  1. Good point though @DakotaWebber. I didn't think of dhcp lease time. I am going to try setting it for 3 days up from 1 and see if I can get through a day without problem. To use a actual switch I need to actually run a cable between the two locations. Since I can't go through the walls, it needs to run through the living space and the will get constant wife agro.
  2. I am not aware of any switch or hub that takes a wireless signal as their uplink.
  3. Oh as a secondary note, other devices that are connected to the wifi router directly do not have any problems when this happen and are working perfectly. The wifi broadcast on the extender is actually disabled as I do not need to expand the range of it.
  4. Hello all, Running into something weird and I am hoping someone else has seen this and might have an idea why it is happening. In my place, the internet comes in to the main room near the entrance (only room that has a workable coax cable). My office is about 70 ft away. I normally work fine with wireless internet on my machines and the speed over wifi can saturate the throughput of my modem no problem. I now have 5 machines (storage server, vm server, dev mac, work laptop, and my personal gaming tower) in the same room that are all on wifi. The storage server and vm server already had a dedicated 10gig link between them, but transferring data to and from them is severely bottlenecked by my wifi. My solution was to pickup a wireless range extender, plug it's ethernet port into a switch and then those machine into the switch to get internet and file transfer between the machines over wire instead. After things are booted up, everything will work perfectly fine for 6 - 10 hours. Then the DNS lookups fail on the connected machines. Any active connections both on the local network and internet continue to work correctly (ie. rdp sessions or xfinity streams). I need to restart the router or extender and it starts working correctly again. I have so far tried reseting the router back to factory settings and only securing the wifi and had the same problem. I have also tried a different router and a different extender and that has not seemed to have fixed the issue. I have also tried setting manual ip addresses and dns entries on the extender and connected machines which didn't seem to change anything either. It is just very weird that the dns lookups fail at random. Checking the logs on the router or the extender, I am not seeing anything that stands out as a problem. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated as running a wire through the walls it not something I can really do in this apartment.
  5. As long as you aren't using to read and write to it under constant and heavy loads, it won't be a problem. I have an aero 15x with 2 512gb nvme drives for about 2 years now with no problem. And that is a thin machine with no cooling for them to speak of.
  6. I would recommend ebay to get the best bang for the buck. If you are not in a hurry, you can get some good deals. You won't have extended warranty as stated, but usually if it isn't doa it will be good for a while. I built a 6700k system with a rx 580 8gb for under 500$ to use as a Mac with nothing but ebay parts.
  7. Try disconnecting the drives and see if you can use the computer by booting from a Linux live USB drive. Like Ubuntu or similar. That will tell you if it is your drives, os install, or something else.
  8. @Ddtruth Like others have stated, try reinstalling the components to make sure they are in securely. The fans stopping on the gpu is normal when the card isn't under load. Same might be true for the motherboard one. I would also double check the manual to ensure the memory is in the correct slots. Maybe worth trying with just one stick. Also check if the board can do bios flashback. Might be worth trying that.
  9. Yeah I asked them a few times and they told me it just stayed in the corner of the desk where I put it and it is out of the way. Nothing bumped it per what they say. The previous PSU that was in that system is still being used and doesn't seem to have any issues. Tried it with another system and it booted that without issue. No substantial dust build up or anything like that I was able to find. And yeah, I don't have another board or chip to try sadly.
  10. I rebuilt it here and stress tested it and it was fine. It was relocated to the parents and was tested again while there and it was working fine. It was in service for a few weeks, then this happened. They say the computer wasn't moved or bumped at all. CPU and cooler has been removed, cleaned, and reinstalled and no help.
