  1. That doesn't answer my question. I understand what the maximum acceptable temperature is (according to AMD's site, its 95*C), but does sitting at that max temp for a sustained amount of time (lets say...16 hours a day for 5 weeks) actually cause damage to the CPU?
  2. So I'm running a giveaway for my buddies in my discord, whoever has the most Folding At Home points by the end of the month gets Discord Nitro, and each month thereafter whoever has the highest will get Discord Nitro. Folding At Home is super easy to install so...great, cool, awesome. NOW that all my friends are running Folding At Home, a couple of them are asking about sustained high temps on their CPUs (they really want Discord Nitro I guess), my buddy's R5 1600 peaks at 95*C and presumably it's staying up in the low 90s. My question is: Is there any REAL danger in running the
  3. Go for the 2TB Black. Green sucks so hard and blue isn't amazing, but the value for a 1tb is pretty good...
  4. The black is rumored to have better endurance (can't find hard specs on that in my 5 minutes of googling), and has a 5 year warranty.
  5. Oh yeah, totally. But I've found that 500GB allows you to not have to manage your games quite as harshly as the 250GB, but to each their own. The 960 EVO is pretty top-tier for consumer stuff. Also: 144 Hz monitors aren't that bad... https://smile.amazon.com/Acer-GN246HL-Bbid-24-Inch-Display/dp/B00KO4518I/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1518798726&sr=1-3&keywords=144hz
  6. You could even upgrade to the 8700k, buy a few 2TB WD Reds, and turn your system into an Unraid NAS + Gaming Box. See here:
  7. You're going for the high-end stuff on everything but the drives. Buy a 500GB Samsung 960 EVO and a 1TB WD Black. The performance on the WD Black is WAY better than the Blue.
  8. Some assumptions I'm making: - Your computer has already worked in the past with different RAM - Your RAM sticks are all DDR3. - You have a clear workspace. Preferably a dinner table (don't scratch it) with enough space for everything (including your monitor and keyboard) - You have a few hours to do this. This guide will pretty much test everything in your computer. Steps to follow: 1. Unplug all extras. You don't need your front panel USB ports, mouse, hard drive, graphics card to do this test (your motherboard should have a couple video-out port
  9. Run a script to output to a txt file in google drive. In command prompt (or powershell), run this command: nslookup myip.opendns.com resolver1.opendns.com This will return something like this: Your IP will be the second IP listed. Then go look at that .txt file. Or you can do what Enderman says. It's probably easier.
  10. The point is to use the computer that you already own as a NAS box and as a regular computer without having to spend any more money than the just cost of the hard drives.
  11. Linus also has some videos on UnRaid if you're interested in getting your computer to work doubletime as a computer and as a NAS box...
  12. Nice. Well this one supports 2 HDDs, I'd go buy some 2tb WD Reds or Seagate IronWolf drives. They are designed to handle 24/7 operation. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822108679&cm_re=nas-_-22-108-679-_-Product
  13. How many HDD's do you want to have? Do you plan on doing any kind of RAID for disk-failure protection?
  14. Do you want this to do any sort of media processing like Plex?
