New PC Build... Any help is appreciated.

Recommended Posts

Now the issue is not being able to test components as I get them if I don't get them in the right order. So, next should be the power supply. Agree?

 

I've often thought about getting a PSU tester, but I've heard there are a lot of crappy ones for sale. If anyone knows of a decent one, both for quality and price, please post it.

Most power supply testers do not sufficiently test the unit under load or test the short circuit protection. I would not waste the money on a PSU tester. Just my opinion.

That's pretty much what I figured. It's too bad really. I guess a good one would just cost too much to make.

That is an interesting PSU... fan less option is something I didn't even think of. I will have to look up some reviews. Do you have one these?

Cooler Master, OCZ, etc...kind of hard to go wrong with these guys. I have this unit in my HTPC...no issues whatsoever.

Can't imagine you'll have any problems with that PSU.

      Hi Community,
       
      First, my specs (briefly):
      MicroServer Gen10
      AMD Opteron X3216
      Win Server 2016
      [...]
       
      Problem:
      The Taskmanager shows only 1 CPU-core instead of 2.
      (ref. image 1)
       
      Solutions tried:
      checked msconfig...no CPU-Limit set checked, whether other users see the same amount of CPU-cores in task-manager (ref. image-link (internal) 2)  
      Anyone out there with an idea to solve this?
       
      Greets

      Hi Guys,
       
      New member here, some great info on this forum so hopefully a few of you have experience with the Intel E3-1260L CPU running in a HP Microserver Gen8? 
       
      I know for sure it will work as I’ve seen some good threads on here but can anyone tell me if the upgrade made a noticeable difference in the fan speeds and noise?  
       
      Im looking at putting two Gen8’s in a living room in place of an old N54L so cautious of too much noise..

      Hello! Recently I've been thinking to upgrade the CPU in my HP ProLiant ML10 v2. It currently has a Intel® Pentium® G3240 (I got the model of this server that comes with the Intel® Pentium® G3240) and according to the manual I should be able to upgrade the CPU to a Intel® Xeon® E3-1220v3. Is this true? Do I need to change / get anything else? Thanks.

      Apologies if posted before but a weird one I’m hoping someone can help me figure out (probably bought the wrong ram! 😒)
       
      Stock Gen8 with Celeron G1610T CPU & 4GB RAM (
      Upgraded to
      e3-1256L v2 with 65w HP Heatsink
      Offtek 16GB (2 x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz 2R x8 ECC 
       
      Offtek ram was bought sometime ago and registered fine in bios with the celeron.
       
      Since upgrade of cpu & heatsink - the RAM slot closest to heatsink just doesn’t want to work. Tried swapping ram modules around. Single slots used. The slot furthest away from heatsink seems to work fine with all ram modules.
       
      See pictures of failures and ram used. 
       
      The bios jut seems to loop around at 30% when Any ideas??
