I had my computer randomly shut down sometimes because I had one of the bad GTX 1080s that literally would spontaneously catch on fire

OK, yanked the card, made sure it was cleaned. Also noted that the cabled from the board to the fan looked like it was still attached. Put it back in, plugged it back in and... fans still no worky.

Although, I was able to run the radeon app this time and configured the fans. While it changed the setting, the fans didn't run, confirmed both with my eyes as well as the "0 rpm" indicated by the program.

Yeah, that's not good. As LR said, fans or card have gone bad.

The only thing I can think of is maybe reinstall the driver? But it does sound like a hardware problem.

Ok, gonna see what the response to my ticket is. Card is still in warranty, so maybe I'll dig up my old gpu in the mean time.

If it's still in warranty might as well send it back!

So, here is the response I received. Looks like I have the option of installing the new cooler myself, or sending the card back and letting them fix it. I'm sure I could handle it, but am wondering if I should? If something else is wrong, they could claim that it is something I did while installing the cooler, right? Thoughts?

Thank you for contacting XFX Technical Support. We're very sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with our product. Would you be interested in a replacement cooler for the card or would you rather an RMA.This will require verifying the product is under warranty. All that is needed to replace the cooler is a Phillips screwdriver and thermal paste. Video cards use the same thermal paste as your CPU does. You will need to be careful when replacing it. Any accidental damage would not be covered under warranty. If you are not comfortable replacing the cooler yourself and you are under warranty, we can offer you to send the unit into us for servicing. Let us know what you would like to do. If you would like us to send you a replacement cooler please fill in these fields:

I've put together a couple PCs, and I still don't like to bone with the processor. One of those things that's better for someone else to screw up, ya know? But then I'm a fraidy cat.

Well, I mean there is the 8000 series i-series procs that were just released (or will be?).

I also suggest a higher PS (like 650W), but that may just be unfounded paranoia.

The 8000 parts are much better and are coming out *this week*.

An i5 8000 is 6 cores for roughly the same price as last year's 4 cores. You'd be bonkers not to wait a week or two.

Tough to argue when he slaps you around with the knowledge. I will accede.

I know it's anecdotal but every system build I've ever done with a Gigabyte motherboard I've had pretty bad compatibility issues. Everything from RAM issues to the board not working with nVidia video cards so I pretty much just stick to Asus an MSI boards now unless a client specifically asks for a different brand.

This might not be the best place, but I think some here may be able to provide me some guidance:

I am looking to build a NAS to serve at most 3 1080p Plex streams. The NAS will be used as a fileshare/backup location for machine images as well. I would also like to run a few VMs so I can do some home lab stuff. Nothing super intense is planned currently. I do want to use H.265 to save my library, so it must be able to serve them. I am thinking FreeNas as the OS, or maybe UnRaid (I have not looked to much into this, but noticed it suggested frequently).
I have seen a few options as to how to proceed with the build, but I am looking for some guidance from those who have more experience in this area.

1: Grabbing a HPE ProLiant ML10 Gen9 with a i3-6100. Currently it can be purchased for $169, which seems like a great deal. I would need to add RAM and drives and should be good from there, but would it do all that I want it to do?

2: Follow one of JDM_WAAAT's build guides. I did notice that the Xeons used are a little older and most likely do not have HEVC encoding & Decoding, so if possible I might substitute in one of the Kaby Lake based Xeon E3 v6 CPU as they do have 10-bit HEVC encoding and decoding.

3: Look around for a recent CPU based Lenovo TS140 or Dell T30. I realize this option is similar to #1, but it might present different ideas from those reading this.

4: Something else? Maybe like grabbing an old Dell rack server off ebay? Not that I have space or a rack available.

I am open to suggestions on anything. I am not made of $$, but realize this will cost some $$, but I would prefer to save as much as I can.
Thanks ahead of time for your help!
