  1. RGB RAM Worth it?

    Thankfully I got it right before the price surge, I wouldn't get it at this moment, maybe after price goes down again. But yeah, it helps with your color scheme.
  2. RGB RAM Worth it?

    Thanks for the comment. This thread is a year old though. I got the Corsair Vengeance Rgb.
  3. Good used server for Plex and storage

    That's very good info. So I want a Plex server but also a regular storage server for all my computers. Would the consumer grade still be better for that application? I want to unify my music, pictures and videos into 1. And then use the pool for my Plex.
  4. Good used server for Plex and storage

    That's what I needed. Thank you.
  5. Good used server for Plex and storage

    I was thinking on using Raid 5,in case 1 drive fails there's parity. According to this, it says "FreeNAS requires 8 GB of RAM for the base configuration. If you are using plugins and/or jails, 12 GB is a better starting point. There's a lot of advice about how RAM hungry ZFS is, how it requires massive amounts of RAM, an oft quoted number is 1GB RAM per TB of storage..." And which Optiplex are you talking about? The R710? Because I read that only accepts 2TB Drives as highest.
  6. Good used server for Plex and storage

    So, starting with, that's the same price for a dual, 4 core 8 thread xeon, 24GB Ram R710. Second, shouldn't I get Server rated Drives like WD Reds? Also, I thought for Plex you 1GB ram for every TB you want to use. And I want a system that takes Drives bigger than 2TB, since there's limited real estate. If I only have 6 slots and I populate with 2TB I only get 12TB total, and if I want any type of Raid, that would go down, if I can use bigger Drives, let's say 4TB, what would make it 24TB, which with redundancy, I can have 12YB but backed up.
  7. Good used server for Plex and storage

    My question is how do I know which ones can handle more than 2TB HDDs.
  8. Hey everyone, so I want to get a used server for a home NAS for storage and Plex. I was looking into the Dell R710 but I saw that they only accept HDD up to 2TB. Is there any equivalent that I can get cheap that will take at least 4TB? Thank you all for the suggestions!
  9. Using an SD card in phone

    I was reading about that and I've found that Samsung doesn't allow Adaptive Storage yet. Didn't have it in the S8 and doesn't have it in the S9 either. So I guess I won't use the SD.
  10. Using an SD card in phone

    Yeah, that pain is the one I'm trying to stay away. I replace my phone every year and with an SD I would have to be worrying about what's in there, backing everything up twice. Making sure it's ready for the new phone and stuff like that. Whereas right now, I just back up my pictures and that's it.
  11. Using an SD card in phone

    I got the Galaxy S9+. I can't find anything on the interwebs.
  12. Using an SD card in phone

    Hey everyone, I wanted to get some opinions. I just got my new phone and I am debating about using an SD or not. I've never really had a problem emptying my phone's storage if it's getting full. I just wanted to ask from experience how it works. If I add the SD, does the phone just adds it to the pool memory like RAID 0 or does it uses it as a secondary Storage? Like having separate multiple HDDs? Thanks for the comments!
  13. Hey everyone, so I just bought a ASUS 10.1” Transformer Mini T102HA-D4-GR tablet and it comes with windows 10, my dilemma is if I should run my programs as a desktop .exe (download and install full version) or if I should use apps from the Windows Store since it's more of a "mobile" device? I've seen it get 100% CPU and Memory when running YouTube on Chrome, so I don't know if I should download the YouTube app instead? Thank for the advice!
  14. Are both the in and outlet on the same side? Like, both at the bottom or top? Because you should do different ends of the Radiator so the water can flow, if you have them side to side, the water just comes out of one and into the other without going through the radiator, thus being unable to cool itself.
  15. Laptop or Tablet?

    Not really minimum specs. Just something that will run smoothly with my needs and 1080p if it's a laptop.
