    pfSense bandwidth management

    Limiters and/or QoS. Read up in pfSense book.

    CPU as important for FPS as GPU?

    This covers most stuff, but to add: Some games give CPU more tasks, such as physics calculations. Therefore some games can be more CPU-bound while others put more emphasis on more GPU-power.

    psu to hot?

    What PSU?
  4. jj9987

    Raspberry Pi 3b or 3b+

    Pi 3B+ is slightly newer, has more processing power (and can sustain it for longer), consumes more electricity and has higher wired and wireless network throughput. Rest is the same.

    Is it compatible ?

    It supports it, but you may need a BIOS update before the board can recognise the 9th gen CPU. EDIT: Right here is the information - https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B360M-AORUS-GAMING-3-rev-10#support-cpu

    NVMe SSD Sequential Read/Write Regression

    Did you have the RAPID mode enabled? That uses RAM as a buffer/cache, which would explain the higher speeds.
  7. Yup. Card was advertised to have 2 GB of memory, but tools show 1 GB (or can't read it at all).

    2x GTX 980's or 1 GTX 1060?

    To add - only in games that can take advantage of SLI.

    Ethernet over HDMI

    GPUs don't support Ethernet connections for sure. Don't know any motherboard (in case of iGPUs) that would support that either. It's mostly used for giving Ethernet from some sort of receiver/player to the TV, but that is very rarely used here in EU AFAIK. Seems to be very niche product. So no.

    What drives to use in a budget data server

    Am running 6 WD Red drives in my NAS, 4 of them are about 4-5 years old now. Not a single issue with any of them.
  12. It's good, but it's also pricey. In addition, ASUS warranty is just okay compared to, for example, EVGA, whose customer support is remarkable.
  13. They all have the exact same core supplied by Nvidia, but they may have different clocks, if the manufacturer decides to overclock the card, different memory manufacturer, PCB, power delivery (number of PCI-E power connectors), coolers, price, design, warranty etc.
  14. 1) Only the cables that you want to customize. If they aren't visible, then you can save some money to not order them. For CPU, you need 1 EPS cable with 1x 8-pin (depending on the board). Then you need 24-pin ATX cable, the necessary cables for the 980 Ti (there are different power configurations, 8-pin+6-pin, 2x 8-pin, 2x 8-pin + 6-pin). Then SATA power/data cables, if you want and have the money. All cables are PSU dependent as PSUs use different plugs.
