  1. 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!!

    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.

    Usb hub

    I am using a USB 3 hub for a long time now and never noticed any input lag.
  4. 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!
  5. 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!

    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 ^^.
  11. 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!

    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?

    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.
  16. Hello! So I will setup my home server soon, now I ask myself how to setup the Boot "RAID1 array" for the OS (Windows Server 2016). I have 2 SSDs with ~250GB, where I would like to install the OS onto. My motherboard supports BIOS/"firmware?" Raid (Intel RST enterprise SATA/SSATA option ROM Utility) (Board: Asus Z11PA-U12). Should I just setup the RAID1 in the BIOS/Firmware? Or is there a "better" way? (I know of other ways but not if they are better ^^) Thanks in advance!

    Best way to setup a bootable RAID1?

    I actually have 2 x 960 Pro 1TB in RAID 0 (what you meant) in my gamig rig. If you don't keep any important data on there why not? the performance is incredible! Daily backups are enough security for me ^^ (on the gaming rig) Thank you! I will probably only use one SSD now. It would be possible btw, to create a RAID array in command prompt at the installation of windows ^^

    Home Server upgrade

    Thank you both for helping! I think I will go for the Xeon Silver 4110, since the D-2100 Series isn't available in my region now and the 4110 has a bit higher clock speeds at a small price increase.

    Home Server upgrade

    Hello! I am running Windows Server 2016 on my home server and currently there is a i7-6700K installed (on a B150 board), which is delidded and has liquid metal in it ( ), with only 16 GB of non ECC RAM. I think about upgrading to: Intel® Xeon® Silver 4108 Processor (~ € 415) Asus Z11PA-U12 (3 mini SAS connectors would be really nice to have, or 12 SATA Ports) (~ € 365) 1 Stick of Kingston Premier DIMM 32GB, reg ECC (KSM26RD4/32HAI) for maybe future updates (~ € 370) Money wouldn't be the issue here, but do you have any suggestions for a other config which would make more sense? Also those components would be easily available and I don't like to buy used stuff. Thanks in advance!

    Home Server upgrade

    The Server currently will be used for NAS and some VMs which run some small tasks.

    Moved thread

    I opened a new thread sorry
  22. Hello! I want to upgrade to 10GBit at home (well, the connection from Gaming Rig to NAS). The question now is, would I loose any performance on my Gaming Rig by doing so? I have: 1x i7-8700K 2 x 1080Ti 2 x Samsung 960 Pro 1TB, in RAID0 I want to add one 10G NIC (ROG AREION 10G ?) I kinda know that there is an "excess" of PCIe Lanes on the Z370 Chipset for the drives and other stuff. But will those be enough? Or will I loose any performance? Thanks in advance!
  23. They are NVMe (M.2) I have a "Asus ROG Maximus X Hero", but wouldn't thunderbolt use PCIe lanes too? Money is no concern, I would rather to it with ethernet, but thanks! Thank you! At the intel chipset spec site the max number of PCIe lanes is 24, so could it be a x8 link too?
  24. Hello! So I run a NAS in my home (unraid OS) and want to backup my steam library which currently is 1,04TB in size. My documents and such are managed by the Windows 10 backup tool... Do you have any recommendations for a GOOD Backup software? I made some bad experiences with Acronis and Crashplan, but maybe because of trial versions? It should allow for 2 or more schedules and be as quick as possible ^^! Also I don't care for the price (as long as it's reasonable) and don't want any cloud stuff. Thank you very much in advance!

    Good NAS Backup Software?

    Yes, sorry! I meant which software to use... Thank you, I will try Veeam
