  1. I already have the MB but I didn't have the chance to build it (thanks to AMD 5000 stock), so no idea... Anyway, I checked the case and the two cables coming from the front panel have a place on the board, so seems like it'll work.
  2. I have one of those currently that I use to split the audio of a PS4. I could do as you say and split the audio from the Nuc, but I need a way to input that digital audio signal on my main computer where the USB headphones are connected. Maybe something like this could work to receive the signal...
  3. Well, it works quite well. It has some delay but nothing to serious. The audio quality is way better that the crappy USB to Jack adapter that I had until now. The main problem is that Spotify goes mad when using the audio interface provided by pulseaudio with the network configuration. It can play songs, but the UI becomes unresponsive and ends up freezing (without crashing) I'll have to see if I can fix that. Thanks @anothertom
  4. Yeah.... you are right on that. I saw a few good options considering only Windows on both sides. What I mean is that in my setup, pulseaudio on Linux is not a problem. It just works. Anyway, I'm trying that solution right now, and is not looking too well
  5. Good find, thanks! I already tried something with pulseaudio a while ago, but the Windows part was the difficult one (although there are a few compiled binaries for Windows...). I'll try the way specified on the post. Yeah... that's the thing. Is 'a bit' overkill for my intended usage and not a cheap one either. I thought that I couldn't be that difficult, but seems I was dead wrong. Thanks for the ideas!
  6. Thanks for the reply. I really looked into this from every way I could think of: ways to transfer the signal over the network with low latency (I didn't know about those two alternative you suggested), ways to transfer it with a cable: Toslink? I would need a SPDIF IN interface, which seems to be something a consumer sound card doesn't usually have (and some are limited to 2.0 on the interface). USB? I didn't find a way to send or receive a signal over USB directly. USB to Toslink to USB? Maybe the most promising one, but I would require an external sound card o
  7. Hello. I have a setup with one Intel Nuc where I have Linux and a desktop computer with Windows 10. I'm currently using wireless headphones (SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless) connected to the Windows machine (over a USB coming from their receptor). I get a enough audio quality this way with some kind of 5.1 emulation from the Windows computer. Now, the Nuc doesn't have a proper audio output, just the HDMI connection that I could maybe split and pass the audio to other place, but I don't know how I could input that digital audio signal to my Windows machine to mix it with
  8. Thanks @WereCat @mrdoubtfull! I'll try it out then!
  9. Hello. I'm choosing parts for a new PC and was planning to use this motherboard and the Corsair 4000D Airflow case. In PCPartPicker if you select this two components, a warning appears saying the following: I'm finding little information about this case, but seems like it needs two USB 3.2 Gen 1 headers for the front panel (it has one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C and one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A). Now the Crosshair VIII Hero motherboard is listed on the ASUS site with the following under the USB section: 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 front panel connector port(s) If you c
  10. I got NordVPN a few months ago and is really good. Key points: - A lot of servers with good speeds. - Different connection methods available. - Good clients for the main operating systems. They have offers everytime I check their website, so it's easy to get a few years of service for like 50 bucks.
  11. Yeah, you can point any subdomain to the DDNS you already have using a CNAME. The only record you can't point is the bare domain, because it needs an A record. For the solution I proposed, you had to use a DNS zone provider with DDNS support.
  12. You could try changing the channel of your 5GHz network. Each of them uses a different range of frequencies, so maybe the current one you have is not completely compatible with your adapter.
  13. Since you can't point a bare domain using a CNAME to the DDNS record you already have, the only thing that occurs to me is to use a DDNS provider as DNS service for your whole domain. You could use Cloudflare, even they aren't a DDNS provider per-se, you can use their API to do so. Point your domain Nameservers to them (you have to create an account). Then after you make a DNS zone with your current dynamic IP, you can use ddclient (or any other ddns client) to update those records on the whole zone everytime your IP changes. I propose Cloudflare + ddclient, because bot
  14. @Mat!02 Not all routers are capable of that. Some would have multiple modes of working you can select like: router, bridge or switch. If your router can work as a switch, that all you need to do. If not, you could always use it as router anyway but you'll split your network in two different logical networks, so your internal router would need to be a DHCP server itself. Just remember to disable NAT to avoid a double NAT situation. Also, if you are using old hardware, you may need to use a crossover Ethernet cable to connect both routers.
