  1. now that I'm starting to get settled into my new house it has become clear that imma need to build a small budget minded yet semi-powerful camserver for 24/7 overwatch of say 10 cameras. I'm thinking of mini atx or itx with most likiely a new ryzen and modest amounts of ram and storage for the job. I am really getting with the new amd and have loved the x570 tuf but it seems like way overkill for this application.

    so im open to ideas and suggestions for cam and security options if anyone has some thoughts and experience it would be greatly appreciated




  2. good morning  _cow... I was just doing some comparisons of different AMD cards with the intent of possibly taking this newly updated build all the way AMD. I've looked at both of the reviews on here of the xfx 5600 cards, both Ultra and Pro, and i don't see a lot of differences other than HS/Fans and length... I'm guessing they are both 7nm RDNA but will they be able to perform ray tracing ?  like after a firmware upgrade ? Well this is another excellent review and thank you for your videos and other OCC work.

  3. I just installed the Inland performance M.2 Gen 4x4.0 1TB and right away it was seen in bios (this new ASUS X570 TUF w/wifi) but nowhere to be found in Windows. So after googling around I found I needed to go back in and assign a Gen for M.2 PCIe slots and make sure everything was turned on, and that did the trick. It is up and running in the #2 slot. So not totally horrible for my first try at it. I'm planning on the Sabrent Gen 4x4.0 for the #1 slot in a few paychecks, and that comes with the Acronis True Image to make it into my new boot drive.


  4. I was looking at M.2 2280 kits today but I will check into gen 4.0x4 NVMe drives in the morning but I bought a decent corsair h115i platinum cooler today... this cpu 3950x didn't come with a cooler i think because there are soo many different ideas of how to keep a gaming processor cool out there ... but this ought to do the job and I've had sensational results with the Corsair line in the past !


  5. after due diligence and careful consideration i have decided to make a couple of changes to my cart:

    this ram:  https://www.microcenter.com/product/613487/Ripjaws_32GB_2_x_16GB)_DDR4-3600_PC4-28800_CL16_Dual_Channel_Desktop_Memory_Kit_F4-3600C16D-32GVKC_-_Black

    this mobo: https://www.microcenter.com/product/608734/X570_Taichi_AMD_AM4_ATX_Motherboard (this will be my first AS Rock)

    roughly $1,230 at Microcenter and most everything else will remain the same except I may get a new prefab WC loop like Corsair platinum 280mm but this is enough to get started with...

    And a while back i was a winner of an Nvidia TitanXp which I have never put to the test, that has been sitting on my bench ever since it arrived. I know it is a bit outdated these days but i think the time has come to put it in and give it a shot, well since we're gonna be changing things and all... so this should be a decent upgrade !
