  1. Yeah, we're aware that it's kind of not worth keeping at this point, but also we don't currently have the money for a new server. Things are tight, and the pandemic certainly hasn't helped. Thanks for being so helpful and quick to respond though!
  2. The storage controller is the Smart Array E200i
  3. Well I know the storage controller is the Smart Array E200i
  4. I knew it was a stretch but I thought it was at least worth asking Thanks for the tip
  5. Yeah, with prices being so inflated, there really isn't much you can do buying new right now. Buying used is a good idea but it varies wildly depending on your area, so it's hard to know what you can get
  6. I honestly recommend waiting a bit before building your first PC. Parts availability has been really bad lately and costs have gone up significantly. I would wait at least a few months for things to stabilize. That being said, PC Part Picker does have a parts guide for around this budget! AMD guide https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/PB6MnQ/entry-level-amd-gaming-build Intel guide https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/J4V323/entry-level-intel-gaming-build So if you really want to build now these are very good references. I do recommend waiting though
  7. The company I work with has a relatively old server with SAS drive bays. These drives have filled up and need to be replaced. They are mechanical, and I'd like to upgrade them to SSDs. I know SAS SSDs exist, but we happen to have a few NVMe M.2s we aren't currently using. I have very limited experience with SAS and was wondering if there is any compatibility between both standards. I found the following adapter on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-M-2-U-2-Adapter-SFF-8639/dp/B073W65QX6/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=nvme+to+sas&qid=1612533136&sr=8-3
  8. I'm in the US so shipping is fairly easy. The Fuma 2 technically fits but with literally half a milimeter left over, manufacturing tolerances could make it not fit. I don't really want to take that risk.
  9. Yeah, Noctua performs great but I really don't understand why they still use beige and brown 30 years after everyone else has moved to black.
  10. I'm using the O11 Dynamic. I know it's designed for liquid cooling but Gamers Nexus evaluated the air flow and it's still pretty good. The lack of clearance is why I need a medium to low profile cooler. I haven't decided on ram though.
  11. I need a cooler for my 3900x. Because of form factor I need something medium to low profile. Is the Dark Rock TF any good? I've barely been able to find any reviews. Will it at least perform better than the included wraith prism? Otherwise it would be a waste. Does anyone have any alternate recommendations for medium to low profile air coolers? Aesthetics are important. I like that the Dark Rock TF is all black.
  12. I need a 4k, 32 inch display for creative work. Which means I need the best possible color accuracy. I don't intend to do any gaming on it. I was hoping I could get some recommendations because I'm a little lost and researching monitors has become stressful. 32 inches seems big, but I really need the space to get detail in my art. I'd even go bigger if there was a good option. I'm hoping to spend under 500 dollars, but if a monitor is perfect, I'd consider a little more.
  13. Like the title says I need a good IPS monitor for digital art and graphic design. I need really good color accuracy and good viewing angles. I would consider 1440p if it was an amazing deal but I'm really hoping for 4k. I'm not going to use it for gaming much, if at all, so high refresh rates and low response times really don't matter. I also don't care about G-Sync or Freesync for the same reason. I'm looking for something that's 27 inches or more. The bigger the monitor, the more detail I can work with. I have a really small monitor and borrowing my friend's huge one
  14. I just want to thank everyone for these good responses. They definitely make me less paranoid about buying a monitor. I think I'll take Energycore's advice and start a thread asking for advice on buying a monitor.
