I'm back with a new predicament!
I was also able to play FH5 in lowest/medium quality with no problems

So I got bored this weekend and started setting up a new media server LOL. Now I've ran into hardware limitations.


My new media server is currently running on a Dell 7040 TINY LOL (i5-6500/250gb ssd/8gb ddr4)
My previous media server is on a core2duo (E8400? I need to check, multiple 1TB HDD, 16GB DDR2) I think it was having troubles broadcasting, and it started having fan issues so I left it off.



- The i5-6500 is removeable from the 7040 and I can repurpose this for a new build. A mobo seems to be difficult to find right now.
- My current machine is a i5-4670k so far so good, no complaints about it, but I can repurpose this as well while doing a 12th gen build
- Or I fix up the core2duo machine


Machines are running Ubuntu + Docker and the whole jazz.

Thoughts?

I'd keep the Dell 7040 the way it is, convert your current machine into the media server and then build a new machine.

Q. I just uninstalled a hard drive from my computer

Now I just have a blinking green sb_pwr light

Did I kill my mitherboard/psu from uninstalling a hard drive?

I turned the psu off too when I did so wtf


Edit: realized the blinking heartbeat led is a different led

No, that wouldn't kill a board, but you might've damaged something else in the process.

Yeah first thing I did, but naw

Google results seem to say the sbpwr led only blinks (instead of a solid) if the psu or mb is fkd, and I've tried a different psu, so ig that means

I'm thinking so, but I can't figure out how, the psu was off, maybe I had a static charge on me or something

I just noticed the leds on the lan ports on the back are all blinking too (Amber)

It's really hard to kill your components via static.

What I may want to do is see if anything is loose, sometimes if something is loose it could cause that.

So I went to explore the issue again and.... The sb_pwr led wasn't blinking anymore, it was solid (as normal) and the heartbeat led was on again

And it powered on! Wtf

But still have a problem

Everything powers on, but I just get the bios splash screen and just an immediate blank screen with a blinking underscore _

Can't even enter the bios

So I gotta figure that one out now :/

Usually static damage takes time to actually kill something anyways.

Have you checked the port the HDD was connect to, to make sure a pin didn't get bent or something when you removed the cable?

Haven't been following GPU prices for a while. How much is a used 3080 gigabyte OC? Might sell mine due to not gaming anymore.

Is it the older one or the newer LHR version?

Worth around 2k or more. If you min with it you can make around $250 a month after power.

I WFH and work sent me a prebuilt Alienware PC with pretty high end specs a couple of months back. It has a rtx 3090 in there... is there a way to check if it's LHR?

I know nothing about mining, but it seems kind of tempting since the "tool" is sitting right there... would this be profitable with just 1 gpu or will the net gains be diminished from heavy electricity usage? That being said, I also question it's cooling capabilities... I have the feeling prebuilt AW PC's aren't meant for the OC'ing demographic.

Does your company have an IT department?

I imagine there is some sort of device management system and endpoint security pre-installed on the system. Your miner will probably be flagged right away and someone will be contacting you.

No IT dept. We're a super small firm that just started a couple years ago. I'm literally the second guy they hired, lol. I could basically use this PC as my own personal PC if I wanted to. Nothing's restricted.

But I guess I can never really be sure if there's stuff pre-installed to track everything I do.

you won't know if there is software installed as its all hidden. we have a software installed on all of our clients laptops/desktop that leave the office. the user will not know the software is even isntalled as they won't find it anywhere in the program list or control panel program uninstall list.

take out the 3090 and plug it into another machine to mine when not working, then put it back into the work computer when you need to do work. lol

so how the software works, is it can alert us of any software/hardware changes, it can log everything that is being done on the computer AKA track if you are actually working or not. push out updates to software and OS if needed.

but mainly companys buy it so they can track it if it gets stolen, freeze the drive if users are let go and they try to delete company info, remote wipe the data if it is stolen, and do a continuous wipe if we figure we don't give a fuck about that machine so its render useless to the person who stole it even if they replace the hard drive on it.
