  1. My WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra has failed outside of warranty. I have a currently unused Dell Power Edge T110 II Server with 32GB Ram and Intel Xeon E3-1220 V2 @ 3.1ghz I need about 10TB Raid 1 so (20GB of drives) of Storage that can be accessed by at least 2 users at the same time. My question is would it make more sense to just buy drive quality drives and install some NAS OS on the Dell or replace the WD with another NAS device? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, as well as suggestions for items either way.
  2. it does not show here either
  3. Hello my mobo is GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING X I installed a second M.2 drive and the bios is seeing it properly, however windows disk management will not. I updated the BIOS, toggled Intel Rapid Storage (it did nothing) Any help will be appreciated. Thank you
  4. Some of the prebuilts are available with them 3090s https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Creator-RDY-IWRG205 https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Creator-RDY-LCMBG201 3070 https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Gaming-RDY-SMRIIBG206
  5. I went through iBuyPower, really loved their customer service. They have pre-builts but you can build your own with the new stuff but the availability changes day to day. Also wanted to add, i priced out all the components on my system and if I remember correctly it was only like 150$ extra for assembly.

    My RGB hub/controller fried for some reason, i need to replace it. I have a GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING X which has a 4pin 12v header. All 6 of the RGBs in the case are 3pin. I want to connect it to the mobo header to sync all the LEDs together. Whats the best way to go about this? The original was connected directly to the PSU and a remote. Prefer stuff from amazon or newegg if possible. Thanks in advance.
  7. I dug out an old dongle and disabled the TP-Link adapter, and it works. Unplugged and reenabled and no internet again, so it is something with that card definitely. I kind of shot myself in the foot and didnt realize the motherboard I chose didnt have WiFi until it was too late. Is there a brand of network card that you would recommend?
  8. Yes, the free version should be all you need for this application. Hopefully the linux version is just as easy.
  9. Yes, rebooted and updated the firmware.
  10. VMware should see your windows installation and you can just boot it inside your linux. Thats how it works for me on my Mac and Windows dualboot.
  11. So I have an ASUS RT-AX82U router. WiFi card is TP-Link WiFi 6 AX3000 PCIe WiFi Card (Archer TX3000E) I have 8 devices connected no problem. However, my gaming PC after a restart a few days ago will not fully connect to my WiFi. It will connect but with no internet connection. The weird thing is it will connect normally to my routers Guest Network, with the obvious shortcoming of that. I have tried updating the driver, forgetting the network, checking from the router (it shows as connected and no blocking). Not really sure to what is to blame here. Is it my
  12. Fold it gently in the opposite direction to help flatten it, and then put something heavy on it (textbooks) for a few hours or days if possible
  13. Budget (including currency): 500 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Media Encoding and Some Adobe CS 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): I currently have a Intel I7 8700 with a RX 580 I need to replace my motherboard as some of my SATA ports have died. I was wondering is there any benefit to upgrading to a newer CPU like a Ryzen 5 5600X, or should i just replace my existing mother
  14. Have not, would it still post without the sata 4 pins if the CPU needed reseating? Ill go get some thermal paste and try it though.
  15. Processor: Intel® Core™ i9-9900KF Processor Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING X Memory: 32 GB [16 GB x2] DDR4-3000 Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER - 8GB GDDR6 - MSI VENTUS XS OC (VR-Ready) Primary Hard Drive: 2TB WD Blue SATA SSD So yesterday, my computer just shut down while gaming. After some checking I found the PSU burned out. I got a new PSU and if I only connect the 24 pin and CPU 8 pin and GPU PCIe cables, the computer will POST. However once I connect the rest of the cables to the PSU, a 4pin and SATA, the
