  1. This happens seemingly at random. Earlier in 2020 it crashed 6 times in one month, then went several months without any issues. The last two blue screens happened in October and November about a month apart and then it went quiet. I think one of the game servers is causing it but I'm not too sure. I think in November we switched it to a stand alone and it might have solved the problem. Unfortunately this game server is not one that I can just throw into virtualbox like I'm doing now as it needs an actual GPU to run and I haven't found a way to pass through in virtualbox. I'll ke
  2. I've got a home server that acts as a storage server, between 5 and 7 game servers, PiHole (VM), Plex server, phone backup and folding server. It works pretty well for most of what it does but a couple of things are starting to creep in as problems. 1. Since the OS is windows and everything else runs inside that if windows crashes (has been known to happen even with the ECC) everything goes down including PiHole which can bring down my internet if the server does not recover. I have an old laptop I am trying to figure out how to act as a backup but that is a different project.
  3. I still use a 1650 xeon which is Sandy Bridge with a 5700xt, and while I can tell that the CPU is holding the GPU back a little in some games it hasn't been enough for me to say I need a new system. If you are wanting a 1440p 60 experience then I don't think your CPU will hold it back too much (even more so if it's overclocked but you didn't say). I only got a 75 hz monitor for me because I knew I wouldn't be pushing high frame rates with my CPU, and I'm more of a maximum quality gamer. I don't see the point in buying a 144hz monitor if I need to turn down settings. You
  4. So I looked it up and apparently I'm tripping. It was never available for Navi, supposedly the driver switches automatically.
  5. I have a 5700xt and could have swore I saw it just a month ago.
  6. So am I crazy or did AMD remove the toggle for compute performance from the control panel? I know it was there at one point and though "oh, that'll be great for folding" but can't find it anymore. It's not where they are saying it's supposed to be, dose anyone know where it is now or did it get axed?
  7. Using a mix of target and my normal curve did work, though it wasn't quite what I was thinking, it's good enough. Until it was brought it up I hadn't looked into the target function all that much. Once I started messing with it I figured out how it works.
  8. The NF-A12x25 would be my choice, the NF-F12 and NF-P12 are also considerations though might not be as good.
  9. Seeing how much these were hyped up, I bought some for my system to see how they are and, I'm not super impressed. I've tested 3 P14s and one P12 and they work for what I was trying to do, but I feel like these are being hyped up a little too much. They are very quiet (most of the time, see below) and they move a good amount of air, but their build quality is lacking. The blades are very porous which is probably why it is so cheap and light. I know it's porous because one of the blades came in contact with the case while testing and ripped itself off. One of the other
  10. Try a Pure Rock or Pure Rock slim. You can also try a 212 black. I don't know what the prices are like in Greece. You won't get as much out of these coolers as you would probably like though.
  11. This annoys me... Not like this would have been a champ, but I figured I could use it for some extra points.
  12. The Q300l is not well ventilated at the bottom of the case for the GPU. If you have a GPU I would recommend turning your power supply upside down or removing some of the remaining PCIe brackets so air can get in/out around the GPU. This case will benefit most from having a negative pressure setup so I would take the stock case fan and run it at full speed (provided it's not too loud for you) by plugging it into your fan up without any control. This fan most likely can't be controlled in this current setup is unless you are willing to do some electrical engineering work.
  13. Does your fan hub have a cable to connect it to the motherboard for control? What case do you have?
  14. Be Quiet Dark Rock 4. Should keep you cool and still support an overclock in the future.
  15. Try a Corsair ML120? They have RGB and work with PWM for a CPU cooler, they can get very loud though when at full speed.
