    Bruno_A got a reaction from Avicorn in ASUS P9X79 WS/IPMI BIOS updates   
    I had the exact same board. I bought it on eBay as a "normal" ASUS P9Z79 WS, but it turned out to be the IPMI version. I returned it for the reason that it was too expensive to have those kinds of quirks, such as not finding BIOS versions for it. It was also very very picky in terms of RAM.

    While definitely doable, it's just not as practical as getting two different systems. It is definitely cool that you can have one machine and have two people play games on it, at the same time, however, that's pretty much it, something cool.

    Bruno_A got a reaction from Prasad001 in 2 fans vs 1 fan on CPU heatsink.   
    The Gammaxx 400 is a good cooler (I owned one, myself), and you can probably get away using only one fan at low RPM and have happy days, with low noise, depending on what fans you using. Two fans will not really give you a performance increase (maybe a couple degrees, but probably not even that), however, I am not sure if you're able to use two fans at minimum RPM, instead of one spinning slightly faster. Just try one fan, at the lowest RPM possible and see if the temperatures are good.

    Bruno_A got a reaction from rattacko123 in China turns on your game timer for those under 18   
    I like this, chinese players will not be as skilled, now. Kidding aside, I wonder if this will work, since VPNs are a thing and it will not work for offline games. It should be the parents' job, anyway, to limit the amount of hours their kid spends playing games. But even then, just simply taking their gaming away, might not fix the issue. Speaking from experience, as a kid, I was uninterested in school. I had a laptop that I was using a lot of the time and, when I got bad results, which was not a surprise, my mom would take the laptop. I still wouldn't study. It's a matter of interest as well. Fortunately, I grew up, realised education was crucial, studied and landed a good job in IT.

    Use the router IP as the DNS as well. You can try and set up the IP in the DHCP settings of the router.

    Ehh, not really. A solid gaming machine, for sure, but the CPU is 3 years old, for example. I'm sure they don't use the best motherboards out there. The NVMe SSD is also last gen.

    Going the USB Distro route does not care about the current W10 installation.
    You boot straight from the USB, it doesn't need the drive in any way to work.
    Once it's booted from USB you can just explore the broken windows 10 hard drive and copy everything to another USB drive (or internal drive, whatever you have to put the data on)
     
    As long as the USB drive is recognized in the BIOS of the system, you are good to go!
    You need another PC to prepare the USB drive tho (and have a spare usb drive)

    Bruno_A reacted to For Science! in GPU temperatures with liquid cooling   
    Fan speed should always be coupled to fluid temperature not a component temperature for this very reason. Incoorporating a 2-pin temperature sensor and tying the fan speed to T_SENSOR in BIOS will allow you to do this.

    Bruno_A reacted to nick name in GPU temperatures with liquid cooling   
    You could get an adapter for the fan header on the GPU?  I know some folks that use the NZXT Kraken G12 AIO mount will do this, however, I'm not certain how many fans you want to run based off the GPU temp and how many the GPU header can handle.  I'd assume that GPU header is pretty robust though as many will run three fans at pretty high speeds.

    Bruno_A got a reaction from xARACHN1D in My parents won't get me a PC   
    I'm surprised this post is still going. I'll give my two cents:
     
    I had my first laptop when I was around 11 years old, for free, from a government programme. Basic machine, did just fine for word processing, etc. As a kid, I barely did any school work on it, I mainly played light games. My parents bought me a new one after using my old one for quite a few years, and dropping it accidentally. I was very lucky to get a fairly good, with a core i7 that today, is still a good laptop. Either way, it wouldn't game, which is what I wanted badly, and my parents wouldn't just buy me a new one for this purpose, so, one summer, I went abroad, to where I am currently living with family, and got a summer job, where I earned a fair amount of money. I worked really hard for that money, so hard indeed, that I thought twice before spending it on a PC that could do something that wasn't really a necessity. I still did it, quite a few months later, and while it provided me with good moments, I whish I had spent it elsewhere, such as travelling with friends, and going out more. I am now 21 years old, with a good job, and able to afford a good machine and most of the things I want, within reason, obviously, however, being abroad, I don't really have friends to go out with, anymore, and when I had, I feel like I wasted my time spending time on a computer, doing nothing productive. My point is, you're 13 years old and you have a laptop. Therefore, you're already lucky, like I was. Enjoy your youth doind other stuff, which you will probably not be able to do as a young adult. You'll have plenty of time for gaming, and if you just feel like you need to buy a new machine, just to fit in, don't. Don't be influenced with something that's not important. You don't really need a better laptop, and even if you did, if your parents don't get you one, it's probably because they can't. It's really easy to think that money is easy to earn, until you actually start earning your own.

    I would clean it up, if it's dusty, and change the thermal paste. The stock heatsink is just fine, even for gaming. It shouldn't be hitting 95ºC.

    Agreed. I am not sure about the WD Reds and Ironwolf warranties, but I was impressed to find that if your WD Black, a more expensive than your standard WD Blue, fails, WD will send you a replacement before they receive the broken one. This is not something you finf in WD Blue drives, for example, and I would expect a similar, or even better system, with enterprise and 24/7 operation targeted drives.

    I was setting up a NAS, at work, and one of the brand new hard drives, Seagate Ironwolf drives, which are built for continuous operation, was dead on arrival. I call it bad luck, as they are actually great drives. I don't think you would regret going with Seagate. Keep in mind, however, that the drive you linked, is a consumer drive, and you might get more reliability with an Ironwolf or WD Red drive.

    Bruno_A reacted to Wh0_Am_1 in 8-10TB sata drive recommendations for storage server   
    Western Digital and Seagate are both extremely high quality drive manufacturers, although I would recommend aiming for Seagate's Ironwolf series instead, as the Barracuda line is basically Seagate's WD blue drives, meanwhile Ironwolf are like WD Reds, the reason why WD Red's and Seagate's Iron wolf drives are so expensive, is because they are designed for 24/7 operation in close proximity to other working drives, and they generally have better warranties (and sometimes even drive savers warranties).
