Raid 10

No.60057504 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
All right /g.
I have 4 2tb drives in my possesion. I have a lot of files that I want to have redundancy for, so I was thinking about setting a raid10 with the 4 of them, running the OS from a separate ssd. I also have 3tb of external drives to have an offline backup.

My question is the following: What happens when one of the drives fails? I mean, I know that the raid can be fixed just by adding a new drive, but the thing is, does some short of notice pop up? Is it just a matter of unplugging the failing drive and plugging in a new one or is there any short of configuration to do?

Also, I would be using the onboard raid controller of my z270 tomahawk from MSI. Is there a substancial reason to get a raid card or will the onboard controller be enough for fairly low workloads?

I have an old Ultra 60 taking up space in my home office.

What should I do with it?

Why is /g/ so cheap and hostile towards paying a small amount to software developers?

Listen fags, I understand not paying $120 for Windows because Microsoft is an evil Jewish company, but are you really going to get upset if some guy who creates a small business out of an app asks for a dollar for an ad-free app with (sometimes) more features?

Pirating media is totally ok because its just video and audio files that are distributed through volunteer networks. Nobody actually works on improving them after a customer buys them, so they are fair game. Software however, is a completely different thing. You use software all the time instead of viewing it once or twice, and the developer actually pushes updates to fix it and add more value.

When did /g/ get so hostile to independent devs who actually work on a useful piece of software to make it better even after you buy it with the change in your couch cushions?

Even if you don't believe in paying for closed source apps, you should donate to open source development. If everybody on /g/ donated a dollar to every piece of open source software they use, open source software would be in a much better position today.

Intel Coffee Lake S 6 Core Desktop Processor Leaked, Core i5 Without Hyper Threading

No.60050293 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

"The first processor I think most users would be interested to learn about is the Coffee Lake S 6 core part. This is Intel’s first 6 core, mainstream and consumer oriented processor. The processor carries some very interesting specifications. First of all, it’s a 6 core part that features no hyper-threading. It comes with 3.5 GHz base clock and no turbo boost speed is mentioned. My guess is that we are looking at a engineering sample and final chip will ship with higher clock speeds."

heatsink paste suction damage cpu?

No.60045589 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
put my heatsink on wrong (thermal paste beading out the sides) and it took a lot of rocking/twisting/pulling to pry it off the cpu. Has me worried. What kind of pull force can the socket and the metal lid on the processor withstand?

The 4K XPS 9560.

I do graphic design & web development.
I used to game a lot, but now not so much, and I'm ok with medium settings long term. Wish I could test out VR though.
I also want it portable and with a long battery life ( I tend to move around a lot ).

Is it right for me ? Do I pull the trigger ?
