  1. Interesting, but that does make sense. My router reasoning was mentioned because I though you'd need internet connecting them even though I knew traffic wouldn't go through the router as 10Gb/s going through 1Gb/s back to 10Gb/s doesn't make sense. While on the topic of making things irrelevant. Would it work without the switch by connecting the PC's ethernet cable directly to the NAS to achieve 10Gb/s speed transfers?
  2. Can someone help me understand how 10Gb/s work? My understanding is that, for example: If I want to transfer files at 10Gb/s from my PC to my NAS. I have a Router with only 1Gb/s networking and use that 1Gb/s port to plug into a switch. That switch has to have at least 2x 10Gb/s port which I use to plug both the PC and the NAS into the switch's 2x 10Gb/s ports (assuming that both the PC and the NAS also have 10Gb/s capable networking hardware). Then I will achieve 10Gb/s between the PC/NAS?
  3. I can tell from the 36 and 16 that it is 3600Mhz at CL16. Which is why I said if 3600mhz is what you need then it is fine. I tried to give as much detail as possible rather than saying yes or no so you can have the information to make the decision yourself. Ultimately, it is up to you.
  4. No, there is not. As long as you are able to pick the Speed that you want then there is no downside. What I was talking about with lower capacity RAM being able to clock higher is for this reason. If you look at 4000Mhz and higher RAMs you will see 8GB sticks. However, 16GB sticks of DDR4 RAM can be found at 3600Mhz and lower. So if 3600Mhz and lower is something you are looking for then 16GB RAMs are fine for your use case.
  5. Thanks for chiming in. It needs it, but, that won't be a problem. The internal TB3 header is an Intel verification that is not required. This link shows that it can be fixed by shorting pins 3 and 5. https://egpu.io/forums/builds/thunderbolt-3-with-threadripper-on-a-asrock-x399-fatality-motherboard-help-needed/#post-59565
  6. Hi, I can answer these questions for you. Is really that much difference between 2 sticks of 16 GB or 4 sticks of 8GB? >>You just want to obtain dual channel or quad channel depending on your motherboard. There is no difference aside from being able to have a higher capacity. For example, if your mother has 4 RAM slots. Buying 2x16GB will allow you to fit in 2 more RAM slots if you ever need to expand later. I read that 2 sticks has better overclocking potential, but how much is that difference 5% or more ? >>The higher the RAM capacity the harder
  7. I'm going to install it in my desktop. I had to use my laptop to test the eGPU because my desktop does not have a TB3 port. Which was the point of this post. However, when testing, it did not use CPU. So the comparison is valid. It is not, heat is a problem too. I currently have 3 GPUs inside of my PC. Which lower down the clock speeds of the 3 GPUs spewing out heat. I'm using an x370, so my 3rd GPU is already running on PCIE 2.0 x4 (not 3.0). Which is the same as PCIE 3.0 x2. I already have the 3 GPUs and 1 eGPU. So, I would just need to buy 1x eGPU and this TB3 AIC. M
  8. I understand your reasoning. However, renders using GPUs will stack and from my testing GEN3 x16 internal vs x4 external is only a 6% difference --- for my rendering workload. Whereas for gaming, its 33% performance difference. I'd rather have the performance than not. Though, I was unable to test it at x2 because my laptop is a TB3 x4 and not an x2 port. Even if the performance of x2 is lower. Using 2 GPUs in x2 will give more performance than 1 GPU in x4. Not any inclination of price to performance, obviously. Time is more important to me.
  9. https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GC-TITAN-RIDGE-rev-20#kf Taking a look at the Gigabyte Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 Add-in-Card. It has 1x DP, 2x TB3, and 2x MiniDP. What I want to do is use these TB3 for eGPU for rendering and not for gaming. So I do not incur as much of a performance penalty. I am wondering since there are 2 TB3 ports on here. Would I be able to plug in 2x TB3 eGPU with each eGPU using x2 lanes each or can I only plug in 1x TB3 device?
  10. IDK but it occurs on the latest Ryzen x570 MB and the latest Razer Blade 15". So it's the enclosure.
  11. I'm looking for an external enclosure that fully supports a Samsung 860 EVO 4TB SSD. I have 2 SABRENT Enclosures that keep corrupting my SSD from folder corruption to whole FS corruption. The below are the enclosures I have used. 1) https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Tool-free-Enclosure-Optimized-EC-UASP/dp/B00OJ3UJ2S - Corruption problem on 4TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD but no problem for my 2TB Micron SSD. 2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NF6JQQ4 - Same problem as above 3) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FDTY299 - Did not support >2TB Capacity.

  12. Hello, I'm looking at something very specific for what I want. I like my monitor farther from me than what an average desk can supply. So I am looking at this desk frame, it is not available ATM but that is why I am here with this question in the first place. Here is the link: https://drop.com/buy/drop-lift-2-sit-to-stand-desk#overview The width of the stand can reach as far as 73.6" and the supplied tabletop is 48" or 60" x 27.5" x 0.75". I want/will make a tabletop of 72" x 40" x 1". I am just afraid that with the extra 12.5" (45%) depth from 27.5" to 40" that the table will lean
  13. I have an SSD connected to an external USB 3.0. When I close my laptop to make it go to sleep most of the time I do not unplug or turn off the external SSD. When I wake up the external SSD's case feels warm. Is this bad for the SSD or is it just simply fine and accumulating "Time on Hours" and draining laptop battery in the process.
  14. What is the resolution? If you are running 4K then this is around normal FPS for GTA5 on a 2080.
  15. Hi, since you stated 7th Gen i7 I will use the i7-7700HQ as a reference. Here is the link: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/97185/intel-core-i7-7700hq-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-80-ghz.html It states that the processor "Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type)" is "64 GB." When you click on the "?" it will reveal what this mean. Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) Max memory size refers to the maximum memory capacity supported by the processor. This means that the i7-7700HQ processor is capable of handling up to 64GB of RAM.
