  1. I think you are WAY high on this. From my reading, b550 and x570 uses less than 20w, more around 10 to 15w in both cases.
  2. By stock I mean pbo, not manually oc'd. With pbo on, I never go above 69c with the fans silent.
  3. I run a frost spirit 140 on my 5600x. Way overkill stock, but you can turn the fans way down and go silent.
  4. That really goes against one of his most important points. Power efficiency. Two old xeons are going to guzzle electricity.
  5. Consumer chips and parts are generally just as reliable. (every maker has a lemon product - even server brands) Don't think that because it's not server that it isn't reliable. These days the majority of failures are caused by using something past its limits. So as long as you don't overclock, a stock consumer Intel or amd chip will last just as long as a xeon or epyc. Same for Motherboards, unless you need something server specific like on-board 10g or remote management, consumer sku's are fine.
  6. Wrap a drill bit in cloth, apply polishing compound and go to town. It should take seconds to get it clear.
  7. It depends on how you installed them. Steam makes it easy to move hdd and games without re-downloading, epic is a pain in the ass. Stand alone games with no launcher are on a per game basis. Some work, some dont.
  8. The tomahawk is not exactly expensive. I wouldn't bother replacing.
  9. My Celeron 300a. My friends laughed at me when I first got it. I showed them.
  10. Here's an example of a 5600x box for reference. No sticker,just a plastic cap.
  11. You have that backwards. If there is pre-applied paste, there is usually (never?) a sticker. Think about it. How would a sticker stick to paste? Pasted coolers usually have a plastic cap that would physically prevent installation. Coolers with no paste have a sticker to prevent scratches on the bare metal.
  12. Do you have the isp router in bridge mode?
  13. Two modems? Do you mean routers? Give us more specifics please. What is the exact model of the two boxes.
  14. No, that doesn't count as a second copy. It's still a single copy of the data, but with fault tolerance. Check out Amazon glacier. It's low cost, long term cold storage.
