  1. Hello, I am attempting to host several servers from a machine that is connected to a network controlled by my Linksys router. The setup I have used in the past involves plugging a machine directly into my Zyxel modem via Ethernet, but would like to be able to host on a different machine that is connected to the Linksys router instead. From what I've been able to gather, I need to enable DMZ to eliminate the doulbe-NAT that is being constructed by default, but am unsure as to which device I should enable DMZ on. Will forwarding the desired port on the modem and then enab
  2. Would you benefit at all from the extra cores on the 8700K? If not, then you could probably just go with the 8600K and be fine.
  3. Do you have another USB drive available that you could use? I've had some systems that for some reason or another don't like certain drives. I'd put the Windows 10 ISO on another USB drive if you have one and give it a try.
  4. Buy a GTX 1050 Ti would be my recommendation. It's not too expensive and would be suitable for the rest of that hardware. *As long as you have a PSU that can support it.
  5. I would change this setup to a Ryzen 5 2600X or Ryzen 7 2700(X) (x-variant is a viable choice as well if you're specifically looking for a chip that will overclock a bit better than the others). That way you could save a little more money to put towards your GPU and potentially have more cores and thus greater multi-core performance if that's something you'd benefit from. Your motherboard would change to a B450 motherboard then too, potentially saving you a few more bucks. For about $8 more you can get a Samsung 970 Evo M.2 NVMe SSD that's considerably faster, so I'd recommend t
  6. I'd recommend a 120GB or 240GB SSD and then more HDD space, depending on how many games you have and how many you'd want to put on an SSD.
  7. Well the motherboard you've selected looks perfectly adequate. Good luck with your build!
  8. That 7% on average quad-core performance worth $20-30 for you? Plus the money saved on a motherboard? I personally wouldn't care for it, but that's totally your choice. What features are you looking for? M.2 slots, certain number of PCIE slots, form-factor, etc.
  9. In what games? Whilst playing the aforementioned games? If you want to stream and record using your CPU to encode, then your best bet is to upgrade to a Ryzen 5 1600/2600 or Ryzen 7 1700/2700. If you're comfortable doing a BIOS update, then go with the second generation Ryzen processors.
  10. If you wanna save a few bucks and not really lose any performance, I'd recommend an i7-8700K over the i7-9700K that you currently have in your build since they're basically the same chip, and may also lower the price of your motherboard. Also worth a mention that there are some good deals to be had on used GTX 1080 Ti's that you may want to consider. Otherwise, the build looks super solid!
  11. Ah, okay. I thought you meant that was the usage with nothing else running. ReEeEeE McAfEe
  12. That seems a bit excessive. Usually about 30-35% is typical idle RAM usage.
  13. Both of you might be interested in this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-UlA4-tslROBDS9IqHalWVztqZo7uxlCeKPQ-8uoFOU/edit#gid=0 It compares a lot of different messaging services and outlines them very thoroughly. Signal and Telegram do have differences, but generally speaking, Signal is more secure.
  14. Yeah not really sure why everyone's picking on Huawei so much, it's a similar situation for any US based company, or, for that matter, any company in the Five Eyes Alliance. All are subject to the same kind of scrutiny and forced collaboration.
  15. lol the green 'X' on the product picture where it displays the ports gets me
  16. Issue was solved by changing outbound rule to allow insecure connections.
  17. Yeah, I tried disabling the Windows Defender Firewall but to no avail.
  18. Yes, I've tried even with the windows firewall completely disabled. What do you mean when you say disconnect the PC from the network?
  19. I am able to connect to the server using the host machine, and it is fully functional. Another person recommend another tool through which we determined that the port is filtered on my end, which means that it's being blocked by some type of firewall. Which firewall it is has yet to be determined.
  20. Update: Interestingly enough, someone else recommended a special tool to me and it was able to find my server. So if it's not showing up in-game on the server list, does that mean that the Steam servers (or however it works lol) aren't recognizing my server? I've got this issue posted up in a couple of places because it's been taking me so long to figure out (days), and one guy recommended that I leave it up for an hour or so. Would that possibly allow steam's servers to recognize my server?
  21. Yes, I've got the server up and running whenever I'm testing if the port is open. I'm checking both on another client on the internet through the game and using one of those port checker websites.
