  1. My ethernet was working last night. This morning it does not work. The green blinking light on both the router and the MB NIC are working when I plug in the ethernet cable. Device manager does NOT show the Intel I225 adaptor. Troubleshoot just tells me to plug in an ethernet cable. I have installed firmware and drivers and it still does not show up on the Device Manager and clearing CMOS. Is it dead?
  2. One of these fixed the problem since I did them both and it started working: 1) Uninstalled ethernet and refreshed through Device Manager and restart computer. 2) Restarted router through the ATT App. I unplugged and re-plugged the router multiple times while trying to figure out the problem and it still had this problem.
  3. ATT ATT supplied and also TP-Link Archer C5400. Both provide the same result. CAT6 100 or 200 Foot cable directly from router to PC. I should mention that I used this same cable before on my old internet provider and received 1gbps LAN transfers. So cable is working. 1.0gbps
  4. Hi, just upgraded to the 1Gbps internet plan. My PC is pretty far from my router so I only get 150mb/s. I ran an ethernet cable over to my PC hoping to achieve 1Gbps. However, I am only getting 180Mb DOWN and 7Mb UP. I have: 1. Disabled Wi-Fi 2. Tried multiple ethernet ports on the router including the one that says 1gbps. What could be the problem?
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. IDK but it occurs on the latest Ryzen x570 MB and the latest Razer Blade 15". So it's the enclosure.
  15. 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.

  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. What is the resolution? If you are running 4K then this is around normal FPS for GTA5 on a 2080.
  19. 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.
  20. I was afraid of that. Was gonna get a used and cheap 300 Series board but can't really know if the BIOS on that board will be updated or not for the 1600AF.
  21. Since the Ryzen 1600AF is a 12nm part which is part of the 400 Series MB and 2000 Series CPU launch. I'm wondering if using an old 300 Series board would require a BIOS update to the 2000 Series CPUs to be able to use the Ryzen 5 1600AF.
  22. @Donut417 @Thirdgen89GTA I know what plex pass does. I am currently using the non-PlexPass plugin still allows me to use Live TV and Hardware Transcoding. The only different I see is that the PlexPass Plugin gets updates sooner as it is a higher Version Number than the non-PlexPass Plugin. I think that is the only difference.
  23. This isn't exactly a server question just a I am wondering question so I don't think it belongs inside of Servers. What's the difference between Plex Media Server and Plex Media Server (PlexPass) if you already have a PlexPass? Because when I installed the Plugin only the Plex plugin was available and the PlexPass Plugin did not exist. If I am currently using the Plex Media Server Plugin and NOT the Plex Media Server (PlexPass) Plugin and I currently have PlexPass as well. Is there anything that I am missing out on by using the non-PlexPass Plugin? Thank
  24. To concur it will be fine. All of my current AA and AAA NiMH batteries are rated at 1.2V. I use a nitecore charger rated at 1.48V +/-1% and it is able to measure the voltage of the batteries it is currently charging. When they are fully charged they are anywhere from 1.46-1.5V. When they are drained and I put them in to charge, they start off at 1.2V.
  25. Just received this Folder Corruption like I stated in the Original Post. I suppose this means that the supposed Firmware Update did not fix the problem. All other folders are working. I cannot delete this folder, however, I can rename it.
