  1. Sorry, 4 years late to the party. Using VLANs can keep them separate when connecting them together for network redundancy.
  2. Running Time Warner Cable (Now Spectrum) cable/coax internet. Having to pleb it out with this 350x100 connection until I move in Q1'19 to my new location which provides Google Fiber to the neighborhood. 1000x1000 here I come!!!
  3. A bunch of unencrypted and un-wiped servers that belonged to now defuncted NCIX that held massive amounts of shoppers payment information had been sold to a lucky buyer on Craigslist. It would appear bankruptcy foregoes the rules of data security and isn't a good thing for many. RIP NCIX https://www.zdnet.com/article/canadian-retailers-servers-storing-15-years-of-user-data-sold-on-craigslist/
  4. A question to ask is the medium being utilized for your ISP. Do you have coax, copper pair (DSL), WISP, Satellite, etc. Knowing what the medium is and or the company providing your access is helpful as well. Easier to troubleshoot/narrow down. Remember, 2 rules for troubleshooting: 1.) Always blame the distant end. It's never your equipment's fault. 2.) If rule 1 didn't work then start from layer 1 of OSI and work your way up to 7.
  5. Oh hell, that's right. I'm so used to only using aida64, I forgot GPUz existed. Good catch. Although now that I think about it...I bet aida64 would tell me too. *sigh* (Hands in IT card and takes walk of shame) Thanks!
  6. Greetings LTT Community, I'm new to the forum so here goes my first post. I recently consolidated all of my PC's (2x desktops) and laptops (4x laptops) into a single beefy laptop that I purchased from Xidax (XM-11 model which is practically a re-branded Sager NP987OU2-G Linus reviewed here: Specs CPU - Intel i7-6700K @ 4.0GHz GPU - 2x Nvidia GTX980M SLI RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 @ 2800 64GB SSD Set 1 - 2x Samsung 950 PRO 512GB m.2 in RAID 0 SSD Set 2 - 2x Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SATA in RAID 1 OS - Windows 10 PRO Screen - 1920x1080 w/ G-Sync @ 75GHz WLAN - Killer 1535 802.11ac adapter LAN - Dual Killer E2400 10/100/1000 adapters 1x USB 3.1 Type C 6x USB 3.0 1x HDMI 2.0 (Or 1.4, I forget) 2x Mini Display So here is my inquiry, I'm trying to figure out if I wasted money on the m.2 SSD for faster speeds to the OS as they utilize 4x PCI-E lanes each for a total of 8 lanes. The Intel i7-6700K CPU only has 16 lanes per the Intel ARK. So my drives are already utilizing 50% of my lanes. Unknown in the Nvidia website or their own forums can I find information on how many lanes the GTX980M utilizes each much less in SLI mode as I have them currently. Anyone have an idea as to what that answer would be? Am I possibly trying to over utilize the lanes or wasting performance and need to cut back on my m.2 drives? As fast as it is I'm loving the drives but willing to give 1 or both up if need to since the CPU has a limited number of lanes.
