    Really interested by server stuff, would consider myself a budget enthusiast considering I'm at least still on the X99 Chipset with an nvme boot drive and a gtx 1080, would like to be able to move from using intel rapid storage technology to a real raid card with more drives as well as getting a xeon and some ECC ram. Other than that I really like space and the UFC.
  • Biography
    Got into computers around late 2015-early 2016. Had been wanting to build a pc as some of my friends had and it looked cool. I had been working in computer sales at Best Buy and eventually just got all the parts I needed. Since then I have found a new love for computers and I am currently working towards a degree in electrical engineering, I am also minoring in nuclear engineering and math.

  1. I didn't even think about that, it still has a north bridge so that makes sense. My question seems kinda dumb now lol, thank you
  2. Does anyone know if the Q6600 supports ECC Memory? I recently got an Asus P5W board which says it supports ECC DDR2 which I already have some of, but Intel ARK doesn't say if the Q6600 has ECC support or not This is the list of supported CPU's for the board: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/P5W_DH_Deluxe/HelpDesk_CPU/
  3. So I recently got Star Wars Squadrons and have found it to be the game I didn't realize how bad I wanted. Anyway anyone have any recommendations for flight sticks and throttles, the keyboard and mouse controls are good, but a flight stick and throttle would really make the game, plus if I ever get Microsoft flight sim I could use them for that as well
  4. I mean just don't leave it plugged in well past it being full charged, if you charge at a higher wattage than what it came with it will degrade the battery faster, but it also charges faster, as always there is a trade off

    Sound Cards

    I got a dac from Schiit audio and it made a huge difference in audio quality, personally I would recommend going with something external like that over an internal sound card as you will avoid a lot of electrical noise. idk how much that actually matters to have it outside, but the Electrical Engineer in me thinks that having an external dac will sound a lot better than a sound card for that reason, though I have never done any extensive testing with something like an oscilloscope to see how much that really matters
  6. I'd check the motherboard manual to see what that light is for, typically that will tell you at the least vaguely what the issue is
  7. I mean VRM is a big thing for a high end cpu but something like the MSI B550 tomahawk's VRM can likely handle any cpu you could throw at it
  8. I would check to see if there are any driver or windows updates. If that doesn't do it then I would make sure there isn't something in your router settings that might potentially limit speed to that specific device
  9. It is an ADATA XPG SX6000 that is technically under warranty still but I don't have an invoice to prove my purchase from an authorized reseller. Probably going to try and see if they can just do it anyway, or see if I can figure out a way to get an invoice
  10. I don't think it is under warranty, it's not a huge deal as I have plenty of other drives, it's just annoying because I can't get it to work and I am not seeing anything that would explain why unless it really just is that the drive itself is messed up in an unfixable way
  11. That's the weird part is it doesn't give an error it just says it did it but then when I try to reformat it says it is write protected again
  12. Yeah I went into cmd and then diskpart and tried selecting the disk then clean, as well as attributes disk clear readonly, and reformatting the specific volumes in diskpart
  13. I thought at first the drive may be dying but when I run a smart status check on the drive it passes so I figured my install just got messed up, I have no idea what made it start acting this way
  14. I have a drive that had windows on it that got bjorked somehow. It boots to the thing that list troubleshooting options like reset this pc, command prompt, etc. Nothing in there works at all including reset pc with or without files, so I tried hooking it up to another computer to wipe it and windows won't let me reformat it since it is write protected. I have tried just about every fix I can find online including clear disk attributes in diskpart, I also tried clearing the write protection in regedit and still no dice. Tried clearing the disk via a windows installer and that didn't work either