  11. Hello All, I have a system that was rebuilt for my family that was based on a P8Z77-V Pro motherboard and a i7-3770k processor with 16 gb of ram. Everything was working well when we delivered the system. It is not having a problem when pressing the power button, the fans spin for a second and it turns right back off. I have tried the following: bench testing with another power supply only booting with cpu and ram in machine cleared the CMOS only one stick of ram (tried a few different sticks) flashed the bios (board has bios flashback ability) reseated the CPU and cooler looked over the board to see any visible defect (none found) all of the above and the machine will still not boot up even to bios or anything. I have attached a video of the behavior I am seeing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am thinking that either the bios chip or board possibly died. Can't really think of anything else.
  12. Forgot to add it has a 1060 6gb in it for converting video. I don't do more than 2 streams though.
  13. Just my two cents as I do similar work on mine. Granted I have thread ripper but I would go either 3900x or 3950x I have one drive for host windows os that runs plex and hyper v Then one vm with 6 hard drives passed to it for storage. That runs iscsi host for further storage for vms and media storage for plex. Runs like a beast and can run 10 vms at the same time with no issue.
  14. @nejc780 I have a 7520 that has a m1200 quadro in it. I have gamed on it and no problem what so ever. Just don't expect amazing performance from it.
  15. @ShadowChaser I absolutely love my aero 15x. Dropped in my own extra stick of ram and another 1tb ssd. Runs great. Since I do development in the ms world, I even run 4 vms on it at the same time and it handles it without issue. My work issued Dell precision 7520 that cost 1000$ more can't keep up.
  16. With that budget I'd build a dedicated gaming machine and buy an ultra book. My water cooled 2080 can't hit those frame rates unless things are all at minimum. I have a aero 15x which is a great portable machine that I also use with an egpu as a dock. Might be worth looking into something like that so you have a more portable machine.
  17. Hello all, I am working with a friend that is also looking to setup 10 gb network for a workstation, vm server, and nas. I have 10gb network cards that are rj45 that I direct connected to. He also wanted to be able to connect it to the reset of his network though so his use case is a little different and also didn't want to spend 100 for each network card. Would three of these cards: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mellanox-MCX311A-XCAT-CX311A-ConnectX-3-EN-10G-Ethernet-10GbE-SFP/324083467781?epid=2235104335&hash=item4b74e14605%3Ag%3AaUUAAOSwA5ReVFiI&LH_BIN=1 three of these cables: https://www.amazon.com/10G-SFP-DAC-Cable-SFP-H10GB-CU2M/dp/B00U8BL09Q and this switch work okay?
  18. What if you put it back in the Linux system you ran granted with?
  19. So dp wasn't working on the previous card? That might be a bad cable or something with the monitor then. Austin Evans had a problem with display port cable being bad causing a computer to reboot and not work. Jay had an issue to.
  20. Not always. Do you even see the bios screen or can get in the bios? If you can't see that, then the driver isn't the problem. Did it work right with the old graphics card? Might try another pcie slot. And also hdmi if you can.
  21. Try booting into safe mode and see if the screen comes up. They will allow you to try a clean ddu of the driver and install again.
  22. Option a you can't really do with a regular soldering iron. If you have a hot air station then sure. Personally I would go with b even though I have a pretty good iron.
  23. The main number I can find is PA102F06. The is a transistor. Can't find much about it or what it's specs are. I was unable to find a board diagram for it either. Buying that component would probably be very hard. It is also hard to say if anything else would have been damaged as well without a diagram and voltage numbers.
  24. If you plan on doing any multi threaded work like streaming or video encoding, go amd 100%. For multi threaded work loads, they cream Intel at the moment. If all you care about is gaming only and want the absolute best frame rate and will close all other apps, then spend the extra for Intel.
  25. Going to really depend on the game and the resolution you are running. The 1600af won't be that much better at single thread performance. In terms of bottle neck, it is going to be pretty close to what you have. Personally I wouldn't try 1080p gaming with anything more than a 1660, 2060 super or 5500xt. Unless you are planning on upgrading to ryzen 3 within a year or so, I wouldn't bother with that cpu upgrade. I would save the money and look at mid range options late this year unless you need to upgrade now.
