    LIGISTX reacted to SupaKomputa in How to update bios SATA ?   
    No, most certainly you don't, that driver is for RAID.
     
    That's not the sata driver.

    Yep, aware of this, but thanks!

    LIGISTX got a reaction from Rollinwild in Changing fan airflow   
    If you make them all exhaust… you won’t have any air going in and all the fans will be working against each other. Definitely do not do that.
     
    Your current setup is good. Leave it how it’s is.
     
    Yea, airflow matters. Heat will always come out of the case, it can’t magically disappear. More airflow will make the temp of the air lower that comes out as your flowing more air through the case, less of it will warm up. But hot air will always come out….
     
    Leave it how it is, that is optimal. With that many fans you likely can turn the rpm down without much cooling impact, and less rpm means less noise which is the ultimate goal anyways, at least for me.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from maartendc in Upgrading my current pc for triple A games   
    A 7700k shouldn’t be that hard to keep cool. Something like a hyper 212 evo would suffice if it’s not overclocked. I run a 6700k @4.6ghz on a hyper 212 with no issues at all.
     
    Id wait to change anything else. The 3080 will be a huge boost, and in a year or so a CPU upgrade would be a good idea.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from Super User in Should I undervolt my 5800x?   
    Short answer is no.
     
    Long answer is undervolting is “the same” as overclocking in terms of validating stability and what not. Will likely be many hours of work and validation of stability for what will ultimately be a meaningless temperature reduction and performance bump.
     
    That said, I OC all my parts, full well knowing these days it’s mostly meaningless. My GPU OC makes a noticeable difference, my CPU OC is “just because I can” and because I enjoy the process.

    1: take canned air. 
    2: flip can upside down
    3: spray air on to heatsink/fan area. 
    4: ????
    5: PROFIT!!!

    yep, I put as much emphasis to parts rather than the looks, but i got 4 rgb fans for 17 bucks with some of my remaining money.

    LIGISTX reacted to fuzz0r in how can you remotely connect to a desktop from a different internet?   
    I really would have to advise against that. It is simply not secure enough.
    I'm pretty sure AnyDesk/TeamViewer is what you are looking for.
    As far as I know you can run AnyDesk free for personal use, don't honestly know about TeamViewers status on that.

    LIGISTX reacted to The_russian in how can you remotely connect to a desktop from a different internet?   
    Not sure about anydesk but TeamViewer is free for personal use and I’ve been using it for many years, it’s only paid if you use it commercially. As mentioned Chrome Remote Desktop is another popular option though I’ve never used it.
    As others have said be careful with opening up ports, unless you know what you are doing it is not advised, especially for something like this where there are many other options.

    LIGISTX reacted to Lurick in how can you remotely connect to a desktop from a different internet?   
    I would NEVER open RD to the internet, I don't care what ports it's listening on. Scanning ports is stupid simple and done all the time, it's maybe 2 extra seconds to find a RD session behind a non-default port.

    LIGISTX reacted to Chris Pratt in CPU temps higher then they should on custom loop   
    It looks like you still have a 120mm rad? Custom loop isn't going to do anything much more than an AIO would at the same rad size. It's more about looks than anything else. The issue is the rad size. You need 280mm or larger before you can outperform a good air cooler. 120mm isn't even good enough to cool something like a 5600X properly.

    LIGISTX reacted to Slottr in WHY: CS:GO keep running i9-9900K under 100% load? HELP   
    You're making an issue out of nothing
     
    CSGO is very CPU intensive. You should be happy that its being resourceful

    LIGISTX reacted to Roswell in WHY: CS:GO keep running i9-9900K under 100% load? HELP   
    CS:GO is a heavily threaded CPU bound game and you're probably running it with an uncapped frame rate. Your GPU is not the limiting factor and in turn, your CPU is going to get maxed out during gameplay.
     
    As said above, this isn't an issue. If you really want to limit your CPU usage for whatever reason, you need to cap your frame rate.

    LIGISTX reacted to dizmo in My mom needs a new cell phone.   
    A budget would be helpful.
    The phones you've linked probably aren't going to be what you want, if you want something even remotely close to a good camera.
    I'd probably get an older iPhone SE. You're not really going to find decent small screened Android phones.

    LIGISTX reacted to Alex Atkin UK in How much storage is overkill these days anyway?   
    There is no "bad idea", how much storage you need is entirely down to your own habits and needs.
     
    You already made the point, if you're sick of constantly redownloading games then get more storage.

    LIGISTX reacted to Middcore in MSI RTX 2080 Duke Voltage?   
    I'm not sure what the point of this post is. There is no question anywhere in it. 
     
    The 980 ti was and probably will remain the last flagship card that had significant overclocking headroom.
     
    The idea of downgrading to a 1080 ti or 980 ti from a 2080 just to be able to overclock more and still end up with worse performance is bizarre. 
  24. Agree
    LIGISTX reacted to AbydosOne in TrueNAS can't create new storage pool.   
    As @RONOTHAN##alluded to, you have a few things wrong here.
     
    First off, you need to install TrueNAS to a dedicated drive (usually a flash drive or small SSD). TrueNAS doesn't allow you to use the boot pool as storage (for somewhat logical reasons).
     
    Second, you need to destroy the RAID card array and let ZFS allocate the drives itself (or else you basically lose all of the positives of ZFS). Better yet, remove the RAID card and connect to motherboard ports (ZFS don't care how you connect).

    What program is the hypervisor? Your setup one in there I believe. At least on windows you do, think Mac is the same.
