    LIGISTX reacted to Electronics Wizardy in Which is the more reliable hard drive for safe storage?   
    Just get one hdd for both games and storage, I don't see a reason to get 2. ALso bigger hdds are faster.
     
    All of the drives between brands will be about the same, and there really aren't big changes between brands.
     
     
    Just be sure to backup the drives and you won't lose data. Don't try to get a super reliable drive, it doesn't exist. 
     
    Id just get a single 4tb barracuda, blue, or toshiba x300. They will all preform and work about the same. Toshiba would be my pick as I think there norm smr and a bit faster cause 7200rpm, but a 5400rpm would work fine here.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from frozensun in can you recommend a reliable power supple with two 8 pin eps connectors that has a capacity under 800 watts   
    What CPU do you have? It may not need more than a single 8 pin. Just because a mobo has 2 doesn’t mean you need two for every possible CPU it can support. A single 8 pin can overclock a 10700k or less on the Intel side, or a 5800x on the AMD side without issue. An 8 pin can provide over 200 watts of power very easily… most CPU’s stock run at 125 or less. My 10700k @ 5.1 all core in a very heavy stress test does jump up to about. 210-220. But a single 8 pin can handle that (I run a 8+4 since I have them, but it’s not needed).

    LIGISTX got a reaction from adarw in why do xeons degrade in value so quickly compared to consumer chips?   
    Whoever is charging 120 bucks for a 4770k is way over charging…. I have sold a 4770k, with RAM and mobo for 250 bucks….. 4 years ago. Today if I had that for sale I’d look for 150 for all of it.
     
    But Xeon’s end up for cheap because normal consumers are not looking for them so demand is less, and large server liquidators are trying to unload them, so it’s a large supply from folks selling many of them.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from kirashi in Server came in the mail today. Is it safe to turn on?   
    Wow, that was shipped horrible…. Refund?
     
    It may work, I suppose it’s worth trying. But, like, personally I’d get my money back because while the front plastic part doesn’t matter for racking it, it’s likely not really square anymore, and if not the side rails will not go on nicely and it won’t slide.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from The Strange in Safe operating temperature for a "Western Digital" HDD?   
    Google released info years ago stating they saw increased failure of drives over 50c. That was a few years ago at this point tho. 
     
    45 drives releases info every quarter about drive health and statistics. They are a great source of info for these types of questions since they have very detailed information and statistical analysis across tens of thousands of drives. I have not looked at their numbers often, but I bet they also saw under 50 is ideal. 
     
    That said, 55 won’t kill a drive instantly. A buddy of mine runs a 24 bay NAS and his drives are typically over 55, and they have been fine for 4+ years being on 24/7.

    LIGISTX reacted to The_russian in Where do i connect the gpu and where do I connect the cpu?   
    You can use any of those 5 spots labeled CPU/PCI-E for either one. They are the same pin out on the power supply side, the difference is in the cables.

    Nothing at all wrong with trying to learn these things, but I wouldn't try and learn these things in a business environment. These are homelab type questions, not "uptime required to a company" type questions.
     
    I run a homelab specifically because I find these types of things fun, and it does translate to being better equipped to understand corporate networking and infrastructure questions. I started without much knowledge, and via youtube, trial and error, and lots of time, I have a relatively well set up homelab, managed networking, ESXi for virtualization etc etc. But that doesn't mean I would trust my skills for setting up business servers.......... and if your asking these questions you certainly have a lot of learning to do, which is totally fine :). I just recommend looking into as others stated services such as google drive if all you're trying to do is file share. Obviously drive won't provide a VPN, but what is the actual need for a VPN here? A VPN isn't "a secure stable network", its just a way of tunneling traffic between two non-local devices or subnets.
     
    Is there a specific reason you want a VPN? If so, why? We may be able to help accomplish this as well. If all you want to do is have both locations appear on the same network, a couple of netgate routers with a ipsec or openVPN connection set up between them is a super simple and very secure way to do this, and plenty of youtube tutorials which can get you going (I did this between myself and family members houses for fun, cuz again, homelab).

    Yup, this @luckytom94- these days one would be much better off paying for something like Office 365 for Business or Google Suite. Sure, there's a per user monthly cost, but at the end of the day the headaches caused by trying to roll your own server infrastructure for business without a dedicated IT team can be many in the event of a disaster. You still need someone technically savvy to manage a cloud based service, of course, but it removes the need to deal with hardware for the most part.

    What protocols? 
     
    Is this a VPN server or client? 
     
    Id just get onedrive/googledrive or others here. Much easier, much more reliable.

    What protocols would it use to copy files?
     
    Is this a VPN server or client? What is on the other end of the VPN?
     
     
    SInce this is for work, ID get IT or a consultant to help you here ,don't want to mess this up and get someone that knows how to setup a server well.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from GDRRiley in quick question about jerry rigging cables and if its safe and if it works   
    What are you trying to do..?
     
    It sounds like your trying to use this for streaming? I seriously doubt that camera will let you view the video feed over USB. You will need to use the what appears to be RCA based on the image you provided. Regardless of this tho, you wouldn’t ever plug HDMI source into your PC, your HDMI ports won’t accept a signal, they only send signals (unless you have a capture card with HDMI in).

    LIGISTX reacted to Electronics Wizardy in What resource is unzipping intensive on?   
    The CPU is used to uncompress the files. But it doesn't normally take too much cpu to decompress and much more disk io.

    That has to be an RCA cable… at least that’s the signal it’s carrying. RCA is analog, not digital, so no chance of going to USB without some sort of analog to digital conversion.

    Thank you guys for all the help, After setting ram overclock manually instead of using XMP and setting the recomended VCCSA and VCCIO.  It went through a 45min memtest with no errors.  You guys are great 🙂

    Slot Number 2 and 4 if you count from the left?
     
    Seems like you need some VCCSA and VCCIO adjustments, what does the mobo run at stock? I typically go for 1.3V SA and 1.25V IO

    But even with shipping, those chips are about 30USD here, so they should fit in your budget. Id take anouther look.
