    Timotheus2 reacted to AbydosOne in Has anyone got a 12tb drive working in a desktop?   
    Look up PWDIS, then see if you can prevent the drives from getting 3.3V on the SATA plug (either with tape on the connector or with a Molex adapter).

    Timotheus2 reacted to W-L in What's the best way to soundproof this wall?   
    You would be best to install heavy weight curtains about 6 inch from the wall and ensure they go form floor to ceiling, while it won't be perfect it will help. Best solution would be to build a secondary wall and put in sound proof insulation but seeing this is a rental it is not the most practical.

    Timotheus2 reacted to Derkoli in XLR or USB?   
    I quite like mine, It doesn't need drivers, the audio quality is good, provides 48V phantom power etc.

    Timotheus2 got a reaction from Electronics Wizardy in Options for ECC on ITX?   
    ZFS doesn't require ECC.
     
    If you want ECC anyway: AFAIK Ryzen supports ECC. The harder problem is, the motherboard/BIOS also as to support it. I think ASRock is the best option there, but i don't know of any specific MBs supporting it.

    Timotheus2 reacted to Skipple in Computer Chair Rant   
    I'll never understand spending $1000-1500 on a balling gaming PC only to have your ass and back ache in a $75 chair.
     
    Any chair you buy from staples or Ikea or any cheaper chair online retailer if going to be absolutely garbage. Your back and butt will get sore after 1-3 hours. Don't get me started on "gaming" chairs.
     
    Craigslist or Marketplace is full of businesses that are selling their old assets. Chairs from companies like Herman Miller, Steelcase, Humanscale. There chairs will cost about $1000 retail but you can pick them up for 100-200 second hand. Same price as what you would pay for a mid range shitty poo poo chair.
     
    The ones from these companies are made to be sat in for 8+ hours a day. It's amazing the difference you can feel.
     
    Do your ass a favor. Get a good chair.

    It is already PCIe 3.0. PCIe 4.0 is only available with Ryzen 3 and not even supported by your GPU. Even if it was supported, it wouldn't need that much bandwidth. If you want high speed storage, then you might need a new motherboard, but you really don't need more than 1 GB/s (2x PCIe 2, your motherboards M.2 connection) for game loading.

    It depends.
    What games are you playing? Do they need more CPU or more GPU power? What resolution is your monitor? FHD will need more CPU power and 4K more GPU power. What frame rate is your monitor? 144Hz in any modern game would be a struggle with a 4790K. The RAM and motherboard won't be a bottleneck, unless you have scientific calculations that need really high RAM speed.

    Timotheus2 got a reaction from EvilChuck in ITX home server build   
    He doesn't seem to need a dedicated GPU, as such he can get 10Gbit for the PCIe slot. WiFi should be done with a separate AP anyway.
     
    Do you need high CPU power? AMD only has APUs with 4 cores and integrated graphics is really nice for installation/troubleshooting. Intel might be the better choice then. I could not find any AM4 mITX board with 2 NICs, but Intel has some (mostly ASRock). What about Supermicro boards with soldered (low power) CPUs and high end NICs? Those are made for this kind of application.

    You could also check out NUC style mini PCs. They are prebuilts, but smaller than any mITX case and usually VESA mountable (probably the best way to mount under a desk). Many do have dual NICs and the power should be enough for your application.

    Timotheus2 got a reaction from minibois in Need help comparing which word comes before in the alphabet (JAVA)   
    You could iterate over the strings and compare each character until they are different or one string ends. Comparing chars should work with "<" and don't forget to set both strings to lower case. I won't post code, since this seems like homework.

    Timotheus2 got a reaction from Astac in Mesh network with older routers   
    What do you want to use this for? Switching these WiFis to the same SSID and password would allow seamless switching. No need for mesh, if you already have ethernet at each location.
     
    OpenWrt does support 802.11s based mesh, if you can install it on the other routers as well.

    Timotheus2 got a reaction from Slayed_Asian in Multi-Display Support   
    DisplayPort 1.2 supports Multi Stream Transport (MST). This allows you to transport multiple signals over one cable/port, you just need a MST compatible splitter to connect the displays. DP 1.2s bandwidth allows for up to 4x 1080p 60Hz streams at the same time.
     
    Your idea should also work fine. You don't need SLI.

    Timotheus2 got a reaction from shadow8t4 in Moving out, need Wifi   
    Do you have ethernet in the walls?
     - Yes? A few APs at key locations would be best.
     - No? Probably Mesh then.

    Timotheus2 reacted to Froody129 in i7-3770 with a pascal or turing card   
    I think you underestimate the i7. 
     
    Depending on resolution and settings something like a 1070 or a 1080 is fine. I think a 2060 is about equivalent to that.

    Well, I got rid of my 5.1 Logitech system and went 2.0 with the Mackie speakers.  Love them, and don't miss the "subwoofer" at all.
     
    I prefer better sound than more of it.

    A suggestion...
     
    Get *everything* first, sort out what is important later. Data recovery is hard on the drive, you may not get another chance to sort through it looking for more...

    Timotheus2 reacted to Electronics Wizardy in laptop for pragramming   
    Id argue the keyboard is the most important, as you will spend a lot of time editing text.
     
    Id personally get a used thinkpad or latitude for the good keyboards, it will also be about the same speed as that dell you were looking at.

    The point here isnt speed but security, WS2008 is EOL and since its gonna be exposed to the internet it is highly dangerous to use it....  Besides why buy windows when Debian is just as good(if not better)...

    Please don't use 2008, it has had support dropped already, if you want windows server run 2016 or 2019 on it. No reason to run very old software thats not supported.
     
    2016 and 2019 are just much better and don't need much more hardware to run.
     
    But yea, go linux here, 2008 shoudln't be used these days.
