This is a super quick user review on a 990fx system, while we wait for ryzen

so i was wondering to see how far the 960 EVO would go on a 990FX PCIe 2.0 system before it was bottlenecked by PCIe 2.0

You have to pick your PCIe slot carefully.
Some PCIe slots are wired differently some are x1 some are x4 or x8
so you have to check manual to find the right slot

anyhow this seems to be a nice ssd, the reason why i am using it in 990fx atm is that am building a new ryzen system soon and why not try it out in a older system and compare it later eh?

Running Shotcut Open Source Video Editor and editing video from 960 EVO is quite fast

System:

  • Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
  • FX-8350
  • 32GB DDR3
  • MSI Gaming X RX 480 8GB
  • Asus Xonar DX PCIe x1 Soundcard
  • 960 EVO 500GB using a JZLL PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter
  • 850 PRO 512GB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
  • 850 EVO 1TB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
  • TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB using AMD SATA 6Gbps

Setup a Ubuntu Server

(a Idiots guide to running a linux based web server)

this guide will make your server both secure and easy to administer

1. Droplet with LAMP Stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP)

Go to DigitalOcean
Create a account
Select Size
Select Region
Select Image
Applications
LAMP on Ubuntu 14.04

2. Set mysql “root” Password and secure it

  • mysqladmin -u root -p'password' password newpassword
  • /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

3. Add a Web User

  • adduser webuser
  • usermod -a -G www-data webuser
  • chgrp -R www-data /var/www
  • chmod -R 770 /var/www
  • ln -s /var/www /home/webuser/www

Now you can login with webuser using
a sftp client like Filezilla (use port 22)
and you have access to www files

4. Adminer (Optional)

Web based MySQL administration

  • sudo apt-get install adminer
  • sudo servie apache2 restart

You can now login with mysql root/password
http://yoursite.com/adminer

5. Monitoring (Optional)

vnstats lets you monitor daily/monthly bandwidth usage

  • apt-get install vnstat

nethogs is a realtime monitor for ethernet traffic

  • apt-get install nethogs

Glances is a system monitor for your GNU/Linux or BSD operating system from console

  • sudo apt-get install python-pip build-essential python-dev
  • sudo pip install Glances
  • sudo pip install PySensors

6. Secure the system

  • adduser your_username
  • echo "your_username ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL" >> /etc/sudoers

Now you can run root commands by adding sudo before
the command you want to run like sudo apt-get install
use your user password

*disaster sudo recovery

  • Go to Droplets > Access > Console Access
  • logout
  • login as root
  • nano /etc/sudors <- modify it

7 Disable root login

  • nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
  • change PermitRootLogin yes to PermitRootLogin no
  • sudo service ssh restart

now login as your_username and run sudo before every command
if you want to become root again run
sudo su
