  1. Not sure what to tell you other than find a certified cable elsewhere. You could also test your current DP cable with another display that has DP for good measure, but I would assume you don't have access to another native DP display.
  2. I've had similar issues with non-certified DP cables, this one solved all my problems: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F85RQD2/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 You aren't adapting the signal I assume?

    Buzzing noise while monitoring mic audio

    You're monitoring your mic from a mixer via your on-board soundcard? Through what? Just the Windows Listen option?

    Bypass NVIDIA's 2 Stream Encode Limit On Windows

    The people managing the Linux patch have added windows support and it actually works!: https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch/tree/master/win I use FFmpeg to capture 5 live video sources (2 displays, a camera, 2 audio streams linked to a black screen) simultaneously while keeping everything synchronized. Previously I had to encode 3 of the streams with my CPU which brought my CPU usage up quite a bit, and that was after greatly lowering the bitrate for one of the 3 recordings as to not peg the processor. But post patch I can encode all 5 video streams with just my GTX 1080 and no compromise on bitrates. Stream 1 - Resolution=256x120 | Framerate=25 | Video Bitrate=16K | Audio Channels=2 | Audio Frequency=44100 | Audio Bitrate=384K Stream 2 - Resolution=256x120 | Framerate=25 | Video Bitrate=16K |Audio Channels=2 | Audio Frequency=44100 | Audio Bitrate=384K Stream 3 - Resolution=1920x1080 | Framerate=60 | Video Bitrate=288M | Audio Channels=2 | Audio Frequency=44100 | Audio Bitrate=384K Stream 4 - Resolution=3440x1440 | Framerate=100 | Video Bitrate=288M | Audio Channels=2 | Audio Frequency=44100 | Audio Bitrate=384K Stream 5 - Resolution=3840x2160 | Framerate=60 | Video Bitrate=288M | Audio Channels=1 | Audio Frequency=44100 | Audio Bitrate=192K GPU encoder hovers around 85% and VRAM around 4GB, this patch makes the GTX 1080 extremely powerful in this regard at an amazing value. The GTX 1080 has 2 NVENC chips making it 2x as powerful for encoding when compared to it's smaller like series brethren, the cheapest equivalent Quadro is around $1200 used. Pretty sweet.
  5. Honestly if you're sure that you don't have surround enabled on the back port somehow I think you've already diagnosed and found the problem if the front jack works fine.

    Quadro GPU for OBS Stream?

    Quadros also have the ability to encode / decode unlimited output video streams while Geforce cards are limited to two, additionally higher end Quadros have additional NVENC chips allowing for more bandwidth. For example when talking bandwidth (live encoding without dropping frames): Geforce GTX 1050 (1 NVENC Chip) - can encode 1x4K60 output Geforce GTX 1080 (2 NVENC Chips) - can encode 2x4K60 outputs Quadro GP100 (3 NVENC Chips) - can encode 4x4K60 outputs Or when talking about session limits, Quadros have none, very useful for lower resolution outputs like 1080p60 (live encoding without dropping frames): Geforce GTX 1050 (1 NVENC Chip) - can encode 2x1080p60 outputs Geforce GTX 1080 (2 NVENC Chips) - can encode 2x1080p60 outputs Quadro GP100 (3 NVENC Chips) - can encode around 16x1080p60 outputs Quadro P2000 (1 NVENC Chip) - can encode around 5x1080p60 outputs While both the GTX 1050 & 1080 have the headroom or encoding bandwidth to encode 5-7 1080p60 stream simultaneously they can only encode 2 due to artificially imposed session limits. I included the P2000 in this use case as it still gives you the ability to encode more than 2 streams if needed at under $300, while the GP100 costs $4000+. There is a common misconception that when encoding with like generation cards there is no difference but this is not true, as demonstrated above the GTX 1080 actually has twice the encoding bandwidth as the GTX 1050. Meaning if you were streaming to Youtube at 4K60 and wanted to concurrently local record at 4K60 the GTX 1080 could handle it while the GTX 1050 could not, streaming while local recording is a very common use case. Streaming while local recording also gives Quadros (even at lower resolutions) an interesting use case while using OBS in conjunction with NDI. For example if you wanted to stream to Twitch and wanted to record both your camera and gameplay as separate local files for nondestructive editing you could if you used a Quadro. This is because as mentioned earlier Quadros have no session limits, in this use case you're outputting 3 video streams (camera + gameplay combined, the camera, the gameplay) which exceeds the 2 stream limit on Geforce cards. This could be very useful for someone who wants to upload part of their streams to Youtube without losing quality when zooming in on the camera which many use for comedic effect. Seeing as the Quadro P2000 is less than $300 and has the capability to do so it's really not that impractical. Nvidia's Video Encode and Decode GPU Support Matrix - https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix Using NDI to record sources separately without overlays by Epos Vox - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu5JFAIWH8Y Pascal based NVENC chips will get you about the same quality as CPU encoding at preset Very Fast. So yes you could get better quality with CPU encoding but it will only be noticeable if you're willing to shell out $300+ for a CPU that can handle medium to low presets. Meanwhile you could pick up a GTX 1050 for around $100 for very decent and watchable quality.
  7. Almost sounds like you've got surround enabled while outputting to a stereo device, had a similar issue with a PS4 and an HDMI audio extractor.

