I tried standard firmware. It didn't flash. LP firmware did. But it's not the same as what it came with. So I was trying to find the exact same one. I am pretty sure it's LPDDR3 or I'm mistaken somewhere. https://mega.nz/#F!8qhRRaYJ!2ZA3VLjvLT6wg0IwsTF27g

Ok...maybe not as qualified as a Dell driver but I've built well over 10,000 PCs and servers, some of which have been or still are in use in some of the most adverse environments in the world, from the top of mountains to military installations. I've seen hundreds of memory-related issues when types have been mixed. The bottom line is if you mix memory you "could" get issues, even today. I'm not saying you will though - there is an important distinction. More fool you if you dispute that.

Oneday77

Define professional? A Dell RTB courier doesn’t quite fit the description. Mixed RAM specs is more likely to cause an issue as it’s using what happened to be laying around. Probably an old poorly stored sore stick or pulled from an inoperable carcass. Even then it’s probably the additional stick might not officially be on the QVL list. Last year Ryzen showed that memory can be finicky. However that was due to poor initial BIOS revisions, not due to the JEDEC standards and protocols.

ToneEQ

Does anyone ever buy direct from Crucial? I use it to check I'm ordering the correct RAM.

It doesn't. You need the 3200 version for that. I don't care at the moment.

jokerevo

so this doesn't have MU-MIMO but does that really matter?

2minutenoodles

Most likely interference. The BT hub isn’t as smart as it says it is, I had a similar issue solved by simply changing the channel in the hub menu manually. Type 192.168.l.254 into a browser and use login info on the back of the router. If you have an Iphone the Apple airport utitility app has a nifty simple trick of checking channels on nearby networks if you have the same channel as one of them it could be the issue. You want to choose a channel that you don’t see as often (or preferably at all) in the list to lessen any interference. There are lots of other ways of checking nearby channels. You may have already tried this step. Hope this helps. Edit: If this doesn’t work then I recommend a full factory reset and if no joy it is probably a hardware issue.

You can easily run it on an i3. As I said above, I'm running it on a Raspberry Pi 3. Just bear in mind the newer gen will be more power efficient.

InDaHouse

Can anyone please advise if an I3 processor or i5 could be ok for PLEX server? There are so many generations of above to choose it’s hard to know where to begin. Would an I5 generation 3 or 4 do? Or an I3 generation 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 do?

Gentle_Giant

Sorry for the late reply, most good fan brands get their fans tested by various people; do a search for low noise fans, and you will find a lot of sites that review and rate them; often divided into sizes and price bands as well. Noctua make some of the best quiet fans, also very reliable, although not the cheapest. You have to balance how much air they move (CFM), against noise (dbl), and RPM. High RPM usually means more noise, but if it is a high CFM, you can run usually it at 50% and it can be very quiet, and yet still push more air than some of the "silent" fans.

buddn07

Is there a way of knowing how quiet a fan is before testing? My current desktop sounds like a 747, but unsure what to replace it with?

Interesting you mention because I got one through a deal you posted a while back and I have to say I'm quite pleased with it. I use it as a Plex Server with 2 external HDs in Raid 1 connected via USB. I obviously don't push it too much so that's probably where the difference is but I'm happy I got it.

Had one of these and it wasn't very good. Overheated due to poor design that requires a hardware mod to fix and SATA port was not very fast. Manufacturer support is also almost non existent. With Gemini Lake boxes being introduced, Apollo lakes will plummet much further than this.

I took the plunge and purchased 2 x 4GB DDR3 from CEX, cost £21.50, as one i ordered off their website, one i had on a local shop, excellent price cheaper than Ebay. Seems to work well so far. And you get a 2 year warranty.

Johnmcl7

I bought a couple of packs of this when it was posted at £90 and running great on an i7-3930K (hex core i7 at 4.2Ghz, no slouch), I was looked at Cex or ebay but the difficulty with ram is that it can be easy to damage it by mishandling but also faulty ram can be a pain to diagnose as the machine may just randomly BSOD, it needs work with memtest to thoroughly test it. Although this isn't the outright cheapest way to get DDR3 ram, I think it's a great price for memory with a proper warranty.

Ive a GIGABYTE GA-MA74GMT-S2 motherboard, does it make much difference what DDR3 1333mhz Ram i buy?

Pro tip: if something doesn’t work, and they can’t test it, they are obligated to refund or replace in full with a working item. It’s part of UK trading law.

thisismyalias

My comment wasn’t directed at anyone in particular, I was just saying there is better ram available for not much more in cost from budget component producers. DDR3 is very outdated so anyone buying this with a DDR4 rig would be stupid. Also £18 for an old manky chip is not a good deal. £22.99 for a 4GB DDR4 is.

