  1. I've already looked through what I need to do for that and tried going through the process but I didn't have any luck. I'm not concerned about a refund or anything like that though in this particular case. I'm really not sure what went wrong. I did find that the SATA connector on the HDD I was booting from was loose, and when I tried to take it out to test which part had failed, the connector broke completely. Maybe that caused something weird? Alternatively, I found out much later that the surge protector it was plugged into wasn't really functioning as a surge protector (frequ
  2. I'm pretty confident it's dead dead, so these are the kind of ideas I'm going for! Got any other creative thoughts? I was thinking maybe attaching it to something as just an accessory, like a bag or something.
  3. I have another build with an identical CPU so I just popped the "bad" one in and that build crashed too. In the build with the bad CPU, I was suspicious that the motherboard may have been what fried it, so I just bought a new motherboard and PSU to be safe. Originally I did go kinda cheap on both of those parts, lesson learned.
  4. I've got a Ryzen 7 3700X that's dead. I've already checked off the possibility of returning it and I have a replacement. I'm not sure what went wrong in it exactly, my system started crashing and after testing every component in a separate build, the CPU was clearly the problem. Is there anything I can do with what is basically a paperweight at the moment? Right now my only plans for it involve practicing removing and soldering pins.
  5. Can you give some kind of starting point? Discussion can go wherever, but what has you interested in learning about servers?
  6. I'm searching but no luck. Suggested keywords? I don't even know what to call the system
  7. To get back to the original topic of the thread, what about a single machine system for a home actually makes it more expensive? Compared to say 4 PCs, each with their own motherboard, cpu, power supply, etc. which components make the single machine system more expensive? I mean ofc the threadripper is expensive, but its like $1200 compared to 4 Ryzen 7 3700Xs at around $300 each, it seems the CPU price is at least comparable. Still more for the single machine since thats 24 cores vs 32, but it doesn't seem like an absurd difference for the cpu at least.
  8. That helps so much. I'll have to read up on it, but you may have just made my workstation obsolete... if I can just use my gaming rig as a workstation from the other room. Though I'm not sure that video calls would work well for that. Still though, that opens a whole new set of possibilities for my rpi4 I didn't even know existed, so Thanks!
  9. It looks like this thread on NAS is for storing movies etc. to harddrives, which is what I was thinking of with NAS. I was more interested in the streaming shows and playing games. I have a similar setup to what you described with my gaming PC upstairs and my TV downstairs, so when I want to watch netflix or other streaming service, I'm stuck using my OLD xbox 360. I actually originally bought the rpi4 for streaming but could never get it working for that on its own, but I never considered using it as an intermediate between my PC. Is this the kind of thing you're talking about?
  10. That sound really interesting, I didn't know rpi could be used for something like that. I don't even know what you would call that though, can you link to any webpage explaining that? I'm sure I can find more from there, but I don't even know what to google to start.
  11. This point has come up again about a NAS server, but I don't really know what use that is. What would people typically use something like this for outside of a business setting?
  12. Would it be possible to freely move core allocations around too? As in, could you set up a system like this where you could easily claim cores for a VM under heavy use from a different VM that is not in use at all? One of my biggest problems with separate devices is that I have a work PC with 8 cores that is often not in use at all, and never in use when I'm gaming. So if feels like I'm always wasting performance since something is always not in use. Thanks for your input, and if after looking at prices its obvious that its much more expensive I may not go this route,
  13. Budget (including currency): Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Will someone please let me know if this is posted under the wrong heading? I recently watched this video from Linus: And it got me thinking about the concept for my own use. This would be at least a few years away so specific hardware may be mor
  14. Some games, especially older games, are designed to only run on a single core or two cores. IIRC the 2700x has 8 cores, but I'm not sure about its single core clock speed. So if a game is very CPU demanding but is a single core game, your other seven cores only serve to ensure background tasks (browsers, discord, etc.) don't interfere with the game since they can run on the cores that aren't running the game. So if your single core clock speed is too slow for the whatever games you're playing (assuming they are single or double core games), then there isn't really much you can do, other than p
  15. I'm using Forge, its the only one I've tried since that's what the Twitch launcher uses. I could be mistaken on this, but from listening to a friend that runs a server I think bukkit is for plugins instead of mods, right?
