  1. Power Supply efficiency

    It's how efficient the PSU is at converting AC to DC power. The higher the better generally. You should read this though https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/423141-80-plus-efficiency-and-what-it-really-means/
  2. Need a switch

    Well, if it's just that, then pretty much any non-managed switch from a known brand would be acceptable. That said, if you can't go direct from the modem/line in to your PC, you almost certainly won't be able to go from modem/line in to the switch then to the PC either.
  3. Need a switch

    Sure you're going direct to the switch with the WAN connection? You'll need something to perform NAT first, so normally it would go internet > router > switch > everything else. Do you need it to be managed? Any specific features? Or is it literally just to connect them up together?
  4. RAM Noobie question.

    It's 2134MHz (kind of a weird frequency) effective. DDR stands for Double Data Rate, which means that it performs two operations per cycle. The RAM is clocked at 1067MHz, but the effective rate is 2134, which is double the actual clock.
  5. Hdmi vs DVI

    There's generally no reason to go for DVI over HDMI in most cases. You'd need a dedicated audio output if you're using DVI (if you want audio)
  6. A different triple monitor setup

    Left most is on a two arm Duronic spring wall mount. Top left is on a single arm Duronic spring wall mount. Bottom left and middle are both on their standard monitor bases and the one of the right doesn't actually have a stand or mount. It's not Vesa mountable, so it's actually just sitting on its side, on some bluetack to stop it from slipping. I plan on replacing the right monitor with a Dell U2415 at some point, so then I'll either have that on its stand or mounted to the wall.
  7. A different triple monitor setup

    Close, it's Swiss Biker. Very much in the same style as Royal Jordanian though.
  8. A different triple monitor setup

    Someone has definitely done it. I have that in a sense, and some more monitors.
  9. Shall I use a 1TB SSD for my Synology NAS?

    The HDDs are already capable of maxing out the 1Gbps network. Adding an SSD wouldn't really help for anything other than transferring lots of small files.
  10. High Speed Storage

    It is, yes. I would personally advise to go for the EVO rather than the Pro and save a bit of money, but if they're close in price, may as well have to Pro. SSHDs are only worth the cost in one situation (in my opinion): 1. You only have room for 1 drive in the system 2. You can't afford a large enough SSD 3. Using external drives for storage is not an option If you don't have those 3 conditions, SSHDs aren't worth it. You're better off going with an SSD + HDD setup. SSD for OS, frequently used programs and games. Then the HDD for mass storage of media, other games and so on.
  11. High Speed Storage

    Optane memory basically acts as a cache, so frequently used data loads faster (provided that Optane is faster than the primary storage) and small writes are fast. This would have basically no affect on boot times and for the most part, won't affect the majority of most people's work flow. It can be useful for speeding up HDD storage in some cases, especially for writing to the HDD, but a dedicated SSD is always going to be better as you can choose exactly what goes onto it and what gets the speed benefits. It's also cheaper for larger capacities of high speed storage, so a dedicated SSD is basically always better. RAID 0 stripes data across multiple drives. This (theoretically) multiplies data throughput by the amount of drives in the array. However, if any of the drives in the array fail or get corrupted, or the array itself fails, you lose all data on the array. So it also multiplies the chances of losing data. For NVMe drives, they're already at the point where most applications don't take advantage of the speed benefits they provide, so adding more speed to them really doesn't make sense. All you'd really be doing is increasing your chances of losing data for no real world performance benefits.
  12. High Speed Storage

    A single NVMe SSD would be the fastest (technically, two in RAID 0 would be faster, but you shouldn't do that) Optane really doesn't make a lot of sense. There aren't many situations where I'd say it is worth it
  13. what are the top highest paid Technical Jobs?

    Network architect/consultants can make insane amounts of money when working with big companies,. Its a position that will be needed for a long time to come and demand should be fairly constant as businesses are always going through upgrades and such. You need to be very, very good to get to that point though
  14. HDMI problem

    It also has a Mini DisplayPort, which you will need to use to run more than 1 display.
  15. Just checked some drive prices to expand my storage a bit further. Since when were 4TB HDDs £90 and 500GB SSDs £70? 

    1. Ramamataz


      Depends on the year and stuff fam. Usually the more time progresses the cheaper shit gets. Though im not sure if those 4TB HDD are for NAS or not
