  1. Is there noone who can shed some light on this matter?
  2. I have huge difficulties finding the answer for what I thought was a very simple question. About this Kingston RAM (pdf datasheet direct link to Kingston's site: https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/KVR16E11_8.pdf) DATA Model: KVR16E11/8 8GB 2Rx8 1G x 72-Bit PC3-12800 CL11 ECC 240-Pin DIMM QUESTION: Can I mix the modules, of course with the exact same model name, but with different chips on them as well as different numbers on the left and right labels on the modules (see attached picture, which was found randomly on Google search). The
  3. @Electronics Wizardy Thank you very much.
  4. @maxtch Thank you. Do you have any suggestions regarding memory? How much is needed?
  5. Does anyone have any advice on the amount of needed RAM please? Thank you.
  6. @Electronics Wizardy Thank you very much.
  7. Thank you both. @Electronics Wizardy @Jameszy Proxmox is on top of my list, certainly. I agree, NVMe as a boot device with VMs on there is a good choise. The E5-2623v3 is indeed the less powerhungry of the three, so perhaps that one is the best choice, if cores and clockspeed is not an issue? Will the extra cores and a bit higher clock speed of the 5820K make much of a difference in performance, or is it too small? Perhaps Xeon for 24/7 use and less power is a better choise over cores and clockspeed? 4 vs 6 cores. Perhaps not a big deal, but with all running from
  8. I have some hardware lying around, and I am in the process of assemble it for a home NAS. The NAS will be used for storage (HDDs) and perhaps a single VM if possible (will be put on an SSD, if necessary). VMs are not main at all though. I do not plan on buying anything at all for this configuration, especially not if what I have is sufficient already. This is the hardware I have and thus planning to use for the build. HARDWARE - ASUS X99-M WS/SE (no WiFi), 4 RAM slots, max. 64GB (4x16GB). 2x 1Gb LAN connection. - RAM, Kingston, various 4GB, 8GB and 16GB modules, 2133MHz,
  9. Thank you Jarsky. That was exactly the information I was hoping for. Thank you very much for taking your time to also elaborate on it. I very much appreciate it.
  10. Thank you all for your input. I am particularly looking for input in regard to having an SSD installed in a NAS and setup as a basic disk where apps/VMs etc. can be installed without any RAID on the SSD. The HDDs in the NAS will be setup in a RAID6 used for storage/data only (no apps or VMs running off of the HDD RAID6 volume). With this setup I aim to make and SSD cache obsolete as the SSD cache would not be able to perform better than the basic disk SSD itself anyway. In this scenario with the SSD installed as a basic disk with no RAID whatsoever, would a consumer grade SSD be fi
  11. If we are looking at the CPU only, it would depend on the price. The performance seems similar perhaps with minor better performance on the intel. If it is also the cheapest one, then get the intel. I don't think you will go wrong with either.
  12. Well in that case go for the 9400f as it has two more cores. It will perhaps benefit you more in the long run, and the system will last longer (future proofing). The thing to consider is also the price. If they are priced similar, go for the 9400f. If the price difference is huge go for the 9100f. They perform similar, but the 9400f has two more cores.
  13. A thing to consider is also which other hardware you already have. Are you planning on putting the cpu and gpu into another computer with already purchased hardware thus this will be an upgrade, or are you buying all new hardware? If the latter is the case, I would go for something AMD as it seems to be the better bang for buck choice these days.
  14. I definately agree with Plouffe on this one. The GTX 760 is already getting old and unable to hold its own. I would consider it a waste of money investing in yet another 760 card, especially if you are playing demanding newer games. Having two cards in SLI will also draw more power resulting in more heat and a higher electric bill than a newer better performing card would.
