  1. If the 'leaked' IP is the one assigned by PIA, you're in the clear.
  2. You'd need a flashed HBA; you can get them off eBay for like 30-50 bucks
  3. I would use them in a software raid 0, is that possible?
  4. So I've noticed that you can get used 2tb SAS drives for around 25 freedom dollars on eBay. I get that these are probably retired 24/7 data center drives; I just want to use them as an intermediary storage on my seedbox. Would it be theoretically possible to get an old enterprise SAS card and have a sort of plug&play experience? I have no clue when it comes to enterprise gear, so any help would be very appreciated.
  5. The Noctua Chromax line is pretty good looking; although they are still bulky. Also, AIOs aren't bad, especially if you can afford one from a good company like Corsair
  6. Follow the overclocking flowchart (link at bottom), don't just take other peoples clocks; you might have worse silicon than they do. https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/3d516w/new_improved_cpu_overclocking_flow_chart/
  7. Read the manual / try finding tutorial on yt.
  8. Definitely the vengeance, speed tends to be more important than the CAS latency. Source: https://www.crucial.com/articles/about-memory/difference-between-speed-and-latency
  9. Yea, 3rd gen ryzen likes fast RAM, I'd recommend it. I think the vengeance stuff at 3600mhz is ~80 freedom dollars here in the US, which should be doable if you go with the 3700x.
  10. Unless your gonna do something that really needs many cores (VMs, Blender, etc), you should probably go with the 3700x. You can use the money to get faster RAM, which would definitely improve performance by a good bit. Might even be able to squeeze in a 2080 with the extra money. The case should be fine; I've never had any complaints with any of their hardware.
  11. Assuming that the AORUS mobo is B450, and has the latest bios, there shouldn't be any problems. You should check with the seller of the mobo to see if the board has been updated recently.
  12. Disable windows defender, and run the windows debloater script from here: https://github.com/Sycnex/Windows10Debloater. If that doesn't work, install gentoo.
  13. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gVgvvW Nothing special ascetics, crap airflow, not-great power supply, slow ram, no ssd, crap mobo, but it should work. If you go with this you should definitely get a 120gb ssd for booting once prices calm down a bit.
