  1. Awesome thank you! Thats what I thought but i have never been sure
  2. Anyone know anywhere that will sell a set of 10 5V 0.7A Micro B power supplies with a cord attached? Something like this: Amazon link for 2 Pack 5V 2A Power Supply I dont want unreliable ones but the cheaper the better. Ive looked around and cant find much from a more reputable seller (Id prefer to stick somewhere like Amazon or Baltic networks) Thanks Edit: On a semi-related topic, do power supplies that output more amps matter? Does that mean that the device plugged in can draw up to the amp limit, or will the charger always be putting out the extra
  3. @charlie_root @leadeater @SteveiJobs @Jarsky @Domrockt @BloodKnight7 Sorry for the delayed reply. It ended up being a CPU power saving setting. I don't remember which, but that fixed it
  4. Got 2 VMs that are running really slow. One is Server 2016 one is 2019. Both are running incredibly slow. Im noticing that in task manager of one of them its at 99% cpu utilization (8c @ 2.2 Ghz, 16Gb RAM) but inside the esxi console it says that vm is only using 400mhz of host cpu. Shouldnt they be equal? Any other clue what it is? Ive disabled a ton of serveces, rebooted the os and the hardware. Edit: The other VM has 4 cores available to it. 12C total. Didnt make a difference if I removed cores from one Thanks
  5. Well I should have 1 way consent laws but my window is right above the door do I might just film outside
  6. Anyone know what super cheap cameras work with synology surveillance? Got someone stealing laundry and things out of our storage unit in our apartment. I can get a synology for free from my work but not cameras. Don't have a ton of money and would prefer they be on Amazon
  7. Hey all, recently I've started receiving emails from a bunch of random companies. If you look at who the to field is, it is "RICK@aol.com" This is not my email and I have no clue why they would be going to me email (which is completely unrelated) Any clue how I can stop this?
  8. Update: I removed the cpu and there was a piece of lint or something under the socket. Got it removed and it seems happier
  9. Hey all. PC keeps freezing when I try and do anything. I installed CyberPunk 2077 and went to run it and as soon as I finished with my character I got a bluescreen. Tried again and it just froze. Now im trying to re-install windows and am not getting very far. The USB installed will just lock up at different percentages after each attempt. (It doesnt freeze in one spot though, sometimes it will freeze after rebooting to complete installation and its loading for the first time) I have tried resetting defaults, clear cmos, taken my drives out of RAID, and Im getting nothing. Any
  10. Alright I'll check it out. Any particular reason to get on GOG? Just cheaper or?
  11. Hey all, im looking at getting Cyberpunk 2077 but I'm not sure if I should get it on my PS4 or my PC (6600k w/ 1060 6Gb). Both are set up to be on my couch right now as I don't have a desk, so I would prefer to use a controller. Will the PC version work with a controller? What machine am I gonna have a better experience on? I've heard the quality is pretty bad on PS4 but I wanted to see. If it's not gonna be semi decent on either I'd rather just not get it. Thanks
  12. Update for anyone who Cares: it definitely ditches your RAID but setting it right back fixes everything
  13. F for that CPU. If you are careful you can either bend pins back or take them off and stick them in the socket and hope the CPU will make contact
  14. I dont really know but based on a video I saw it should be backwards compatible, but dont quote me
  15. So i am trying to update the BIOS on my Z170FTW and I had a couple questions. Their documentation says to reset the BIOS to defaults for the update. Im fine with this, my issue is I have RAID configured and resetting to defaults removes the array, and I cannot boot into windows to do the update. If im gonna loose my array then its fine as I have a RAID card I was planning to replace it with, but i figured id check. Will I get my array back if I reset to default, update from inside the BIOS off of USB, and then re-load my profile? Or does the profile re-load the old BIOS versio
