  1. Don't compare apples to oranges. Do you have abenchmark run, from back in the day, like unigine heaven and an associated score? Compare those, not different games and settings. A lot can go wrong even when testing the same hardware twice consecutively and switching operating system can also make a noticable difference -usually for the better. If you don't have a proper benchmark baseline I think it will be hard to answer. Feelings are feelings after all and not very accurate. New games coming out will undoubtedly be more taxing. Have you checked for other people bench
  2. I 'dd'-ed everything from one drive to anonher then got not display out after a subsequent reboot which should have had nothing to do with the cloning - which it turned out it hadn't. It shouldn't matter how many bootable windows partitions I attach to my motherboard, right? It would just boot from the one first in line in the BIOS boot order.
  3. CMOS reset fixed it. Thanks for your help.
  4. Update: Wden pressing the power button my monitor wakes up from sleep, then notifies me of 'no signal's and consequently gone back to sleep. Using either just HDMI or display port. Same behavior on both. I have tried powering down the system via long press of the power button and turning of the PSU forcefully.
  5. Using M.2 no cables. The issue in I don't even see the motherboard splash screen. Straight up no signal. SSD1 used to be in port2 I cloned to SSD2 in port1 I tried booting with both connected in those same ports And SSD1 removed. Both didn't yield a display outpit after that one time.
  6. If you don't need grphcis you can get a 12 core 5900X for also roughly 500 bucks (see 11900k) and if you need an iGPU the 5700G has 8 cores but is a lot cheaper than the 11900k. I saw the been seems to have pretty good boost frequencies too so single core might not be to different from the 11900k. If uptime is a concern you should go Xeon or ryzen. Both support ECC. I personally would go for a ryzen system here.
  7. Have you looked at AMDs offerings in the form of ryzen/thread ripper. From current review consensus, bang for the buck seems better or don't they work with Proxmox?
  8. What is your budget/which models are you currently looking at?
  9. i9 don't support ECC but likely have a higher single core performance. That's Ted difference I am aware of. I cannot consult on web or rust servers
  10. Turn down Graphics and more importantly resolution
  11. It may not work under load. There is at least to a layman like me an unthinkable number of ways a PSU can fail. Just because it reads some fine voltages when you jump in and read it with a multimeter (don't run it without any load please a attach as HDD or something) doesn't mean it can power a PC. Although that increases your chances my a lot. Please give us all the info. It seems you were trying to do something with it that didn't work. That's why you got out the multi meter. What was it?
  12. Check ALL cable connections again. If possible check the board with the old PSU again. If that no longer works the board may be dead. If it still works there is an issue with your PSU (which is weird because you verified it with another system. My bet is on cables. What is start up behavior exactly? What happens vs what do you expect to happen when you press the power button? Edit: above I mean debug LEDs, boobs, fans turning, lights, etc
  13. In my last thread I asked about cloning a drive. It seem to have worked perfectly. The issue: after that I tried to reboot back into windows but I am only getting a black screen after turning the machine on. I tried resetting a bunch of times and once got it to work/into BIOS and set my OC profile because it had gone into save boot. Shouldn't have done that because I had to reset again instead of continuing to boot. So now I have forced a shutdown with Ted power button more than 10 time and still don't have any display out. The system used to work before that. I tried
  14. There is so many blatant errors in there, i don’t know where to start. 1. Manufacturers measure performance differently. I would highly recommend completly ignoring all performance stats on PCPartpicker. They just reprint the garbage on the box. 2. They also measure noise differently. above applies 3. The min an max are the values you will use least in the lifetime of a fan but neither noise nor CFM or pressure (which you have completely ignored) scale linearly on any fan. 4. Also did you make calculations by simply diving the difference on the logarithmic dB scale is h
