  1. Hia, I bought and fixed a server a few weeks ago, installed some new hardware and the newest version of Linux Mint. I've been messing around with different software solutions for what I wanna do and I finally have everything planned. The problem is, now I've got a very messy server with lots of different crap on it and I wanna wipe it completely. There is one SSD (with OS) and two HDD's (formatted with ZFS) in the machine and I wanna wipe everything, the ZFS formatting, all files and start all new. How would I best go about doing that? Cheers
  2. Hiya, quick question: Are there any downsides for running a NAS on the host level and everything else in VM's on a small personal multi purpose server?
  3. These temps are on the warmer part of the spectrum, but definietly acceptable. Nothing to worry about.
  4. 2600x if you plan on buing a seperate cooler and 2600 if you are going with the one in the box.
  5. Do you really need 3TB of SSD storage? Seems a little extreme, but I won't stop you. If you are planning on long term storage for pictures and games you rarely play, maybe get a large HDD to 1/2 the price? But you know better than me what you need and want, so it's nothing major. Maybe trade it down a littlebit, just to save some money for an icecream or ten. Good job on the build btw, going to be a killer pc!
  6. I agree with @GoldenLag, a used 290x has almost double the preformance of a 1050 at the same price (when you buy 290x used). The CPU might be bottlenecking it, but nothing to major.
  7. Yes that would work out. You would have to have a really weird configuration for the Mobo and GPU not to be compatible with each other. What you should worry about is the CPU (right socket), Cooler(does it fit in the case), GPU (length) and Mobo (Atx, Matx, aso) .
  8. That motherboard only supports ddr2 memory, the HP computer has ddr3 memory, so it would not work ?
  9. Sure! That one looks nice, good find!
  10. I am sorry, but there is no way the thermaltake case would work. The main board literally just won't fit inside, 100% guaranteed.
  11. Aight, so you have a lot to choose from, but it is virtually impossible to find a case that is as cheap and sexy as that thermaltake one. Part of the reason why is because ATX systems are bigger and therefore require more material to be built, so they are more expensive. Here are a few alternatives: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/JcgPxr/corsair-270r-atx-mid-tower-case-cc-9011106-ww https://pcpartpicker.com/product/2hzv6h/fractal-design-case-fdcaarcbl https://pcpartpicker.com/product/wNrG3C/cooler-master-case-nse400kkn2 https://pcpartpicker.com/produc
  12. I would not recommend it, but you are a man of free will so you can theoretically do whatever you want
  13. That's great! It seems like you have two hard drives, both being 3.5" (it's a little hard to see the bottom one). That means you need to find a case that can hold two 3.5" disks, which 80% of cases can. One sec, let me see if i can find something similar to the Thermaltake one.
  14. Yes, then it seems like you need to follow @Slottr's advise, that is an ATX system. Make sure that the case you choose has enough space for your storage devices, like SSD's and hard drives. You should be able to figure out how many you have by simpy looking in file explorer or, more prefirably, open up the case and take a look. I have attached an image pointing to where the storage devices are in the HP computer. When shopping for a new case, make sure that it can support all the storage devices you have. You should be able to find how many a given case supports by looking under "expansio
  15. Hey! Do you have the HP Workstation Z220 SFF or CMT?