    Best speakers under $100?

    I believe the Logitech Z623 are the best budget speakers with an included sub woofer: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Z623-Watt-Speaker-System/dp/B003VAHYTG/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1545242147&sr=1-6&keywords=logitech+speakers

    Will an external sound card help mic quality?

    Something like this may fix this issue: https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Headphone-Microphone-Aluminum-Compatible/dp/B00NMXY2MO/ref=sr_1_14?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1545241252&sr=1-14&keywords=usb+sound+card If you find the quality unsatisfactory you may have to go with something a bit "higher end": https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Performance-Headphone-Integrated-Microphone/dp/B00EZT7RE4?SubscriptionId=AKIAJB3PKOUXZY2U5MTQ&tag=pcgamingbui02-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B00EZT7RE4#customerReviews Or you could try internal sound cards: https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Audigy-Performance-Headphone/dp/B00EO6X4XG/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 https://www.amazon.com/Xonar-DGX-GX2-5-Audio-Engine/dp/B007TMZ1BK/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1545241849&sr=8-4&keywords=internal+sound+card https://www.amazon.com/d/Internal-Sound-Cards/Creative-Blaster-Performance-Headphone-Desktop/B009ISU33E/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1545241849&sr=8-5&keywords=internal%2Bsound%2Bcard&th=1

    I'd first try the headset on a variety of devices to make sure the on-board audio is the problem and not the headset.

    Sound only works when balanced left or right

    There probably is something wrong with that port, but I highly doubt that every input is broken. Try the other inputs, 3.5mm to dual RCA should do the trick: https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-3-5mm-Auxiliary-Stereo-Splitter/dp/B00LM2Y2U4/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1544636038&sr=8-9&keywords=3.5mm+to+rca

    Do you have the model of said receiver? Which port are you using?

    Audio Passthrough?

    I can't speak for every combo unit but as I mentioned previously, every one that I've tried doesn't have proper EDID functionality. Meaning as you switch between devices the other device still thinks it's connected, and daisy chaining them produces other oddities. Additionally this switch only supports 1080p which may be fine for now, but I think it best to future proof. All that being said, Amazon has a great return policy, if you find anything doesn't fit your needs you can return it. Basically how I got all my knowledge on switches and extractors, though everything I've tested is 4K60 444.

    Have you tried using a different device or the back audio port instead of the front? It sounds like you're sending a stereo signal into a mono input, could be the cable too. Could you upload a few pictures of everything?

    Single 240mm for 9900K and 2080?...

    I would not go with any less than 360mm for a loop containing a 9900K and a RTX 2080, and even then I'd go with upper end radiators. What case is it, impossible to do a 240mm and a 120mm?
