  1. Just to confirm the speeds with only 1 cable I yanked one out during transfer, one from the PC and one from the NAS. It didn't stop transferring when I pulled one out but it got stuck for some time with one in each out. Then it took a few mins to start using both ports again when I replugged it all in. I did confirm that the max speed with one cable in each is 1.08GB/s and the max I saw with two cables was 1.47GB/s. I guess I'm relatively happy with it overall, but if anyone at any time in the future notices an optimisation I've missed that can make it faster, let me know!
  2. I have a powerline Ethernet plug between my Garage and Ground Floor Sockets and it works absolutely fine even though it's on a different RCD control, so unless you're 100% sure all of the cables are physically discrete between the house and garage then there's a possibility it'll work!
  3. NTFS and... Note that the space in question is called "Fast space". 5 columns means the data is striped across all 5 drives, so this is effectively RAID 0, which explains the 2113MB/s read and 2482MB/s write sequential shown above. What the GUI shows (note that you can't configure columns in the GUI so if you're having issues with a simple space's speed, this is probably why) I have tried with various types of files, the screenshot in the OP shows a single large mkv file being transferred. Trying multiple at the same time does not affect this overall speed, and yet there would be more overhead for the disks doing this (yet task manager shows nothing maxed), so I don't believe we're at the disk limits.
  4. A good question, but both machines appear to be running from the PCIe 3.0 provision from the CPU rather than the chipset, and so are both running in PCIe 3.0 4x (3.8GB/s) The NAS has no separate video card and is driven by the CPU. PC NAS
  5. Hey team! I have two Win10 based machines, each with a twin 10GbE port Intel X550 adapter. These are all connected (4 wires total) to a 10GbE switch. I fell down a huge number of rabbit holes before coming to the SMB Multichannel conclusion, which annoyingly mostly "just works". (For the love of god, avoid link aggregation if you just want speed!) So, I'm at the point where I'm up to 1.3GB/s transfer speeds, but I want as close to the full 20Gbit (2.5GB theoretical maximum) possible. I have confirmed that during a file transfer both ports on both machines are all active and sending data at balanced speeds. Crystal disk mark says the M.2 in one machine and 5x 1TB SSDs in a simple Storage Space with 5 columns in the other are all capable of > 2GB/s read / write speeds... so what do I have left to poke to improve the speed? Here are some pics which may answer some questions you may have...

  6. I can't be trying to do something that rare... can I?
  7. Hey folks, I've been having a Linus binge (as you do) and his personal rig 2015 update really stood out for me - putting his PC in a rack in another room whilst using a Thunderbolt 3 connection to pipe the video / keyboard / mouse. I'm thinking about doing something similar but I need 2x 4K capable display connections. Currently I have two monitors, one 4K which receives a DP directly from the video card, and one 1080p (currently) which receives video from an AV receiver which itself receives the signal from the PC. The reasoning behind that is that the audio is carried on this line but also that the AV receiver then splits this to two signals as it's also used for a projector. So, here's what I need: PC in one room Peripheral signals in another room: Keyboard, mouse, webcam, microphone (USB), media card reader, 4K display 60Hz, 4K display 60hz (currently 1080p 60Hz) I'm assuming I need a Thunderbolt 3 dock which has all those outputs, and a Thunderbolt 3 card in the PC which has two display IN ports. Any recommendations on these? (Preferably that I can buy in £ from the UK)
