  1. A first possible solution could be to make a simple unraid server (which gives user accessibility and isn't too tricky to work with and do stuff with) or other linux distro, and use any kind of VPN tunneling to bring server's share to users. For the exact VPN piece of software, Wireguard, OpenVPN, OpenConnectServer, options are many, and every of these are available either as plugin or docker container, or both. This would allow remote access to company data without having to go through too much security hardening. Without going proprietary and all, just having to ask people to ins
  2. External storage wouldn't be great, Slower in transfer and seek times, and less reliable in average because exposed. Best thing to do is just to have SSD + HDD inside, SSD for OS and software, HDD for some user folders like My Documents, Downloads and Videos.
  3. ^ agreed. That motherboard is basically electronic waste even brand new. Though unlike what Jumballi said, you shouldn't really have issue with upgrading it, it's all standard components in there, no OEM proprietary stuff. But PcPartpicker already advise automatically a superior config for just a bit more money as the homepage "Modest AMD Gaming Build", so it would be a bit sad to go for this prebuilt. PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/HxWp3t CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Newegg) Mot
  4. My call would be to wait for a bit more budget to get on a more modern platform. Anno, Assassin's creed ect, even though they are well optimized to multi-threading, aren't still just video renders, and in maybe an other 100$, you could transition to a Zen2 motherboard for a Ryzen 3xxx or next-gen 4xxxx CPU, with more throughput per core and the same amount of threads, and same amount of ram. Imo a good investment since you're already almost maxed out your actual platform. Keep in mind also that xeon cpus and motherboards, and compatible ram still retained interrest
  5. So, you do manage to get to POST with else the GPU out, or with a single stick of ram. When you started with both sticks and no GPU, it managed to boot the OS before crashing. When you started without 1 stick and without GPU, you say you were able to access bios, but that's it. No drive showing? For now, it's hard starting to build up a theory... Knowing that the Machine-check exception is usually linked to an hardware uncorrectable error, sounds like the RAM might be the one causing the issue. Since integrated graphics are a thing on the 9700K, and that it uses RAM as VR
  6. Yeah first step was to check connections. EPS connector, GPU power, ect. Verify that the 24-pin is deeply shoved in both ends and it should be. If that's checked... well sounds like either PSU issue, Motherboard issue, or an unlikely braindead CPU. The first "swaparoony" test I'ld advise would be to jerry rig an other PSU (aka: disconnect every cable from the RM850x, take an other PSU, jank-plug all the cable in, not aiming at doing it tidy, just to check if you POST with feeding your rig with an other PSU.) Typically if it was a ram or CPU issue, even if it doesn't boot
  7. Well it does sound like you RAM is flipping you the bird. Also, I don't think performance is that important over shear stability. See if the issue is still there at lower RAM speed with a memtest64, but trying out with an other RAM kit to check if the BSOD issue is still there would be the better way to go... EVEN if you have to try it with a low speed DDR4 kit. I'ld defo trade few fps for just not crashing in the middle of something, and I hope you realize you would too.
  8. Monolith, da stealth box. Compute part: CPU: Ryzen 3900X MB: Asus X570 ACE pro RAM: 4x 16GB 3600mhz CAS 16 GSKILL neo GPU: XFX 5700XT THICC III PSU: Seasonic FOCUS PX-750 80PLUS Cablemod set for GPU, ATX and CPU power, with a 24-pin right angle connector and 2x U-turns 8-pins.

  9. For the redundancy: - Raid1 is the "simplest" kind, but with such large capacity drive, rebuild time would be a real hassle in case of one of the two mirrored drives going down. You would need 2 of the same capacity drives. For raid 10, you would need 4, to end with the capacity of 2. - Raid6 could be an interesting alternative. Using smaller capacity drives (thus smaller rebuild times) , but in higher count, while keeping fault tolerance. There is also a performance advantage to it. For the counts and capacity, Raid 6 asks for a minimum of 4 disks, but it's not interesting w
  10. supplementary information: It's 2 pins connectors. The UPS doesn't care about the RPM nor about managing it, I guess the voltages it sends are all hardcoded for the stockfans. They are 12V DC, so it shouldn't be too much issue to use regular PC fans, outside of having to mangle out the extra 1 or 2 leads from the connector. So the question really is, aside of NF-A8s, what other fan should I consider in the optic of silence while needing it to not blow up under load. EDIT: You can basically ignore this post if you come accross it, ended up doing i
  11. My view on this is that you could cheap a bit on the keyboard, eventually the mouse, you can find better NVME SSD than your sataIII one for the same price, and that you can defo buy a windows liscence key for 20bucks on amazon. And from sparing a bit of money here and there, it would be then worth getting a 3rd gen ryzen. Better single thread performance, and more threads, both better for editing, streaming and gaming. Also, if you plan to edit/game seriously, 75hrz with meh colors, not the best for gaming nor editing. At least it's IPS, so better colors than TN for editing I assume,
  12. That's not the kind of builds I usually would feel comfortable giving advices on (I'm more into refurb servers for virtualization and gaming PCs / editing-cad-3D workstations.) THOUGH, even if storage isn't your priority at all, I would give some thoughts about it: - redundancy. Even if storage isn't your priority, if a drive has an issue, ESPECIALLY since you said >REMOTE< solving, you don't want your stuff going down (even in general). A RAID1 or any kind of software mirroring with fail-over that would be still bootable-usable in case of one of the two goes down.
  13. Side note: no, it's not that oversized for my use. Are to be plugged into it: - a R720 with 2x 10 core xeon 115w TDP, 6 drives and a 150W GPU and around as much in other PCIe-cards, including a 10Gbps SFP+ card - a R420 with 2x 6core cpus and a GPU with 10Gbps SFP+ card - a R210ii with 10Gbps SFP+ card - Ryzen 9 3900X + R 5700XT+10Gbps SFP+ card - Z600 with 2 X5500 xeons and 4 addon cards - 21:9 29inches screen 32W - 4:3 20inches Acer L2012 - fiber router and crappy temporary switch Side note²: the 3D printer will eventually get plugged into too if it can hand
  14. Hi everyone I used to make overly long intro posts, I'll keep it simple this time. PS2200RT2-230E, 2U rackmounted 2200VA ups, 50-55DB at idle in a noise floor 40DB room (with other stuff running, but without a server I'm willing to silence too later.) . Basically I need to divide by 2 the noise it emits. To come: 3D printer incoming, and I'm working on a TPU mesh gcode for the front of my rack. Understand my desperation in 25m², with that thing next to my bed-sofa. What I would like advices on, since I have a 12months warranty on that thing so I would prefe
  15. End of story: It couldn't wait anymore, my old refurbed kitchen furniture wasn't holding the weight anymore: And I ended up going for a 4 post 15U open frame that at least I'm sure wasn't advertised wrongly about the deph. Found my sweet post, 26inchs setting (it can go from 24 to 31 in depth), and go for a flush R720's butt, so I can push the thing against the wall. And that poor thing found its place in the jank den. With around 90kg (~200lb) load inside the rack, and a good 20kg (~44lb) more on top. I was just done building you, but this is your life now.
