  1. Like, a picture of the internal arrangement? I can do that later when I take a computer out of service. Is there something I should be looking for? I made sure that each of these machines has plenty of airflow and cooling, and we work in a climate-controlled office. EDIT: Also should have mentioned: One was dead out of the box, the other failed after two weeks in a machine. ANOTHER EDIT: If it helps, these machines were built inside Fractal Design Define R6 cases, with two 140mm front intake fans, one 140mm rear exhaust fans, and a Corsair H100i 240mm AIO top mounted with top exhaust. The cases were changed to the open internal configuration (removal of the HDD cage). Other specs are as follows: Processor: i9 9900K Motherboard: Asus Maximus XI Hero RAM: 64GB Corsair Vengance 3200MHz Storage: 1TB M.2 NVME, 2TB HDD GPU: Asus Strix OC RTX 2080ti PSU: Corsair RM850x -Adam
  2. 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. Cheers! -Adam
