  1. as far as the os knows the cpu was installed with 8c and 16t so it will run like that. a driver install might not fix it as windows was installed with an intel optimized version so it might still be locked after drivers are installed/updated so the best route is to reinstall. You should always reinstall if the core count changes or you move from intel to amd. but I reinstall no matter wat as I get the best performance with zero issue

    What cable do i need for 144hz

    144 at 1080p is only over display port but 120 at 1080p is supported on HDMI and DisplayPort
  3. try reinstalling the windows 10 pro and if that doesn't work it could be cause its not supported anymore on windows 10
  4. you should be fine but the cpu is getting a little old id recommend an upgrade soon to see maximum performance. you might be just fine but it could cause a bit of slowing as 4c 8threads isn't much anymore. so maybe a 6c or 8c is in your future. get a 1080ti for the price of a RTX2070 and a better cpu.

    Wifi Gaming router 100-200$ ?

    netgear r8 ac5000 I have it and its perfect. but it is a little more than 200 but so worth it cause you link aggregate if you want for your home server to be able to handle multiple devices reading at 1Gbps cause it gets 2Gbps to the router and anything reading or writing gets 1Gbps but it helps with multiple devices reading and writing

    wireless ac adapter

    do a speed test and see if the speeds are 5g level if not then go configure the router to use max through put cause on netgear you can lower the data travel on each band to a certain speed

    Help please

    not really you most likely need to reinstall unless you know what you installed when the popups started. if you do then uninstall it

    FreeNAS Using Aquantia AQtion NIC's

    so unless they make a FreeBSD driver they wont work. well time to message customer support hoping they take notice and make one. cause I bet lots of people would buy it for there nas if it works
  12. just be careful with the liquid metal use something to cover the pcb to stop it from shorting if it leaks over the edge

    Upgrading current setup

    could go with an ryzen 7 1800x, 1700x, 2700 or 2700x as it has 8 cores at the same or higher speeds if you overclock and the gpu could be a 1070 or 1080 to help with the 3d applications

    I need recommendation of a laptop around $900

    Lenovo s330 ryzen 7 laptops. they have great I/O with type c and a dedicated GPU on board and can be picked up at staples for like 400-600USD. so take that savings and put it into an ssd and swap out the 1tb hdd that it comes with.
  15. So I have 2 Aquantia AQtion AQN-108 5Gbps-2.5Gbps NIC's. One is in my main system cause I have gigabit internet and the onboard 1Gbps nic was getting 0.5Gbps and the AQN-108 got the full speed. The other one is laying on my desk cause I tried it in my freenas box and no NIC showed up for it and im wondering if an patch is coming with support for Aquantia nic's as their price is amazing for the speed they get and are rising quickly in popularity so much that gigabyte is using them soon with the 2.5Gbps chip on new mobos. does anyone know how to get it working or if a driver is coming at all.
