Servers / Mac Pro Tower 1,1 Something Old into Something New
« on: October 31, 2017, 12:54:35 PM »
Got a Mac Pro A1186 / 1,1 this weekend and think it would make for great project and a nice thing to put all the mac pro guides into one place.

Plans for the Mac "Not so" Pro are:
-Bios upgrade from 1,1 to 2,1 (better cpu compatibility)
-Dual quad-cores, one of the guys I work with has a bunch of the 2.66ghz x5355's so those should do nicely (Currently the system is running dual x5150 dual cores)
-16GB DDR2 FDimm upgrade or 32gb if I can get a second riser super cheap (think there is currently like 2GB in the rig)
-OSX El Capitan as well as windows 10 pro 64
-HDD Upgrade as right now it has nothing haha, 2x120gb SSD's and 2 1TB or whatever I have in my spare box with half on windows half on osx
-Upgrade the GPU and go over ATI/AMD Flashing tool for EFI vBios currently, I have a few 4870's so might throw one in or go all out with something like a GTX 680 using Nvidias tools, current system gpu is a GT 7300.

Plan to test the system as is on a few benchmarks and put windows on bootcamp and do the same to get a baseline.

Also plan to do everything in stages to cover what benefits each upgrade provides, where possible

Once this is complete I will start the upgrade and build Vlog.

The BlazeTorch is an awesome tool for anyone, Price update is $1699 but even at that price, it is perfect for anyone in search in rescue or into anything active at night.

In our testing we found the BlazeTorch to be extremely comfortable and Blaze also offers a Glasses insert for anyone with Glasses.

Only big complaint is the MicroSD slot seems was a little annoying to work with but other than that it is a great unit and was far more fun than expected to test.

On the bench today we have the Ballistix Elite 32GB 3466 DDR4 Kit

The Ballistix Elite DDR4-3466 may cost a pretty penny but if you can afford the asking price – which is actually better than most for this class – they easily justify the cost of entry into this elite world of no compromise solutions.

Congrats on the new home, yes packing and moving so much fun NOT..

Yea I agree the .17HMR is great round. Fun.

Thanks really looking forward to the move being done and never having to deal with a landlord again,

Laughing my ass off, Tell my boss there is an issue with the ticketing system at work and that some kinds or tickets do not send emails to the clients when we reply to them, he argues that it is not possible if one type works they all work. So he goes into the logs and BAM!!!! a bigger issue than what I stated. so now he is losing it on the Dev team. Also got an apology it was more like a Rick from Rick and Morty apology but I'll take it haha

Plus by wife turns 30 today, no longer am I the only old one in the house :P

Why, MSI? Looks like a shitty Xbone controller

HAHA I was thinking the same if it is cheap enough it will have a market but if it costs more then a xbone one then it will not sell at all

News / Intel’s New 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPUs Due out Tomorrow
« on: October 04, 2017, 07:33:00 AM »
Today our Newest Content Creator makes his debut, Dave will be assisting with news at RHR so make sure to give him a warm welcome. He is also the creator of many of the Avatars and art work on RHR as well as some upcoming shirts and accessories we hope to have out around xmas time.

Dave goes by the name Eyetrance on the forums so make sure to say hi and give him and praises or advice you have.

Intel’s latest 8th generation Coffee Lake Core processors drops on October 5. They will differ from previous generations by including more cores. The Core i5 and i7 will feature six cores (previously only four; i7 will still have hyperthreading), and the Core i3 will have four cores (previously two cores with hyperthreading). The Coffee Lake CPUs are built on a 14nm++ process. Comparatively to Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake offers higher cache sizes but lower base clocks. However, the single-core max frequencies are higher. The TDP is also higher.

Coffee Lake

Very interesting. A soundproof room would be great. Out of curiousity where do the resonating chambers go? I know exactly what they do, but haven't heard of them in house before.

They are run between the drywall and studs and held on with sound dampening clips. When I pick them up I'll explain more on the video haha.
