  1. HP, like Dell, uses non-ATX standard wiring in their systems, so you'd either have to order the HP PSU from the spare parts list, or find a way to determine which wires go where in the PWR connector. And buy or make an adapter for a standard ATX PSU for it. Given the fact you're asking, the latter may not be an option for you.
  2. You should be able to get one of these for under 100USD https://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=976 Add PSU and RAM, some no-name case if you must, usual peripherals and away you go! OK, not exactly (Ry)ZEN, but still better then nothing!
  3. Yeah, wrong video They did a followup later: Still not much, but at least a lot better then their first attempt
  4. Have a go: However, given the current situation, YMMV!
  5. Common sense: their goal is to make as much money from you as they possibly can, hoping they can force you to pay extortionist prices once they've lured you in deep enough you can't go back w/o serious issues (data loss, etc). As for cheap gaming PC, here's one LTT did earlier: As noted previously, given current circumstances: YMMV
  6. Download an image of https://www.system-rescue.org then make a bootable medium with it (either cd-rom, dvd or usb flash disk). Boot your machine from the media you just made, select the graphical boot option, choose the keyboard layout when requested You'll see a terminal, be very careful as it can potentially destroy all of your data! Start the program Gparted, either from the menu or the taskbar. Check carefully which drive is which, note the designation by Gparted (/dev/sdX, X is a lower case letter) In the terminal, type fdisk /dev/sdX (again, X is the lower c
  7. There's probably backups, snapshots or other duplication stuff going on that server, his best bet is to switch those off and delete older versions manually.
  8. Yes, as long as you keep your wits about. Don't use it for high-demand-high-price items, like current gen GPU's as in this case, but more run-of-the-mill stuff is usually fine. I did come across cases where even small, low price items were lost in shipping, but keeping on top of that is fairly easy as Aliexpress has a money-back guarantee within a certain period. Claim your money back within that time and Aliexpress will refund your credit card, usually w/o hassle. Occasionally you'll get a complaint from the seller about being out of pocket, but that's not your problem.
  9. Normally not a problem. But, I may have misinterpreted your question: are you planning a 2nd RAID5 array to copy data to? That works on a different level and as such, RAID levels don't really matter. As long as the 2 remaining drives in your RAID5 are good, your data is still there.
  10. I concur with others, get sound legal advice locally. But as you're in the EU, if you have proof of payment in full, the shop has to honour their obligation to deliver the product at the price you paid. Period. Any price increases by their supplier is their problem, not yours. They made the sale to you at the time and had the product been available, nobody would ever have thought twice about it. In the likely event they then cancel your order, take them to court to force them to upheld your order and supply you the card they allotted you without any further delay. If that means they have to ge
  11. Potentially, yes. If you migrate from RAID5 to RAID6, it's often you'll keep the data, but from your RAID5 to RAID1 or RAID0 JBOD, very likely data will be lost. One other avenue to perseu for you: boot a Linux LiveCD, open a terminal and use the fdisk tool to 'clean' the partition table of the troublesome drive. Let us know if you need guidance here.
  12. Insane. Some doubt if the announcement/rumour is false, there is a chance it is. But I'm also aware that it could well be true as it would make sense for AMD to push the boundaries while Intel is still down, making use of their momentum in the server market. So a 6/10 for credibility IMO. Price-wise, I'd say well above the 10k for the current 7000 series, around the $15-17k (US) I reckon. Gonna be a very popular chip for supercomputing clusters and other virtualisation tasks I think. Can't wait for the server builds from LTT, Level1Techs and STH Particularly Linus op
  13. Yeah, my experiences aren't that good either Eventually, I got a reply (not the one I wanted, but there you go) 3 weeks late. So, YMMV! (it was about one of their workstation/server-stuff products, not some gaming rig, which have a much lower profit margin)