blahster

Just had bad experience with CEX. Bought 2 modules of RAM(good price) but one was bad. Went back to the store and they told me that I can only get a voucher to buy something else or to get another module, which they didn't have. But if I get another module I can't return it anymore. They told me I could purchase online but delivery would cost me the price of RAM itself. I'm absolutely sure they didn't test the RAM. They are selling 10600/12600 for desktop PC according their labels, but most of the DIMMs were R or E (registered, buffered, server or workstation compatible only). They agreed to test it in the shop and told me to come back in 10 minutes. I stayed in shop and just watched what's going on. Their tester was some reaaaaly slow guy. He "tested" some graphics card for over 20 minutes - test was: 5 minutes unscrewing and old VC, 5 minutes trying to put the new one(flashing with phone as it's quite dark), another 5 screwing the new one, 2 minutes to boot the system and to see it's working??? and another 5 to unscrew it. They don't test anything. So I was watching at my bad memory laying around, tester was preparing to "test" another VC and I told the guy who ask me to come in 10 what's with my memory. He asked the fast guy and he replayed something, took the memory, look at it and return it back over the note they give with it and wrote PASS, working. The seller called me(I'm watching all) and told me the memory is working. I told him that I was there all the time and tester didn't put it into the machine and he just wrote PASS. Then they told me - if it's here they tested it (somewhere), and in their shop they don't have proper PC to test it. TL;DR CEX sold me bad memory that I could return only for a voucher and if I get another memory(that also could be bad), I can't return it the second time.

BlockHeads

I think Its a mixture of 0 hour contracts and poor staff turnover that result in such poor service that makes em not give a hell, in my local store every 1-3 weeks there will be almost a new crew of staff all the time, there are a few older workers who are nice enough (maybe they have accepted their fates? :/ ) but for the general worker being on 0-8 hours a week on minimum wage having to serve almost non-stop, I can understand why their so dead eyed. Atleast they can wear their own clothes...which most of the time looks scruffy... Also I agree with your stance on purchases, I bought a wii and 4 controllers and 4 nunchucks, the console and 2 controllers were the only thing that worked, since then I only buy games and dvds to build the collection.

Yeah, when I first started using a PC in 1997/8, I can remember being told that it was roughly £1 per MB after earthquakes in the major RAM manufacturing region of the far east. That would be a whopping £16,000ish, would it not for 16GB of RAM that is common place in most desktops these days? (shock) I dare say laptop RAM would have been even more expensive.

Like Stimpington said - RAM is an extremely low risk purchase, easily tested, and eBay will protect you if you receive a faulty item. This is not like buying a used motherboard or PSU where potential issues may be non-evident and/or ruin your whole rig. I too think this is a good deal for new RAM, though (which is why I upvoted it).

deleted412337

Used from eBay, 100% represents the probability that you will get a full refund if the item arrives broken or fails within 30 days of purchase. Brand New, 100% is the guarantee you will get a refund or replacement within 12 months. Neither option offers 100% guarantee that the item will work on arrival. If you like to gamble high and live dangerously on eBay you can do better than RAM sticks, which as a general rule have decent longevity and are physically more robust compared to graphics cards, HDDs etc, therefore far less prone to damage during transit/extraction from a motherboard. So, if the RAM works when it arrives, chances are it will work 12 months later. But everything's a roll of the dice..

Robert_Thomas

Yeah but the big word there is “used” not new like the advert is. Does used come with a warranty and can you tell me that it’s going to work 100%

I know, I upgraded my PC a couple of years ago for VR but decided against putting more ram in at the time as it was running fine without it.

I'm having problems with mine as I can't get chrome to run on it, I get the message "you'll need a new app to open this ms-wpc". Any ideas?

Kyouken

So the replacement finally arrived a couple of days ago. It was swapped out at no cost to use after sending some pictures and a description. The replacement is in a different league and is what I would consider to be grade 1 and is like the pictures above, including the PSU. There is one thing to note which no one has mentioned before and that is they put a sticker on the lid of the case which makes it look in much better condition. I have no idea how bad it is under the sticker but i can imagine how bad the first one must have been. What concerns me is that the sticker is obvisouly going to wear and scratch easily and start coming off. overall though I can accept that given the good condition of the rest of it.

Kyouken

I will update this when the replacement comes.

Thanks for this! Would never have guessed myself. Glad to see there's space for 2.5'' drive inside so i've installed an SSD there and currently cloning the existing drive over. Also looks like it's a standard processor and not soldered to the board. Will have to look into upgrading at some point. CPU-Z stated a free dimm slot but that isn't the case. Only 1 on the board. But there's a mini pci-e card slot free so going to add in a wifi/bt card once it arrives. Hopefully the SSD fixes the issue i've been having because it's a lovely machine otherwise.

You are correct. The FX-8320 does bottleneck a GTX1060 3GB. Two of my friends own this combo and we tested in 5 games we play together. Best example: GW2, max settings, town area (a lot of players).

Feel bad with some of it lol. Picked up a Benq 23" LED 1080p monitor for a tenner off a guy on facebook. Noones interested in monitors after laptops and tablets took over, always tons of them for sale for buttons

This is very obviously a PC built from old stock with a 1060 shoved in, I'm a fan of AMD FX chips - at the right price, but this isn't it. My son's FX 8320 is already a bottleneck for the 280x he has in some games, I doubt the 1060 in this will be able to reach its full performance in running on such an old chip - remember that the FX 8300 in this "new" PC was manufactured 5-6 years ago! If you must have a prebuilt wait for the right deal with a Ryzen or recent Intel CPU, or ask around friends and family to see if anyone can help you with building one from scratch.

i3 8100, windforce 1060 3gb, 8gb 2400mhz ddr4, better case, psu and hdd for £586. Have to build it yourself and wait for parts, but should be a lot better system, low end pcs are rubbish to buy anyway, need to be upgraded soon and the step up to better parts is quite cheap in retrospect.
