  1. I actually have 2 internal USB 3.1 ports but no internal SATA ports, only SATA X4 which needs a special adapter that I don’t really want to buy so it’d be better to go the USB route I think.
  2. So would you recommend staying with the USB install or the SSD Install path? The SSD is 100GB, but I heard FreeNAS doesn't actually need an L2 ARC The USB Drive is only 32GB, but its USB 3.1 so fast enough.
  3. Yea windows keys can be had for almost nothing on eBay, and they have a money back guarantee. In addition, Windows 10 is already free to download.
  4. Yea it appears as if the discount I was referring to is no longer available. You can get windows 10 for $109.99 at Newegg though. Newegg Link
  5. That PC build is way better than the original one, but you didn't take into consideration that windows 10 is like $89.99. Also the likeliness of finding ANY graphics card even marginally close to realistic pricing is pretty poor at the moment unfortunately. You might want to consider waiting a little while to build a new system.
  6. I recently got a good deal on an HPE ProLiant DL380 G9 Server, and was wondering what the best settings for FreeNAS would be. The specs of the server are: 2x 6 Core E5-2620v3 2.4GHz 32GB RAM 10GbE NIC Redundant 800w Power Supplies 12x WD 500GB HDD (WDC WD5000AAKX-60U6AA0) 1x Intel 100GB SSD as boot and cache drive since I read from STH that a USB install isn't recommended. If your wondering why the AAKX Drives its because I got them all for free from my work as "spares" that were no longer needed. How should I set up the drives
  7. I would remove any devices from your boot order that you are not using (meaning disable the ability to boot from them). Make sure that the HDD is FIRST in the boot list order and if you are using UEFI make sure that its the UEFI partition that is the first in the boot order.
  8. Totally fine, I must've just not seen that you had said that. Hopefully someone with more information will be able to assist you at this point, or consider contacting NVIDIA or your graphics card manufacturer to see what they have to say / offer.
  9. Oops, I was thinking about the 3600 not the 2600. I think that you will have some problems with the 2600. I would recommend selling that and getting at least a 3600 if your motherboard supports it for that GPU. Otherwise, maybe when RTX 20 series are a reasonable price again, consider picking up a 2060.
  10. NVIDIA has "GeForce Experience" which has game ready drivers, but this shouldn't be a problem, it should in theory actually help with games. Unless there is a defective driver release from NVIDIA. Maybe try using this to install game ready drives?
  11. They should, in theory, work just fine with each other. I would estimate a bottleneck of under 5% which isn't much. EDIT: Please ignore this message, see below.
  12. You aren't using any of those "game ready" enhancers, are you? One of these could be interfering with the GPU. Example: Razer Cortex
  13. You have hidden items turned on. To shut that off, at the top click "view", and then un-check the box next to hidden items.
  14. that board supports up to 5100MHz, your 3600 will work fine
