Looking to unload my mATX AM3+ board. It served me great as part of my gaming rig and in my media server after that. At one point it had my Phenom 955BE at 4GHZ stable for well over a year. Definitely a solid board. You'd be hard pressed to find another mATX AM3+ board with all the same features. One big reason I picked this up is for Crossfire in a mATX form factor. I'm looking for $65+ shipping to CON48. I have heatware @ bb12489 and also my trader rep here.
Honestly between an i5 and a Phenom....I won't notice a difference either in general computing tasks or for use in an HTPC. Who the hell cares if the i5 is faster in benchmarks and real world applications at that point. I'd much rather spend the $90 instead of $300 for an HTPC.
Plex Media Server is definitely cross-platform. The media server portion can be installed on Windows, Mac, Linux/BSD, or even directly to certain NAS boxes. There is also a Windows 8 plex app that would work great for your wifes surface pro, but you can always access Plex through a web browser as well. Also since the Kindle Fire is Android, you can download the Plex app from the Play Store or Amazon App Store. If you have a lot of different devices that will be accessing...
1. I know not a lot of people on here talk about it, but check out StableBit Drive Pool. It's what I'm currently using at the moment for my 10.4TB pool of drives. It uses data duplication for redundancy, and has a lot of configurable options. It's also very easy to setup. The best part about it is that you don't have to have Windows Server OS to run it. It will work fine on Windows 7 or 8 as well. Windows 8 actually has a storage pool solution built in called Storage...
This is a post I thought I would never see a year ago....totally agree though. Can't understand all the hate towards 8/8.1. I always thought it was funny when people said the desktop was "gone" in 8, yet all I had to do was hit the Windows key and there it was
So I'm finally to the point where I am expanding on the capabilities of my server. I came across a deal on a nice Supermicro board with two Xeon E5530's that I couldn't pass up. This will give me 16 threads to work with. Now I'm at a cross roads on what to do here. My current server setup has been very simple. Basically just Windows Home Server 2011 with StableBit Drive Pool for storage. Then running any other miscellaneous services like Sabnzbd, Couchpotato, Plex, etc....
I own a G2 as well on VZW. If your G2 is currently rooted, then it's actually very easy to get it on to KitKat from 4.2. I believe there is a tool someone created that does all the magic for you! No need to unroot and flash stock. Mostly what is entailed is updating your recovery, boot stack, and baseband so that KitKat roms are compatible and that you still have a Lokied bootloader.My vote definitely goes to CloudyFlex 2.2 rom for the G2. I've always loved CM 11, but this...
They were moving in the right direction with the Nexus program. Then another step with the Google Play Edition phones, although those come at a hefty price. I don't think we will ever truly see an end to the fragmentation problem. After all the point of android and open source is to make it your own and give you choice right?. Stock Android is great, but carriers lagging behind with Androids updates is not great. Lets get everyone on the same page with updates, then tackle...
It clears the heatsink by just a hair I'd have to say. You might have a bit more trouble with taller sticks. It's hard to say really. There is a little bit of play with how you can position the heatsink.
As requested. The RAM has very little clearance issues with the Kozuti and the Asrock board.
