  1. optiplexs went up in value because of all those videos about the optiplex being good for gaming but something like the hp compaq 8300 which has a 3rd gen i7 is really good and a lot cheaper
  2. that cost a lot more money to do than a case swap for a perfectly functional pc, thats $100 vs $1000 or higher
  3. who knows but rgb if everything else is rgb then who really cares if the fans are or are not rgb
  4. arctic p12 5 pack and save the 5th for another project
  5. Honestly if I was in the same situation (btw i have the exact same case in the blackout variant) what I would do is just keep the define r5 and if anything just take a file to the side of the server rack where each u screws in since it seems that its just rubbing enough to wear off the paint on the case.
  6. This is me with my first gpu cpu and motherboard, even the hard drive even though i spun that little guy into his grave but I plan to use all my original parts until they are dead except my psu which i plan to replace before then. But everything is there all the memories, all the time i spent on it and all id have to do is reconnect everything since im still using my orignal case, psu, ram, etc itd all feel the same. But at the same time ive considered selling all my original parts to my close friends so that they too can enjoy gaming for the first time but I am still on the fence.
  7. that might be possible try unplugging your spare drives and leave just the ssd then see if the problem persists
  8. yes memory management can be both storage or memory. you can also check your virtual memory limit in windows since too low or too high can cause bsod but in my case when i was having the same issue it was simply a sata cable
  9. ive never used one personally but they are known in the mining community for melting mining rigs. If you wanted a good cheap psu for mining get a used server psu a breakout board and a pico unit for the mobo/cpu
  10. did you look to see if everything is plugged in correctly and cables are pushed in all the way
  11. when i was having this issue with my xeon i tried playing with the ram and in the end it ended up being a bad sata cable so that might also be a place to check.
  12. the super flower is out my price range im trying to spend under 90 or less max since i want to buy more storage as well
  13. i want 650w since my pc currently should have 550 but i have some stuff taken out and undervolted to save power since ive only got 500 and i would like to eventually upgrade some more
  14. the b5 is in low priority but tier b low priority so it might be fine since my pc is "mid tier"
