Forum Topic "How to balance DPI and Mouse Sensitivity?"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 9 hours ago

Googling the difference gives -

"DPI is resolution, sensitivity is primarily how fast the cursor moves. Higher DPI (dots per inch) means the cursor has a smoother, more accurate feel for pinpointing precise spots, as per in sniping. Higher DPI mice have more increments the LED or laser reads with, a denser scan so to speak."

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 10 hours ago

My mouse, the driver it comes with, can natively go to 18400 DPI and thats what it was initially set to.

that's literally an ipv4. not an IP. Changing which IPv4 the machine uses shouldn't fix this at all

Forum Topic "Portforwarding help?"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 1 month ago

Logged into router via 196.162.1.1 signed in with the default password and fully setup portforwarding on the router. If you think a Router Model # or ISP specified is required I can give that when I get home, but I doubt that really has much to do with anything

Thankyou for the much needed feedback and suggestion and evidence and or reasoning behind it. I'll look deeply into it.

Forum Topic "lf good headset / headphones with good audio quality"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 5 months ago

I already have a setup for what XLR mic I want, I was just asking what headphones I should get for 40$.

Forum Topic "lf good headset / headphones with good audio quality"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 5 months ago

Extremely great noise-canceling / background suppression and no USB connection. XLR cable to audio interface to 3.5mm cable to motherboard.

Plus I figured if I got a good microphone I'd never need to worry about it ever again. Plus I like to record and sing sometimes for fun.

Forum Topic "Will the new intel CPU's be worth it?"

RainOfPain125 1 point 6 months ago

It still seems (To me) that AMD's Ryzen is undeniably better in virtually everything except gaming because of the slight lacking in single-threaded performance.

But IDK about the 9000 series, probably just a plain old refresh that won't bring much.

Most cable boxes do not come with 1080p as that is too much to feed over the cables. My box only comes with 1080i or 720p.

Forum Topic "Threadripper Server Build"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 7 months ago

Game servers. I only need the SSD for the OS and the servers files. The HDD's should be more than enough (They'll be in a RAID so it's actually just 2TB's of backup storage)

I don't need a ton of backup storage because I am only saving the small portion of the server files that contains the server data and player data, while the rest is just the game and doesn't matter if it gets corrupted / can be easily replaced. Thats why I chose not to waste hundreds more on ECC RAM because only a small portion of the data is crucial while the rest is easily replaceable.

Forum Topic "Safe to buy two different kits of RAM?"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 8 months ago

Nah, I'm going to get identical kits, I just want to buy a 4x16GB kit now and upgrade with another 4x16GB kit of the same speeds, CAS, and timings. Should be alright?

Forum Topic "Dedicated server-hosting machine feedback"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 8 months ago

I don't think it'll be worth the extra 700$ for ECC, as I'm just running game servers and only a very small fraction of the data is playerdata - which is the data that matters if something gets corrupted or a bit gets flipped. More than likely (if ever) it'll just corrupt the core server files, which can be instantly replaced with no problems. We also do backups on our playerdata, so even if something in the RAM were to flip and a players loot save were destroyed we could just revert from what it was 30 minutes ago with no problems.

just trying to give some context on what this build is for

Forum Topic "Dedicated server-hosting machine feedback"

RainOfPain125 submitter 2 points 8 months ago

Aren't I supposed to buy RAM in kits so that I know they will work together in dual / quad channel? It seems like the ECC RAM only comes by itself.\

edit: Also buying ECC RAM instead of the cheapest 1x16GB RAM module ( https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tCrmP6/geil-pristine-16gb-1-x-16gb-ddr4-2400-memory-gp416gb2400c16sc )16 times would be effectively 700$ cheaper, and is 1 CAS latency lower. Is it even worth all that extra money on ECC?

Second gen Ryzen doesn't rely on high-speed memory as much as first gen does, so why upgrade the RAM speed?

Thanks for all your replies. I basically summed up your comments as something like a RAID array. The fast drives will just go as fast as the slowest drive.

Forum Topic "How-to move OS between different drives?"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 9 months ago

Well, I already knew how to install windows 10 through the windows media creation tool, though thankyou for showing that video - I didn't know I'd have to do a little extra for an M.2 to be booted up into. Though this doesn't exactly answer my question regarding how I would move over my registry edits, driver installations, custom windows settings, etc from my hard drive to my new M.2 boot drive.

Forum Topic "How-to move OS between different drives?"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 9 months ago

I was hoping to see more of a software approach to this - IE, said software could just copy the type of files I want to copy (system files, drivers, settings and none of my personal files) to the M.2, and then once booted into the M.2 could be used to delete said files off the other drive. - Sorta how the process you're explaining does, except without an external dongle or device to do it for me.

Is there any way? I don't want to copy whats on my hard drive to the M.2, especially since my hard drive is 1TB and is virtually full to the brim and my M.2 SSD is only 500GB.

Forum Topic "Good CPU cooler for Intel - Core i5-8600K"

RainOfPain125 submitter 1 point 9 months ago

I didn't want to overclock. I simply asked for a good all-rounder CPU cooler without the hassle of water-cooling. I completely understand that chipset can't overclock and I am fine with it. I just want my temps to be under 60c in any condition

And the m.2 is definitely necessary. I want to put a MySQL server on it, my OS, one or two games, and my servers on it. Those server files and MySQL have craptons of tiny files, and I know the SATA interface can get in the way, thus I chose to use an m.2 SSD.

Can you suggest a cheap case that may be bigger? All it needs is easy cable management, compartment for PSU, and a side panel. Fans included would be nice aswell.

Forum Topic "Not getting even close to rated speeds"

RainOfPain125 1 point 11 months ago

Is your motherboards built-in ethernet capable of 640 or more speeds? Most motherboards only handle up to 100mbps and require an add-in card that provides 1-10gigabit speeds. In this instance, you'd need a 1gigabit card to reach such speeds.

Forum Topic "Ideal SDD & NVMe Drive setup for PP & AE Video Editing on i9-1940x"

RainOfPain125 1 point 11 months ago

IMO, if you just got a 1TB 970 PRO instead of 1x 500GB 970 PRO and 1x 500GB 860 EVO that would be better

For long-term storage that is on an SSD I wouldn't be so sure, however, I'm sure the 960 is out (or coming out) so you should choose that instead.

Compared to my 1050 - http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1050-vs-AMD-HD-6870/3650vsm7744

Compared to the GPU on that CPU's die - http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-RX-Vega-11-Ryzen-iGPU-vs-AMD-HD-6870/m401440vsm7744

You might as well not even use your 6870's. They're old, power hungry, and using them in dual won't exactly mean 200% performance. Especially if you consider running them dual would produce TONS more heat in your case if you simply never had them in your build, the overall outlook seems to be you should just use the Vega 11 graphics built into your chip.

Nah. I decided not to buy it because well, I didn't have the money.

Doesn't matter, the 970 is coming out soon which will be 30% faster! uwu
