    Hi there

    running 3 VM's most of the time, running 2 X PLEX media servers and 2 X Logitech media servers on a 16 GB Micro HP server with 4 HDD's (Raided at 2 X 9 TB each RAID 0) I have ZERO problems with a little Celeron processor in the server - average consumption is around 40 - 50 watts when serving media to around 3 clients concurrently. Not sure why you would need a "Steam hammer to crack a nut with".

    Most bad computer performance for domestic machines is due to 3 things I've found over YEARS of working with PC's.

    1) POOR or Slow HDD's --by far the most common issue these days.
    2) Lack of RAM
    3) Slow or inadequate Network speeds
    4) Junk Graphic cards
    5) Finally --well down on the list -- lack of CPU power. OK for extreme gamers this could be an issue but for 99% of Home type computer users things like 4 X or 8X i7 type processors are HUGELY overkill. Fix your I/O and Network stuff first.

    Cheers

    Planning on a lot of gaming, with Andromeda and Prey releasing soon to PC! Hope to enjoy all the thrilling visuals and story-line. As well as playing Watchdogs 2. Replaying GTA V on high. And some editing.

    Much stable after latest bios updates and recent AMD optimized power plan add-on for win 10.

    You could have two High performance plans with slightly different settings. I always make new power plan based on high performance and can easily switch when needed.
