  1. you can put a pci-x card into a normal pci slot but it brings down the potential speed from 4.3GB/s down to 133MB/s probably lowers the quality
  2. So I was cleaning a server the other day: And I noticed the PCI-X slots on the board, i always thought this was interesting because back before PCI-E existed (this board was new enough to have both, but PCI-X came first) the server space had PCI-X if u didnt want the slow 133mb/s regular pci slots So PCI-X 2.0 has a WHOPPING 4.3GB/s and that was back in 1998!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-X#:~:text=PCI%2DX%202.0%20offers%20(at,disadvantages%20compared%20to%20PCI%20Express. for comparison pci-e 1.1 had a max of 8GB/s in 2003 S
  3. the whole point of the software is the fact that it shows the performance across the disk platter, there isnt really anything else out there like this
  4. So i found out about this program called HDtune, and it scans across the surface of a disk and tells you the performance as the head goes from the inside to the outside of the disk i thought i should try that on a raid that i have 4 600GB 15K RPM SAS drives Raid 1+0 so the low access time is pretty explainable, but whats with the wonky graph? does the Raid controller make some disks go outside - in and inside -out for performance or something???
  5. welp, i dont use reddit or anything else really so this is my last place to turn to for help. I lost my wallet 2 days ago and i still cant find it. Im getting extremely pissed and angry because i know for a fact that i came out of the car and i felt my wallet in pocket as i took off my shoes inside. But i cant remember ANYTHING after that at all, even after 2 days. I've checked my entire room and all my cloths, and all around the front door and i still cant find it. Im starting to think maybe it literally moved on its own plz help.
  6. yeah didnt like 4k, none of the players did....i guess its really just a chipset limitation.
  7. tried 1080p at 80mbit and it worked fine! 80 might be too high for 1080p but it works
  8. Banned for mentioning the Spartans which reminds people of the movie 300 and made everyone feel really out of shape.
  9. the problem is new ultra-books with the exception of Thinkpads dont have docking stations...note that ideapads Dont have docking stations
  10. a slightly older dell precision workstation laptop u can find on ebay with the docking station is pretty cheap and is very powerfull (but not too big or too hot or any of the problems gaming computers have)
  11. can you tell if it is failing and it wants to keep retrying? also just diable windows update, u dont have to update..just do it once every 2 months or somthiing
  12. u dont have to use it, doesnt take up even a gigabyte of space, also the older programs im talking about obviously are THAT old, what i mean by old is enterprise applications and hardware that could have been made even fairly recently. Even my newish Brother mfc-7360n printer that has a web interface works best with IE and doesnt like chrome or any of the other stuff
  13. well edge the edge compatibility mode only works because the old IE is there and it uses runtimes and components of IE...so if you remove IE, edge compatability doesnt work either
