Thanks for taking the time to read and recommend!
We have a professionally installed 10gbe network in our office to connect individual workstations to a pair of 120TB NASs (we are a small television production company). As the office geek, when it came time to upgrade our computers, the job fell to me to build seven new PCs. Everything went very smoothly, but since then I've had two of the seven 10gbe network adapter cards fail, which is starting to make me question the quality of the cards I purchased. So far, it's been no issue to just swap them out and exchange them, but rather than do this dance every few weeks or so, I'd love it if the experts here could recommend something more robust and reliable than what I've originally purchased. I understand it will cost more, but down time at the wrong moment can be a disaster for us.
The ones we have now are the Asus XG-C100C. I purchased these because the price was extremely reasonable, and I've had a lot of positive experience with Asus components. Also, all of the motherboards I spec'd for these machines are Asus, so I figured it might had off any compatibility issues. I did read up, and at the time there were no significant negative reviews on them.
EDIT: Forgot to add, looking for a card with an RJ45 style port, to save me from having to re-do all of the cable runs in the office!
If anyone has any recommendations on better options, I would be extremely grateful.
