  1. While this could be a complete coincidence, after installing my 3080 ti I've had on and of game and PC crashing. Nothing else was altered besides taking out my 2070 and putting in the 3080 ti. The drivers for the GPU are all installed my PC is up to date as far as other drivers and updates go.


    I'm running 2 LG monitors at 2k, which my system doesn't seem to mind until it randomly crashes or a game crashes. I never have high temps and I don't ever experience lag at any other time.


    Any thoughts?

  2. Depends a lot on what type of games you play and the type of color accuracy you are going for in your content. Realistically, just because you have a higher color accuracy on your monitor doesn't necessarily mean that everyone viewing your content would be able to appreciate it in the way you made it as many people don't even know there is such a thing as color accuracy.

    What model of nas where you looking at. Synology has cheaper models, like 4 bay models for $300


    HOw much storage spaces do you need?

    General junk file storage of files that I don't want eating up space on my main rig.


    Down the line, web dev projects, portfolios, PC backups(my rig has 2TB SSD storage right now), and video content storage.

    This one's a pretty good value. 9 bay, two 10 gig and 2.5 ports.

    Fine for just about everything unless you wanted to run X86 apps/VMs.


    Synology is a bit more user friendly. QNAP's OS tends to have a lot more freedom, but can get complicated.

    Does it have an app with a GUI or is it more web-based?


    I wouldn't be running any apps or VMS, mostly just junk files that need to be kept. Maybe some web dev projects(just stored, not being ran).

    Prebuilt NASes have a lot of development costs that go into building and maintaining the software that runs them. You get a ready to go package with a warranty. You could always build one yourself and run something like TrueNAS Core, but the savings is you doing everything yourself and not having your warranties all in one place. I went the route of QNAPs and am happy with the decision. I love building my own PCs, but when it comes to NASes, I just want something that runs out of the box.

    Any unit in particular of theirs that you've liked?

  6. I personally have two LG Ultragear Monitors and they are freakin amazing.


    The color quality is great.

    The response time and refresh rate have been consistent since I got them. Plus they are one of the few monitors with a price friendly range to have G-SYNC.

  7. I was looking at getting a NAS server for some network storage.


    But for a 5-bay storage NAS, Synology's unit cost $699 on Newegg. That seems steep, especially with it being diskless.


    I'm new to this sorta thing but was wondering if this is just the price mark across all the different brands there is or if there is a cheaper all in one or even DIY project for decent transfer speeds and around the same storage capacity.


    I'm open to different brand suggestions and build guides!

    yes in fact you are correct, there is nothing in stock and/or with very exorbitant prices, get yourself an rx 580 placeholder(if you can find one under $200 and get Stock Drops Notifications so that you'll know when cards are in stock, and quickly purchase them, you'll need to be quick because there are bots set up by scalpers who will buy them and sell them on ebay for 2x,3x the price.

    I just checked 580's on Newegg and they are priced above $500 😞


  9. Is your CPU clocked higher than just a stock GHz?

    If so, try to let it run at a stock speed.


    You could definitely be trying to pull too much power, then it only being noticeable when your CPU kicks into high gear.

    i9 chips are well known to be power hogs. 


    Correct me if I'm wrong but don't i9's have a dedicated GPU?

    You could try taking out your GPU and running a game based solely on the dedicated intel GPU(You would need to uninstall your GPU drivers and install the Intel GPU drivers to test this) just to see if the game will run without restarting your PC. If it continues to restart, then the problems doesn't stem from your 1080ti. If the problem is solved, then I'd still be willing to bet that it isn't your GPU still but rather a better argument for using too much power with GPU installed because i9's REALLY LIKE POWER.
