  1. hey guys, I got a pair of 3 tb hdd in raid 1 but i’m changing MB to a b450 that doesn’t support Raid. Can I just plus a hdd in the nee mobo and get back all my data or is there a trick I should know?
  2. Good point, Check that you have and NVME slot before buying an MNVE SSD.
  3. An SSD is about the only significant upgrade you can make with that budget. You can probably find something on amazon in the range of 1Tb. Crucial P2 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive seems within your budget. Maybe a cooler if you are stuck with intel's poor excuse for a cooler to gain a little performance but the NVME SSD is a much better choice.
  4. The typo in your tittle made my eyes bleed a little... Also what is you Budget?
  5. You seem to be going budget so any pair of dual channel 2400 mhz stick will do. (2 x 4 or 2 x 8) Also you have enough power but not knowing the make of your PSU, I can't say if it's good or not,.
  6. Thx A lot of what's in there can be replaced with a smartphone so it might be a nice revisit. Also I'm more more about the bag itself than what's is in.
  7. You'd be surprised. This is still a very decent CPU. It's just hard to find the Mobo for it. DDR3 is still plentiful and unless you OCed it to death, it's still very servicable.
  8. In my experience, you'll get more value if you sell the RAM/Mobo/Cpu in a combo 150-200$ US for all 3 would be top dollar in Canada. I personally wouldn't buy a 10 years old CPU without a motherboard. Finding the Mobo would undo any possible economies of buying a used CPU.
  9. Hey group! I hope everyone is doing fine. I've been working data and software for 20+ years but with lockdown and @home work, I've been doing way more on the side home support than usual. find myself in need of advice on how to lug all my stuff. I carry an iFixit analog kit, some usb thumb drives, a heat gun, some plastic sleeve box, spare SDD and HDD, an enclosure, screwdrivers, pliers, box cutter knife, thermal compound, some cables (Power plug, Sata, USB, a patchcord and crossover, Display port, HDMI) a magnetic screw tray, a bag of zip ties and a bag of screws. I put all
  10. Yeah kinda. It's not dramatic but when you get a chance (like this summer when things calm down), you should upgrade with a 2060 or a 3060 ti to get even performance of your 3700x.
  11. Neither were The Ford Pinto Google + The ET video game Also all Sharknado movies are masterpieces... Seriously... SCSI man T'was worth the 400$ for 40 gigs back then.
  12. Read this https://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/IDE_master/slave#:~:text=Slave is one of two main settings for a hard disk.&text=If you have a single,the second%2C or secondary drive. And get a USB key instead of using that garbage.
  13. Old stuff... The PSU might be tired and current variation would be enough to give you random BSOD
  14. I Think you are using a server card... hence the grayed out option. But I might be talking out of my ass.
