    What the heck is turbo speed? πŸ˜†

    Edit: I was also going to make a joke about using 4 cores to browse facebook... but given the shenanigans the Facebook app does on Android... maybe you will need all 4 cores 😁

    I am planning to build a NAS server. Any suggestions? Thinking about using a 4U server chassis with hot swap drive bays.

    Sooo... 100% thought that that was a troll... hot swaps... 4U chassis...

    but, then... Genius!

    Look at that thing; hardcore.

  • Eehhh... My NAS solution is a single drive Synology DS112j with a 2TB WD green... For a single core 1.1Ghz... It's slow... I rarely touch it beyond my music library.

    Anyways I did a ton of research on the Xeon cpu. And my question that remains is a odd one. Can it work without a microcode update. That's the only thing I'm scared off.

    Hahaha ah yes, Spotify's holiday playlists... they're actually not bad.

  • 86 posts already?! Anyhow, I've refused to do this. But oh well, here you can see my mess I call a desktop.

    And as a extra, you can see a neat fully OEM Acer server who's worth looking at.

    Don't know what it is with yellow mobos, they always scream "old pc" to me

  • well, since it is. Thats why, its a HP IPIBL-LB Codename Benicia motherboard, it was mostly for desktops back in 2007-2008. And I have to update this outdated junk to support a Xeon CPU, fun stuff ^_^. Hope I don't brick it.

  • For the first time ever I've upgraded my CPU, and microcode... And I am still shaking of fear that it doesn't work, but I'm pleased to announce this!

  • Now to just replace the less then average HDD, RIP main HDD... You have served me well over the years.

    Edit: Perhabs I will retire my old NAS,

  • Hmm so lets revive this old topic, I've gone out today to bike around 19KM to another major city (A good 45 min bike trip, yey for my electric bike breaking half trough that.) for a new headset (It was 80% off and I needed a new one badly) and while I was there I decided to get my self a new CPU cooler, since the stock cooler my OEM machine had wasn't the most perfect solution and would turn my PC into a aircraft in terms of sound from time to time.

    So I settled on a good cheap Cooler Master, this one in fact. After getting home, pulling my system out of its confined space and disconnecting the CPU cooler, cleaning the so overdone Thermal paste of my CPU and refitting it to my socket. To my confusion the the cooler doesn't fit. After 10-20 min of attempting, I gave up in rage and googled (In rage on my phone I might add) why this pin based cooler doesn't fit.

    Now what I didn't notice is that my old cooler had screws, and a screw plate on the back of the motherboard that was attached by duo sided tape. So after (In more rage after finding that out) unscrewing my motherboard and carefully started to try and twist of the plate with a flat screw driver (I don't recommend that at all but it was all I had) I finally got the back plate of, and what do you know... The damn thing popes in it without any effort. (Now to fix my temperature sensor)

    So what are your guy's storeys of horribly failing with technology?

  • @Kowlin hardest cooler I ever installed was an AlpenfΓΆhn. Not only that I had to replace the backplate (which is very easy), I also had to build a "cage" for the actual cooler. In the end it was a Lego massacre taking 45 minutes (3 times longer then for all other parts combined).

    Even worse was the fact that I had to apply the coller with the fan on it and then fix a screw. Luckily I have 30cm long screw drivers for that.

    The easiest cooler I ever applied was my Corsair H110. A dream to install. πŸ˜„
