  1. I terminated the ends pretty recently (like 3 weeks ago? the issue is a bit older) when I did I checked continuity with a multimeter - the cables are all in tact and wired up in matching ways. If you asked me whether I wired it matching or crosswired (A-A or A-B) I couldn't tell you though. Is that a potential cause?
  2. Appears that the link into the basement is limited to 100Mb - or at least plugging my laptop into that switch only allows me to transfer to it from my PC at 100Mb, while transfering to it when plugged into the ground floor router works at Gb. This is hella annoying the cable is pretty long and passes through multiple concrete walls / ceilings without cable channels O.o
  3. Yeah it's not a switch it's a router switch AP combo. But I use it as a switch + AP, got some for cheap a while ago. What do you mean by trunk cables? The cables that go from the devices to the switches and switches to the patch panels? Those are all Gb. One of the first things I checked^^
  4. Task manager network tab (what I show above) shows bit. The transfer window (what I showed there wasn't a windows file transfer so I can't take the corresponding snapshot) does show MB. Windows transfers when I do them tend to clock in at ~10MB/s
  5. The two switches are identical, they're Asus AC1900s which are gigabit switches (again I managed to get gigabit speeds to different point in the network through either of them)
  6. router at ground level, cat6 patch running to a switch on the first floor and basement each, my PC and NAS are plugged into those respectively
  7. Jup, you can see in the screenshot that they both show that they are hooked up at gigabit. And again, both managed to get 200Mb to my router
  8. I'm talking about writes inside the network here, not my connection to the internet. Though when I had 200Mb/s internet I got those speeds on both my NAS and my PC
  9. MSI Z170 titanium on my PC and uh... some AsRock B365 on the NAS. I don't have a great way to test it from all systems, but when I'm very close in the network to the NAS I can write to it at Gb. And my PC can write to other PCs that are close in the network at Gb, too I think.
  10. Huh. Windows task manager shows 90MBit/s. No idea whats wrong with the picture - shows it fine on my end
  11. Mb. I'm such an idiot - I even took a screenshot and forgot to put it in the post O.o
  12. Hi! I recently redid my homes networking, cat6 cableing, all gigabit switches. All my devices (at least those that support it) show gigabit connections. But when I write a large file from my computer to my NAS the speed is limited to ~100Mb/s significantly below the respective read and write speeds. Any ideas what might be going on?
  13. Not really needed for "direct die cooling" I'd guess. If you think about it, the hotplate of the cooler is basically an IHS in and of itself. Exactly what I was thinking If you use only the pads it'd take forever to do though (so thinn). So my best guess would be using alternating layers of this and doublesided tape.
  14. I mean over the thermal paste you often have a relevant temperature drop. Guess it's just that I compare this to "good" metal to metal contact and you compare it to thermal paste.
