  1. Yea 1tb is normally plenty. Id get a m.2 nvme drives. Something like a 970 evo or sn750
  2. Yea that hdd is your problem. WHy do you have such a high end system with only a hdd, its gonna be really slow without a ssd.
  3. What are the specs of your pc? Are you booting from a hard drive?
  4. WHat linkn speed do you see? That seem like a 100m link, which is often caused by a bad cable.
  5. You can use rid on ll of these boxes, there just called jbod as all the drives are accessible in the os or to a raid card, instead of having a raid controller build in. Even with jbod, hotswap is nice for adding drives to a array.
  6. How so? Al the premade ones have hotswap bays, and there are thousands of them in datacenters now. How about the supermicro cases, like the this guy cse-846. CHeck the sas backplane, as this one has a 3gbit one ht I think is limited to 2tib drives https://www.ebay.com/itm/Supermicro-CSE-846E1-R900B-4U-Server-Chassis-2x900W-24-Bay-3Gbps-BPN-SAS-846EL1/283515791664?epid=97011204&hash=item4202dba930:g:lNEAAOSwJWddAsbl
  7. Yup fully normal. The cpu will basically never run at base clock, and run at some turbo speed under load.
  8. Biggest thing is probably bitrate. Look here for the max bitrate, and use those max bitrates you can. At those bitrates, the quality difference isn't too big, but new nvenc, and good x264 is pretty similar, a user is very unlikely to notice the difference.
  9. Well first of all, their not amplifiers, its a repeater. Do you have specific question, normally asking a question on a forum isn't the best way to research.
  10. You can use 2 nvme m.2 drives in that board. You can't run a pcie/nvme drive at sata speeds, they can't use the sata interface That is saying that it will turn of sata ports, but that won't matter as your aren't using all the sata ports.
  11. Do you have a problem your trying to solve? 100m is. bit much for wifi, id run a caable or a pint to pint system. Wifi repeaters normally suck. There not amplifers as they work as a client and make a new access point.
  12. Yea that should work. Onlything you will need is an adapter for the non standard psu connector on those boards.
  13. Those drives with 256mb of cache at 2tb a almost always smr drives, so id generally stay away from them due to very poor writing perofrmance at times. Normally bigger drives are faster, so that 8tb drives would be the faster option here. And files normally just get bigger in the future. The cache doesn't affec tthis slow down at all, the slow down is due to there being less data under the platters when the diamter is smaller.
  14. For about the same price the 9900k is. resonble amount better, and probbly the best cpu upgrade for the budget.
  15. Yea for your uses it would be better. Quiter, faster in mc server uses, much less power usage, and newer generation. Id probably just get a used optiplex or other desktop here. Even faster for MC server, super low power, and cheap.
