  1. Hello Everyone, When I stumbled upon the Q30 video on ShortCircuit I was shocked by the relative praises these got. Sure, it was a sponsored video, but I trust Linus was not lying. After that I went on a hunt for actual reviews and to my surprise even the in-depth ones showed them as a true budget kings. However looking further I can see a lot of contradicting opinions. Many of them saying that they sound like a complete garbage and have ANC barely working at all. Could someone who actually bought them or maybe someone from LTT crew say what is the truth, or if possible co
  2. Do you know, if it would it allow me to create a Simple space between 1 and 2 TB drives and then set up a Mirror space between 3 TB drive and the 3 TB Simple space?
  3. Hello Everyone, In the near future I'm planning to buy 2x 8TB HDDs and setup them in Raid 1 for redundancy, however I have my 3 old drives 3+2+1 TB, and I was wondering if it's possible to set them up in a way where they're Raid 1 in 3 + (1+2) configuration. Is it even possible? Because I have the space and if I can I would prefer to use them up while getting some redundancy that I'm seriously lacking. Cheers
  4. TBH I'm chasing the numbers a bit. Although in technology the numbers always matter, a bit more, a bit less, but they always matter. After I just spent approx 370 USD on a CPU + MOBO I want to see that it was worth it
  5. If it was my original system, sure, that would be great. But having the comparison I feel ripped off, because I could get my old set (i5-8400 + B360M Pro4) for half the price and apparently I would get better performance out of it.
  6. ADATA XPG GAMMIX D10, DDR4, 16 GB, 2666MHz, CL16 (AX4U266638G16-DBG) which is by luck in QVL for my mobo and it;s running the advertised 2666 on XMP, however I get worse latency then I did with intel without XMP.
  7. I don't want to waste my time on learning about RAM optimization in depth, because I will probably use it 5 times in my entire life I'm not a system integrator after all. If you need to learn about it to use Ryzen properly, then it should be put as a dislaimer on all Ryzen reviews. If it was I would go with Intel again. I was sure that after almost 4 years on the market these issues would be solved and automated for the user.
  8. Sure, but it was easy, with ryzen you have bloody comatibility tables that take into consideration RAM type (single rank/dual rank), processor generation, number of sticks etc. That's sick!
  9. Hello Everyone, I'm writing this post as a bit of a rant, but at the same time I would be grateful for any suggestions you might have for me. Recently I have spilled some tea on my pc (R.I.P.), however fortunately nothing but the motherboard and the CPU died (i5-8400 + B360M Pro4). After the incident, I decided to go, since it's so highly regarded, with Ryzen in my new build (5 3600 + B450 Pro4) and here's where my rant begins. For the first time in a long time, the setup process (from selecting parts to getting a boot) was a pain. It turns out that no
  10. Hi All, Could you reccomend any online co-op games that have that meet below criteria: 1. All players have to be "important" - I don't want a game where the other player is just a support character that doesn't really have anything to do. 2. The game has to have a story. I don't want MMOs or any sandbox games. 3. I would preferably like it to be a game that involves thinking and real co-operation (like Portal or A Way Out) - but it's not like I would reject a cool thought out shooter. 4. I would prefer it to be at least a few hours long. Not a 1-2h experiance.
  11. Would you be so kind as to drop a link to some instructions on how to use it?
  12. Hi Guys, Do you know about any easy way (app) to check speed of internet connection between 2 computers? (for Windows) I can't seem to find anything, and I just refuse to accept the fact that such an app doesn't exists. Thanks in advance
  13. Hi All, I am planning to re-use my old pc as a file server and a Plex server. As far as Plex goes - I don't think there will be any problems. However I am afraid about the file sharing. For now I am planning to use Samba - however in the past I had issues creating an SMB share between my main Win 10 machine as it worked perfectly in the beginning, and after some update it just stopped working. I triple checked everything on my machine and my gf's laptop - SMB was installed, permissions were granted etc. but she just could not connect to my share anymore. For n
  14. Hello Everyone, I am planning on reusing my old PC (i7-3770 + 16GB RAM) for a linux server, that is supposed to work as a plex server and a file server. However for some redundancy, I wanted to have the drives in this type of a "raid" that unraid offers - where you can add different capacity drives and it still manages to survive a drive failure. I have 2x 1TB, 1x 2TB and 1x 3TB drives and I'm planning to add another 3 TB one soon. Do you know of any way to make it work as I want it to, or do I have to buy UnRaid for that? Thanks in advance
