  1. All you did was remove one of the SSD's. For all you know OP could have a specific reason for wanting 2 separate ones. Ex: Windows SSD, Games SSD, storage HDD.
  2. Looks pretty good to me. If you have any extra money left over after finding a card and a monitor, Id suggest looking for a memory kit with 4 dims to total 64Gb or just going with a 4 dimm 32Gb kit so you can get the full performance out of your system.
  3. Personally, I have an i7-6700K running doing almost exactly the same as what your planning on already. I upgraded my personal computer from that to a Ryzen 2600 so then it became my server system, all I did was swap out motherboard in an old HP tower I had, plugged all the power and stuff in, and its sat running like that for close to 3 years now. I didn't even have a proper heatsink for it so I literally just zip-tied a stock Intel cooler on super tight like Linus has famously done in the past for things.
  4. I don't know if this is actually a likely scenario, but because both the CPU pads and socket pins are plated with gold, the two pieces could have cold-welded together. Seems unlikely considering multiple pins in the same row did this but is somewhat possible since gold is used specifically because it doesn't oxidize, which is usually what prevents cold welding of metals. Unfortunately, most motherboard manufacturers don't allow RMAs for boards with broken pins, but I'd recommend giving them a call and talking to a person about it.
  5. I just witnessed the weirdest thing I've ever seen with computer monitors. My monitor (Dell U2515H) is currently completely black, but the backlight is still on. The LCD will not display any image including the built in menus. (The monitor makes a beep sound when I press the buttons so I know its registering the clicks). I watched it fade out in front of me in such a strange way. Its hard to explain but each pixel seemed to turn off one by one, starting from the outer edges and working its way inward to the center of the screen. As it was happening I could see patterns
  6. I am running a minecraft server on a separate computer in my home and have it setup with No-IP for the dynamic DNS service. I have always been able to connect to the server from my main computer using the domain name I have assigned to it from my local network, but recently I have not been able to and can only connect using the local IP. The issue is not isolated to these two computers either. I can setup a server on a completely separate computer and try to connect the same way from another unique computer and it still doesn't work, which leads me to believe it's an issue with my router setti
  7. I think its thermal throttling. Make sure you didn't leave the plastic slip on the surface of the CPU cooler before you installed it and that you have enough thermal paste. A small pea sized glob is enough.
  8. A lot of people here talking about the real worth of this card forgetting the fact were currently in the middle of a silicon shortage and graphics cards of all types are going for crazy prices. I'm not saying you should or shouldn't do this, because it's up to your own moral judgement, but if you really want to sell this card, we are currently in the best possible time period for you to get max dollar for it. Everyone else is correct that its not really worth selling in normal circumstances. But were not experiencing normal circumstances rn.
  9. What mouse do you have? I have a logitech G602 and sometimes if the receiver doesnt have a clear line of sight to the mouse the signal gets blocked due to the higher frequency they use.
  10. Sounds like it could be a corrupt graphics driver. Try reinstalling it. Can you tell if the system is still "running" but graphics just get frozen?
  11. Go check out the Backblaze hard drive report. They release averages of all the hard drive failures they have per brand and capacity.
  12. Thanks, i figured it out. Idk why I didnt realize i was inside the home folder within the root directory. Just a brain fart moment
  13. Im new to running Linux without a GUI and after installing an instance of Ubuntu Server, I cant seem to see all of the files in the file structure. All I can see is the user file. Sorry if this is extremely stupid, im just learning. (I created the files under user)
  14. If he can sell his 1060 it might not be terrible though. I just sold a 960 the other day for $130 so Im sure he can easily get $180 for a 1060. That being said, I think $180 is still quite overpriced for that card. Maybe like 130-150 MAX
