  1. Little update, I had installed a GTX 1650 however with vSphere even though you can pass the PCI device through to the VM because its consumer grade hardware its not detected by the OS. Picked me up a Quadro P2000 and tested it out, hardware decode on my plex server now works exactly like it should. You can see in the pink highlighter on the 2nd picture that if Plex cannot "Direct Stream" the content it will switch to transcode and if it can use hardware over CPU it will work like below.
  2. Mostly lab environments, VM's for server or network testing. Learning how to configure various things. One of them has GNS on it, the others are running vSphere. Included some updated pictures, those others in my last post were from a long time ago.
  3. I have never heard of this brand but gollie, its 1080p, has some unknown AMD processor, 16GB of RAM, some sort of metal chassis, windows Hello with IR 720p webcam. I mean for $209 it's almost worth just buying it see how decent it is. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Vega-HDMI-Front-RAM-FHD-4GB-display-AMD-128GB-Tuned-Camera-Radeon-14-Ryzen-720P-THX-Graphics-IR-SSD-Silver-Laptop-3-MOTILE-Spatial-Performance-Audio-/715635402?irgwc=1&sourceid=imp_0wx0XeSFuxyJRZcwUx0Mo3cQUknTl2QN0xDt0U0&veh=aff&wmlspartner=imp_10915&clickid=0wx0XeSFuxyJRZcwUx0Mo3cQUknTl2QN0xDt0U0
  4. I ended up just using both drives individually. I believe you could still put them in a RAID using Intel Rapid Storage. Basically its software RAID enabled by the BIOS. So you would have to enable it in BIOS and then I don't know if you would need a separate boot drive or if you could install Windows on one of the SSDs and then enable RAID. This is the direction I would look however if you're trying to RAID on this motherboard. I don't believe it supports hardware RAID. Thanks
  5. Enabled G-Sync on windowed mode and it still looks fine. Changed all my settings in the control panel back to I originally had them set and no issues. I guess there was something wrong with my driver? Maybe it was the restart after the driver install. WHO KNOWS.....
  6. Could it be using G-Sync in windowed mode? I just installed a graphics driver update and did a clean install to wipe all the custom settings I had in case something in there was messing with it and it fixed it.... I will try to replicate after work by turning windowed G-Sync back on.
  7. So after taking my computer apart and putting it back together I've noticed that my mouse lags when I open certain windows like Spotify and Messenger (Which both came from app store). Once I minimize those windows I have no issues over chrome and other actual windows applications. Any ideas? It is a wireless mouse but signal wouldn't make sense its only over the same windows repeatedly.
  8. So I recently removed the stock cooler on my GPU and reapplied new thermal paste to everything. I am wanting to check the VRAM temps somehow and make sure I got good paste application on those. Is this possible? I don't see anything in GPU-Z. Thanks

  11. UPDATE: Finally getting an update up, it's been awhile. This has been kind of a discontinuous build, I got the desktop built and didn't have a monitor for 3 months. I was using my TV as my monitor, holding out for a ultrawide monitor and seriously hindering my use of the desktop. I finally got me a 34" ultrawide and then took it to work to use as a folding rig during folding month. Now that folding is over I took the time to take the computer apart, clean out all the dust, upgrade the CPU fan and swap in my sleeved cables. I also took the opportunity to replace all the
  12. This isn't even close to how I would like it to look but its better and a continued work in progress. Post some pictures of your horror stories below, no random pictures off Google post stuff you've seen first hand or worked on. Share your tips on cleaning up that rats nest of cables. Post any cable porn you might have done or came across as well.
  13. If I have a server with 4 network adapters and I want to team those interfaces would it be better to create two separate teams of (2) NIC's each? One team (2 NICs) for the host and one team (2 NICs) for the virtual machines or create a large single team of (4 NICs) and "share" the vNIC? The reason I am debating this is because if you have your virtual machines sending data and you're also doing replication of your VMs (Host Traffic) in theory it seems like it would be better to split this traffic however I may be wrong in my thinking. I'm hoping someone else can give me some insigh
  14. Everyone is saying Pixel 4 battery life sucks. I just went from 8am to 10pm and ended with 60%. People are just on the hate train because it wasn't some baller phone.


    The Samsung S series has hardly changed from S8 to S10 so stop yelling at Google for the same thing.

      My $270 phone has a 4000 mAh battery, while the pixel 4, an $800- $900 phone, has a 2800 mAh battery... the pixel 4 xl has a 3700 mAh battery.. these are flagship devices..
