  1. Oh wow, yeah, I have some ram that I don't "use" atm.
  2. Wow, thanks for the input! I'll think I will try the free trial and see if it`s better or not in terms of performance. Thanks again
  3. I have an intel optane 32 GB ssd, with their intel rst software, but I was wondering if I should maybe switch to primocache or something else? I am referring to this video from 2018, but a lot of things can happen between that time and now, so was wondering what cache-solution is the best in 2020? So, what would be the best solution for me to use with an HDD(only for games, but not my main games, those are on a ssd..)
  4. Looking for a hub where it has 5+ USB 3.0 ports, would be nice with 1 or 2 USB C, but not a game-breaker. If it needs its own power brick, it needs to have a decent length, since it will be going on a standing desk. Would be great if it could be around the 100$ mark. Edit: Will be used with a desktop
  5. I'm reinstalling windows atm, just in case there's actually was something wrong with windows. If that doesn't work I'll clear the CMOS. If that shouldn't work, I'll contact asus?
  6. 1-2 weeks ago, It would take about 13.2 seconds to boot into windows. But now it can take anything from 20- 35 seconds. I havn't installed any thing new.
  7. I have a Samsung 970 EVO Plus, so the speed of the system shouldn't be an issue. However, the BIOS is so slow to load when I turn on the pc. The specs isn't the issue, however, I'll post them anyway. I'm wondering if there's anything I can change to make it boot faster? Specs: i7 - 8700k @4.8 Asus 2080 Asus Prime Z370-A Samsung 970 EVO Plus samsung 860 ssd Corsair Dominator RGB DDR4 3200MHz 32GB 3 tb hdd with an Intel Optane 32gb
  8. I have overclocked my i7-8700k, and that's a very hot chip. I have delid it though. For me, I would say that my range is in the 80's, however, my cpu doesn't reach those numbers. If you run your cpu on a high temp for a LONG time, it may "die" faster in the futere(but it some cases it doesn't affect the longevity of the cpu). Linus made a video talking about the "safe" temp for different pc parts:
  9. I'm tinkering with my internet and read recently that they're some arguing about to disabling or enabling IPV6 can actually be a good/bad thing to do. So, what are the benefits and disadvantages to enabling it? With that said, should I keep IPV6 disabled in my router or leave it on? I'm trying squeeze every bit of speed I can get out of my internet connection. So I thought I should ask since it was turned off by defualt in my settings.
  10. I recently bought a TL-SG108E. My previous router had the wan port as VLAN 102, I did that to bypass my ips router. So how do I do that on the switch. I got a bit confused when I saw the untagged/tagged ports, and networking isn't my strong side of the tech world. In the picture is what I did, I don't know if it's correct.
  11. I did what you asked, and cleaned up the wireless interference and it's good. No-one on the network has gotten disconnected(yet). I am noticing some dead spots, and some weak speeds. So I'll look into setting up an ai mesh of some sort (in the future). I'll be monitoring the network and see if anything "bad" happens. But thanks for helping me out!
  12. Yes, once I've fixed the 2.4- 5GHZ, the hidden SSID will go away. The "old" setup was modem -> router. The new setup is just the asus router with a vlan 102. (but the old setup is temporary online, it will go away when the issues are fixed) 1. I'll definitely try that out, and hopefully it helps 2. I'll look more into those setting, and try to adjust some of those settings
  13. I'll change it to not auto, and fix the frequency. I'm already using WPA2 with AES. The antennas are not up against a wall. Technically 3 of those are mine. "Altibox Wifi" is mine, and the "hidden ssid" is just the asus router switching from 2.4 to 5 ghz for devices. Those "Altibox Wifi" will get removed when the Asus router situation is fixed, so they are just temporary. However, if those things doesn't fix my situation, what would you recommend me do then?
  14. I'll look more into it. How's the software side, and is there any speed drop-off when using them?
  15. 1. They provided a simple modem. However, It's rather easy to bypass. I just setup a vlan 102, as the wan, and now the Asus router is my "main" router/modem. 2. With a cable it's perfect. 3. I let the AC88 set it up for me. If you mean what channel they're on, it's on the pictures. My network name is "Asus_Ruter". This is taking the floor right above the router(so the the 5ghz think I'm much farther than I am). The merlin firmware is set to "auto" for the channels, and It changes quite frequently. (sorry if you meant for me to send something else)
  16. Hello people, I need some help picking a good Router to get for me in 2020. I recently got an Asus RT-AC88U on sale. The problem, however, is it's unstable. The stock firmware was unstable, leading that the wireless connection would just disconnect for no reason at all. I got recommend using Merlin firmware, which was better, but still, I lose connection. I live in a big house, however, It's a bit old(but renovated). The problem with that is that I can't get new internet cables across the house to set up a good mesh network. I game quite a lot, however, I use a
  17. The problem is fixed now, but I'll try out your settings and see if those are better.
  18. That seems to have fixed it. Now it's at 4.6Ghz(ish) due to AVX offset. Thanks for the help though!
  19. The power settings is set to high performance in the bios, if that's what you meant?
  20. If there's a 2nd one, I can't find it in the settings.
  21. I have overclocked the 8700k to 4.8GHz on all cores, and the AVX is set to 3. The core speed fluctuates a lot when it's idle. However, when I play games, it goes to 4.8GHz. So what's happening? Cpu under load: Cpu when idle: Cpu -z
