>he uses the red circular mouse mover
Literally why? It's not any better than using the pad. In fact, it's more difficult because the "learning curve" it has. It takes a while to get used to, and when you finally master it you realize you literally wasted your time using it because the mouse pad is much more convenient to use since you still have to doubletap/click

I don't know anyone who uses this, despite setting a ton of people up with Thinkpads and Elitebooks.

I usually market it as a "backup," if the touchpad dies. Essentially, something that will let them continue to use the computer until they can get it in for repairs.

>>
>>62043692
The Taichi is the best bang-for-buck when it comes to overclocking, since it's got an excellent VRM setup compared to other boards in its pricing range. However, those overkill VRMs are really only needed for super heavy OCs on the 8-core chips.

Basic rule of thumb is to avoid the MSI boards, as well as B350 boards, because the VRM solution is fucking trash (unless you're going budget quad).

What do you mean by optimize?
Have it be SIMD so you can close in faster for small arrays?
Are you doing some funky memory ordering to have the array sorted but non-linearly in for cache-line efficiency?

I'm thinking about buying an SSD just to install a few games on (I'm sick of 7 minute load times in Warhammer Total War and with the sequel on the horizon it's a tempting proposition). I'm tech-illiterate so I basically have no background knowledge whatsoever, and a friend recommended buying two smaller drives and setting them up in a raid 0 configuration. He says this is faster than one large drive. I've done some cursory research and most of the sources I've seen claim it's not worth the hassle and potential risk, however they're all between 1 and 3 years old so perhaps things have changed since then. Should I use the dual-drive setup or just buy one, and which drive would you recommend? I'm leaning towards the Samsung 850 EVO, which appears to be popular and very well reviewed.
I'd be buying either two 250gb drives or a single 500.

I would recommend avoiding raid , normal ssd speeds would be plenty fast since you just want to game .

i would reccomend a samsung ssd but that's only because it's what i use and i know they worked for me .

this is a good one

Don't use raid its not worth the headache, risk, and extra cost. Yes it's faster but if you don't know what you're doing, just don't. A Single SSD will work just fine for you. Buy a 500GB drive and don't cheap out. I use a crucial MX300 but an 850 EVO is also just fine.

Alright /g/entleman, here's my master plan. I desperately need a backup server. I don't have the funds to drop $7k on a proper build, so I'm doing it the poor man's way.

Mediasonic ProBox 8 Bay = $270
6x x 3TB @ $54 = $324
cheap SSD = $90
--------------------------
total=$684

Server is Synology DS216j from a few years ago. I'm going to put some headless linux distro which supports ZFS on it. The probox will connect to the Synology via USB3.
This is all JBOD. I do not need performance.

The server is going to be attached to my router, and I'll access it from my desktop via local network. It will all be encrypted with VeraCrypt.

Any major flaws in this?

>>62042689
Use dm-crypt or LUKS.
Vera is unnecessary and doesn't integrate well.

If you grow out your beard you can run a ZFS root and discard the value and single point of failure of the SSD.
>>
>>62042725
>Use dm-crypt or LUKS.
I mostly picked Vera because it's what I'm using on Windows, but I guess it doesn't matter as long as it's encrypted.

>If you grow out your beard you can run a ZFS root and discard the value and single point of failure of the SSD.
I'm not sure I know what you're talking about.

Why would the SSD be a point of failure?

if you're on linux, async model is kinda wankery, since there's no actual async kernel model for sockets or non-raw FSs.

reactor model (usually based of epoll) is a more natural model there.

Wait so if I'm getting you right Asio is supposed to be making asynchronous servings of the site with different users coming on?
