    Are there "WiFi" Headphones? (with WiFi not dongle)

    Thank's for your answer, I got the Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700. So a Bluetooth headset and I can switch between PC and my phone or laptop.
  2. Hello! I would like to walk around my flat with headphones on and listen to music. Currently I have wireless headphones, but they don't reach very far (dongle on PC) My PC is on one side of the flat and my living room on the other... Sometimes, if I turn my head correctly, they do work... I have excellent WiFi coverage. Are there some kind of WiFi connected headphones (so via TCP/IP or whatever ^^ and not a dongle)?? Or anything similar, so I can listen to music anywhere in my flat from my PC (or home server)?? Thanks in advance!!

    Usb hub

    I am using a USB 3 hub for a long time now and never noticed any input lag.
  4. Hello! So currently I got the "SanDisk Extreme 64 GB USB (SDCZ80-064G-FFP)". I carry it around on my keys for 3 years now and it works fine, recently it had some "hiccups" so I might need to replace it. I don't know what's different about it BUT: I got a lot of folders on it with some big and a lot of small files. (programs I need for work and so on) When I need to format it, I do a backup and after I am done doing what I was doing, I copy all my precious files back onto it. This takes under 1 Minute! I tested some new drives lately which boast "WOW much times more speed - 300 MB/s or even more!", but it takes like 10 minutes to copy my files.... I know that these speeds can be achieved when you have to copy one large file, but that wouldn't be my use-case. Is there any USB flash drive (64GB or more) that is fast in transferring small files? A portable SSD should work fine, but they are mostly too big, since I would carry it on my keys in my pocket.

    Rackmount 1U NAS for Friend what should I buy?

    I am thinking of getting the RS818+ too. Do you use it for media streaming too? How does it fair? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hello Everybody! So, I need to help a friend get a 1U 19" Rackmount NAS. It should be as cheap as possible, but with sufficient (maybe a bit more) performance. In the beginning there will be 2 drives (6TB) and there should be a possibility to expand > 4 drive bays would be good He / his family, will almost exclusively use the NAS for media streaming. (~ 5 concurrent streams maximum, I would guess). Which NAS would you recommend? Thank you in advance!

    NAS for Co-Worker

    Hello everyone! So my Co-worker built a house and asked me if I could help him with Networking (hardware and software). He wants a NAS for media streaming with a maximum of 4 or 5 Clients (TV / Phone / PC, NB). I built my own NAS, but I am not that confident to build him a custom one. So I am searching for a reliable, good, but also good price/performance, 2 or 4 bay Rackmount NAS. So far I was thinking about "NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN3138-100NES". Do you have any suggestions?? Thank you very much in advance!
  8. Did you reinstall drivers with DDU?
  9. Yes, I got FE cards with watercooling installed too (2 x 1080 Ti). They run at around 2 GHz, haven't tried to go higher but should be possible since they run at ~ 50°C at full load. I think aftermarket cards are unnecessary if you watercool them anyway (except the Asus Poseidon maybe ^^).

    Network connection takes long to "initialize"??

    I connect to a switch, which hasn't changed since I installed my NIC and it worked fine for a few weeks. The switch is also unmanaged (Asus XG-U2008) Okay thanks, but there is still a small delay, I will reboot a few times and check ^^.

    Network connection takes long to "initialize"??

    Thanks! I uninstalled Npcap and now it connects quicker, but there is still a delay. How did you fix this? Just uninstalled?
  12. Hello! So a few weeks ago the problem started, I think as I installed "Firefox" for a short time but I am unsure. When I boot my PC, my Adapters show that the network cable is unplugged and after ~1 min, they show up as working normal. The Problem occurs on the onboard LAN, as well as a 10G NIC (but same cable). Do you have any suggestions what could cause the problem? Thanks in advance!

    How to backup Programs?? Windows

    You mean the Theme, Extensions, Bookmarks, Browsing History, etc.? You can log in with your google account and sync those settings and get the "same" Chrome on every device you log into.

    #RAID0 #PCIeX16

    I got a bootable RAID0 on my Z370 (2xm.2 nvme) which has much less PCIe lanes ^^

    #RAID0 #PCIeX16

    How many m.2 drives are you planning to install? I don't think they will be able to saturate a PCIeX8 link, so no it probably will not run faster.
