    Good NAS Backup Software?

    You are right, its just the games, most save files are on the steam cloud anyway. I just like to have them backed up the games somewhere, since my RAID 0 array failed a few times (my own faults ^^). Since I download new games sometimes and sometimes there are big updates, I would like to back them up weekly and automatically (my NAS has a lot of unused space anyway).
  2. Hello everybody! So since some time my PC feels so sluggish ... Many programs need way too long to start, Windows explorer takes forever sometimes to open file directories. I just want a fast experience when I am using my PC ! My Hardware shouldn't be the problem, I hope: OS: Windows 10 latest Update CPU: i7-6700K @ 4,7 GHz MB: Asus Maximus VIII Formula C drive: Samsung 960 Pro 1 TB D drive: 2 x Samsung 950 Pro 1 TB in Raid0 gfx cards: 2 x 1080 Ti (Asus FE) Last new windows installation ~2 weeks ago

    System feels sluggish

    okay thanks! Could be the windows update thing, I did a fresh install like 2 weeks ago! Additionally, could it be my overclock? I remember a few years back, you had to increase the VCCIO (or whatever ^^) voltage too and do some fine tuning. But I kept it fairly low with 4,7 GHz

    System feels sluggish

    That could be the cause! I opted to install as few drivers as possible and let Windows do its stuff... (read it would be better, somewhere...)
  5. Thanks, I'll keep it in mind!
  6. Hey Guys! So I have a stupid question, kind of. I got a "Dual Channel Kit" of DDR4 RAM (Link: GSKILL F4-3200C16Q-32GVK) Does it matter in which order i plug the DIMMs in? So, are they marked with like numbers or something to indicate which 2 DIMMs to put in the same colored slots? Thank you very much in advance! Best regards TomSerious
  7. It was a pack of 4 DIMMs (4 x 8GB). So I guess, if all slots are filled (Maximus VIII Formula [4 RAM Slots]), then I should be fine right? Thanks!

    64GB to 128GB - how exactly?

    Since the motherboard has 8 slots you could, potentially, just put another Kit of 64GB into it. oops 2l8, sorry ^^

    2-way SLI worth it?

    Just got my second 1080 Ti, thanks all ^^

    2-way SLI worth it?

    Hello all. I just got my 1080 Ti. Now I am considering a second 1080 Ti (FE). Is it worth it? (Cost does not matter) Thanks!
  11. Hey all, I want to get the new GTX 1080 Ti and watercool it. Either the Founders Edition or the Strix one. My question now is, do I only pay extra for the cooler, * so do I get the same performance if I apply a better cooler myself? Thanks in advance! TomSerious * b4 edit: or is it possible to overclock the Strix card further than the Founders Edition?
  12. TomSerious

    Founders Edition vs. "Custom" Card

    I got a really big case so should be no problem, but I will throw away the cooler anyway ^^ Just ordered the Asus Founders Edition btw !

    Founders Edition vs. "Custom" Card

    Then sorry for the misunderstanding and thank you!
  14. TomSerious

    Founders Edition vs. "Custom" Card

    Sorry to oppose, but if the temperature is lower you can OC a chip further. If I forget to adjust my fans (after I turned them down to run while I sleep) my CPU OC fails (normal 50°C max, low fans 70-80°C)! But anyway, my question was not asked correctly (I'll edit): If I can cool down the Founders Edition Card enough, will it be able to achieve the same performance / OC as the Strix one?

    What game to play ...

    Hey guys, so I am bored out of my mind and I am bored of the typical games I play (WoW, Assetto Corsa, TESO)... Could anyone recommend me a single player game? Or a way to find a game that's actually fun (I pretty much like everything, except retro games)? I have, currently, 666 games in my steam library but I go down the list and can't seem to find anything fun... Maybe tell me which game you play currently? Thank you in advance Cheers, TomSerious

    RAID 0 fail after BIOS update

    Dear LTT cummunity! I hope you can help me with this one. A few minutes ago I updated my bios and that made my RAID 0 array fail. As in the attached picture, there is 1 drive missing but an "additional" drive down below which should correctly be the "missing" disk! It should be mentioned, that it's not a boot drive, but the storage array with all my games and documents (I can't remember if all my data on that storage array is backed up on my NAS) Additional note, everything was running fine for months, just after the (successful) BIOS update the raid array broke, everything else still runs fine. Hardware: i7-6700K at 4,8GHz 32gb of some Gskill RAM at 3200 MHz Asus Maximus VIII Formula Samsung 950 512gb (Boot drive) Samsung 850 Pro x 2 (should be Raid 0) GTX 1080 FE at ~1900MHz Custom Watercooling (EKWB) Has anyone any ideas? Thank you very much in advance! Best regards TomSerious

    RAID 0 fail after BIOS update

    Unluckily, I already reset the array and it works fine now, I did automaticly disable CSM though. Thanks anyway, but I hope I don't have to try that in the future haha.

    RAID 0 fail after BIOS update

    @goodtofufriday, thanks, I updated the original comment @pwn_intended, thanks for the information, but I changed it directly after the BIOS update was finished
  20. Hello everybody. Got any recommendations on a good gaming (and office...) notebook? Preferably Asus and the price doesn't matter really, let's say a max of € 3000 or so. Thank you very much in advance! Best regards Thomas

    New Notebook Gaming And Office

    Thank you!! To clarify, I got a very nice desktop at home (i7 6700k 4,7ghz/gtx 1080/950pro/custom water cooling and so on ^^), I would just need the laptop on business trips to play in the evening or when I am at my gf and would do my on trip office work on it.

    New keyboard and mouse?

    Hello everybody! So my current keyboard is the "G910 Orion Spark" and the mouse "Naga Epic Chroma". Now one key broke on my Naga and I was thinking about getting a new keyboard anyways. About the G910, it's okay to type but after setting up my old G710 (MX Brown) the G910 feels kinda "mushy?" and the non RGB media keys are annoying. About the mouse, I would need a few macro buttons (minimum of 2 extra) on it, about the size of the Naga and RGB. Budget is not a factor! I was glancing at Corsair now for a while (thanks Linus) and preferably I would like to get the keyboard and mouse from the same manufacturer (one software). How about those: Corsair K95 RGB - MX Brown Corsair Scimitar RGB Do you have any other suggestions? Thank you very much in advance!

    New keyboard and mouse?

    haha, yeah that is the only thing about the K95, it could use 10 less macro buttons. But regarding the mouse, I am so used to my 12 buttons on the Naga, I don't really wanna miss them (keys like: Enter, Esc, B, M)

    2000th Person Asking About the Steam Controller

    I have mine now for a while. At first I wanted to send it back, but after fiddling around with it and playing more games, I will never use my xbox controller again. Racing games need a bit to set up but, in my opinion, feel and play much better with the steam controller (over xbox).
