    Code Compilation, Web Server, Game Hosting... Epyc, Threadripper, or Consumer CPU?

    I was definitely hitting a RAM cap on my build server (other services started getting starved of resources), but I seem to recall looking for bottlenecks on my development machine and not finding any obvious ones. HDD vs SSD speeds were severely impacting my code compile times on my development...

    Code Compilation, Web Server, Game Hosting... Epyc, Threadripper, or Consumer CPU?

    Oh, awesome! Thank you so much! I may very well end up going this route to help more evenly distribute the overall workload! Haha yeah, it's really strange. I can definitely confirm that on my 13700k, one line code compile times for UE4 are about ~30 seconds (and that's also using the "Live...

    Booting Poweredge T420 MOBO without control panel?

    Hello, I've been into the PC building scene for about a decade now, but I recently acquired my first server-grade parts: a Dell Poweredge T420 motherboard with 2 xeon processors. Since I only have the motherboard, I don't actually possess the necessary control panel that plugs into the header...
