    "Affordable" 10Gb Switch

    I only have one RJ45 port in my office and the NAS is in another room connected to my home network. I don't want it sitting on or near my desk because it's quite large and really noisy.

    "Affordable" 10Gb Switch

    I think I could get away with 2x10GbE. I'll take a look at that one.

    "Affordable" 10Gb Switch

    Hey guys, I've got a QNAP NAS set up for my video production archive and have been running it off of 1Gb network. It's fine for now, but I have several very large projects that I need to archive and I'd like to get it connected via 10Gb. The QNAP itself has a 10Gb card installed, and I've got a 10Gb card installed on my workstation - I just need the switch. I know QNAP recently released an 8 and 12-port model for relatively cheap, but I was wondering if there were any other options out there. Maybe even a used ebay purchase? Looking for something small. Don't need 24+ ports.

    x299 2017 Workstation

    UGH I KNOW!! I couldn't get it situated the correct way because of the size of the case. The cables are just too stiff to push in if I flipped it around. Not sure what to do about that

    x299 2017 Workstation

    Just finished putting together my much needed upgraded workstation (Previous workstation was from 2013). I own a video production company and do the majority of my own editing and motion graphics in Premiere/After Effects. Here's the parts list. I already owned the PSU (and some 850 SSDs) from a previous build. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/sDCMNN The i9 is currently running stable at 4.3Ghz with the RAM at 3300 EDIT: Also forgot to mention that I'll be doing custom Cablemod cables, but I needed the system up and running ASAP because of work. Once I get the time to open it up and plan it out, I'll post an update!

    Z840 4K Playback Woes

    Hey guys. First post here, but I've run into a troubleshooting issue for a friend and have no idea what's going on. It's driving me nuts First, he bought a brand new Z840 from HP. We're both in the pro field of video (we own our own production companies) so this system is for editing. He's mainly shooting 4K XAVC on a Sony F5 and does a lot of 1080p delivery. What we've found on the new system is 4K playback is abysmal. Premiere CC2015.4, CC2017, and even in straight VLC player it's just not good. We've tried playing directly from his internal SSD (PCIe) and from a QNAP NAS over 10Gbit. I have a system I built almost 4 years ago with an updated video card and I have no issue with playback of these files, or from the extremely similar 4k files from my Sony FS7. His specs: 2x Xeon 2.1ghz 8-core CPUs 32GB ram GTX 1080 Windows 10 64bit One thing to add: The power supply in the workstation is some kind of proprietary unit, so not easily swapped out. There were only 3x6-pin cables free, and the GPU uses 2x8-pin. We had to use some adapters to get the 1080 hooked up. We ran Cinebench like this and it worked absolutely fine. In fact, it did incredibly well in both tests. I'm just wondering if this could possibly be an issue. HOWEVER, Adobe seems to claim that any video playback (in Premiere at least) is done strictly on the CPU, and not the GPU... Please don't suggest he goes out and builds his own system. He's not computer savvy, and he wants on-demand support. I'm doing this as a friend to try and help him out.
