  1. I'm in need of some help finding a good backup solution for my homelab. Currently I'm running a TrueNAS Core server with about 10 TB of backup storage available. I used to backup my Windows machines using Acronis True Image, however I want to get away from running the backup directly on the workstations and move that workload to the server if I can. So, a server to client approach would be nice, tell me if I'm crazy for wanting this in my home lab. Currently, I have one Windows 10 workstation, one Linux workstation that is being used as a Minecraft server, and a VM running Linux fo
  2. This is true but i would also be aiming for a more silent PC as well and i would like to try to overclock it more then it already is if i could.
  3. I plan to be liquid cooling my current system in the future and was wondering if it is really worth liquid cooling the VRM and/or the South Bridge. I do overclock, my CPU is overclocked to 4.2 Ghz at the moment but i would like to try to get more if i can. I know that actively cooling the VRM can help with overclocking but i'm wondering if its really worth it. Here is my current system config that: MoBo: Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 CPU: i7-4770k RAM: 32GB 1600 Mhz GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB DirectCU II Current CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 PowerSupply: Corsair 850W

    Headphone suggestions

    Ok, im going to be making a list and going to try to find them at some stores near me so i can get a taste of wats out there. Ill be trying other stuff too. I think comfort is going to be a biggy for me the more i think about it cause i could be wearing these thing for hours on end. Also ive had some experences w/ uncomfortable headsets. I currently have a Razer Carcharias and it feels fine for about 2 or 3 hours before i feel soreness on the top edge of my left ear. So these heafphones might be a replacement for my razer's hense why i am getting an Antlion Modmic to put on the headset.

    The ATH-M50 do look like a great pare of headphones, watching some reviews right now. I am willing to spend a little bit more for the better quality but not too over board of course.
  10. Im looking for a good quality set of headphones that have a nice bass but doesn't drown out the trebles too much. Im going to be using these headphones everywhere, whether if im gaming at home, to just listening to music from my computer or from my ipod. Im looking to spend around $100 but if i can get away with cheaper for some nice quality headphones then thats great. I will be attaching an antlion modmic onto the headphones as well. Thanks

    What Should I Get?

    now idk about the soundcard being worse then then onboard, but I can see were it wouldn't make a difference maybe. ok, so based on the feedback so far I think I'll just get the ASUS ROG Hero MOBO. Unless there are any other objections stating that I should go with the alternative Z87-Plus + Soundcard, or a DAC?

    What Should I Get?

    Well here is the headset I use currently: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826153043 here is the sound card I am thinking about getting: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102049&Tpk=Creative%20Sound%20Blaster%20Zx I only plan on getting new headphones when these ones die, and I don't know how long that will take, maybe a year or more, They are still pretty new. I also forgot to mention that I have a pioneer receiver and I have a 5.1 surround sound system set up right now and I do plan on using it exchangeabley with my headset. Does this ma

    What Should I Get?

    Ok so I'm planning to buy all my computer parts this coming Black Friday and i pretty much have all the parts picked out excepted I'm at a fork in the road; i cant decide which audio solution is right for me exactly? Yes i have read the FAQ and that helped lots but i need some opinions on stuff here. Basically what i have narrowed it down to is i either get the ASUS ROG Hero MOBO with is SupremeFX Audio and a bunch of other features thats on the MOBO that is not Audio related, OR the Creative Labs Z series sound card (specifically the Zx sound card) with the ASUS Z87-Plus MOBO. I plan on li
  14. Im looking at the asus's version of the graphics cards. the graphics card that you linked is the cheapest one on the site and probably not a very good quality. you just linked me a bunch of AMD mobo's when i said that i am not going for an AMD CPU....
  15. Alright cool, but i looked at it on newegg and the price for a 770 is currently cheaper than a 7970. i still think im going to stick w/ the 770. couple questions then: First, with the Nvidia Holiday bundle out and ending on November 26th i believe, i was thinking about getting the graphics card right away before the bundle ends, do you think it is worth it or should i just wait for black Friday and/or cyber Monday? Second, would you have any cheaper mobos in mind, particularly from ASUS or gigabyte? Keep in mind that im trying my best to color coordinate things and so far the theme seems
