  1. First check the Users tab of Task manager, to make sure there's no remote access causing issues. (Small chance but easy to check) You should only see your user account or the accounts that you intentionally have logged in. Instead of opening up task manager, check resource monitor's CPU tab. (open from windows menu) See if that gives you a more accurate representation of what's going on.
  2. Not gonna lie, I don't trust the Tool-less ones. If I find them in place at an office or similar, I either replace them with double-female keystones or traditional punchdown ones. *EDIT* I just saw that this was the problem Glad we could help and welcome to the forum!!
  3. Hey! So you're correct in your assumption that it shouldn't be a crossover connection. You want straight through of T568-B to B, which you have done correctly. The thing I would be asking first would be about the keystone jack in the office. Usually punchdown tools cut the cable ends off so the cap fits over them without bare wire sticking out, but it looks like you've got a lot left over. So I'd make sure the tool pushed the wires down far enough that the keystone slots cut through the plastic around the actual copper. What device are you using to check connectivity si
  4. Curry's is a real site, and apparently they have 3080s in store.

    40-50 C idle temps are actually pretty good! As long as load temps don't go over 80C I'd say you're good to go! Also, welcome to the forums!
  6. It looks like you're in airplane mode..? I'd click the little plane to see if that helps.
  7. If you actually want 4k@144hz, the best card you can afford. This PCMag article ought to give you an idea: https://www.pcmag.com/news/ultimate-pc-gaming-what-does-it-take-to-play-at-4k-and-144hz
  8. Again, servers are meant to have the OS installed via IPMI. for HP, it's called HP iLO. Your BIOS settings should have options to set a management port and enable iLO (integrated lights out), then you can log into the IP of that device via a program or (usually) a webpage. From there you can manage the server much easier.
  9. Then use IPMI. You can manage the server via a webpage with it's local IP address, if your motherboard has IPMI
  10. Sooo.... What's the plan for transferring data to it then? Sneakernet?
  11. So I would try an iso and a image writing tool like Balena etcher or Rufus and writing the disk in GPT mode. (use DD mode, not image mode. It'll prompt you for this when you start the clone.) Also, why do you want a server - something designed to SERVE data to other computers - offline, not connected to anything?
  12. I meant what program, windows MCT or an iso and a 3rd party tool? Also doesn't the proliant have an ILO or similar IPMI interface that you can install the host OS from?
  13. What did you use to make the installer? What server is it? Does the motherboard support UEFI booting?
  14. Here's what's gonna happen: The people who are actually concerned about getting caught doing this will stop. These are your twitch/YT restream content people with very little investment in it. The smart ones who hide streams "online" will get better. People who use homebuilt streaming services (the hacked firestick streamers and similar) will navigate this very carefully. The dumb ones will get caught. People who name their websites things like wwTV247.com (Pretty sure this used to exist), or just don't care/live in a country with more lenient laws. Personally, I'l
