  1. Did I say I considered Rosewill a reputable brand? I said in a later post corsair, seasonic and superflower and to my knowledge both the corsair and superflower ones are on the A-tier of the tier list (though the seasonic one might be vaporware).
  2. I've transported computers by car with a NH-D15 and GPU attached and it was fine. I'd suggest removing the cooler/GPU/any spinning rust (especially important) and it'll be fine.
  3. I don't know about living things and electronics mixing. Is there a concern of bacteria or mold in an enclosed spaces? Or high humidity (which would be bad for exposed metal/electronics)? I don't deny it would be cool to have a hydroponics PC where you hook up the PSU to sun lamps, a built in filtration system and use the hydroponics in the PC cooling loop.
  4. In my experience (and I'm sure there'll be other who disagree with me), desktop processors always feel smoother not just in games but also just general computer use (moving mouse around, opening 500 tabs, have 5 chat apps open, things like that). I think this is because of the severe power limit on laptops compared to Desktop chips. Most desktop chips are pushing 200W these days, while a really powerful laptop charger is only 200W for a gaming laptop and usually goes around 60-90W. That laptop power is for the entire machine not just the CPU while the 200W number on desktops is jus
  5. Mostly corsair, seasonic, superflower, and some other ones.
  6. Honestly, any 1600W from a reputable brand will be reliable since these are the haloiest halo products. Good luck finding one in the mining craze though.
  7. How's nicehash's rates though compared to doing like nanopool or whatever. I might be enticed to start mining as justification for not selling my GPU (that I got for MSRP from a lucky quick click). Will i have wallet lock out problems if I move all the btc out every week?
  8. Oh that's alot higher. In the US, the TUF Plus is 200, and the pro is 220.
  9. You wont be able to cool it properly in a regular PC case btw, it has no fans and relies on the front to back case cooling in a 4U rack mounted case. You probably have to strap a fan (not a regular fan, but a loud fan) on the back of it somehow, with a custom air funnel (kinda like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/GPU-Cooler-with-High-speed-Fan-for-Nvidia-Tesla-K80-P100-V100-Passive-Cooling-/124329274594).
  10. Yeah I was wondering this throughout the video. Both my case and motherboard came with instructions on how to install everything. I wonder if it's because they pulled this stuff out of their warehouse instead of buying new (as witnessed by the pre-opened RAM clips), and whoever used that part for a build before she did didn't put the instructions back in the box.
  11. It's possible to get a card at MSRP (though not guaranteed). You probably have to do a few hours of research for anecdotal experience, and sign up for stock alerts from websites (though I'm personally not making any recommendations)
  12. Sort of... I'd still get an SSD at least for the boot drive but that cost is trivial. If you're virtualizing, your VM store needs to be on SSDs (and with a 16 core+ server you really should consider virtualizing to play around with different OSes and stuff). If you're just using a lower power (core count) SFF machine then make sure it supports 3.5in hard drives. I would say the only thing spinning rust are good for are: video (movies, TV, etc...) and backups/static files (photos, spreadsheets, word docs, low traffic websites, CAD stuff, etc...). I had trouble with long load times a
  13. Your price is way way wayyyyyyyyyyyyy higher than what you need to do with it. I'd set your budget at $400 for just a server and $700 if you include a complete networking overhaul. A good place to start is https://www.servethehome.com/introducing-project-tinyminimicro-home-lab-revolution/ Something else to keep in mind: You can buy a 16c/32t Sandy/Ivy bridge era Xeon server with 64+GB of RAM for like $300 on eBay (search for R720). I would personally get 1 generation above that (R730 with v3/v4 Xeons to just start with DDR4 memory since if you're going to upgrade later
  14. Yeah but you're at a distinct disadvantage if you have to spend time googling whereas others can just do it from memory. And even with unlimited retries, each retry is going to take time and others will get ahead (which is not necessarily a bad thing by design, since the most seasoned "gamer memelords" will have an advantage which could be what they want). It sounds like from previous comments, it's basically a timed race of "who can remember the most gaming memelord information". Nah 2v2 teams vs. Linus + Luke in Anno 1800.
