having the mail on our own server for many years (Exchange), the small cost savings does not hold up against the headaches we had when a server crashed and emails were corrupt. You will also need to setup alot of security systems and certificates to prevent your mail from just being tossed into the spam folder because gmail or outlook could not verify your mail for example.
     
    Viewing everyone's email is easy tho, as you can just setup mailboxes to have multiple owners/editors ect.

    David1521 got a reaction from Slayerking92 in Ram won't sit all the way down in motherboard   
    So I ordered a "AsRock Rack 1U4LW-X470 1U Rackmount Server Barebone AMD AM4 Ryzen & Ryzen 7nm PGA1331 X470 4 x 3.5" HDD 400W PSU" server from newegg, and Timetec DDR4 16G 2400mghz CL17 1.2V ECC ram from amazon and when trying to install it, it won't sit all the way down in the slot. Is this ram not compatible? If so what ram do I need to get for the server's motherboard?

    Push it until it clips.
    As long as you align the notch, it would be just fine.
    I suggest to push it at the same time at both ends.

    I find it hard to believe the 5900x will be back ordered till March. That either represents major demand, or major supply issues... or some variation of both

    David1521 reacted to Suika in What's the difference between Asus x570 Hero and Asus x570 Dark Hero?   
    For an extra $40 over the Hero (WiFi), you get an improved VRM design, a removed chipset fan, and an all black aesthetic. Honestly, I'm getting one over the Strix simply for the aesthetic and fanless chipset (the extra USB ports too but I was fine with the Strix tbh).
     
    As far as availability, I haven't seen anything solid. The only information I've seen was from an ASUS rep on reddit, stating availability towards the later part of the 1st week in November or some time during the 2nd week.

    Biggest feature of the Dark Hero that I know of is the passive heatsink on the chipset. No annoying little fans.

    Couldn't tell ya personally, I run a X470 board. Some people complain about it but a majority don't. Most boards allow you to control the fan curve for it.

    David1521 reacted to Grabhanem in I have an Intel i7-6800k and don't get a consistent 240 fps with my rtx 2080 ti, should I upgrade CPU or GPU?   
    All of the boards you listed are super overkill, and you won't be VRM limited unless you're running liquid nitrogen. If you have that kind of budget, honestly, get whichever looks the best in your setup.
     
    The one exception is the Crosshair VIII Formula, which has a liquid-cooled VRM, so if you're not running custom watercooling it doesn't really make sense.

    1. Just change the CPU, your GPU will deliver the performance you expect on those games.
     
    2. Defilitely change your RAM for faster RAM, I had 2666 RAM paired with my i7 10700K and this did hold me back in one game even at 5 GHZ until I changed my RAM.
     
    3. No doubt your CPU causes sttutering to your games, in my case going from an i5 8400 to a i7 10700k with the same GPU really eliminated the sttutering caused by the CPU bottleneck. This happened on pubg and other old game. So yes, I did notice a night and day difference.

    David1521 reacted to ShrimpBrime in Why don't Motherboards or Cases have POST Speakers in them anymore?   
    Sometimes the speaker is included in the case.
    Sometimes the speaker is soldered to the board like by B450M-A
     
    All boards (that I'm aware of) have pins for a MB speaker either on or near the FP header.
     
    Post codes are not always reflective of actual errors, while some post codes are error codes, Beep codes are 90% always an error code.
     
    Get one on ebay for like a buck or two.

    David1521 reacted to tishous in Overclock help, Is this score good? 3950x / 3090 / 64gb   
    The GPU score is pretty much what you'd expect, perhaps a couple hundred points below average but still fine. Look at the thermals and see if you're running a slight bit warm. Overclocking is quite simple. Open a stress test, like Unigine Heaven or anything else like your favourite game and get the 3090 to as close to 100% load as possible. Start by increasing the core clocks by something like 25MHz and wait a minute or so. If it doesn't crash then increase again. Repeat until you eventually do crash then reduce the clocks by 25MHz. This is a pretty simplified version so maybe watch a video on it. The same for the memory clock speed, but instead of increments of 25, do 100 or so. Memory is a bit more tricky as it is ECC which means there aren't any artifacts shown, unlike the 2000 series for example. You can tell if you are over the max overclock by seeing if the performance is worse. You just have to note down the FPS for each time you increase the clock speed and find the optimal OC. Edit: I forgot to mention; MSI Afterburner is the easiest overclocking tool, for me at least.
     
    For the CPU, that score is a bit low. Have you tested what your temperature is when you're stressing the CPU?

    They wouldn't put it on their own website if it wasn't. Just watch a youtube video on how to do it on an msi mobo (should be similar looking bios as yours) if you really want to make extra extra sure. You shouldn't need a youtube video though, it's pretty straight forward. Read an article about it if you feel like it.

    David1521 reacted to GoodBytes in w10 pro recommendations on privacy   
    For me, it is a mixed bag.
    It depends on what we are talking about. A lot of  it is telemetry data, and that doesn't concern me. At least not today.
    However, if you use the coming up feature "TImeline" well, you are syncing to MS servers past activity to go back to. While great, it includes images, documents, and such. I am not happy about that. You can disable it once the feature is out, and that is what I have done. (I am part of the Windows Insider Skip Ahead Program, so as we speak, I am past this next update that is coming up, and already on the versions of the update that will follow it)
     
    Another feature that kinda bugs me, but still use it, is Cortana. When you use the voice search, your voice recorded command is on Microsoft server.
    On your privacy control website of your MS account, you can view everything, and delete them, but it is there.
    I use Cortana for sending SMS messages while I drive (usually saying that I am driving, or an "ok"). So nothing of privacy concerns... in any case, SMS is not private. Depending on who you message and where you and the other person is, your SMS passes through many hands, and its not encrypted. So privacy is out the door in any case.
     
    Personally, so far, I trust Microsoft with my data and personal information than Google, and the rest. In addition, as added security of sorts, my Microsoft linked account is a specially made one for my PCs. And while it is an e-mail address, I don't share it with anyone.. not even family member. I have my own e-mail for this. And of course, my login is backed up with a strong password, and use a PIN to login my PC.

    A 9900XE will NOT be good for gaming or streaming, nor will it be a good investment for anything but extreme workloads. I see no reason to upgrade your 6800K really. Just OC it, you should have no problem getting to 4.5GHz, or at least close.

    David1521 got a reaction from dgsddfgdfhgs in Trying to overclock 6800k   
    I currently have a gtx 1080 and an i7 6800k with a 1440p 144hz monitor, I recently bought the rtx 2080 ti zotac amp (managed to snag it at MSRP while it was available to pre order on amazon before stock arrived for a couple hours).
     
    I was wondering if my current cpu the i7 6800k will bottleneck the rtx 2080 ti and if I upgrade to one of the other cpus if I'll see more than a 10 frame difference in games while streaming. If not I think I'll just wait a couple more generations.
     
    Thoughts?
     
    UPDATE:
     
    It won't let me overclock my cpu past 3.8ghz on one core, apparently it only overclocks when using the bus and not the multiplier, I tried from 1.2 volts to 1.35 volts and everytime both hwmonitor and cpu z say it's running at 3.6 on 5 cores a 3.8 on one core, even though I set my multiplier to 39 on all cores and I also tried 40 on all cores. I have a Asus rampage v edition 10 mobo.... and a h115i corsair liquid cooler.... this shouldn't happen.
